Levitz and Ordway present the start of a clever little tale here where Lois is kidnapped by Superman worshippers mad she chose to marry Clark Kent over Superman! Brilliant! Superman saves a planet full of people who end up resenting him and Lex is interested in this planet. There is one continuity problem with this issue and that is that Identity Crisis is mentioned and Lex hasn’t been in charge of LexCorp since before Identity Crisis except for currently (But Bruce Wayne is is not around right now) and during 52 when Superman was powerless. Hmmm….maybe this takes place after Bruce returns? I don’t know but kind of annoying.

Superman, Batman, and Lois confront the cultists at their meeting and discover they are being led by a giant fire creature who seems to have been created or something Lex. Ordway’s artwork is beautiful and filled with detail it is breathtaking to look at. The story is top-notch too as Levitz is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. I wonder where this will go now with the planet Lexor. Cool stuff.
