5.0 out of 5 stars This is Superman!, 11 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Superman Secret Origin (Superman (DC Comics)) (Paperback)
Not so much a 'secret' origin but more of a Geoff Johns telling of Superman. I really enjoyed this, it was modern without it being shoved down your throat and still managed to have the Superman that we all know without revamping the character, Lois Lane blends so well with the story as well as Jimmy Olsen and maintain to be as we all remember, without steering away from the action scenes which are amazing with a Parasite origin worked in and being a sort of low level antagonist for Supes, used as a weapon by Luthor. And a new spin on the other antagonist Metallo as a soldier under General Lane both again are weapons used by Luthor.

Geoff Johns' Lex Luthor is near enough the same age as Clark Kent and grew up in Smallville to a poor family and an abusive father, he's made his own fortune and now rules Metropolis. To me this is how Luthor should be portrayed, evil, jealous, powerful and a force to be reckoned with.

I would say for Superman fans and people getting into Supes that this is essential reading, Geoff Johns and Gary Franks Superman is the quintessential Man of Steel and this is the beginning, I would also suggest that the graphic novel 'Superman: last son' as great take too. Gary Franks artwork is amazing and bases the likeness of Superman on Christopher Reeve which is perfect, I recommend this highly to any fans or anyone looking to start as this is a great jumping off point.
