> For me there was entirely too much of the original Superman movie style Clark Kent. Acting clumsy....seemed to be disliked by most of his coworkers...etc. Now maybe it was done to show the huge difference between Clark and Superman but I don't know. It was just constantly making me think of the movie.

> The art was ok. I really liked Frank's work on the Squadron and Hyperion and am hoping for great stuff here. The only thing I didn't really like is that he does not draw Superman as being all that big of a guy. I know he said in numerous interviews that he wasn't going to because he didn't see the need but it's been established in the DCU that Kal IS a big guy and has pretty much always been shown that way. The change here is somewhat disappointing, to me at least. The rest of the art was good though.

The only problem I had was the Legions costumes. It was so good to see the classic looks of the characters in the JLA/JSA issues, and now once again they are trying to re-invent the wheel. I've seen enough alternate versions of the Legion to last a lifetime. Can't we have the classics back for even one story arc? Dawnstar's classic costume IMO is one of the coolest looks in comics. I wish they'd justleave it alone.


> All in all a good issue with just a couple of nits to me. Not great but good. There was a really cool twist when Superman gets to the future that generated a big WHOA factor.

But Dawnstar's new costume is hot. I feel the sameway though, the thing that excited most about this story was the return of the classic Legion.

Still I'm not dissapointed at all, I loved the story.
