"Odd and silly" how? Morrison's work unusually involves grandiose ideas that at times can be a bit difficult to follow. He does take you on a roller coaster ride with his work and it can feel a bit overwhelming at times. I will say that the second half of his work has been a little erratic at times and not on par with the opening arc, but the last couple of issues have been back on track. It will be interesting to see what he does with Doomsday...or in the 52'Verse case...Super Doom!!!!
"Odd and silly" hard to explain... Just the "tone" of the things he does. It's maybe not best exampled in this latest issue but he has a tendency to get just... "odd." See: A lot of what happens in All-Star Superman which is VASTLY overrated. An entire issue of which spent with Jimmy Olson bumbling around in a technicolor dreamcoat with near limitless assess to alien/advanced technology.
