Smallville Season 11 #15

After catching the criminal from last issue, Superman makes him apologize in front of all the onlookers that gathered. In that audience, none other than Bruce Wayne. Who begins to discuss with his “assistant” Barbra Gordon, the manner of Superman’s love life (Don’t worry he hasn’t a clue he’s actually Clark). Later at the Ace of Clubs, Lex and Wayne have a meeting about a joint project, and which ends in Lex turning down the offer. And just as soon as he does Superman arrives to question Lex about the “control chip” found in the Teleportation vest seen earlier (last issue). Now at Lexcorp R&D Lex reveals that, yes its his, but no he isn’t responsible past creating and branding the chip. The chip was stolen several weeks ago (back in issue 3) is where the tech came from. Clark believes he knows who’s responsible. A few moment later at Stryker’s Island. Superman is looking via video feed at Toyman.. Who is in Hyper-solitary. Else where in strykers, Batman pays a visit to Bruno Manheim who is reading a “Crime bible” (DC fans will know what that is). As he begins to question him about “Joe Chill” Superman shows up and they exchange blows… One being enough to phase Superman… To be continued.

Its weird. Whatever Batman hit superman with.. It isn’t green. Its a nice touch to change the norm. My guess is he’s got some kind of red sun emitting from his chest and hands. This Batman that Miller has created. Is different.. Yet the same, its almost like he looks like the one from the animated show, yet like its own version. Maybe its just me but I had hoped that there would have been an actor they took the face from. But meh. No matter.

The Art is a bit spotty. But its still a bit better than the last few issues. I know I can’t draw hands (nor can I draw) so I’m only guessing its not just me, but it’s a actually a challenging thing. But I feel like the artist just didn’t give not one damn.

It will be an interesting fight in the next issue.
