From the hit comic series BATMAN BEYOND comes the adventures of The Man of Tomorrow in the DC Universe of the future. As Superman feels his super-powers beginning to decline, The Last Son of Krypton is called back into action to stop a villain more powerful than any he's faced before. This looks like a job for Superman Beyond!

    This version of the character originated in the Batman Beyond animated series, and made his comics debut in last years excellent Superman/Batman Annual #4. Its an alluring take on an icon that is often depicted as the pillar of vitality and strength. This one-shot seems like an effort from DC to bring the big boy back to help strengthen the line, along with the Justice League roster. Read Full Review

    It's so hard not to compare this book to Spider-Girl" the same creative team, the hero-of-the-future motif" even Armorgeddon feels like a villain Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz may have put on the shelf after that series ended and dusted off for this one. In fact, it feels like a Spider-Girl story in many ways, most of them good. Fortunately, it also feels like a Superman story. The character here comes across as a man struggling to prove his continued relevance, even to himself, which makes a good angle to take with Superman in the world of Batman Beyond. Read Full Review

    If you've been wanting more comics from the Batman Beyond world, here it is. Superman comes out of retirement and there are plenty of guest stars here to welcome him back. The choice of a villain for Superman isn't overly spectacular but he provides a good foil for the Man of Steel and helps set things up for his permanent return. The fact that the creative team is the same from the MC2 Spider-Girl series is a nice touch as those gentlemen have plenty of experience in writing future stories. I wasn't completely blown away with this issue but I did have fun reading it and that is what matters when reading a comic. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Aug 27, 2011

    I really enjoyed this look into the life of Superman of the future. His previous appearances have been more of the supporting role than central character. This issue has everything one expects in a Superman story, and it works well. I don't know if it is worth the $3.99 cover price, trimming a few pages of the fight scene would have been okay by me, but Superman Beyond #0 is certainly worth checking out. While we don't know what is going to happen a month from now, I hope we get to see more adventures of Superman Beyond in the near future. I'm giving Superman Beyond #0 3.5 out of 5 Stars.

    So, if you've a few quid to spare and have some lid-time, Superman Beyond is a solid read, and better than much of what is out there, for Superman and beyond. Trouble is, that's not saying nearly enough. Read Full Review

    The bottom line is that if this story was an animated cartoon on TV, I'd probably enjoy it a lot more. Whereas I might watch and re-watch an episode of Batman Beyond until it grows on me because my choices are that and an episode of Digimon, it's much easier for me to just spend my money on another comic book.
