The Super Sons of Tomorrow arc ends here!!!!

After Savior AKA Future Tim Drake absorbed Superboy’s Solar Flare, he has saved everyone at the risk of being trapped in the eternal stream of time!!!! The Titans of Tomorrow, the Super Sons and Superman are all left to ponder the ramifications that may transpire due to Future Tim Drake’s sacrifice.

Where does this leave the Teen Titans? What will become of the team? Will the Super Sons no longer pursue their heroic patrols? Where does this leave Superman and what decisions will he make to ensure the survival of his son’s future?

Tomasi and Gleason presented a nice conclusion to the Super Sons of Tomorrow arc. There are some nice moments since this is a less action-packed issue, focusing more on the teams and their roles for what is to come in the future. There are some nice enjoyable moments where each of the teams are interacting with one another (some meeting for the first time), others getting acquainted.

Although I wonder, is it me, or did I expect for the Titans of Tomorrow to be a little more aggressive as they once were during the pre 52? Regardless it was nice to see Future Superman (Con-El) interact with Superman, possibly hinting at a definite return of the Kon-El Superboy that has gone missing prior to DC Rebirth. The dialogue is great and the strongest moments are between Superboy and Robin (Damian ) as they are now more aware of things that are far bigger and far beyond their control.

The artwork by Kirkham is fantastic and is fitting to the conclusion. One of my favorite pages is the page with Savior falling into the time stream, he just makes Savior (Future Tim Drake) look way more cooler than how he is usually drawn. Personally, i feel that he still looks more like Midnighter since he beat everyone to the punch with the whole trench coat and cowl look. Regardless the panel work is great and the renderings of each character on the pages are fun to look at. The last couple of pages are some of the best on this issue seeing all of the teams discussing with one another. Kirkham makes it look easy at portraying their personalities through their gestures. Morey’s colors beautifully blend with Kirkham’s pencils and inks making this a beautiful display of work for this concluding arc.

For anyone that is a Teen Titans, Super Sons, or Superman fan, this book is a solid addition to the pull list for Wednesday!
