I had read all the terrible reviews of this issue before I read the issue itself…that is probably why I enjoyed this issue more then most as I expected it to be downright awful when there were actually some inspiring moments here. Yes, Superman should have taken the guy to the hospital and he does act like a pompous jackass at the end and to Lois, but I liked the idea of him taking on the gangsters and the women he stopped from committing suicide. So there is hope for this walk to be successful afterall I think.

Now this was more like it! Superman walks to Detroit, discovers illegal alien immigrants and revitalizes the detroit economy all in one issue. This was a huge improvement over the first issue of JMS’s run as her manages to combine comic book fights with social commentary and true heroism without seeming to be preachy. I am excited that Batman will be showing up too! It would have been nice for them to mention that the Justice League once worked out of detroit but oh well. Good issue.
