Superman #34

Superman's joy over reuniting Ulysses with his parents is short lived when the two orphans find themselves battling the man behind the recent attacks on Metropolis. First The Machinist manages to take control over Ulysses pitting him against his new best bud, but the tragedy for the Man of Steel comes later when his new friend takes deadly action to stop the madman which only leaves an innocent dead. Well, I guess it could have been worse. I mean Ulysses could have completely ignored every other conceivable option and just snapped the guy's neck. Right?

Next month's issue will tell readers quite a bit of what Geoff Johns has planned for Ulysses and how Superman reacts to his new friend's use of deadly force. (Zack Snyder suggests a high five.) Too by-the-numbers for my taste, "Men of Tomorrow" seems to have taken its expected dark turn leaving the continued bromance between the new friends in serious doubt. For fans.
