This graphic novel is another retelling / re-imaging of Superman’s origin story. From the collapse of Krypton, to the Kent farm in Kansas, from the military, to the depths of the ocean, and becoming a superhero in Metropolis.
A a more naïve, less powerful version of Superman joined with a less moralistic more sarcastic version of Batman is a winning formula.
Superman died defending Earth, but watching closely was Superman from another timeline. This Superman / Clark Kent has married Lois Lane and a father to young Jon Kent (Superboy).
Superman – the granddaddy of all superheroes, the one who started it all, the icon who is held to higher standard in fiction and has set the standards for many of us in the non-fiction world. It’s no wonder why the franchise is almost 80 years strong and growing stronger.
