Superman meets the new Wonder Woman for the first time! But why can't he shake the feeling that he already knows her? The Man of Steel will have to figure that out later, as the two heroes have their hands full defending Omaha, Nebraska from the evil Keres, a supernatural force determined to rid the town (and the world!) of all Amazons and they're not too crazy about Kryptonians, either.

    Eddy Barrows continues to shine whenever he is able to be on the book. So I hope .... HOPE ... that 'Grounded' continues from here. I hope the momentum continues. Read Full Review

    Once "Grounded" is over, at this point I'd be happy to see a Roberson and Barrows creative team be announced as permanent once Straczynski's plotting has ended. Roberson is showing good instincts on how to use the pre-determined plots to his advantage, and his work on books like "iZombie" has also been entertaining. Until then, though, I've got much more confidence in the book getting a chance to build toward a strong conclusion. And that's good enough for now. Read Full Review

    Still, this story has run its course, IMO, and much like WONK, it needs to end sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    Still, there are things that still need to be clarified. Knowing that someone is responsible for Supermans current state of mind doesnt make it more fun to read about, and as we are going into the second half of this storyline, hopefully Roberson will be able to steer it to a satisfying resolution.

    IGN - Feb 9, 2011

    Here's hoping that DC cuts their losses and moves away from JMS' poorly-concocted storyline, forgetting it ever happened. It was an interesting idea that failed to achieve what it set out to do, and it's unfair to have the blame be shifted to Roberson. The man's doing the best he can with the material, but Superman #708 proves that there probably wasn't much to work with in the first place. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - SoldierHawk Feb 12, 2011

    Its not that this issue is badly written or scripted (although I really, really could have done without the super clunky exposition and ridiculous techno babble.) Its just that this arc (still) seems to be going nowhere, and is beginning to head 180 degrees from the objective it seemed to set out for itself at the beginning. Confusing sums it up best, really.
