Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 comic reviewI may have enjoyed Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30 a bit more if the entire story hadn’t been a misdirect. That said, fans of Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps should still have fun with the Green Lantern’s return to Earth to investigate Superman‘s recent encounter with Parallax and news that Sinestro is alive in the anti-matter dimension on Qward.

While Hal’s fight of a Parallax-controlled Superman turns out to be all in the Green Lantern’s mind, the action is still pretty solid until the hallucination is broken. Hal’s reasoning of who is altering his reality leads into next month’s return of Hector Hammond, who apparently needs his old nemesis’ help.

Super Powers! #1

Super Powers! #1

Mainly targeting younger readers, Super Powers #1! is a fun (if lightweight) all-ages comic featuring DC’s big three heroes. Opening in Gotham City where Batman has disappeared, Superman discovers clues leading him to discover Braniac is responsible. With the help of Wonder Woman who traces Braniac to New Krypton, the Big Blue Boy Scout finds and frees the Dark Knight Detective, leaving the heroes to deal with the villain. Personally, because it’s geared to a younger audience, I’m a little disappointed that Baltazar and Aureliani (who tag-team the writing and drawing of the comic) didn’t go for more classic Super Powers or Super Friends costumes of the heroes. Still, kids should enjoy this one. For fans.

[DC, $2.99]

Supergirl - The Last Children of Krypton

Superman‘s (Tyler Hoechlin) time in National City comes to a close as he and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) team-up to fight Metallo (Frederick Schmidt) and Cadmus (which apparently isn’t so much a secret government organization but a group of mad scientists and very public terrorists). While enjoying her time with Clark saving the day, Kara struggles with her work life as her first day as a reporter doesn’t go as planned. News that Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) is taking a leave of absence doesn’t help matters any. However, when push comes to shove, Supergirl finds she has plenty of family sticking around starting with her sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) – who is given the opportunity to kick her share of ass in this episode.

Supergirl - The Adventures of Supergirl

With Supergirl moving from CBS and joining the other DC Comics television properties on The CW there were questions about how much the show would change. Picking up just seconds after the First Season finale, Supergirl kicks off its Second Season with a strong opener. The entire core cast returns with some important additions and minor tweaks. First, the DEO has moved from their lonely cave to a downtown skyscraper – and has a new employee in Winn (Jeremy Jordan) who is now in far better position to help Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Second, the city is now also home to Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath), the stepsister of the world’s wealthiest federal prisoner. And then, of course, there’s Superman.
