After Superman's death, Kong Kenan inherits Superman's solar powers in the New-52 continuity and joins China's Justice League. Real world political and social issues in China are the impetus for a Justice League in China. It is up to this new group to end the political tensions in their country. At the same time, they are finding themselves as people.

China's Justice League is unique and separate from the ones we grew up with. I enjoyed this book and like how the story takes the reader to a unique setting like China where we can see the political and social issues that go on there. This is a rarely explored place in the DC Comics universe. The narrative and artwork for this book are both unique and captivating.
I recommend buying New Super-Man, Vol 1: Made In China. It is a great superhero book for people trying to get into and understand comics. It is a rare one, too, because there are very few books that explore political and social issues in other countries.
Captivating artwork and a unique setting will engage readers in this "corner" of the DC universe.
This is the first in a DC Comics series that expands the Justice League into new territories and issues.
This is a story to read for fun. If you are interested in talking comics, you might start with the Justice League itself. Our reviewer notes that the story introduces a justice league that is "different from the ones we grew up with." Engage your reader in discussing what makes it different - and what makes it similar. How do they recognize that it is a justice league?
