Okay. The Superman Squad. (Both in this time and in the future) is the coolest thing in this TPB and that's saying something because it seemed like every time I turned a page there was something great that came next.

There was the woman and this unknown force that seemed to be trying to destry him. Flash/Superman stuff, Batman (Bruce not Dick)/Superman stuff. There was even some Livewire stuff that was great (and I usually have found her story lines tedious and annoying).

The entire volume and the previous volume as well seems to be a way to clear up and resolve a lot of the parts of the Superman stories that had been sort of left hanging either before the New Krypton story or after it. ( )

A fairly interesting storyline in which Superman is beset by self-doubt after the destruction of New Krypton and the death of Pa Kent. For a time this is magnified in him and spread to another human by a Kryptonian artifact. The first story, in which Superman uncharacteristically orders Lois to kill a story exposing a company's pollution because it would shut down the company and destroy the town's economy, was a bit of a shocker. Later it became apparent that the Kryptonian sunstone was partly to blame. An interesting story that explores some of the ideas behind Superman's self-doubt, and they are too rarely debated in a series about a nearly all-powerful being. But I've seen it done better. ( )
