The first ballyhooed issue of Brian Michael Bendis’ run on Superman is here. Does it redefine the Superman mythos? No, but it’s a mostly solid Superman story.

Steve Orlando and company make getting the band together feel fresh and definitely earn the trust of readers who pick up Justice League of America Rebirth #1.
