Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Mon-El, a superpowered refugee from the planet Daxam who has become Metropolis’ protector in Superman’s absence (he left earth to join survivors of his destroyed planet on a new home world), is thought to have been murdered as this story arc begins. But he has actually been imprisoned by General Sam Lane, head of a military unit devoted to ridding the world of all Kryptonians. This volume, which also includes a detailed retelling of Mon-El’s rather convoluted origin, assembles stories that originally appeared in various Superman-related comic books as part of the yearlong “New Krypton” story line, illustrated by a tag team of artists who share a basic competency but no particular distinction. Grades 9-12. --Gordon Flagg --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Time to close the books on Mon-El's sojourn on present-day Earth, which is too bad. I've gotten used to there being another cape in Metropolis whose power set rivals that of the Man of Steel's. To catch up some folks, let me re-introduce the premise of this continuing arc: Mon-El is doing Kal-El a solid. While Superman is off-planet keeping an eye on New Krypton, Mon-El has promised to substitute as Metropolis's primary protector. The Guardian and the Science Police, of course, have got the Daxamite's back. While Superman's been away (and starring in THE WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON limited series), Mon-El has taken up residence in the SUPERMAN title.

I hate to say it, but at this stage it may be best if you've been keeping track of what's been going down in Superman's corner of the DC universe for the past few years, let's say, from when the shrunken Kandorians at last regained their full stature. Else, your head may start spinning. The writers down the years have introduced many plot threads and in this trade there's a frantic attempt to resolve a grip of them. But, somewhere along the way, reader accessibility goes out the window.

Going into this trade, here's how things stand. Most of Earth now eye Kryptonians with hostility, thanks mostly to the scheming and xenophobic General Sam Lane (yes, Lois's dad). General Lane heads up the covert government organization Project 7734, and there's a decidedly sinister stench clinging to Project 7734. Lane's most recent effort to discredit the Kryptonians was to deploy Metallo, Reactron, and the other-dimensional sorceress Miribai into ambushing Mon-El in the Metropolis sewers, except that Miribai's magic had disguised her, Metallo, and Reactron so that the public saw Nightwing, Flamebird, and Supergirl in their stead.

I'm a fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes. I like Mon-El. Unfortunately this book's something of a mess. This book is part of Superman's storyline that seems like it's been going on and on and on for years. It's spread out over many separate book collections. This collection is not self-contained. You have to have read a lot of the recent Superman books to have even the smallest clue as to what's going on. I was pretty lost.

It's great Mon-El got some page-time; was nice to see the Legion cameo, but I can't recommend it. Save your money and check out the Absolute All-Star Superman instead.
