Superman is Super Again

After several years of lackluster Superman comic stories, "Superman" issue No. 708 finally created some magical awe and "wonder."
Although the Superman writers got their geography mixed up and had some of the story take place in Lincoln, Nebraska, instead of Omaha, as previously announced, this was one of the best Man of Steel sagas in a few years.
There was good action and imagination -- a glimpse at Supermen and Superwomen of the future, a new female villain and a heavy-hitting guest star -- Wonder Woman.
Here's a comic that will be fun to re-read over the years.
This is how all Superman comics should be.
When Superman returns to Action comics soon, hopefully 2011 will be a banner year for Kal-El.
As a sidelight in the latest Superman issue, Wonder Woman has "re-started" her career from scratch. All written about her before is apparently gone.
So, how Superman can not know her is somewhat absurd, but hey, anything is possible in comics!
