Back to title selection : Comics A : All-Star Superman Vol 1
Clark Kent's "bumbling" demeanor is seen in this series, a throw-back to his early characterization, seen in particular prior to the retcon of the character in John Byrne's miniseries The Man of Steel, done after DC Comics' profound changes to its continuity in the limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths. As well, the specific manner in which Clark Kent reveals his dual identity to Lois Lane differs from the same occurrence (in 1993) in the regular DC Comics continuity, which took place only after Clark and Lois were romantically involved.
Another notable difference is that Lois refuses to believe that Clark and Superman are the same man, since Superman has been so convincing in his past efforts to make it appear the two are different people. (References are made to Bruce Wayne impersonating Clark, a ruse that was used numerous times during the Silver Age era of Superman.) Writer Grant Morrison, in a recent interview, describes the series as "the re-emergence of the original, Pre-Crisis Superman but with 20 years of history we haven't seen."
The continuity of this title is completely separate from those of all other All Star titles.
