DC One Million #4:
The battle is on! In the future, all the superheroes take on Solaris! Thousands perish, worlds shake!
The JLA has finally been reunited in the future, but Solaris has the final weapon to kill Superman - a Kryptonite fragment, aimed like a missile at the heart of the sun! Green Lantern tries to contain Solaris, but the fragment shoots past his force field.
Superman runs after it, but it's too late to stop it... or is it?
First of all, I just love Martian Manhunter's words here to Resurrection Man, comforting him his final moments that not all is over yet. It's enough to drive me to tears.
My jaw dropped and I squealed in delight! I love the shift in tone. One moment we're mourning Resurrection Man; the other the good guys are winning with panache. What an emotional roller coaster.
And then the hard-earned happy ending:
Hourman manipulates time and they bring Krypton back to life, including Superman's parents.
And Kyle is so right below:
Ah, that wink! Praise All-Star Superman all you want; this for me is the greatest Superman tale ever told!
