Indeed it does. I love the small things, like the box having the same colors as Superman's costume.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

This is a great issue.  So far the best Superman comic out on the market.

Okay!  Now time for some SPOILERS...

Surprisingly, despite the cover and the solicitation, Lois Lane, Superwoman doesn't really use her powers all that much.  (really it's mostly about Lois and Superman dealing with overconfident strongmen Samson and Atlas) But it's still a lot of fun nonetheless.

The two other Daily Planet staffers with speaking roles from #1 are confirmed as Steve Lombard (well, actually, it was confirmed in the WIZARD article but they wrote the wrong last name down) and Cat Grant.

Sure enough, it's not the old Signal Watch--Jimmy's Super-Watch has a sleeker look to it.

Upcoming stories hinted:  As Samson says, Superman "completed 12 Super Challenges, the Stuff of Legend", some of which include creating life, escaping from the "Underverse", and overthrowing the Tyrant Sun (obviously a reference to Solaris the Tyrant Sun of DC 1 MILLION).

The two-page arm-wrestling sequence is my favorite of the entire issue, with the four pages afterward coming in close.  I think what helps make this book work is that Frank Quitely's art brings a quiet subtlety to the story; something that you hardly see in superhero comics.

So, Samson's paper had "SUPERMAN DEAD" on the front page.... but it's written by Clark Kent.  I wonder if it means that the Morrison/Quitely run is a finite story, allowing other writers and artists to work on their own thing, or it's open-ended, with Superman able to be brought back at any time.

Yes, that's definitely one super-kiss that would normally leave Lois breathless.   :wink:

And did you like the little in-joke when the time-travelling Samson invited Lois to dinner -- on Triceratops Bourgignon?   :wink:
