Stop Forcing Beliefs

Action Comics #849

This was a pretty solid conclusion to Nicieza's two-part fill in arc of Action Comics. Religion in comics is always ripe for controversy, especially an issue like this which deals a lot with whether or not it is okay to force your beliefs on others (In my opinion, it is not and never okay to do that). But putting aside the controversy that this issue may create, it was very good. I like Superman stories that deal with bigger questions than just the typical Superman vs. Crazy Villain. It was good to see Superman calling on the help of Oracle. She hasn't been utilized in her superhero information broker role in a while. From things mentioned, it seems that this storyline takes place before the Zod storyline as well. I actually kind of felt back for Father Hightower at the end of this issue, even though he was a total prick. Very good issue.
