Review of chapter "4. Cool Thing" from VillageOrchid
Review:
While I like the idea of the post-series stuff with Dawn and the X-Council, I thought the version of Superman that you're using for this story was horrible, like they spent 1 week on the script and story. I do like that you picked a version of Superman where Lois isn't likeable and not necessarily his true love.
Comments from author:
When I started writing it, SR had been the only Superman I had really watched & remembered the best (I think I wrote the first chapter right after I got home from the theater, actually.) I'd seen bits & pieces of the cartoons, the Reeves movies, a handful of the Dean Cain's tv version when I was younger & only a few Smallville eps.
I agree it's definately not the best - Lois & Clark both lacked the pizazz that Reeves & Kidder had in spades, and the whole baby-drama was a bit obvious (although I did scratch my head trying to think 'when the hell did he have the time to get her pregnant?' - I apparently thought Superman didn't do normal things like have sex).
I started writing it with how it was supposed to end clearly in my head - Lois+Clark=Obvious. Now, I'm not so sure. And the writing is starting to reflect that.

Review of chapter "4. Cool Thing" from TaraLi
Review:
"Superman never made any money
Saving the world from Solomon Grundy..."

I've always loved that song, as it captures something essential about his character. It feels like you're capturing something of that same bit, although from a different perspective. Please, keep up the good work!

Review of chapter "4. Cool Thing" from cloudleonsgurl
Review:
This is so heart wrenching. I read the summary, but I hope Supes and Dawn will end up together despite everything. Very good job.

Review of chapter "Don't Forget to Remember Me" from PrincessTai
Review:
Oh wow.
Boy Scout leaves behind TWO kids and two women.
I never saw what was the big thing about Superman. He's annoying and a hypocrite.
The only incarnation of him I liked was the Dean Cain one. And sometimes the Christopher Reeves one, that was mostly cause that version of Lois rocked.

Review of chapter "3. Beautiful Disaster" from AnnOfMidnight
Review:
Well, this is certainly better than the movie. Adds some depth to the characters... I wonder what Damn's kid is going to be like. It makes no sense that Lois' is so weak, exept for when he's mad or whatever. I'd love to see where you're going with this. I'm hoping Clark can't just decide not to be Dawn's child's father because she already knows about him.

ANyway, thanks for this. Looking forward to more.

Review of chapter "3. Beautiful Disaster" from KingHenrytheV
Review:
This reads as an interesting story that I'd like to see more of. I won't comment on the pace or chapter size, since I'm not so good at that myself. I look forward to seeing how the story develops, and how Superman and his Ex interact after his Return.

The story is already shaping up to be better than "Superman Returns."
