As someone who over the years has amassed a pretty sizable collection of graphic novels, I when into this expect another run of the mill, kid becomes a hero, wish fulfillment story. Boy was I wrong!
What I got instead was a heartfelt, poignant and genuinely tear jerking story about overcoming adversity. How a disability or illness doesn't define who we are and how we more often than not take the little things in life for granted.
To top it all off, this story stands as a love letter to everything great about superheroes that don't rely on the dark and brooding angle; About being good for the sake of good, and fighting injustice because its right instead of vengeance.
This isn't just one of the best superhero stories I've ever read, its one of the best Superman stories there is.
From a jaded comic book fans perspective, this comes highly recommended. 5/5 Top Marks.

Read in one sitting, as I couldn't put it down.
A boy with MS is offered the opportunity to become the superhero that he so admires from the cinema. Of course, there's a catch that he doesn't know about until it is too late.
Mark Miller does know how to put a new spin on an old theme and combined with the artwork from Yu this is a story worth buying.

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 a story about serious disease (sclerosis) and also about the temptations, we're faced with, the choices that we make and their consequences.

The hardcover is beautiful, masterfully put together. Just a great book!

There's maybe one chapter in the middle, that I felt was a bit to slow and made me put the book down and read it in two sittings instead of one, but now I know, that it was worth to finish it.

It's in the title. One of the best ever. If u loved Christopher reeve's and Richard Donner's original superman, it kinda makes you feel when you 1st saw that as a kid. TOP!

Buy this comic.
This is a great comic because it's the greatest homage to Superman and super-heroes in general.
5 star because it is so enjoyable to read this...

Highly recommended.

Another hit by awesome writer Mark Millar, this shows what Superman could've been doing instead of waiting for a catastrophe every other day. Not only that, but add in a talking monkey and an epic city-scale final fight, and you may be holding the next box office hit! Anyone who loves Superman will definitely love this!
