When your son has been gone for three weeks as a preadolescent, comes back as a 17-year-old. You know that something has gone horribly wrong. The first thing you think of is experimentation, kryptonite or cloning. The brain tries to think of any solutions it can to understand how this could happen. As a parent, this would be tragic. You feel like you missed everything you feel guilt, anger.
The story takes off with the first adventure shortly after they (Lois and Jon) boarded. The Dominators of the Dominion attack the ship. Jon and Jor-El easily defeat them, sending them into hunger.
Lois quickly finds out that Superman is known as royalty around the universe. People gather to admire them, but it's not soon after they realize there is more then meets the eye to being universe royalty. Lois begins to be surrounded by people who need help. Jor-el agrees to help them. They attack The Khunds. Jor-El allows Jon to start the attack.
After the attack, Lois takes her leave back to Earth. Lois leaves because she feels Jon is in safe hands. Jon tells them she was right to leave. As soon as she left, it was within moments Jon first received the first hint That Jor-el is completely insane.
It would be heartbreaking for a parent to lose years with their children. You don’t even have to be a parent to be able to relate to that type of pain. Bendis wrote the parents (in this case Lois and Clark’s) reaction exactly how the characters would react. Clark being the scientist was trying to put everything together on how this could happen. Followed with I will figure it out later, I just want to embrace my son. As to where Lois was heartbroken in tears that she should have never left her son.
The Dynamic of the family is interesting. You have a loving father that just got his 17-year-old son back from his own dad, who brings his son back scared and much older than he was when he left. You are not going to be happy with your dad. I am sure Jor-el and Clark are headed down a slobber knocker of a fight.
This is a very interesting story with family involvement. Family dynamics are different for every family, but generally the same, you tend to love your family. Even if it's not your birth family that you love. There was a lot of artist on this book, which could have gone horribly wrong. It could have been extremely inconsistent, but it was not.
Bendis writing draws me in, I want to see what grandpa did, how did Jon become 17, how did we lose so many years. I want to see more how mama Lois reacts. This is a great book with a lot of messages about life between the lines.
