The only people who don't like this book are Superman fans who can't take the idea that Wonder Woman could beat him in a fight. Its a very juvenile reason to not like a book, when the story itself is actually compelling exciting and a thrill ride. it's a complete joy to read. Don't listen to the properganda.

Format: Paperback
The stories that run through issues #640, #641 and #644-647 of the Adventures of Superman, are collected as Superman - Ruin Revealed. They bring to a close a number of long running storylines, as we approach the Infinite Crisis event horizon, and are actually interwoven with some of the lead-in stories for that event, as Superman pops off in-between some of the issues here to do stuff. They are very interesting stories, with excellent scripting and art.

Superman 640: "The Road to Ruin" - This story is cleverly told in split screen, with a strip of panels along the bottom of the page showing the `civilian' stories, Clark and Lana, Clark and Pete Ross, Clark and Jimmy, Jimmy and Jerry, Lois and Jimmy; while along the top 2/3 of the page is the `big' story, told in scrapbook pictures, TV monitors, newsfeeds and Daily Planet photos & headlines, as Superman and Ruin fight it out in the wreckage of the Steelworks, building up to the Daily Planet front page by Lois and Jimmy, as Superman rips the mask off the defeated Ruin to reveal...

Superman 641: "Innocence" - This opens in Stryker's Island prison, where Lieutenant Lupe Leocadio of the Metropolis SCU is visiting Pete Ross in his cell. Outside, Clark Kent is slowly working his way through the obstructive bureaucracy to reach the same cell, where Lupe is beating Pete to a pulp. He is able to strong-arm his way in with the power of the press. Pete maintains that he was framed, and reveals that Luthor told him Clark's secret (in a previous issue). This convinces Clark that Pete is telling the truth... meanwhile, Professor Hamilton is examining Ruin's costume in another part of the prison, when it starts sparking, and there is a power outage. The prisoners make a break form it, including the two Parasites created by Ruin.

The Infinite Crisis is causing chaos in the DC Universe as the OMAC Cyborgs are attacking, the villains are uniting, magic is dying and a space battle is happening and Superman is in the chaos and a lot of crazy things happening. I love this tie-in to the Infinite Crisis. It collects 217, 221-225 and the issues consists of:

217: Superman battles an OMAC Cyborg in the South American Rainforest where his fortress of solitude is made after the events of Superman: For Tomorrow.
221: Bizzaro, a crazy version of Superman battles an OMAC Cyborg and agrees to join the Secret Society of Supervillains created by Lex Luthor.
Pages from Action Comics #831 showing Bizarro and Zoom racing and Bizarro agress to join the Society.
222: An OMAC Cyborg attacks Lois Lane but she get's saved by a Superman robot who was one that saved her when Weather Wizard attacked.
223: A New Blackrock by the name of Lucia battles Superman while Superman's cousin, Supergirl gets ready to join Donna Troy's team in Space.
224: The Real Lex Luthor is searching for the other version of him who is actually Alexander Luthor Jr from Earth-Three after the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths and has decided to create a perfect Earth in the DC Universe.
225: Superman battles, Heatwave, Plasmus, Scorch and Effigy, who were sent by the Society to battle Superman.

I Highly recommend this to Superman fans who have read the Infinite Crisis.

Superman has been brainwashed and imagines a series of fights between him and various long standing villains.
Afterwards the JLA show up and accuse him of misdeeds. There is literally blood on his hands which he initially refuses to examine with his special vision out of fear of what he'll discover. Eventually they show the video of him trying to kill a JLA member and jonn jones tells him he cant reverse the mind control. After going insane again superman and wonder woman fight each other ,hard. After several rounds It becomes clear that diana is losing the fight inch by inch ,the amazon comes up with a radical and murderous solution.

This is another lead in to the omac project and the infinite crisis
but this one is great, action mayhem and ultra violence.
superman gone off the reservation and wonder woman pressed into an impossible decision.
An essential pre crisis purchase
