For the final pre-CONVERGENCE issue of SUPERMAN, John Romita Jr. writes as well as pencils, and does a fine job. Superman is still trying to figure out the new power he’s discovered which is dangerous to anyone around him when used, and exhausts Clark Kent’s super-abilities for a while afterwards, a kind of super-intense heat beam, and I mean core of the sun hot. The Justice League is helping him, and they have some tests and lots of opinions, but no real answers. There’s a great scene afterwards where they all go to dinner in their civvies, and Clark gets drunk for the first time.
Next morning, a crisis arises, and as in the previous issue, Superman attempts to handle it, even though his powers are not yet fully restored. An interesting final scene with Lois leaves us with “To Be Continued.” I believe a new writer takes over after the break, I’ll be giving his work a try. I’ve been enjoying this book.
