Issue 6 of Superboy starts off well enough, with writer Jeff Lemire portraying Conner(Superboy)Kent and Tim(Red Robin)Drake having a talk atop Titans Tower.
It's a great couple of pages of character development/exploration, followed by Simon Valentine to Ivy University and a meet up with Ray(Atom)Palmer, one of the DCU's top scientists. It's downhill from there, though, as I predicted when the 'Return of Doomsday' tie-ins were announced, with Conner facing the monster that 'killed' Superman:
I haven't read every Super-book, but I don't recall Conner ever meeting Doomsday before, so how could he be stronger than Conner remembered?
Conner struggles bravely, but watching the kid get pummeled page after page is not my idea of a good story. It's a mismatch (much as the previous issue's race with Kid Flash was)in that Conner's power levels are not nearly those of the fully Kryptonian Superman's or Supergirl's, and neither of them have proven capable of beating the creature.
And then there's the fact that Mr. Lemire seems to have forgotten that Conner DIED bot long ago, and should not be as certain that the good guys always win. In other panels Conner wonders what Superman felt like before he died. Conner, of all people, would have some idea!
The story is 'to be continued' in Action Comics, the cover for which was recently previewed. Thankfully, Mr.Lemire can get back to regular stories next issue, as this crossover was no doubt forced upon him. Can't say I'm a fan of the artist on this one either. Marco Rudy did an okay job on the first two pages, but the action scenes were a murky mess. I enjoy Pier Gallo's work, and feel that Conner's been lucky to be drawn by Mr. Gallo in this book and Nicola Scott in Teen Titans.
Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, scheduled to play Marvel characters Captain America and Thor, respectively, in two of the summer's anticipated films, share the cover of the summer movie preview issue of USA Weekend!
