Review
The "New 52," DC's universe-wide continuity reboot, has drawn major attention and sales, and one pillar of it is naturally the revamp of the company's most iconic character. Here, Morrison, writer of the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning All-Star Superman , returns Superman to his 1938 roots. This man of steel is still a street-level crusader against corruption and injustice, righteous and determined but inexperienced and with powers still developing. He's also wanted by the government, which has enlisted scientific genius Lux Luthor to capture him. Ultimately, the down-to-earth hero is thrust into cosmic matters, when the Collector of Worlds, which preserves elements of planetary cultures doomed to extinction, comes for Metropolis. VERDICT Morrison brings big ideas to the table, and his protrait of the hero as a young man will prove more appealing to some readers than the mature, nearly omnipotent Superman of recent decades. Supporting characters, including Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and Steel, are less changed. The artwork by Rags Morales, Andy Kubert, and others consistently reaches a high standard. A strong book for all DC fans.— S.R. --Steve Raiteri (Reviewed November 15, 2012) (Library Journal, vol 137, issue 19, p66)
