    Can anyone give me any info on this book? I've always liked the design of the new Superman but have never read the actual story, just his appearences in JLA.

    I've read that it tells the story of Superman's transformation into the new blue and white Superman, but he only actually becomes the electric Supes at the end of the book and thus doesn't appear much. Is this accurate?

    I'm not sure about the content of this TP, but I was happy to find
    that I'm not the only fan of the SUPERMAN BLUE design (but it's
    probably just the two of us). Too bad they didn't really think it
    through story-wise.


    I liked the design so much that I went ahead and purchased an
    original art page, featuring SUPERMAN in his electric form:

    It's Norm Breyfogle's modern take on the classic SUPERMAN/BATMAN combo.

    It really is a good design for the suit :up:. I don't think that many people would disagree with that. The problem that most readers had with it was that it was Superman who was wearing it and whose powers had changed to suit the look (or vise versa, whatever). I think that that's why Strange Visitor was cool :up:.

    Superman Blue was a cool concept, but got absolutely trashed before it had a chance to take off. I think it's just one of those "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" sort of things.

    Electric Supes was badass in Morrison's "American Dreams" JLA arc, but that's the only one of those stories I've read.

    I'm actually reading the trade paperback now - and it's rubbish. :(

    And Superman Blue only appears at the very end. :(

    I thought it was great

    that's the way it's supposed to be... it just shows the story of his transformation.

    Superman Blue is also in the JLA: Rock of Ages story. I thought that story showed off the new powers pretty well.

    Does anyone know what is official Superman canon and what isn't...it seems like Waid's absolutely horrendous Birthright series canceled out the excellent work Byrne did with the character and now with the emergence of New Earth is there any way to figure out what still is and isn't canon anymore with DC's most Iconic character?

    Stop bashing birthright. After reading the comics from the reboot to now, Mos was basically forgotten after superman had a midlife crisis. Though infinite crisis certainly makes the majority of superman comics in the 90's not in continuity. For instance Lex was never overweight and so all appearences of the fat luthor cant exist and theres all the extra heroes in metropolis. I also heard Matrix was retconned out. I wonder of doomsday is even still in continuity much less electric superman.

    Superman gets caught in a strange solar flare activity. After that he fights an electric monster which touches him then is sent to outer space. He doesn't have to much of his powers after this so he wears the black suit. Sometime later he gets his powers back but he experiments outer problems like going through objects, causing electrical devices to explode and etc. He also goes to Kandor (the bottle city) and releases Ceritak by mistake. After this, he goes becoming electric Superman and then back to normal. He fights another creature and then can't stop becoming electric. He goes to Professor Hamliton and a person from Lexcrop brings in a fabric that will contain Superman in physical form but be more on the electric side. Which dawns the Superman with electric powers. That is where Superman Transformed stops.

    In the comics that follows this story line Cyborg traps Superman and makes two Supermen - one known as Superman Blue and one known as Superman Red. Both are electric which is very cool to see that.
