Good ol' Superman!

Superman is a hottie with a body! This Classic Superman comic starts out the way we all knew it would. With Superman's planet being destroyed, or blown up and the only way to save Superman is to have his parents send him to our lovely planet. . . Earth. Somebody finds him and sends him to a orphanage, but it isn't long until they realize that there is something different about this young man. He has super human strength, and can run and jump faster and higher than anything known to man.
In this comic we find out that Superman's secret identity is Clark Kent and that he works at the news paper as a reporter. He goes around saving peoples lives, bring peace, and bring justice, one day at a time, while still doing his job.
In the comic one day Clark Kent gets the courage to ask Lois on a date. On this date a man named Butch decided that he wants to cut in and have a dance with Lois. Clark lets him and Lois is very upset. She calls him a coward, jumps into a cab and drives home. But on the way Butch followers her, and steals her. But to her surprise Superman is there to save her.
There is a strange contrast between Superman, and Clark Kent. Superman is bold and not afraid of anything. He goes around saving peoples lives and bring justice to the people. He is not afraid to stand up for himself and not afraid to but himself in dangers way. Clark Kent on the other hand is a little "cowered" as Lois explains it. He is scared to stand up for himself, and for those around him.
I found myself laughing out loud while reading this comic. I enjoyed it! I love how straight forward it is and how quick to the point it is. A big difference, and a sigh of relief from Scott McCloud.
