Review – Super Sons Rebrith #2: Who needs Batman and Superman!!
- Writer: Peter Tomasi
- Artist: Jorge Jiménez
- Cover Artist: Jimenez and Sanchez
With the last issue ending on a cliff hanger I was sure this issue would no doubt be entertaining, and I wasn’t wrong. One of the many bright spots in this run are the characterization and the artwork. Supersons #2 delivers on all those with and more, first off, we get a prologue of Kid Amazo the main antagonist in the future, this kid has a serious anger issues, in a game of hide in seek, he finds and kills a family we are suppose assume is his.
Jon and Damian’s encounter with lex is almost ends early when Damian uses Jon as a decoy. Once again Damian manipulates Jon into helping him, it seems as if Damian doesn’t really care for Jon’s safety, he purposely uses Jon as bait just so he can get access to Lexcorp’s data files, however do find it strange Lex has no idea who Jon and Damian are. After escaping Lex the two dig up some information on a kid name Reggie aka (Kid Amazo).
Tracking Kid Amazo’s last position to a warehouse they investigate and find the family he had murdered in the prologue, right away Jon wasn’t to inform their dad’s, but Damian is determined to prove he doesn’t need Batmans help, the two of them argue and Jon leaves the scene and runs into a little girl who escaped during Kid Amazo crazy hide and go seek game outside the warehouse.
The issue ends with Damian and Jon being watched by each other’s fathers.
Conclusion: The one issue I have is that Jon is pretty much useless, he lacks any development, granted this could be on purpose, it’s still something to note. Damian on the other hand is a complete badass, with Tomasi doing the Batman and Robin runs its not surprising Damian’s the more developed character as of right now. The artwork once again is on point so theres no need to get into details about it, Jorge Jiménez is killing it.
Overall we got some story progression, so hopefully in the future we see the two encounter Kid Amazo, I know I cant wait.
