Review | Justice League: Darkseid War: Superman #1 [2015] Francis Manapul

During the first act of Justice League: Darkseid War, Superman becomes the God of Strength on Apokolips and returns to Earth. He takes out an alien which infects the city of Metropolis. Jimmy Olsen asks for Superman for help however he throws him out of a diner leaving him unprotected against the alien infection. As he gets infected, Jimmy still persuades Superman to help. Superman freezes the city and frees it from the alien infection. Now Superman realizes he needs help while the world believes he has a new costume and everything is normal. Overall this is the weakest issue of the Darkseid War one-shots as it seems to be more of a filler than an actual supplement to the story. The Batman and the Flash one-shots gave us a reason why they are and need to be gods while the Superman treats his new status quo as a disease.
