Superman: Earth One (2010)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Superman: Earth One (2010) This re-imagines Superman's origin tale, making it a bit harsher, like what Marvel does with its characters in the Ultimate Universe. A young Clark Kent moves to Metropolis and goes on a job search. He tries out for the football team, applies at a top scientific lab, tries out for baseball and a construction job. He excels at them all and gets lucrative job offers. But when he calls home and talks to his adoptive mother about the potential money, she tells him not to worry about her and that he should be doing what he wants to do. But his dead father, Jonathan, had wanted him to be a hero and help humanity. In fact, it's Martha who had sewn his Superman costume from the material she found in the crashed spaceship. He's not ready yet to become that hero. But when an alien ship attacks the Earth, demanding that he show himself, he must act. This triggers the ship itself, which had been recovered by the U.S. Military the 20 years before. It repairs itself and comes to his aid. Clark also gets information downloaded into his mind, info about his planet and biological parents. The alien that is attacking comes from a planet in the same solar system as Krypton--and was responsible for the destruction of that planet. Now that alien wants to kill him, the last survivor. So, thousands of people are killed on Earth simply because he's there, which is something he'll have to live with. So there's the sense that he'll do the super-hero thing to make up for this disaster.

Of course, he also meets Lois Lane, Perry White and Jimmy Olsen at the Daily Planet. He gets a job there as a reporter because he manages to get an exclusive interview with this "Superman".

I like this rebooted version of Superman.
