During the course of the last four months, the Batman/Superman book has been involved in a storyline about a nuclear device that is going to power subterania, but is set to explode and take down as much of Gotham City as possible. Now, the plot there is quite weak and something that we have seen a number of times in the past. But, what makes this one different is that it involves a Superman who has virtually no powers and a Batman who is not Bruce Wayne. This set is more about the trust that these two characters are forced to have with each other to ensure that a city doesn't get destroyed in the process. But, that is also part of the problems.

Now, we can't blame writer Greg Pak for some of the problems that has been present in this series in the last four months. Much of it is because he really can't do much with the storyline. The Superman mystery is running in his own series and the Batman situation is running in how own books. So, Pak is forced to make a story that can only discuss what has already been discussed. In the regular Batman books, Clark did learn what exactly happened to Bruce Wayne, but, so far he has no clue who is under the new Batman costume. This issue, he does get some closure by having a conversation with someone who used to be a close friend of his but now has no clue who he even is. The same can be said for the actual villain of this arc. Sure, we had to wait for the big disclose that came in the newest issue of Action Comics(please note, read Action Comics before you read this issue) to learn that this comic was also going to play a bigger part in the overall Superman "Truth" saga. Batman/Superman #24 was quite honestly rather disappointing. Despite having some exciting moments, it felt rather out of place, with the rushed ending not helping matters. It does however tease an intriguing future for the series, and I can only hope that it doesn't disappoint. I give this issue a 6 out of 10.
