Superman has just never had the same appeal to my nephew as Batman or Spiderman. He knows *much* less about Superman than either of these other two heroes, and as a result, he's less interested in stories that involve Superman. He and I did enjoy this book, but he was not as wild for this one as for any of his books featuring Batman or Spiderman. The illustrations are good, and the story was fine, but I don't think this is going to rank among my nephew's favorite superhero books. Superman just isn't as cool as Spiderman, or as intriguing as Batman.
