    Like Superman #226, we get lots of great work from the industrys best talents. Im sorry theres only one page of Doug Mahnke, and Dan Jurgens needs a different inker. But this comic is both a tribute and a criticism of the modern incarnation of Superman. Which is appropriate, if you think about it. Superman is basically a simple character. He believes in simple truths. But real life is rarely that simple. Various writers have tried to address that in Superman stories for the last 20 years. The results have been confusing or worse; leaving our hero powerless and uncertain. This issue demonstrates the practical pros and cons of Superman acting like all problems have simple answers.
