Damn, that was amazing. I love how Snyder is not only taking continuity from his own story but also from Morrison's Batman and Multiversity as well as Geoff John's Justice League among others. Everything that I though would be ridiculous actually paid off and is now really cool. If I wasn't sold on this before, I am now.

Very good start to this story line. I love seeing Superman being a hero and inspiring. The big reveal will upset a lot of people, but I think this could be really cool. I will wait and see how this is explained because this possibly could be a red herring still.
