Superman: The Last Son The Deluxe Edition
Who is the true last son of Krypton?
Since he first arrived on our world as an infant, the Man of Steel believed that he was the only survivor of his native planet. But then another boy in a rocket crash-lands in Metropolis, and the unearthly powers he displays convince Clark Kent and his wife, Lois Lane, that they should raise him as their own. Joining Superman’s family, however, means taking on his enemies as well as his allies. Newly escaped from the Phantom Zone, General Zod and his renegade followers are determined to seize the child. Why is this youngster so precious? And can Superman protect both him and his adopted home from Zod’s plan to transform the Earth into a new Krypton?
Would-be warlords aren’t the only challenge that the Man of Tomorrow must face. His own imperfect clone, the misshapen monstrosity known as Bizarro, has created a new world to reflect his twisted body and mind—a mockery of a planet, where chaos and catastrophe are celebrated and ugliness is the ultimate virtue. When its zombie-like inhabitants turn on their misguided maker, he decides to kidnap Clark Kent’s adoptive father and force him to help subdue his subjects—or die trying. To rescue the man who raised him, Superman must brave the horrors of Bizarro World, where he will fight funhouse-mirror versions of some of his greatest foes—and friends.
