Superman 657 – Arion foretells the future


Superman 657 (Dec. 06) is the first half of a two part story which sees Arion tell of the future to come, by Busiek, Pacheco and Merino.


There are some truly wonderful visuals in this tale, I cannot fault it for that.  But aside from that, there is little here I find entertaining.


Arion tells Superman, Perry White, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen about the eventual rise of a villain called Khyber, and the world shattering battle that erupts to take him down, eight years in the future.


There are loads of cameos for various heroes and villains, but nothing that in any way impacts the real development of the characters.  Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane are a part of the future struggle.


Arion gets only halfway through his story in this issue, which concludes in the following one.
