Would-be super-villains calling out Kal-El is nothing new around Metropolis. It’s practically a rite of passage. But the city’s latest villain has received quite a Year of the Villain upgrade from Lex Luthor, it appears. It doesn’t take her long to seem to get the upper hand.

The writer means well, but she’s not exactly used to getting to the truth when she’s presented with such fantastic reports, especially when they all seem to suggest the Red Cloud may be too much for the Man of Steel to handle. If he can’t save Metropolis from this new threat, who can? Perhaps our exclusive first look at this pivotal issue may offer some hints…
