Review

Rating: 7

The trade paperback collecting All-Star Superman issues 1-12 is a stand-alone arc with Superman as a literal sun deity and the story covering his arc including a descent to the underworld before his eventual rebirth. Many Superman stalwarts make their appearance including Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Krypto, Lex Luthor, and Bizarro. But all of that is secondary to the story of Superman dealing with his mortality after being poisoned by too much solar radiation through the machinations of Lex Luthor. The story and the “12 feats” that Superman performs are a look at the enduring presence of Superman as an iconic comic book character.
