I enjoyed it. The changes seem to work in Morrisons hands and like he has repeatedly said, this is his take on a social justice Superman. He delivers on that, for me anyway. Also a couple of things are subtly set up in the issue that will become important later. Like the purple tie thief! What I am looking forward to is seeing this Superman grow and develop over time, gaining new powers and improving his skills. The art is a bit iffy in places which is a shame. Overall it is a good book I think.

I actually liked it quite a bit. It's weird, because I found the art to just be okay and the writing seemed kind of clunky ("It's Clark Kent, my best friend for the last six months!" - "Oh, Clark Kent, who works for our rival newspaper?" come the demon Etrigan. -- maybe it's intentionally retro) but overall I'm really digging it and am eager to read issue #2.
I didn't quite grasp something though -- how did Clark know something was up with the train?

I cannot stand Rags Morales' take on Jimmy Olsen. That was my only complaint.
I got really excited when I noticed the Legion of Superheroes reference, that might have been my favourite bit.

What was the Legion reference?

Am I the only one to think the t-shirt, jeans AND cape is kinda... well... awful?

Aw, c'mon, it'll be a boon to budget-minded cosplayers at next year's cons.
It's a homemade costume for a "Year One" story. For that purpose, it's fine.

No, they really need to explain why he decided to add the cape.
I'm old and getting grumpy.

Apparently, its the blanket he was wrapped in by Jor-El and Lara.

I dig the year 0 costume more than the "current" one. I hate Superman w/collar.

The general consensus is "yes." I didn't pick it up at first (well, I got that line was a bit off, but I couldn't quite place it). It seems to me that even though this is a more down to earth Superman to start, Morrison is setting up for some rather crazy stuff down the line.

More so than the implied armor?
