I really really loved this issue ! DON'T LEAVE GEORGE PLEASE !!!
The only problem i have is that if this is supposed to be a more bad ass/ less boy scout-ish Superman why is he letting some General talk smack to him, i can understand his portrayal in Action where he is safely hiding in some underground military base and sending whatever he can at him, but to talk smack to his face? man that's takes either a lot of balls or a whole lot of stupidity, how does he know that Superman wont lose his temper and get tired of General Lane antagonizing him? he really doesn't right now.
I mean Superman could do something subtle to get back at him like giving him cancer with his X-ray vision or a heart attack with his heat vision(it's possible if used subtlety i guess)and how could Gen Lane prove otherwise? and even if he could there ain't jack he could do about it.
It's tantamount to me going up to Mike Tyson and telling him what a stupid loser he is.
Tho i'm sure this is not Perez's idea and it's probably editorially mandated to coincide with Morrison's Action comic.
