Action Comics #3

Grant Morrison, Rags Morales, and Gene Ha bring us the third chapter of Superman's new origin in "World Against Superman".  The first part of the story takes us back to Krypton before its destruction, and we get to meet Jor-El, Lara, and other members of Kal-El's family.  Gene Ha was the right penciller for this sequence, as he has great talent for bringing futuristic worlds to life.  I hope this flashback contiues for the rest of the arc as we do not get the whole story here.  The second part of the issue takes place five years ago where Clark Kent suddenly looks and acts a lot like Peter Parker and I am not sure I am comfortable with that.  We also get to witness the origin of one of Superman's oldest enemies.  Rags Morales' continues delivering a consistent artistic experience, but the lack of Superman in this issue may bore you quickly.
