I wasnt sure what to expect when I learned about this new series. I thought they were going to explain the creative process that went into creating these characters. Instead, they are fiction biographies of said character and their overall story.
Rated E for Everyone
Superman is super because of his actions, not just his powers.
He believes in the good in you.
I love how the main focus of Supermans story was that his greatest power was being kind. It was heartwarming how his adopted Earth parents taught him kindness, perseverance, compassion, and to treat people with respect, no matter where theyre from. It inspired me to learn more about Supermans kindest moments.
My favorite part was how the story included the famous narrative, Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
I would like to take this opportunity to discuss Supermans flying technique (and his costume design) using this Frazz comic:
Ive wanted to share this comic for years, and I finally found a book where it is relevant.
After losing his parents at a young age, Bruce Wayne dedicates his life to cleaning up the streets of Gotham.
He will never stop protecting you.
I was hoping to learn why the creators chose bats as Batmans persona, but not much was said on the subject. The initial drawing of the character did have big bat wings, but where did the idea originate? I still dont know.
Batman is definitely my favorite DC hero. With nothing more than sheer determination, he proves that you dont need superpowers to be a superhero.
Sidenote: Does anyone know why there is a T-Rex and a giant penny in the Bat Cave?
What a great start to a new series! I wonder how many DC heroes Brad Meltzer plans to write about? Im hoping for books on Zatanna, Green Lantern, and The Flash. I think the next book will be about Wonder Woman.
