Parker's Superman is the classic hero - immensely powerful, yet his first instinct is to appease his opponent, close a situation without violence. Leon is a dupe, but mind over matter makes him a credible threat, as seen in my favourite sequence (click on image to enlarge).
Matthew Wilson's vibrant colours make excellent illustrations even better, while Wes Abbott's letters add another layer. Kudos too, to cover colourist David Baron for his sunshine hues. Said cover is topped by a favourite logo variation - I love how the original Siegel and Shuster masthead 'S' sneaks in at the end of 'Adventures' - the only thing that could improve it would be to bring that little lost 'of' into the fold - doesn't it deserve display lettering too?
An added visual treat is that Adventures of Superman gets to feature Superman in his traditional outfit - look ma, red underpants! And an unashamed spit curl! If Parker and Samnee handle Clark Kent and the Daily Planet as well as they do Superman and regular folks, then I'm declaring it - New 52 be darned, the real Superman is back!
