Superman #700

To be honest I haven't been a regular reader of Superman for a very long time. Much like Batman #700 this issue gives us three tales, though here they are unrelated. The first guest-stars the Parasite in the long awaited reunion of the Man of Steel and Lois Lane. The last is a grief stricken woman laying a planet-sized guilt trip on our hero causing him a level of introspection that seems odd given the length in his history (you'd think he'd have come to grips with such circumstances decades ago). But it's the middle story, guest-starring a young Dick Grayson as Robin, that works best. There are some fun moments including Superman trying to save Dick from Bruce's wrath by quickly doing his homework and the Batman's message to Clark in the epilogue. Worth a look.
