The mastermind behind the Alpha Lantern revolt is revealed on this cover, an interesting choice. There’s nothing particularly Supermanish about him, really, except the costume, though he reminds me of some of Superman’s villains of old like Brainiac. He’s built up quite a power base with this Alpha Lantern thing, and they’re all programmed to follow his every command. The Corps members sent to investigate the situation are in dire straits, as he’s even able to siphon off the power from their rings. It seems the former Guardian Ganthet is the real target here, but all the heroes are in big trouble. The only ray of hope is a cave full of robots, the original inhabitants of this planet, Grenda. I’m looking forward to what happens next. Recommended.
