The End of New Krypton
World of New Krypton ends this week, and I for one am glad. That maxi-series ending means that in a few months Superman will be back where he belongs.
That said, it has been an interesting tale they've told over the past year. Indeed, for the greater story that DC is trying to tell (I'll leave you to decide whether or not it's one worth telling) World of New Krypton was probably necessary. Without Superman in the midst of those other Kryptonians we would never have been able to see exactly why Superman is so special.
The entire point of the story (besides giving us a glimpse at the technological marvels and alien flora/fauna of Krypton) has been to show why Superman is one of a kind. If nothing else, the story has managed that. We see a host of Kryptonians who think that their powers make them, well, powerful.
But even with the raw physical power to move planets they lack the real power that Superman has always had. This story may have tried to take that away (with the "World Against Superman" malarkey) but that is not something so easily destroyed. For the people of Earth Superman is someone special. And even twelve months away from the planet can't change that.
