LR: In my single-digit years I’d sit on the floor by the supermarket magazine rack reading comics. I felt that Superman and Superboy were more “real” and “normal” than the Marvel Comics heroes. The Superman movies I’ve found pretty average, but liked the Lois character, except for the sanctimonious Lois in the latest movie. The novel uses the basic knowledge any American might have of our primary superhero.
