"A Superman for a new generation. J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis managed to breathe a new perspective into the character, full of all the classicism the character demands, but full of all the modernity required to make it fresh for a brand new audience."--THE HUFFINGTON POST
"Draws upon the Superman mythology but recreates it for a contemporary audience with a 20-year-old Clark Kent who's unsure how to use his super-strength, super-smarts and just plain super abilities as he makes his way through a grittier, more realistic Metropolis trying to find not just a job but meaning and purpose."--ASSOCIATED PRESS
"What do you get when you combine Twilight and a classic superhero? The new Superman."--THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
