Superman Doomed continues to roll along with the first part of it’s Superdoom story line. Superman, now almost completely overtaken by the Doomsday virus has flown into deep  space to avoid hurting people only to find an unexpected ally. Meanwhile, Lana Lang and Steel launch themselves into space to track down the signal that is putting all of the residents of Smallville into a coma.

The Good

I am incredibly shocked at how not bad this Doomsday Superman event is. It has really put Superman into a difficult position as a person and as a hero, but has also allowed for the spotlight to shine on his supporting cast. Both Lana Lang and Steel both get big moments in this issue and I can’t even tell you last time Steel, let alone Lana Lang got this kind of positive exposure. They were great and I cant wait to read more of them later on. The supporting cast was even broadened some more to include the new Red Lantern Supergirl, who decides to set Superman on the pathleading to the baddie of the issue. The fight was cool and watching Superdoom just let loose on a planet was pretty awesome. There are a lot of things going on in the art department and all of it is good. Kuder’s depiction of Superdoom is suitably frightening and the destruction on Earth is chaotically beautiful.

The Bad

Supergirl and Superdoom Superman had a very interesting interaction, but something was just off. Superman acted shocked when he saw her as a Red Lantern even though an entire issue of Red Lanterns was devoted to having Guy Gardener explain to Superman about Red Lantern Supergirl. Supergirl’s reaction to Superman was a little odd too. I know she is trying to help him make the best of a bad situation, but he is infected with freaking Doomsday. No good is gonna come out of that.
