Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence – like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe…and could they just be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?

    Hey, guys! Long time listener to Critical Hit, but when I saw Generations was going to be discussed on Matthew’s Twitter feed, I had to come by and listen.

    I loved this series, and I also have all three series in a separate box from the rest of my collection so I can re-read it when the wild hare hits. I have to say I really liked the second and third series, though. Those two series were really a love letter to Jack Kirby and his contributions to the DC Universe mythology in general and Superman’s mythology in specific.

    Interested in what you guys think of that view of that idea. Thanks for the show.
