Man of Steel #1

July 2, 2010

Summary at DC Wikia: Man of Steel #1

Murky Memories: It was 1986, and the Crisis on Infinite Earths had just changed the DC Universe. Where Marvel, at the time, had more grounded and believable characters, DC was the home to a Superman who had super freeze breath, super ventriloquism, could push planets, etc., . Until Man of Steel
#1 came.

Man of Steel was a reboot… with a more simple, less powerful, Superman. The origin story changed considerably, Superman’s abilities differed, the roles and nature of the supporting cast changed as well. And it was for the better.

As much as I dislike reboots, this one helped the character and accomplished its goal. Well done, DC.
