In what seems to be a break in tradition, the prologue for issue #4 is NOT a Kid Amazo scene. Instead, it’s split between the Kent Farm and Wayne Manor, as Lois Lane and Alfred attempt to wake our young heroes to start their respective days.
Elsewhere, Robin and Superboy are chained up, bickering (as usual), and at the mercy of Kid Amazo and his duplicates. After a reasonable amount of required villainous monologuing, the boys rescue Kid Amazo’s unconscious family and escape, with the help of SuperLex (who I guess is going by “Superman” now?). After safely depositing the family away from the action, the boys return to assist Luthor, and the three finally defeat Kid Amazo with the further help of his sister Sara.
The issue, and story arc, ends with Lois and Alfred standing in Superboy’s bedroom, parentally awaiting an explanation of the overnight adventure.
There is not a lot I can say about Peter J. Tomasi’s writing and Jorge Jimenez’s art I haven’t said already. They are both fabulous. I still hate the SuperLex thing. This issue is still worth 4 out of 5 stars, and I look forward the next story arc.
