The Terrifics…terminated! The team has called it quits and gone their separate ways-with less-than-terrific results. Plastic Man meets his estranged wife and son, now developing his own plastic powers; Metamorpho is still stuck in his human form as Rex Mason, unemployed, unqualified and going broke; Phantom Girl’s stuck in an arranged marriage back on her homeworld of Bgztl; and Mr. Terrific hunts the escaped Doc Dread, who travels the Multiverse collecting alternate Mr. Terrifics for murder-sport.

The Silencer finds herself in a deadly showdown with a pair of killers-Quietus and Gunn-as well as a giant kaiju monster at a Superman theme park! (No refunds given, park-goers.) If she can shoot her way out of that trouble, she’ll still have to track down Talia’s body before Leviathan can resurrect her. Of course, them being a secret evil criminal organization and all, they’ll probably have backup plans inside of contingencies wrapped up in their true motivations. At any rate, someone’s getting their soul eaten whether they like it or not!

Is there anything worse than a family vacation? Your spouse grouses, the kids complain, rest-stop food is gross-to make things worse, Silencer finds not one, but TWO deadly assassins on her tail! Talia al Ghul is in desperate need of a Lazarus Pit bath, and to get one she needs her top assassin Wishbone to throw Silencer off the trail! Problem is, Silencer isn’t the only one on the hunt. Her rival Quietus needs Talia out of the picture, and the whole thing devolves into a mind-bending shootout at the amusement park, where Silencer’s hubby and kiddie get caught in the crossfire. That’s it-next year it’s a “staycation”!

So far, Silencer’s family vacation gets zero stars on review websites, and things are only looking worse from here on out. Silencer races to stop Talia al Ghul’s loyalists from reviving her in a Lazarus Pit, but she’s got TWO heavy hitters on her tail: meta-hitman Quietus and mystical psycho Wishbone, who’s about to unleash some body-swapping shenanigans on everyone involved with this caper. And are you ready for a trip to Action Land, the Superman theme park? “Hell-iday Road” starts here!

Review: New Super-Man Vol. 2 Coming to America

As I remember growing up we relied on our parent and other relatives to show us what to do. This extended to our lives in school, as some of us may remember that one teacher who you connected to, and you thought knew everything about life. Eventually, as you leave school and away from the trappings of family and friends, the search for guidance becomes more difficult. For those of us in the military, we followed our superiors, but sometimes we meet someone, as I did, who guided us along and told you what things you must do to move on up the ladder. My relationship with that person extends to today, and I always liken to how Yoda thought Luke the ways of the force. That theme extends to comics, like DC ComicsNew Super-Man. In the second volume of New Super-Man, Kong Kenna struggles with new found powers and the mystery of his mother’s death, as these issues will eventually collide.

We find Lex Luthor in Shanghai introducing the Justice League of China, as not only Kong struggles with the spotlight, so does the rest of the JLC. As Kong stills struggles with his powers, he seeks the help of Master I -Ching, a powerful master, who is at first, reluctant to help the young upstart. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman uncovers and thwarts a plot by the Alpaca, the Chinese Joker and the actual brother of the Chinese Batman.  As Lex Luthor usually has an ulterior motive, he brings the JLC to the USA, and brings Superman to face off against China White Triad a new supervillain team in Metropolis. Among all this, Superman arrives and tries to neutralize the skirmish between the two groups, as an army of demons is unleashed on the city, and the JLC and Superman are the only ones who can save it. Wonder Woman, also uncovers that someone whom everyone thought was dead, is still alive, but may not be themselves. As they come back to China, they face off against a Kaiju from the sea, while at the same time, fighting off against a powerful Man Of Steel clone, known as Superman Zero. By book’s end, one member of the JLC has an secret power and a person Kong trusted, turns to be a person he longer for.

Overall, this volume is a game changing new chapter to this already superior story. It feels like one which pushes boundaries, challenges tropes, and proves that we need more diversity. The story by Gene Luen Yang is exciting, complicated, and intelligent. The art by Billy Tan and Viktor Bogdanovic is gorgeous. Altogether, one of the best series that DC has ever put together.
