Awful story, written by someone without a clue
on 1 November 2013
I am a mature graphic novel reader; love all the classics, all star superman, Marvels, Justice, Animal Man by Grant Morrison, Batman Returns, Watchmen, I know my heros and know the essencce of what I want my child to understand of their moral code and cool powers. I bought it for my three and a half year old who loves the idea of superman and spiderman.
He loves the Gruffalo, the cat in the hat; my point being is he can follow relatively long stories, with relatively indepth plots; even if he cant read.
After about five pages in of "clark kent went for a walk with Lois" and "Clark kent took Lois to the fortress of solitude" and man with glasses and suit talks to woman in suit for about five pages. "Clark Kent is a reporter, he works for the Daily Planet"...yawwwwwnnnnnnnn
Oh yeah "Clark kent took Lois to the Fortress of SOlitude...these statues are my parents, they came from the planet Kryton, they died there"...this is Kryptonite, this is the only thing that can hurt me"....
Great Ceasars Ghost!!!
In my gut I know this is just not want children want to see
Its just an awful translation of what / who superman is.
Too much clark and lois.
Shows a Lex Luthor with expression on face like he wants to rip superman's face off, way, way, way too aggressive.
I wanted it to be, "Clark kent works for a newspapaer, Clark kent has a secret, Superman helps people" etc and then goes through all his powers and how he uses them to help people..not some awful translation of Supermans history and most mental villain trying to kill him with a gun!
You could do much better..dont know where, but someone must of got it right!
