Wow! I love the greatness of Alter Ego. Thanks again.

I haven't read it but if you do a search for Krypton in that search engine, you can get to read a few pages!

I have a copy, I thought it was pretty good.  Very well researched and true to the character.  All the scholars refer to the pre-crisis continuity and powers, etc; which I found pleasantly refreshing.
