please don't remove his eye! please don't do it that will be to cruel! I like superman and don't want him to suffer like that. The rest of the chapter is good. I hope that his friends will save him soon.

Hello...Thank you for informing me of the new chapter...I've read it yesterday and I can say that your style of writing is awesome...The way you portrayed Lex Luthor is really good...You managed to balance between the torture scenes (which isn't that gruesome but still delivered the feelings of a tortured soul) and the interaction between the characters...
When I read this chapter, I was thinking along the lines of strangling Luthor as well as smacking Kal-El for being so reckless...But hey, I suppose it goes to show that sometimes life can be unfair to a select few...
Keep up the good care...

*Shiver* Fantastic, as always. Your attention to detail is incredible, and your medical knowledge makes the vivisection scenes even more horrifying. I don't want to love this story, but I can't help it. Eagerly awaiting the next chapter!

Very intense - and realistic.
Luthor is that diabolical - though, if Superman existed in the real world, I think government forces would be as much a threat to him for the same reasons. As in what makes him tick and how can we harness that to our own ends.
Kryptonite is supposedly very lethal though stories often get away from that. You are sticking to it by showing how devastating it is. If Luthor wants to maximize what he can learn from Superman he will have to lessen the kryptonite exposure. He knows about red solar energy so that is a way to keep Superman powerless w/o constant K exposure. Does he know that, at this point. just keeping Superman out of UV exposure will be enough to make him powerless and vulnerable? Or maybe placing him in cryo suspension between sessions? In the trade paperback Son of Superman, Luthor and the government did that and were able to keep Superman alive for 20 years. They turned him into a virtual endless energy source.
As for eye and brain tissue. Yeah intense, but that is exactly what anyone bent of discovering Superman's physical nature would do. Even if they remove and eye, its possible Kryptonians are advanced enough where they regenerate organs.
Again, intense story but one it's hard not to read. It will be interesting to see where you take it. Superman eventually dies or is permanently damaged. In the latter scenario Clark can live while Superman ceases to be.
One nit, the New 52 costume has put the red briefs under the tights. Wouldn't boxers bunch up - seems like briefs are a more practical form of under-attire.

good but kill luthor now
| Yessiec chapter 12 . 2/1
This chapter really shows how twisted Lex Luthor. I hope that the Justice league can get to Clark before Luthor is able to take a sample of his brain and his eye of better yet the medical team actually refuse to do this any more and if necessary give Luthor the anaesthic instead of Superman.
I am looking forward to more. Please don't kill or permanently disable Vlark.

Oh Luthor is being horrible. I can't wait until he is brought to justice.
| JamesTKent chapter 12 . 1/30
WONderfully done. Pieces are coming together, and are obviously headed for a dramatic conclusion. It's been worth the wait!

Clark/Superman is still not thinking this out. His actions are those of someone not mentally balanced. Maybe the years of having the world on his shoulders have taken their toll on him mentally. That and the children.
In any case he made the worst decision possible and everyone from the JL to Perry sees it. They all worry about what he will do because they know his is mentally off. The typical scenario is that Superman is not the brightest bulb among the JL members. The picture being painted here is more of a mentally ill person.
Transferring his essence leaves Superman at one third power level. Normal, non-kryptonite weapons can kill him now. Ironically the aluminum cuffs specially created by Luthor could have held Superman captive without the kryptonite.
The AI's gave Superman enough power to complete his mission, but his body is essentially dead. Given the torture Luthor will put him through will he die before completing that mission? Really see no way he escapes the captivity alive.
The one way out is that the AI said he could retrieve his essence. It will be Interesting to see how you handle that. When Superman dies at Luthor's hands or while completing his mission will the JL retrieve his body and can they reanimate it using the 2/3 of his essence remiaing at the Fortress? Even if they do so, he will be at 2/3 power lever and vulnerable to mega-weapons and kryptonite. If it gets to that point maybe Perry and the JL will convince Clark to hang up his cape, retire and raise his family.
The torture scenes will be OK as this is a gritty story. The question being will Luthor figure out that Superman is severly de-powered and will he figure out why and take action against the Fortress?

well written chapter. I loved the scene at the beginning where Perry tells Bruce that he knows that he is Batman. His pleas for him to do something to help Clark were wonderful.
My heart breaks for Jason. He has lost both his fathers, and his siblings.
The conversation between Luthor and the agents shows just how ruthless and uncaring he is. I am hoping the agents turn against Luthor to protect Superman, although I can't see that happening.
I also hope that the secretary General sees what a BIG mistake he has made and rescues Superman.
The Justice Leagues conversation regarding Superman was touching, especially Wonder Woman's comments.
I am looking forward to seeing how you progress the story from here.
PS I can just imagine what Batman, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter will do when they get their hands on Lex.

Hello to you, SuperNurse...
Wow...I'm not so sure whether I want to praise Kal-El or just shake my head at his recklessness...But, I suppose, being in postpartum depression condition, he's bound to make some reckless decision, especially in his attempt to protect his children...
Truth be told, I'm not so sure that I can be comfortable with the possible, future torture scenes involving Kal-El. He has lost so much yet Luthor is going to torture him. But, I suppose, such scenes is bound to take place with the way Kal-El and Lex Luthor interact with each other...After all, humans tend to fear the unknown and scientists tend to take apart anything that they don't understand...I believe perhaps the same can be said in regards of any intelligent live forms (be it humans or otherwise)...At least...That's what I think...
Do take care of yourself...Best regards to you and your loved ones...

I would lke to thank the guest who left the superlative review of Chapter 11. At heart, I am not a violent person: I am a healer. But this fiction is taking me to new directions. I would like to thank Superfan2 who directed me to a fiction called Lex Luthor Triumphant by GuapoMendez listed under the Comics section. That fiction gave me chills but I promise despite my direction, there will be a hopeful outcome.
| Guest chapter 11 . 9/29/2013
Agh, account being weird and can't log in to review! This is simply incredible. Love the direction you're taking (even if Clark doesn't!). Wonder what's going to happen when the UN realise that making the collective JLA angry is not the most sensible move, and that vivisecting superman is possibly not the best PR...

and now the truth is known!

I hope you play into the whole Luther being pathetic (which is the opposite of superman) I hate it when the Comics portray him as this "great man" he isn't he is a failure in life who thinks his money makes him matter.
