4.0 out of 5 stars Millar's own Superman
The book is so good, I don't know where to start. For one, it's Mark Millar's homage to Superman, and a very smart one at that - there are references to comic books, movies and the whole super-phenomenon. It's also - like The Ultimates - a story for the new century, current and relevant to today's readers, not a repetition of old themes.

At the same time, it's...

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Mark Millar, excellent idea badly realised
I'm gonna assume this will be made into a movie and the movie may be great but there is some obvious bad writing
There's one thing at the end that is a huge plothole that kinda ruined the story for me and i had to take off a star.
It had potential

Different and intriguing! I enjoyed it and it acts as an alternative to Superman and the more traditional super heros.

2.0 out of 5 stars Millar continues to be bland., 9 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Superior (graphic novel): 1 (Hardcover)
Its Mark Millar's homage to Superman and boy is it uninspiring. Its the same tired old formula yet again, he takes an idea and strings it out for a bit and the whole thing concludes with a huge fight. Hardly visionary. Is it fun? Only slightly. If only Millar could actually write some decent dialogue, chance would be a fine thing. To be honest it has the feeling that it has been written by a teenager, it tries so hard to be smart, funny and witty at times but comes across as purile.

So a young boy with a disability is given Superman-like powers by a sinister looking creature (space monkey) only there will be a catch. But don't fret as we all know its not going to be for free. Simple enough so far. The majority of the story is built around the Superior character having fun with his new powers however only a couple of people know his real identity. Most of this back story is of little to no consequence in the end because it all boils down to a large hollywood-esque battle (I'm sure Millar can smell the dollars at this point). All in all Superior features everything you would expect from a Mark Millar book - poor dialogue, characters who are instantly forgettable, a lead female character who is 1 dimensional and to top it off all plot devices are resolved in the huge money shot of a battle to wrap it all up (the space monkey finds another kid who happens to hate the lead character so hey presto, fight!). On paper it sounds interesting enough but in the end it isn't. Hopefully he may write something original in the future. Its an expensive sleeping tablet because its just so pedestrian and by the numbers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull..., 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Superior (Paperback)
I found this Book to be dull and lacked imagination, I was very let down as I was expecting more from this book and my personal feeling is this book lacked any real punch and it is just a tad lacklustre.
