Gotta love Morrison--he took something that should be old-hat and boring and make it so operatic. :D

I'm also liking what he's doing with Brainiac--he seems to be combining the Kryptonian AI from S:TAS and the Coluan collector stuff with the Collector of Worlds, and I see the two being melded at some point.

I haven't read the scans to avoid spoilery, but I must say that cover looks glorious. The wings remind me of that thingamajig in Superman: The Animated Series when Clark found out about his parents.

That last page is just a little too reminiscent of Starro, imo.

Maybe Im reading too much into it but...

"As the seed of Krypton grew and bloomed. And so began the age of Superhumans."

...It sounds to me as if they want to develop a link between Superman and everyone else. Which. No. Not again.

Morrison's ideas would be totally far out and crazy and exciting if he'd stop reusing the same ones.

Really thought I'd be bored by the Superman origin by now, but damn, that whole opening sequence is awe-inspiring. The failed Phantom Zone escape, the explanation of the rocket being a miniature prototype... Everything binds together so damn well.

Even though Superman's origin has been re-done a zillion of times, I actually loved the way it has been handled by Morrison and Andy Kubert's art is always a delight for the eyes.

I know it wasn't intentional but I can't stop thinking that Lara looks a lot like Ardora Luthor from the Pre-Crisis planet of Lexor. If it was intentional then kudos to Morrison and Kubert for remembering such an obscure character.
