The book’s last page shows the New 52 Lois Lane’s glorifying article of the New 52 Superman. A fitting end and redemption for the woman who outed the New 52 Superman as Clark Kent.

This arc has been the best New 52 Superman story in any Superman family title. Its has the emotion, drama, action, suspense and more.

Peter J. Tomasi also writing the bi-weekly Superman series in DC Rebirth should be a must read. He clearly “gets” Superman.
