As if in response to the ongoing complaints that Superman, as a character, is irrelevant to modern audiences, The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths event just upped its game and gave us four different versions. Supergirl's Earth-38 Superman and Lois encounter several across the multiverse, which provides epilogues for three former franchises.

Things did not work out quite so well for the other young Superman from Superboy, who died at the hands of Lex Luthor.

Matt Kindt must sit in his office and wonder, “What’s the last thing that readers would expect to happen at the end of this issue? I’ll do that.” And, he does. And, it is. It never feels inorganic; it never feels like a cheat.
