    Good art but a meandering story. Natasha's brother has been kidnapped and that isn't the main story in the book , just a subplot with no urgency on trying to find a little boy who's been taken by a monster. Instead it's about Lana who's all wishy-washy about her powers in the wake of Superman: Reborn. The series lacks any kind of direction, with all these flashbacks to different time periods that don't really connect with the rest of the story. John Henry and Natasha are severely underused.

Definitely the worst book to come out of Rebirth.

    Ouch this series... World: The art is okay for the most part. I think the facial expressions are a but off making the emotions a bit wonky. Also I hate Natasha's suit, it's just ugly, please redesign it. The world building is fine for what it is. It's trying hard to establish a place for Lana to be in since Rebirth and overall all the callbacks to her past is good, but it's choppy and the writing does it no favours. Story: You gotta walk before you run and this series does not understand that. Sup Ouch this series... World: The art is okay for the most part.

Story: You gotta walk before you run and this series does not understand that. Superman Red Son is good because it needs Good Superman to be a mirror for it. Here Lana is unstable and all over the place but since Rebirth we've not seen normal Superwoman and we are already seeing the all over the place and play on Superwoman. That's why this book is failing. It's all over the place and writing is choppy and it does not even have a foundation built before playing on all these concepts. This series and the story had been so disappointing. Characters: Lana is all over the place. One issue she's overcome her anxiety the next issue it's something else. I don't need a perfect character, flaws makes for real and interesting characters. Inconsistent characters are just because if poor writing. This is poor writing. Irons has nothing to do except pine and Natasha is wasted (she needs to be on the Teen Titans). The villain this story....zzz don't care. Writing is so bad at the moment it's making me sad. Lana deserves better. Onward to the next book! *read individual issues*

Lana is back saving the world as Superwoman. Glad to see that Lana still had her powers. Hope things are still working out with John Henry. Sad about what happened to Zeke. Hope they find him and bring him back home. The radioactive guy, Skull, seems a little bit creepy. Skyhook seems to be the creepiest of all. Hope he never gets out of jail since he kidnapped all those kids.

    This is insane in the only way that comic books can be. An example of how superhero comic books can offer something different to blockbusters, while also revealing what makes the movies such duds.

    This was ... okay. A lot of the action in the first few issues is taking place off stage, in Superman comics, so I often had no idea what was going on, which was annoying. Superman is dead - Superman is alive - Lois Lane is dead - Lois Lane is alive - Superwoman is dying - Superwoman lost her powers - Superwoman has her powers - what????? I honestly don't even know what the plot was. Zeke was kidnapped by some random bad guy (Skyhook?) YEARS ago and now all of a sudden they are trying to find hi This was ... okay.

YEARS ago and now all of a sudden they are trying to find him - bad guy is all bwahahaha - what were they doing for the last few years?? It's annoying that Superwoman spends most of the volume feeling conflicted and vulnerable, while the men in her life (well, John Henry) are strong. Can you imagine Superman or Batman cowering? Nah. The art in most issues is good, the characters have real faces with that spark of life, but the illustrator and Jimenez must not have been collaborating very well, because the dialogue didn't always go with the facial expressions in the first issue. Art in fourth issue was very flat. issue 8: writer Phil Jimenez, art Jack Herbert & Stephen Segovia - clearly these guys were not talking to each other because the dialogue was out of synch with the facial expressions issue 9: writer K. Perkins, art Stephen Segovia issue 10 writer K. Perkins art Stephen Segovia issue 11: writer K. Perkins, art Jose Luis - for some reason the faces he drew just look dead-eyed issue 12: writer K. Perkins, art Stephen Segovia

    I think the major problem with this book is that Lana Lang, while trying to help and be a hero of sorts, actually comes off as kind of self centered and prone to selfish behavior. She lost her powers, so she kind of is questioning her role in the superman team, but after getting a super suit that bring hers powers back, she heads straight back into the fight. And the main problem that I see in this book is that she doesn't really consider anyone's opinions or feelings, she barrels forward and ho I think the major problem with this book is that Lana Lang, while trying to help and be a hero of sorts, actually comes off as kind of self centered and prone to selfish behavior.

And the main problem that I see in this book is that she doesn't really consider anyone's opinions or feelings, she barrels forward and hopes for the best...which isn't really the best strategy to be honest. Even at the end of the book, when they finally find what they are looking for, she flies away smiling and happy at a job well done, but doesn't pause to check on possible injuries or issues with the person she saved. It's almost like a superman parody book instead of a superman team book. The plot meanders along with Lana as her unfocused view of the situation diverts her from paying attention to her friends and confidants. She stampede her way through the issue and sometimes ends up losing the fight because of it. I feel this book has potential, but for now, its a bit of frustrating read. The art for the most part is pretty good, however there are moments where it does look a bit 90's. Overall, I would say the art is the best thing about the book. Recommended only for die hard fans of Lana Lang.

    Still rather overly wordy, and suffers from so much crossoveritis... This one has no notes either on if it is Superman or Superman Action Comics that's connected... I am at least going to read Superman Reborn to try and make sense of it... A mess, just like Lana. I do like seeing broken heros who overcome their issues, but sometimes she just comes across as a immature child. This volume did see her be a little less whiney at least, but the loss of Lois takes away some. Still rather overly wordy, and suffers from so much crossoveritis...

    This was an incredibly mopey and depressing graphic novel as Lana Lang does nothing but mope and whine until the very end. It was such a drag fest that they actually made jokes about taking lithium to try and lighten the mood. What a waste of a wonderful character and concept.

    3.5 Stars. After the events of Volume 1 and 'Superman Reborn', we find Superwoman (Lana Lang) in a highly de-powered state, but still alive. Losing a lot of confidence, she doesn't want to carry on, but Clark shows her that Superwoman is popular and making a difference. So, dawning the Insect Queen Armor (really confused about where this came from... don't remember it at all), she begins to explore her powers again, the armor having retained her abilities.

So, dawning the Insect Queen Armor (really confused about where this came from... don't remember it at all), she begins to explore her powers again, the armor having retained her abilities. In addition to power rediscovery, most of this Volume revolves around an issue that has come up with Lana's boyfriend, John Henry Irons (known to us as Steel) and his family. John's brother Crash is a known criminal, primarily as an arms dealer. When his youngest son Zeke is abducted by a creepy monster known as Skyhook, tense family issues and gang warfare are the norm, but is Lana's recovery taking up too much of Steel's focus? Will Crash back down from war? Obviously, Lana regains her powers ("they weren't in the armor, but buried deep inside me all along"...) and takes down Skyhook, but the slightly confusing elements of the story made this one feel slightly incomplete and a little hard to follow at times. Still somewhat good, but I don't know where this story can go next. I'll hang on for another Volume.

    Man, the quality on this really took a dive. The first two issues were attempting to reconcile the book with a some kind of new continuity that was apparently established elsewhere, and were pretty difficult to parse. And then the last three issue, about Lana and the Ironses (Irins? Ironpoda?) going after a villain that kidnapped Zeke, John Henry’s nephew and Nat’s little brother, were somehow worse.

The Atomic Skull is going straight and behaving very oddly for seemingly no reason (is he supposed to be comedic relief?). Without Phil Jimenez (who wrote one of the issues trying to retcon without retconning), this book floundered quite badly.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoy Lana Lang as Superwoman. I think giving Lana powers was a fresh take on the character. She adds needed diversity to a universe with more male heroes than female. I am glad she got her powers back after the end of volume one. Though I did not enjoy volume two as much. Perkins tried to make a point that Lana is her own worst enemy, but I find the message lost in the plot. I am glad Lana finds her strength and resolve to continue working as Superwoman.

    I wasn't offended by it, I was just so bored. Superwoman loses her powers but gets them right back within 2 issues? John Henry Irons family drama, but very convoluted and seems like there are hardly any actual stakes? This volume seemed to be very pointless. I wasn't offended by it, I was just so bored.

    Really loved Phil Jimenez's first volume of the series. Was my favorite of the Rebirth books. A new writer takes over here and it's a bit of a disappointment. Still, I like the idea of a super-powered Lana Lang. Really loved Phil Jimenez's first volume of the series. Was my favorite of the Rebirth books.

    I'm a lifelong Superman fan and a sucker for the Superman family and yet this book does nothing for me. I don't get who it's for or what it's about.

    Story is a bit predictable is some places...and jumps around to the point I am not sure if some story elements were introduced before.

    This would barely have been a three out of five star book until the second to last page when Superwoman says "...the power was inside me the entire time...", and that just made it so much worse.
