Devil Comics Review | Superman: Rebirth #1 [2016]

Hype The Pre-Flashpoint Superman has now become the Post-New 52 Superman bringing with him the legacy of stories following Crisis on Infinite Earths. Now this Superman brings with him his son who was born in DC Comics Convergence event. 

Rehash The issue begins when Lana Lang decides to take Clark Kent’s ashes back to Smallville to be buried with his parents. The Post-Crisis Superman tells her that Clark would be reborn again like he was after his battle with Doomsday. Lana discovers Kryptonian artifacts brought him back and together along with Clark’s body take him to the Fortress of Solitude. However the regeneration matrix does not exist in this universe so Superman helps Lana bury Clark in Smallville with his parents. 

Feedback Superman: Rebirth reads like an epilogue issue to the Final Days of Superman story arc instead of something new after DC Universe Rebirth. I was expecting more following DC Universe Rebirth however it is a quiet personal issue.
