Review of chapter "Epilogue" from lunalurker
And on a sudden whim, here I am again, rereading this years later. And it is still as wonderfully crafted and moving and inspiring as the first time I stayed up late reading it. And again I ache for more heroes in our lives. Our world could really use Superman too, don't you think?
Thank you so much for writing this. I hope life has been good, and I wish all the best things for you and yours.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from BlueEyedBrigadier
Utterly superb work! I basically marathoned the entire story in one sitting, as it caught me good and didn't let go until the very end!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Vashti
Amazing story! I've read it previously somewhere else (I think), but I was blown away all over again. The way you weave everything together, your plot pacing and movement, the twists,the highs and lows...there was a lot going on without ever feeling over-done or too busy. It was truly a pleasure to read it again.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from DieselDriver
This was a very cool story. I like the H.G. Wells at the end a lot. There was a book by Edmond Hamilton (who later wrote for DC comics) about a guy who was experimented on by his father, while the guy was still in the womb. I can't think of the name and I can't find it online but I have a copy in storage somewhere. It was published a year before the first Superman comic book. The guy's skin could deflect bullets, he could jump over a house, run 60 mph. Not quite the superman we all know and love but a good inspiration I think.
Anyway, I enjoyed this story very much.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from RevDorothyL
I just read this story for the third time (or possibly the fourth time) -- I re-read this fic whenever the world feels particularly hopeless and politics is making me even more cynical than usual, because it's so full of HOPE and REDEMPTION for cynical, world-weary souls like me and your Lois Lane!
Thanks for putting a hopeful smile on my face, yet again!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from chrysanthemum
Fantastic story. The fragmentation was perfect for the flow and theme of the plot, and I absolutely loved the analysis about the economics, weather, and credibility involved in saving the world. You are completely amazing.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from jakedaman
That is how I felt reading this story. To quote Nightcourt, "I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me."
And I did. I laughed, I cried (in a manly way, of course). I couldn't put this story down. It was so "real" as in I could actually see it happening here our "reality".

Review of chapter "The sound of thunder" from Letomo
I still remember the Lois and Clark episode that intro'd a version of Clark like your protaganist, and the one you created flows so well from that, wow. I've re-read this story now, and still enjoy it.
Thanks for writing and sharing!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from JonnWolfe
This was a FANTASTIC story. Sort of 'Smallville' meets Christopher Reeve era Superman (at the end anyway). This was a true origin story that's better than the 52 hoohah.
I thoroughly enjoyed every chapter.
(Lana is a prat... just saying)
