    This took me a little longer than expected, but life got in the way. After kicking off with a two-parter by Rob William and Guillem March about Supes and Lex, Dan Jurgens returns with two major arcs that ultimately work together as one. The first of these is “The Oz Effect” and finally reveals the identity of the enigmatic Mr. Oz. While I won’t reveal those secrets here, one of the best story developments is the moment in which Superman ponders whether the world is far too corrupt to save.

After kicking off with a two-parter by Rob William and Guillem March about Supes and Lex, Dan Jurgens returns with two major arcs that ultimately work together as one. The first of these is “The Oz Effect” and finally reveals the identity of the enigmatic Mr. Oz. While I won’t reveal those secrets here, one of the best story developments is the moment in which Superman ponders whether the world is far too corrupt to save. It’s graphically represented by a series of word bubbles surrounding the hangdog Man of Steel as he has a bit of personal time. This leads straight into “Booster Shot”, a time-travelling adventure with Booster Gold that incorporates multiple threads of Superman history. Really, it’s a big ol’ fan-service arc, but it’s fun while it lasts. The volume peters out a bit with the final two stories, extracts from annuals and specials about the life of Lex Luthor. While they are fascinating in and of themselves, and Francis Manapul’s art is sublime, they do feel slightly incongruous after two fairly major arcs. Now that this is done, I head boldly into the Brian Michael Bendis era. Been looking forward to that.

    A very lackluster end by Dan Jurgens. The first two issues by Williams were honestly throw away issues that again tried to play with the Superman and Super Lex relationship. Then we get to the big Oz Effect event. I honestly just didn't get the point of Oz Effect. Mr. Oz believes that the nature of humankind is evil and that Superman is wasting his power on humanity. That no matter what humanity will never embrace his symbol of hope. To prove this he orchestrates multiple events of cruelty and d A very lackluster end by Dan Jurgens. The first two issues by Williams were honestly throw away issues that again tried to play with the Superman and Super Lex relationship. Then we get to the big Oz Effect event. I honestly just didn't get the point of Oz Effect. Mr. Oz believes that the nature of humankind is evil and that Superman is wasting his power on humanity. That no matter what humanity will never embrace his symbol of hope. To prove this he orchestrates multiple events of cruelty and destruction. Where his followers are influencing and manipulating people to make bad decisions. He then tries to use these manipulated scenarios to convince the Kents to leave Earth and start a new Krypton called Bliss. The characterization of Jor-el felt very wishy-washy as well as his interactions with his reunited son. To me it destroyed the image of Jor-el as part of the reason why Kal-el is Superman. But the biggest problem I had was that it had no connection to Geoff Johns' Doomsday Clock. Other than Dr. Manhattan being the force that spared Jor-el it revealed nothing about Dr. Manhattan's intentions. After Oz Effect is the slog "Booster Shot". Superman for some reason needing proof that Mr. Oz was indeed Jor-el, decides to go back in time. This creates a long Booster Gold adventure that holds no importance other than to have an ending were Superman watches his parents die while not being allowed to stop it. It shoehorned in a Zod story arc that was just immature and tedious while a slightly more interesting Lois Lane story happens in the background. One other thing that bothered me about this end run was how the artwork near the final issues was just creepy. Like it wasn't bad but the angles of Superman on certain pages... I almost mistook him for Bizarro.

    "Booster Shot" was good fun, lots of time-hopping adventure with a solid "shadow of our fathers" theme overlaying the entire thing (even touched upon with Zod's kid). I thought "The Oz Effect" arc was a little clunky though - I guess the return of Jor-El should feel bigger or more definite, but I wanted more than a shallow "humans are flawed and I'll save you from them" from this arc. Only at the very end did Jor-El's return rise above supervillain-level motivation.

Only at the very end did Jor-El's return rise above supervillain-level motivation. You never believed Clark might be tempted to leave with Jor-El, so he's just a misguided evil man until we see how he's been manipulated in turn. And since he's probably being manipulated by a character I refuse to acknowledge being part of DC's superhero universe, I expect (and hope) I'll never see how this particular thread plays out.

    Rebirth Action Comics comes to an end without any major missteps, but also without anything that stuck out to me as amazing either. All the stories/arcs in the volume were good, but never crossed the line to exceptional. It's a bit of a bummer after it started so strong. But overall the volume is still enjoyable.

    The majority of this final installment in Dan Jurgens's run deals with the bombshell truth of who the enigmatic Mr. Oz is. It sparks a big retcon, an interesting adventure, and an exploration into Clark's Kryptonian history in fascinating ways. It also leads into a team-up with Booster Gold, who always brings the fun! A solid wrapping up of Jurgens's story! The majority of this final installment in Dan Jurgens's run deals with the bombshell truth of who the enigmatic Mr. Oz is.

    I surprisingly enjoyed this more than the fourth Tomasi Superman solo book. The main meat of this book had Superman go through a hell of a lot and I’m glad that booster gold got some time in as well!

    Enjoyable but definitely not nearly as solid as the first. 2 volumes. Also tons of set up with Mr. Oz to only be extremely disappointed with who he really is.

    Jurgens run on the Rebirth of Action comics comes to a satisfying close, though it wasn't fanciful or fun as the rest. Jurgens run on the Rebirth of Action comics comes to a satisfying close, though it wasn't fanciful or fun as the rest.
