While it was good, it wasn't particularly entertaining.

I expected more from Lex Luthor (action, maybe?). However, I greatly enjoyed his ''pure views'' against Superman and I think them fitting. I guess one can't help siding with him (I know I can't!).

If you're a big comics fan (and villains' too!), I suggest you check it out the library like I did and read it just so you know what it's about. But buying it? I'm not too sure.

Brian Azzarello usually impresses me (like with ''The Joker''!), but this one didn't hit the bull's eye.

It wasn't bad; it was fun but not that much. So, two stars for this one. ( )

Ana amazing, humanizing, sympathetic look at Superman's antagonist. A prime example of the old adages "History is written by the victors" and "Everyman is the hero of his own story". ( )

I was really looking forward to this story...Lex Luthor as the good guy and Superman as the bad guy...Extremely disappointing! ( )

An interesting, if somewhat cold, character study of the classic Superman villian. This is a very dark take on the DC universe that gives Luthor a more real-world villainy. ( )

A brilliantly intricate plan for Luthor to smear Superman. Probably not as good if you're just looking for slugfests. ( )
