Synopsis

The breakneck pace of Grant Morrison's run on ACTION COMICS continues as the Superman of the present day must team up with suspiciously different versions of the Legion of Super-Heroes to save the jeans-wearing Superman of five years ago! Whose hand is that on the cover? Why, the leader of the Anti-Superman Army, of course!

Plus, a backup by Sholly Fisch and ChrisCross that spins directly out of the lead story!

Superman gets some help from time-traveling members of the Legion of Superheroes to deal with a threat that is hiding in plain sight. This story had a lot going on, and a ton of plot twists. Some of the paths taken to get to the end were a bit awkward and overly complicated, but the good moments were really good, including a really awesome Superboy/Legion ending. Backup story is another look into the past. This time, it's Clark Kent's last day in Smallville before heading to college. It's sweet and sentimental, with some amusing bits of dialogue. This was worth the slogging through all of the time-travel silliness.

Confusing time jumping and dialog? Heck yeah, especially on a first reading. But that is more than made up for when you pull back and realize it, like much of Morrison's work, will be explained in future issues. (Practically speaking this will be on your 3rd or 4th read through when you want backgroud for new issues just released.) It also rates high because you get the impression new characters are introduced to the Superman mythos who will have staying power.

I have read reviews that called this confusing due to the time jumping elements of the story. I was not confused, it was a nice little story that had some fun bits like Lightning Man losing his temper if he did not discharge. My biggest complaints were that it did not really have a sense of "urgency" or that they where ever at risk.That and the fact that the "New 52" once again simply is the old 52 but with high collars. I mean the identical Superboy and Legion first meeting as the Pre-Crisis?

The art was good, but the writing was the weakest part of this issue. The story was confusing with a lot of time jumping for story telling. The nemesis was dealt with rather quickly. The backup story was a nice setup for where Action Comics #1 started.

Far to much going on. Time travel and flashbacks makes the story somewhat hard to follow.
