Robin and Superboy get their own team-up title in Super Sons. Benched by Batman for not taking his studies more seriously, a bored Damian shows up in Kansas to see how the other half lives. Hiding in a disguise as the school bus driver, Damian spends some time getting a measure of Jon Kent before deciding to reveal himself.
Super Sons #1 plays up the differences of the two super-hero children while showing us Damian as a bad influence who will likely get Jon into lots of trouble. Convincing Superboy to investigate break-ins in Metropolis, the pair head out only to run into the city’s new hero (and Superman’s former arch-nemesis) while looking into robberies at LexCorp facilities.
As Oz prepares for war allegiances continue to shift. Now a prisoner of Glinda (Joely Richardson), Dorothy (Adria Arjona) struggles with the truth about Lucas (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) now revealed to be Glinda‘s (Joely Richardson) husband Rowan. Glinda can see her husband is conflicted, and urges Rowan to take the only possible step to end his feelings for Dorothy – by killing her. It appears Lucas/Rowan will need to choose between the love he remembers and the new feelings which he can’t seem to reconcile with Glinda and their life together.
“Sinking Day” plays on the incompetence of Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk). After her boss costs Wayne Securities their oldest client, raising the ire of Van’s father (Corbin Bernsen), Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) rallies the team to land an even bigger client in Atlantis. Despite his obvious ineptitude, Van shows surprising skill in helping to schmooze the Atlantians and help close the biggest deal the company has ever seen. Directed by Broken Lizard‘s Jay Chandrasekhar, the latest episode has a goofy energy that is highlighted by Tudyk’s comic timing while showing us that Van Wayne does have some game, even if I’m not sure anyone knows what that game might be. Bernsen is unexpectedly terrific as Van’s far more successful father; here’s hoping we see more of him this season.
