Superman's past collides with his present as thousands of Kryptonians arrive on Earth - but humanity doesn't appreciate these strange new visitors. After a long-lost section of Krypton is miraculously resurrected on Earth, The Man of Steel greets thousands of Kryptonians who suddenly walk among humans.

By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This is the second volume in the New Krypton series, and picks up right where the last one ended.
Kandor(the Bottle City) is finally back to full size, and currently based near the Fortress of Solitude. Supergirl is finally reunited with her parents, and it would seem that the Earth could benefit from thousands of Kryptonians, all with the same powers as Superman. However, all is not well, despite Superman's best efforts to integrate the two civilisations.
Lex Luthor, under instruction from the military, is trying to develop the means to wipe out the Kryptonians, should they ever become a problem. But to do this, he tries to extract information and technology from the captured Braniac. Meanwhile, the Kryptonians are trying to remove all of Supermans most dangerous enemies but whilst doing this, two policeman are murdered, and tensions build rapidly.Matters are made worse when the humans inflict a terrible tragedy on Supergirl. Things come to a head, and the Kryptonians move Kandor to the other side of the Sun, and although this would seem to be the best solution for both races, Supergirl's mother seeks the aid of a well-known, and much-feared character from Krypton's past, who most of you will remember all too well........

This picks up and runs with the ideas established in the first volume in the series. It is tightly editted, and the story and action moves on at a quick pace. The story is quite a moral one, and one that Superman tries to resolve with the best of intentions, but struggles to persuade both sides of the benefits of them living in harmony. It can feel like a metaphor for the world today - how we should all try to live together and get along, but with tensions between races, cultures and religions it seems almost impossible to achieve this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Storyline (cont.) 17 Jan 2011
By David
Format:Paperback
How does Superman stand ground when the entire city of Kandor is back to normal size,
and inhibiting Metropolis? With all its citizens now basking under the same yellow sun,
some Kandorians have taken their powers to the next level, performing grouped hits against Superman's major villians, to pre-emptively take them out of the picture. The Man of Steel does not agree, of course, and things take a turn for the worse when a strong ally unexpectedly dies at the hands of a villain.
This is truly one of the best stories I've read (alongside the equally recent "Last Son").
