After the first arc it doesn't really hit that mark as stated before I agree that this seems like a popcorn flick but atleast it's entertaining not unreadable or something like that. Booth has his good days too and this issue certainly looks better from this preview.
Can't believe I'm actually commenting on this thread but here goes nothing and I'm being literal and not referring to any comic Jesus. Jesus was mortal, you can't pit him against Superman, also Superman himself has said that he wouldn't like to be one to incur the wrath of God.
@maddpanda531: If you're looking to get into an ongoing, Greg Pak has started a run on action that looks very promising. Starting from Action #25, only two issues in and it's already receiving praise from just about everybody :) Also, Happy New Year!
Pretty much every line with Superman from All-Star. Even 'Hmm'. I swear, no other writer has a better voice for Superman than Grant Morrison. Literally nobody comes close to the subtle way that Morrison makes Superman sound different from every other character - strong but humble, tough but compassionate.
One of my favorite Morrison Superman lines comes from JLA. The League is going up against Starro probes that have taken over an entire city, but the Spectre forbids them to intervene. Ol' Specky says that because of their superpowers, they'll be controlled by the probes and then the whole world will be threatened.
Batman is the only man allowed to go in and try and stop Starro - as he has no powers, so the Earth isn't at risk. So Superman tells Spectre to take away all of the League's powers. The Spectre asks him why he would want to do something so suicidal. And Supes replies with this gem:
"Batman isn't going in there alone. That's a good enough reason for me."
