Oh yeah, this is what else I bought!!

Super Sons #1

..I hate Damien. I mean, I've always been a Superman guy-meaning, if I was in their superheroic positions, I'd be Superman. Not Batman. I'd be Luke Skywalker, not Han Solo. I'd be Cyclops (Claremont era), not Wolverine. That's just how I roll as a person.

So, I hate Damien.

That's what will make it hard for me to like this book, or to always keep up with it. I think once Jon gets past his shellshock of who Damien is, and how he lives his life, I think that could go to making this a really good book.

But it's hard for me to get over Damien.

The only one who can hurt Damien, put him down, put him in his place, and make him know just how little of a person he is, and just show him how little he knows, is Batman.

Father.

And there's a scene in here which almost kills me, thinking about how Damien must feel after his conversation with Father.

Then he gets to see how Clark is with Jon. That must just each Damien up. So he lashes out. Makes Jon to feel pathetic and small.

Hmm...am I convincing myself that there could be a really great book here...if the writers follow how I think?

Maybe. They'll have their work cut out for them.

Because I hate Damien. Wink

I think, after reading this, that your hatred of Damien can actually work to help you enjoy this title.

Not that I didn't enjoy issue #1, or issue #2, I did, greatly, but I think the main reason, or one of, is due to the same, similar feeling for the character of Damien that you hold. While you hate the character Damien, I rather like the fact that I find Damien to be a punk asshole. A very similar feeling though nowhere as strong  Cheesy However, that ... distaste ... shall we say, really works well here with the contrast of Jon's character. Good cop / bad cop. Sweet and Sour.

With Jon, I think he is too sweet at times. Especially in Action Comics. I like him, don't get me wrong. But I like him for the exact opposite of the reason I like Damien. Now true, Jon is being shown to be more meek than strong with Damien so far, but you have to know that is heading towards a point of emphasis in their duo-ship soon. Oh yes, there will be a confrontation.  Grin Damien will soon learn that nice and caring is not the same as being a welcome mat. That just because you are sweet, you are not weak.

Yeah, I really liked the first two issues of this title. It really is like eating the perfect dessert. You get that real sweet and tasty flavor (Jon) tamed by the citric acid, the tough of vinegar, the bit of heat (Damien) to round it out.

Man that sounds like a great dynamic with some rich built in drama.  I've got it in my wish list to get after some higher ranked books I have yet to buy.

Second issue was much improved, or at least, I took it much better for having story threads develop. I'll read this a while. After all, I may be having a hole develop in my collecting with dropping Flash. Or Green Arrow.
