Amidst all the gore and anticlimax, no one's commented about Clark having gangreen on the first page.

OK, I've read this issue (and the other Busiek-written issues), but haven't seen much that's objectionable by my standards at all... so far, it's been reasonably entertaining. Only two real objections: being reminded of "One Year Later"/"Infinite Crisis" (given my loathing of IC), and seeing Clark semi-casually swearing ("Dammit"; think he'd only swear when extremely upset, at best).

Re: the supposed gore: I didn't see much objectionable by my standards (vs. the god-awfulness slasher-film levels in "Infinite Crisis"), aside from wondering why the few bits of blood were colored black (vs. red). As for the Luthor-removing-Metallo's-heart bit, I must've seen Metallo's kryptonite-heart ripped out/removed/replaced with fake kryptonite rendering him inactive/etc. about 83 times by now across various comics/Superman:The Animated Series/etc. (going back to his first appearance in the late 50's where it's replaced by fake kryptonite and rendering him inert)...

The monster-attack scenes seemed standard "mortal people running around panicked while nobody apparently gets hurt unless the writer explicitly has someone point it out/say so" comic-book stuff to me. :-)

Not read Action #838 yet, but plan to do so (sorting through the comics bought at Free Comic Book Day yesterday)...
