[Kinda Book Review] Superman Vol 1: Son of Superman

The Rebirth era brought some interesting new concept, in this one, we find Superman and Lois Lane married with a son, Jon. After the Crisis, they came from another universe where Superman died publicly. The story deals a lot with Jon's half-Kryptonian/ half-human heritage and that his powers come in as he grows up. Okay, classic stuff.

To complicate the plot, his DNA is identified by the Eradicator (a Kryptonian robot gone rogue). The story is interesting but drags on. The action is engaging, fast, and most of the story is interesting. The final reveal takes a long time to get there but is satisfying, if not surprising.

I will give it a solid 3/5. Overall, I would say this is a pretty classic Superman story with some twists caused by the Rebirth arc.
