    Don't care for this Lois Lane. Earlier I hoped she was a fake duplicate, but I guess that ship has sailed. Or never existed - whatever.

    Front page is fun, as usual. Got a chuckle over the "Heroes in Crisis After Hours renewed."

    What's wrong with how lois has been portrayed in Action?

    Well, the corn syrup insulting line is annoying (can't say no one else has done before, but I don't like it). Not knowing who "me" is.

    I don't distinguish between the titles by the same writer at the time/storyline.

    She backwalked and said yes (when they were united in "no") on Jon going with Jor-El in the first place without talking to Jon's father first. She unilaterally changed a major parenting decision. Not saying they could have stopped Jon, but that was something that needed discussing first. There's both Lois and Clark being dumb enough to have Superman kiss Lois in public (and she pulled off her wig/disguise first!). Oh, and when she gets back, she doesn't contact Clark because "people are looking" but does turn in her book?! Makes no sense.

    There's leaving Jon with Jor-El. That's the single biggest one that makes her an absolutely neglectful mother. She called the man "creepy" and "a piece of work" and still left her child with a virtual stranger. Not important, but her "second puberty" line bugged the crap out of me - Jon should be on first puberty. Just leaving her child like that and seeming so unconcerned about it. That's when I thought she had to be under mental influence, and not really be her or be a dream. I already had issues with several things she did, but that's when I quit reading regularly. Did read her tell her dad (but not long enough to find out if she'd discussed that with Clark beforehand or betrayed his biggest secret without consent) and when Jon came back older (enough to know that Jor-El was, indeed, very bad and it was a mistake for Jon to be left with him).

    I really hope there's some reasonable explanation for all of this (leaving Jon, especially), but right now, Lois looks really, really bad to me.

    Maybe Bendis is creating one Lois daughter in the last scene.

    Finished reading it. Really enjoyed it, this was probably the best way to “tie-in” to Event Leviathan without derailing the main story. It’s nice to have Rose & Thorn back in the Superbooks, and Bendis is approaching Metropolis’ love of Superman from an interesting angle. Does the Metropolis Police Department turn a blind eye to other vigilantes because of Superman? It’s an interesting angle.

    Well there is that theory that the primary reason a lot of law enforcement, heroes and even the public approve of heroes like Batman initially is because Superman vouched for them. On some level, their trust of Clark is so complete that they expect him to deal with vigilantes that cross the line. This read a lot like that.

    Overall fun issue. There was that odd line about "nonsense" that I remember raising an eyebrow, and it's good that the kiss is finally being addressed. Love how Rose/Thorn was brought back into the fold and how the tie-in wasn't obnoxious. As always, I wish there were more pages. Loving Action Comics. I wish it was bimonthly again because I enjoy it that much, but I'm fine with monthly if the quality can keep up.

    True that, so glad I'm no longer buying this trash.

    Rose & Thorn isn’t a Bendis OC. She’s from the 90s.
