The first thing I saw was this cover at a distance, which scared me a bit.  I was thinking "they didn't do a Bluperman Retroactive from the 90s, did they?"  Then I moved in closer and saw it was the Superman from the Batman Beyond-verse, done by the creative team involved with May Parker Spider-Girl (which was some of the best Spidey comics of the past 10-15 years).  Cool!

Overall, it's a good story, worth checking out.  You don't need to be well-versed in Batman Beyond to be entertained -- just think of it as an Elseworlds.  I  loved the little scene with Jimmy Olsen's signal-watch ring-tone, and the ending banter with Batman.  Schway.  Smiley

This title is getting a lot of positive word of mouth.

No matter how many reboots, new origins, reinterpretations or suit redesigns. In the end, he will always be SUPERMAN

Picked it up yesterday.  As much as I'd been looking forward to the issue, I was surprisingly underwhelmed by the story and the artwork.

The big highlight for me was the preview from the new Teen Titans graphic novel, reuniting Wolfman and Perez for a  Teen Titans tale set during their tenure, with all the old characters and settings.  The artwork was gorgeous and the story looked pretty good.

Reminded me of why I got into comics in the first place.

"The bottom line involves choices.  Neither gods nor humans have ever stood calmly in a minefield forever.  Good or evil, they are bound to choose.  And when they do, you will see the truth of all that motivates us.  As a thinking being, you have the obligation to choose.  If the fate of all mankind were in your hands, what would your decision be?  As a writer and an artist, I've drawn my answer."   - Jack Kirby
