    Funny, i feel the exact opposite. Mongul attacks thd fortresses way too frequently. At this point it feels like a gag.

    I wish they'd just create a random new alien menace for Superman to slap the crap out of in 2 panels.

    Mongul is the villain of one of the best Superman stories of all, so I'd like to see him to have a little more gravitas. He should be the big alien warlord that DC seems to push Darkseid into. Darkseid is more of an abstract creature, who should exist on a different frequency. Literal, supreme order. Oppression. The New Gods being mythological beings and all.

    Mongul is the interplanetary menace.

    I'd like to see more Superman villains in general though, in the vein of Mongul and intergalactic tyrants. Stories that work as metaphors for our world, that Superman can punch out.

Because otherwise there'd be nothing for him to have a blind spot for.

    Until it's established that that was where their status quo left off, and that's really very much up in the air, the decision doesn't really come across that bad. If it turns out that Oz Effect is where their relationship left off, I'll agree with you. But I don't think that is the case.
    Honestly I would find Clark's trust in Jor-El a lot more believable if we had any clue of what this "chuck of missing story" entailed and if we had been given at least a basic idea of it before Jon went off into space with his grandfather. THAT is where my problem with the entire set up comes from. It felt like it went from Oz Effect straight into this, which is likely why it seems like a ridiculous thing for Clark and Lois to have done to a lot of people. It also doesn't help that Lois came back without Jon, didn't make Clark aware of her return and that she left Jon alone with him pretty early on on top of that. When looked at from that point of view it really does come across as a bad decision on their part. I'm not bashing Bendis I just think there was a better way to have handled a lot of this even if this way turns out fine in the end.

    Check out Lion Forge's Catalyst Prime Universe. Its the best damned superhero verse in comics. Diverse characters and interesting stories set in a universe where anyone can be a hero. And company that prides itself on representation both in the comics themselves and in the people behind them.

    Oh my goodness gracious! I've been bamboozled!

    Mongul has been a jobber for a long time unfortunately. I mean Zod sucker punched him into space during Jurgens Revenge. Manapul has him do a rehash of the Black Mercy in Trinity. It really sucks because I want someone to take Mongul and show what a total badass he is, but it doesn’t seem like anyone wants to. Guess I’ll just have to content myself with Keith David Mongul in Young Justice, now that guy was awesome.
