Thank you to the author/publisher for accepting my request to read and review this book

I’ve not read that much about Superman, but my boyfriend has kept me updated on the plot. That background knowledge really helped when reading this volume, as it was pretty confusing.

Superman Action Comics Volume 1: Path of Doom (Action Comics Vol. III, #1) – 128 pages – Published February 17th 2017 by DC Comics

The start took me by surprise; Lex Luthor as Superman, following the death of Clark. What’s he doing as Superman, though? What are his true motives?

One thing to remember with this is that DC have several universes, meaning there are different Clarks/Supermans on different worlds. And this issue involves a Superman who is not on his home planet, and an extra Clark that nobody was expecting…

I love Clark’s little family, and the way it’s affected by his being Superman and everything. There wasn’t much in this volume of the family together, though, as it is mainly based on the fight between Superman, Lex, Wonder Woman and Doomsday.

I would’ve liked more explanation in here on the whole situation with all the different Supermans, but I haven’t read any previous issues so I suppose they might explain it. (Maybe I’ll ask my boyfriend about it.)

One thing I haven’t yet mentioned is the mysterious figure commentating on the battle, even intervening and stealing Doomsday away. I’m really interested to see where that’s going.

As usual, the art is awesome. It’s not my favourite comic, but I still enjoyed it. 3.5 stars.
