But what about Fake Superman's weaknesses? Are they just the opposite of all that? I have to know this random and pointless information.

Did they ever cover how Superman got his real costume? I've only read the first arc of Grant's Action Comics.

He finds the suit in Brainiac's ship. The cape is Jor-El's.

Here's a new Scott Lobdell interview I found on comic book resources forums:

http://www.newsarama.com/18612-lobde...crossover.html

As for Scott's run for me it has it's ups and down(did not like his needlessly convulted Superboy origin instead of keeping the simple clone of Luthor and Superman and maybe adding a few touches of Harvest.

I only have a few favorites for the New 52 Superman comics.

Max Landis pitching his Death and Return of Superman reboot that was canceled. Really long but a great listen imo. Could've been an amazing story.

Love the idea of Superman learning how to fight rather than just punching things hard lol.

It did, I picked it up and read it. Pretty good issue, not spectacular though.

Good to know. Thanks. I was hoping it would stay strong for at least three issues haha. It's starting off very well imo.

IMO, the best thing about it is the variant covers honoring pre-New 52 Superman.

Just got done reading Unchained #3.

Not bad but not amazing. I enjoyed it.
Every issue so far has been an unraveling/tying up loose ends, but with cliffhangers at the end of the issue. It feels like it'll never end haha. So I feel like they kinda have to end that cycle and come up with something new.

Is anybody else sort of preferring the Earth 2 Superman to the standard New 52 one?

Earth 2 Superman is dead, oh and i'm so sick of his story in the main Superman book. Unchained is blowing away action and Superman like they dont even stand there.

Earth 2 Superman is in the current Superman/Batman arc. I tried to read the first issue of Unchained and got bored with it half way through. Just couldn't get into it in anyway. So no thanks, I'll take Action and Superman over it.

Interesting. I really like Unchained.

I guess I really should check out action and the main Superman title. Isn't there Adventures of Superman as well? Which is best..
