In the last issue, we see Robin and Superboy approach by each other’s fathers, but before that, we are get more back story on Kid Amazo and his family. One thing we find out is that his family all had superpowers and they called themselves the Super Duffys. Back when the original Amazo was taken out by the Justice League, at the time evil Lex Luthor was able to get his hands on a synthetic version of the Amazo program, and was able to turn it into a human virus. The virus effected thousands, eventually a vaccine was made and used, 97% of infected was cure, and the 3% was Reggie and his family.
All of this comes to light by Kid Amazo’s sister Sara, she all tells them Kid Amazo has gotten has hands on the amazo armor that was in lexcorp’s possession. A twist in the issue comes when Sara’s revealed to be an android made by her brother. Sara helps the Supersons fight against Amazo’s android clones, even with Sara’s help Superboy and Robin are still overwhelmed.
Conclusion: Given us a quick backstory about kid Amazo and Sara was good for plot purposes, what makes Supersons so funny is the relationship between Damian and Jon. Despite being in a dangerous situation Tomasi reminds us these two are just children. Look at Robin, teenagers that have experience a lot at a young age usually want to prove his or her independences, Jonathan kent on the other hand is the kid that’s raised with good values but was shelter by those same values, similar to his father. Now that Amazo has made his move to take out robin and Superboy, I expect the final showdown between the three of them in the upcoming issue.
