Have you ever wanted to read the Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, or Green Lantern comics but didn’t know where to start? Well right now is a good time to jump into reading a number of comics, all labelled The New 52, which are part of a large reset DC Comics did of its superhero comics (basically this means they all started over again at issue 1).
Superman and the Men of Steel is part of that reset, and Superman is going back to his roots. The invincible Superman of recent years is back to being a man who can be hurt when hit by a bullet train. He bounces back from being shocked in an electric chair, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. Without disregarding everything that came before, Grant Morrison and Rags Morales have taken the Man of Steel and started retelling his story for a new generation.
In this graphic novel, Superman has to save Earth from the beings who destroyed his home planet of Krypton. Lois Lane is doing her best to get the story, Lex Luthor is looking out for himself, and Superman is viewed with suspicion by the masses as a mysterious alien of unknown origins.
