The subtle reference to The Incredible Hulk had me rolling.

Movie did fantastic comedy wise for me.

Please retcon him...I thought almost from the beginning that the New 52 origin they set up was too convoluted. If they do it now we could see how it affects John, an actual son of Superman. It'd almost be a Jason Todd/Dick Grayson dynamic, which I think would be fantastic.

@ficopedia: It kind of just...idk, stopped? I'm really at the point in the year, though, where school takes up most of my time. I'd write right now if I could but it just doesn't happen sometimes.

@blackdog2009: And you're saying that you were happy with the lackluster stories that we were getting in the New 52? Morrison did the best job IMO and after that it was nothing but a few sparks of light in a dark cave. I was okay with the Wonder Woman relationship through its entirety because it was clear that the New 52 was not a place for Lois and Clark to be a thing. Speaking of which, that Convergence title that they had was one of the better reviewed titles from that event. That just proves that people wanted to see the old status quo back with Lois and Clark.

Everything going on in Rebirth is a work in progress! We're slowly getting answers about what's going on and it's keeping me interested. Which was something I can honestly say the New 52 Superman did not. Maybe at a few points, but not enough. And I agree with @kiba, this isn't a revision, it's a restoration. Either spend the rest of your life reading New 52, or get on board with change. You proved you were able to do it with New 52, so do it now.

I stuck by New 52 Superman since the beginning. In fact, I never even bought Superman titles until the New 52 started. You know how I felt? Bored. Completely and totally. The main Superman book started out with a story that was a pain for me to read through, only to have an okay ending which turned out to be connected to what was going on in Action Comics (barely). Morrison was great, though. He took a great spin on the start of Superman's career and I legitimately felt excited to read the books each month. I'm sorry to see what Morrison built being played off by the new Rebirth storyline, though I'm sure it'll find a way to fit in somehow. Superman only got interesting during the H'el storyline, but that was just barely. Lobdell got the ball moving, but the story was too huge and kept being revisited later on to amount to much. Not to mention the fact that it became super complicated when they had the "Return to Krypton" storyline. After that, the storytelling was pretty much Big Bad vs. Angry Superman with different results (Snyder did a good job, but took to long; Pak started great, but quickly the quality fell).

My point being is that I stuck through all of that expecting something in return and I never got what I wanted (I'm referring to the awful Vandal Savage story). All that the relationship with Wonder Woman gave me was nostalgia for his relationship with Lois (who practically had no role in the book whatsoever until she exposed Superman as being Clark Kent). The Rebirth story is making me interested in Superman again. The overall mystery surrounding Lois, Clark, and Superman from the New 52 reality is great, seeing Superman as a dad trying to train his son is fantastic, and seeing Superman actually stand up to his villains instead of punching first, asking questions later is the Superman that I've always wanted to read.

If you liked New 52 Superman, great. But I didn't, and I'm happy to have the old one back.

I gave it a solid 8. I liked the acting, and I found Andrew Garfield to be a better Spider-Man over Maguire, mainly because I found him more convincing as a high school student. That, and the overall universe that it was setting up that I'm just a little upset didn't come to pass, was very promising.

@cbishop: I'll make sure that finds its way in the next chapter. An "Angry Den" moment if you will
