Review of chapter "Starlight" from DieselDriver
It boggles my mind the number of people who think a "mating" between Superman and Lois Lane, or any Earth woman (possible exception of an Amazonian) would even be survivable by the woman, let alone produce an offspring of any kind. The only possible way a child would be possible is if we shared a genetic ancestor some time a long time ago that allowed the two races to develop differently and yet still be viable. Chances of the offspring themselves having offspring would be remote to none. Look at a horse and donkey. They produce mules. Mules are sterile and the parents evolved on the same planet. Nope, even if Superman got horny enough to have sex with a human female the involuntary contractions that force the sperm out of the male and into the female would likely blow the top of her head off. That wouldn't be pleasant for anyone. Read Larry Niven's essay "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex". Read all of Larry's books!

Edit: Comment to your reply. No, that wasn't a demand. Just thoughts. Larry's books are really cool. BTW, I grew up in a time when Superman wasn't powered by the sun, just enabled. He didn't get tired ever. They have nerfed him tremendously since I was a kid. Plus if I didn't like your stories I wouldn't comment at all nor continue to read them.

Oh and BTW, if you are interested in where DC got the original idea for Superman, I honestly believe they got it from a novel by Edmund Hamilton, published in 1930, 2 years before the first Superman comic was published name of "Gladiator". Different origin but same result because originally he could run really fast, survive tank gunshots and jump over buildings. But he wasn't alien, simply the results of a mad scientist who experimented on his wife's unborn child. Had to build him a crib made of wrought iron.
Comments from author:
Wow, you're really going to try and impose absolute real life science on a character that has skin and eyeballs that look and feel just as soft as our own to our base senses but can survive the vacuum of space without taking any kind of damage, not to mention can get stronger from the multitude of radiation produced from the sun, but can be killed by a rock that doesn't harm humans at all? Not to mention that in the two universes you have demigods, demon-human hybrids, fifth dimensional imps, men who can run faster than the speed of light after being struck by lightning, rings that can form solid constructs by harnessing emotions, and magic. All this and it the super sperm will blow a woman's head off that's shattered your suspension of disbelief? Also where is Larry Niven's empirical scientific proof that those muscles are involuntary on a Kryptonion? Go ahead, point out how he got a hold of a Kryptonion to dissect just to prove his theories are right. Because after all if a species can smash through walls without getting damaged, lift small mountains, fly, and shoot lasers out of their eyes it's completely reasonable to assume that everything else about them will function exactly like it does in a human.

You demand I read Larry's books, I demand you read the comics. In the New 52 Superman and Lois Lane have a son who is currently kicking around in the Superboy title.

Edit: Huh, didn't know that. Would explain what could inspire a couple of Jewish kids to change a character from Lex Luthor with telepathy to something that almost fit Hitlers ideal man to a T.

Review of chapter "Prolog" from AnthonyR
i havent read this chapter yet but there's some mistakes. first its Prologue. secone i dont think you did the math. if you have superman dieng during world war 2, there is no way he can be xander's father, his grandfather maybe, but not his father.
Comments from author:
First yeah you got me on the spelling of the chapter, but I did do the math. All I can say is that time travel via Luthor device was involved.

Review of chapter "Starlight" from orangemike
The Lantern will not function for anyone Ethan would wish to empower, is my attitude. I take that particular mythology very seriously, for some reason.
Comments from author:
Not too familiar with Golden Age GL beyond the basics, but I know that in the Silver Age a lot of jerks and even evil people used the ring so that's how I figured it could work.

Review of chapter "A Detour" from Caliadragon
This is such a wonderful story and series! I love the way that things are going so far and I look forward to seeing what happens when Xander meets up with the others and their decendants.

Comments from author:
Not everyone will have a decendent, as you will see, but I'm glad you are enjoying this.

Review of chapter "A Wonder" from CPTSkip
I am still enjoying your story. What is with Xander and super powered women? They either want to kill him or make him their little brother. I hope Xander and Diana Jr. can work things out. Lol!
Comments from author:
Prehaps in time, but for the next few stories I'm just going to enjoy having a female character that gives Superman a hard time.

Review of chapter "Its cold down there" from CPTSkip
This is a lovely bitter-sweet story. I like the idea of SuperXander and I think you are doing a good job showing his emotional reaction to all the trama in his life. I wonder what his Kryptonian name is? I just hope some of the other Scoobies eventually get neat superpowers also. Lol!
Comments from author:
Glad you are enjoying it! Xanders Kryptonian name is Jo-El, with the birth name of Joel for us humans.

Don't worry at least one other member will have a conection with the JSA. Maybe. It all depends on how you look at it really. (Insane Laughter)

Review of chapter "No snappy title" from Stormy
Is he really Supermans son? Didn't have a clue with most of the first chapter, i'm assuming it's how some died but not sure who. Keep going!!!!
Comments from author:
Who the prolog was talking about will be revealed later, so don't worry too much about it. As for the Supermans son thing, the how that is possable will be revealed in the next chapter.
