Review of chapter "Epilogue" from CatherineMichel
What can I possibly say that hasn't already been said? You nailed it! Maybe the BEST superhero story I've ever read! A friend directed me to this story and he is being properly thanked as I write this. As for you... Thank you is not nearly enough to express my appreciation. Your storytelling skills are superb and your research and grasp of that research are first rate. As someone else said, I laughed, I cried, I felt what your characters felt.
As a writer myself, and I have a book out, for sale on Amazon entitled Headlights Girl, I know what goes into crafting a good story. I seriously think this would make a GREAT movie. Since hollywood seems to be in the mood, let alone the habit, of re-writing origins of superheroes, why the hell not this way? I know this much... I'd pay to see it and I'd buy the DVD of it. I suppose you'd have to get DC Comics to agree with your version, but if they would, what a great movie it'd make!
Thank you for taking the time to write and present this for us to read and enjoy. I damn sure did enjoy it!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Grovtech
Ever since I saw the 'Man of Steel' movie I've really missed the real thing. This one, the Clark Kent, you wrote, is my Superman. Inspiring and with so much heart, he's the one of my childhood.
From beginning to end you nailed this story perfectly.

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".
