    So overall this was a fine if maybe overly stuffed issue. Between all the characters and all the plots, this felt a bit too busy. Maybe I wanted to get more John Henry and less of these others. And frankly, I have little use for Gen13. Still, this wasn’t a bad issue. I was entertained. It was good to see these characters again. Simonson captures everyone’s voices nicely. Brigman’s art is solid and classic. But I wonder if this story would be better served with three issues instead of two.

    While this issue isn’t the Steel spotlight that I was hoping for when going into this book, it does present Steel in an awesome way where he is the last line of defense against Metropolis falling into complete chaos since he’s still out and about in a world where powers are gone and technology rules. A lot of battles throughout but the thing that will make you come back next issue is the shocking cliffhanger that spells doom for the Pre-Zero Hour Metropolis……….. Yeah, that’s a little over the top but I know I’m looking forward to issue two.

    If you want an issue full of extended actions scenes, but without much plot, then this is the issue for you. Its awesome seeing Steel in the spotlight, and Id love to see more of Steel in comic books, but this issue didnt seem like the best way to go about him.

    This read just like a Man of Steel comic book and Louise Simonson was entirely faithful in capturing the tone and adventure from that time. I only wish there had been more Steel and less of the niece and nephew and Gen13.
