The Joker focuses his malevolent attention on Superman and Superman's circle of all too mortal friends; in short order Superman stands twice a killer, once as a hapless puppet and once as a vengeful titan. With Lois and the Joker's blood on his hands, the Last Son of Krypton vows to use his power to crush injustice regardless of what secular authorities—or the other heroes—might think of a self-appointed alien dictator. As costumed heroes consider whether they will stand with Superman or the law, Batman has made up his own mind; his decision will splinter the hero world and cost Batman a son. The garish art illustrates a violent world where grim faced icons snarl and lash out at each other; mirth seems reserved for the insane, smiling for the smugly victorious. While the idea of superheroes turned authoritarian despots is a familiar twist, writer Taylor still makes this an addictive soap opera of fights and larger than life characters. (Nov.)
