Can't Go Wrong with a Ginger

Phil Jimenez “Superwoman Volume 1: Who Killed Superwoman?” (DC Comics, 2017)

There’s an argument to be made that of all the ways that long standing characters were ill-treated in the Nu52, none had it worse than Lois Lane.  Without a doubt Lois has been the number one or two female character for decades. And she was treated rather poorly…

So here we are with rebirth, where Lois is turned into Superwoman! Only oh no! She’s more or less immediately killed off.  WTF DC.

The good news is that Lana Lang now has superpowers! It’s not that I’m particularly invested in Lana, but I appreciate their working with legacy characters are trying some new things.

Unfortunately it’s only partially successful.

It’s worth checking out, but far from one of the top tier DC titles.

Thanks to NetGalley and DC Comics for a review copy.
