I liked this comic very much it is "the beginning of the fall of McCarthy." Every one is looking for the two Kryptonians, Nightwing, and Flamebird. Including the Guardian, the Daximite Mon-El and the science police. With that amount of force against them you can probably guess that they were captured. This is true, they are captured, Nightwing is stripped of the armband which is keeping him alive. They are put into a room that replicates the red sun's rays and become completely powerless. After hearing that the Kryptonians are defending earth from agents of Zod, the Guardian turns on the government and defends the Kryptonians. (Mon-El does the same thing) Then the Kryptonians demonstrate what a real Kryptonian can do, and point out that
without all the fancy gagets, the science police are nothing.
The reference to the Red Scare is uncanny. It shows when people began to think the McCarthy was crazy, and how he was nothing but a man sitting behind a desk, using fear to twist the minds of others, just to be re-elected.
The comic its self was very good, recently I have not liked action comic. I have found the stories dull, and complicated. But I have liked the McCarthy references very much. This issue had a good storie the references were even improved, and it was easy to fallow.
