This is yet another retelling of Superman's origin. But this is a good retelling. In this version of Superman's origin, Clark Kent is a 21 year-old who is unsure of himself and his future. He leaves Smallville to begin his new life in Metropolis. He finds that he can do just about anything, but he doesn't really find himself until the world is threatened by an alien fleet led by an alien named Tyrell. This story of a younger, hipper, edgier Superman is definitely one for the next generation.
