in my previous post, we saw how Clark and Lois meet. I think we can all agree that it was a sweet moment but not everything in the book is quite so happy. you see, the government has been investigating the strange occurrences where Clark saved people's lives and want to get to the bottom of things. they have no idea who he is and are more than a little paranoid so they decide to set a trap.

Clark just rescued a capsized boat. he doesn't realize it's all a setup to catch him.

while kept under heavy sedation, he has comic hallucinations. he imagines scenes with Superman captured by Lex Luthor and Brainiac. he eventually breaks free and is rather pissed off at what he finds.

he's not the first superhuman they've encountered but so far, he's the strongest of them. he understandably goes apeshit and levels the facility.

after that ordeal, he becomes paranoid and shut off. his relationship with Lois takes a hit since he won't tell her what's bothering him. eventually, he works up the nerve to talk to her.

they fly around a bit and then:

that's a grand total of 15 out of 48 pages. my next post will cover issue #3 which takes place some years later where Clark and Lois are already married.

...Great Gog. THAT is where S-Bitch Prime should have eventually gone?

Just makes me feel even worse. Imagine this guy against the Black Lanterns.

I think that's where he's was supposed to have come from, not where he ended up.

It's based on the original concept, not the actual character.

I'm not sure why we can't have both versions.

I just really love this book.

Stuart Immonen's art is always fantastic but I wish he would do some one shots in this style.

I totally read "on top of the Cloisters" as "on top of the Cloisers."

And, yeah, I'm pretty going to have to buy this, aren't I? You've broken me down, OP.

You might have some trouble tracking it down, since it's out of print. You might have some luck with Ebay though.

My question is, how do his powers compare to Prime? Is he as ubur as prime?

Because I so want this man to enter the mainstream multiverse...

He's actually probably weaker than the Byrne Superman and the Dini/TImmverse animated Superman.

From: [personal profile] mr_austin
He's not solar-powered (to his knowledge) and there isn't even the tiniest mention of where he actually comes from or why he has Superman's powers, so he's almost certainly on the weaker end of Supermen, if not the outright weakest.

That said his character is whole and rich and I wouldn't want to spoil him by subjecting him to the action figure insanity that is the mainstream DCU.

Yeah, there's a part where she mentions her parents being more weirded out by her marrying someone named Clark Kent than by him not being Indian.

It's the eyes. And the nose. And the hair. Actually, the eye-roll, when she first meets him, is just... the best...
(And, I've always wondered if Immonen used a models for SI. He says no, but she seems very real... I can dream...)

I don't usually like Superman stories, but I love how this humanizes him. Also, the rooftop picnic reminds me of another Superman story where he does the same thing with Lois and she's like, "this might have been romantic in High School but not now!" It might have been the animated show...

The "float off the roof" scene was totally lifted for Superman Returns, wasn't it?

I think there was an episode of JLU where Superman takes Lois on a picnic. She comments that his high school sweetheart must have loved that sort of thing, which he comfirms It was cute, but it doesn't make up for the fact that she still didn't know he was Clark Kent. (Sorry, pet peeve of mine about the DCAU.)

I love anything where the superguy just TELLS his loved ones he's a superguy. Secret identities have gotten more and more annoying as a plot device. And stories where the family and close friends are in on the secret are WAY more interesting anyway.

The only other series that did so that I can think of is Blue Beetle. I'm sure there must have been others, but I can't think of any.

Yeah, no wonder Clark flipped out and smashed the place. How can anyone justify killing a baby? Let alone a baby and eleven other people of unknown ages.

How did they know the baby had powers, anyway?
