Smallville Season 11 #21

SV-21-01 SV-21-02A potentially deadly police chase ensues as Superman is clinging to life at batman drives his batmobile towards his Metropolis hideout. As time is ticking for the recent shot “Last Son of Krypton” , Clark tells Batman his real identity. Batman gets Nightwing to make a conference call to Lois who then informs Bats on what to do. To give him some help green arrow hijacks a police helicopter, bats then does what Lois instructed. He saves the day. Elsewhere Loomis shares with Mr. Freeze he knows the whereabouts of the world’s finest heroes….. To be continued.

For some reason Chris Cross is back. And I honestly don’t know why. The first few pages are so pointless its crazy. Then you fast forward to some actual batmobile tumbling and you have to say… This would only happen in a movie, not on that CW budget that the show had.

Mr. Miller may have lost some points this issue. He wrote Lois as someone to buckle under pressure. She basically gave up that she knew who Superman actually was, and I get that the love may be more important but……. HELLO. YOU CANT JUST BE LETTING OUT THE MANS SECRETS. Then you have Clark who just gives out his secret like Batman asked. With Batman in the show now, Green Arrow is becoming less and less needed.
