Super Sons #3

Publisher: DC Comics

Supersons so far has been a really strong and enjoyable book. The interaction between Jon and Damian is so funny, especially how Jon reminds Damian that he is taller than him and Damian reminds Jon he is not part of the Teen Titans. In this issue, it is no different and I would say that it is probably some of the best banter, we have had yet.
However the actual dialogue in this issue, has a lot of exposition. It is a common theme that it is always better to show and not tell, and this book does suffer from this slightly, but also suffers in the fact that it is trying to cram so much information into one issue, as it has to explain a lot of backstory for anyone who is not familiar with the Amazo Virus arc.
The set-up for this Superfamily is actually really interesting as one member, effectively believes he doesn’t need the rest of his team. The villain is definitely one that is very strong powerwise, but we have had very little experience with the villain himself, to know how he is as a character.
In conclusion it is still a pretty strong issue, and has a few minor problems, but definitely meets the expectations of this series and I’m really interested how these two heroes will progress.
