Remember Superman: Birthright? You should read that instead. The entire time I was reading this issue I kept thinking of Birthright. I thought about Mark Waid's superior writing and Leniel Francis Lu's superior art and just how Waid was able to establish a completely compelling and fresh mythology for Superman....

COMICVINE'S TOP 100 SUPERMAN STORIES #22Really, how many times do we need Superman's origin retold? Superman: Secret Origin gives it to us once again with few improvements and and many 'dis-improvements'. To begin with, I'm a fan of the idea that Superman's powers manifested themselves in late-teens / young adulthood as we've seen in stories like George Francis Lowther's original Adventures of Superman novel from 1942, the original Adventures of Superman radio show, or the 1980s Man of Steel min...2 out of 2 found this review helpful.
