From the the end of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's Legion of Super-Heroes story, Action Comics #863. Regardless of my criticism of his writing, it's scenes like this, of convincing humanity and warmth, that make certain I always have time for him. It also follows Grant Morrison's insight that Superman's story is in a way, everyone's internal story. And the Legion are "the Friends That Understood You When Others Didn't." It's not that easy to wrote moments like this that are sentimental, but genuinely so. This scene might not so so much tell you about Clark, and his friends and his childhood, but about you. And yours. And what we miss when we grow older.
