Lex Luthor and Brainiac both get solid revamps in this 45th anniversary issue of Action Comics. Creative talent for this outing includes Cary Bates, Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson, Marv Wolfman, Gil Kane and others.
When Kip Burland is drafted to foil the Death-Monger’s plan, it’s The Black Hood who answers to call. Red Circle’s attempt to relaunch its longtime hero falls short of exciting, with art by Gray Morrow, Doug Wildey and Al McWilliams.
As the Legion prepares for a celebration, Brainiac 5 seeks to cure an ally trapped by visions of alternate futures. LoSH regulars Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen anchor an impressive team of talent for the special anniversary issue.
