Superman: Grounded

{5/5} “If we do the same things, in the same way, over and over, in time, we fall asleep in our own lives.” — Jonathan Kent

Superman: Grounded (2 volumes) by J. Michael Straczynski, G. Willow Wilson, Chris Roberson & others, published in 2011

Superman is having some doubts and decides to slow things down — he goes for a walk, to get back in touch with the people of the country he’s chosen to call home. Along the way he helps people, of course — in big ways and small. And he demonstrates to people that they can do better — that they can be better.

I absolutely adore the character of Superman in this story — he cares about people, and he does whatever it takes to help them. He’s inspirational. Lois Lane and Perry White are terrific characters too.

Guest stars include Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash.

I like how both Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne read comic books as kids — and they call each other “Smallville” and “Gotham.”

This is the 2nd time I’ve read these books.

I previously reviewed Straczynski’s Superman: Earth One.
