    And I guess he doesn't want Superman gone because he wants to be the one to defeat the hero.  So yes, I loved this issue and everything about it. I loved it so much I read it a second time before I reached for an unread new comic. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 3, 2021

    With Superman '78 #3 it's clear that this series can be "seen" as an alternate third Christopher Reeve Superman "movie." It's heavy on the nostalgia, but that's what really sells it. It completely embraces the world of the films and lives there with them. The story moves along with all the proper beats including the surprise at the end which, of course fits perfectly with the characters involved. Read Full Review

    The early installments of Superman '78 read like something that could have been plotted for another entry in Donner's own series, but issue #3 blows up the "budget" to 21st century levels and that choice pays dividends. Read Full Review
