Collecting the critically lauded 4-issue miniseries written by Kurt Busiek (JLA/AVENGERS, ASTRO CITY) with art by Stuart Immonen (SUPERMAN: END OF THE CENTURY, THOR).

Set in the real world, SECRET IDENTITY examines the life of a young Kansas man with the unfortunate name of Clark Kent. All Clark wants is to be a writer, but his daily life is filled with the taunts and jibes of his peers, comparing him to that other Clark Kent -- the one with super-powers. Until one day when Clark awakens to discover that he can fly...that he does in fact have super-strength! But where did these powers come from? And what's he going to do about it?

Once upon a time, Kurt Busiek wrote another story about one of his faf subjects...What is a world that has superheroes, like? What would the real world be like, if there was a superhero in it? For example, the Man of tomorrow.

Clark Kent finds out that he seems to have the powers of his fictional name sake. And things get complicated from there on...

The story got its inspiration from DC Comics Presents #87 - Year of the Comet.
