Conclusions on Superman: Truth

www.dccomics.com
I just finished reading Superman: Truth. The main focus of the story is Lois Lane has informed to the world that Clark Kent is Superman. The story then follows how the people of Metropolis react to the news, along with the new Batman, played by Jim Gordon, and Wonder Woman.

I really enjoyed this story. I feel that it did a great job of emphasizing Clark Kent the "man". One aspect of the Superman character I've never really liked, is when the writers try to make Superman out to be a "god". I always enjoyed it when Superman is written as a man that can do extraordinary things. For me that's the magic of the character. He's an individual who understands who he is and accepts it. It's like he is fully accepting himself.

Truth really hit on these aspects of the character. Now the story is told non-linearly. I recommend that you read it in the following order by titles:

Superman
Action Comics
Superman/Wonder Woman
Batman/Superman

If you are looking for a different type of Superman story, Truth is one to check out.

I'd be curious to see how they give Clark Kent humbling moments.

There's one really "humbling" moment when Clark goes to talk to Perry White after he has been outed as Superman.
