Superman: Rebirth #1

   DC is maintaining that this "Rebirth" is not a "Reboot" - and that's a shame, because if any title needs a fresh start, it's the one starring Superman.

    That's because the series has a major problem - the "New 52" version of Superman is apparently dead (perhaps it was a mercy killing).

   Luckily there's another Superman wandering around. This one is apparently married to Lois Lane and they have a son. I have no idea where he came from, and the comic offers no help.

   But the other Superman doesn't seem to have much interest in being a hero (though he doesn't mind running around in the "basic black" version of the super-suit).

   The advance previews for both Superman's title and Action Comics offer little clue about the plans for the Superman legacy (it looks like Lex Luthor is taking over Action for a while) - but it definitely needs work.

   And a live version of the title character.

Grade: C+
