Format: Hardcover
The 22-page story "Balance of Power" from the comic book Superman Adventures #5 is reprinted in this volume. This is an excellent adventure story for younger readers who are interested in the exploits of Superman and his supporting cast. The style of the artwork is heavily influenced by the animated TV / DVD series of DC Comics' superheroes, and so is likely to be familiar to readers. The story is well-written with a clear storyline, characterisation, and well-described action and problem solving situations. As well as the comic story, there is a supporting page of writer & artist biographies, a general and a Superman-specific glossary, and two pages of Visual Questions and Prompts.

THE SPOILER ZONE
"Balance of Power" sees Livewire powered up and out to give women pride of place in the media by blanking out male newsreaders and journalists, leaving only females visible to the public. Superman and Luthor have to team up to recapture her, but Luthor, naturally, can't be trusted...

FURTHER READING
The `original' Superman comic books are reprinted in both colour and black-and white (and suitable for home colouring-in). They are no less suitable for younger readers than these more modern stories aimed at the same age group as the originals were.
