A solid outing from the late Mr Cooke, with stylish artwork by Tim Sale that is both reminiscent of- and differentiated from his pencils for Superman for All Seasons.

Ultimately this is a story about vulnerability, and it plays off the fun conceit that we, the readers, already know that Supers is well-nigh invulnerable, but at this early stage in his superheroing career, does he? He naturally has his doubts, even before his first encounter with the kryptonite radiation that plays a big role in how this story unfolds.

Bonus points for Strong Female Characters in the form of Lois Lane and Ma Kent, points deducted for the presence of the Royal Flush gang- what a bunch of maroons!
