    Reviews - Superman - #8

Helspont explains - Nawfalq
This is a bit of a difficult issue to rate, I think. The storyline seems a bit forced; an alien is exiled from his brethren and seeks out Superman to help him return from exile and overthrow those against him. "Seeks out" is putting it in a vague way. It's more like "coerce, threaten." That all seems forced, but the story does give room for Superman to answer some "problematics" that are posed to him. For example, why does he protect and care for humans? Helspont points out that humans are divisive and unwelcoming. Superman's answers might not be everyone's favorite responses - but at last, there is something to add depth to this character. Superman was "raised on hope." Not a bad issue - but somewhat weird because these discussions are held between bouts of Supes and Helspont smacking each other around the Himalayas. Odd.
