Summary
The two part story arc “Super Friends” showed us a side that both Batman and Superman we haven’t seen in a while. It didn’t show us the superheroes or the action fighting scenes, but the men who wear the capes. We forget that these men and women are more than just vigilante crime fighters or a god among humans , under their costumes they are normal people who just once in a while want to go and have a good night out. Tom King, Clay Mann, Seth Mann, and Mikel Janin work as a wonderful team to show us a double date that we all have been waiting for. To see Bruce and Clark understand each other and what their symbols mean shows us they are both working to finally become more than just friends, but super friends. If you love Tom King’s work, keep an eye out for a few Easter eggs that have been put in this issue; many of them are of other comics he has worked on before. What you expect of Bruce and Clark in a super hero night is exactly what you think… awkward.
