Hello all, it’s time for another special review from your friendly neighborhood Silverwolf! Today I’ll be discussing Superman #1, the final #1 of the New 52 I’ll be looking at!
Superman is without a doubt the most famous comic book icon of all time; even people who have never heard of DC Comics can probably identify the meaning of the famous red S that adorns his chest, and will pick him when asked to name a superhero. Since the 30s, the Man of Steel has punched giant robots, fallen in love, died, resurrected, gone to alternate dimensions, saved lives, rebuilt entire planets…the list goes on. Superman truly is the ideal human: he has physical perfection, genius intellect, and an unwavering moral code. Some people find him dull for this reason, saying that he is too “vanilla”; I, on the other hand, think Superman is one of the most interesting characters ever created. With that in mind, I snatched up the DC revamp of this classic character this past week. But, do the Last Son of Kypton’s newest exploits live up to the grandeur of his classic conquests?
