From GeekDad: Superman #18 is the issue DC has been building towards for a while, as Superman reveals his secret identity to the world. The problem, and this is something writer Brian Michael Bendis and the DC PR team has had to address, is that this is not the first time this story has been done. An elaborate New 52 story had Superman’s identity exposed by Lois Lane, to very mixed reviews. So what do you do when the story you want to do has already been told in the wrong way? Simple – you do it the right way, and that’s exactly what Bendis and Ivan Reis do with this fantastic character-driven issue. Bendis smartly keeps the focus exactly where it should be – on the characters most important to Superman and how they influence his decision. The story picks up with Superman holding a press conference that will be streamed worldwide, as everyone from his family to the criminals he’s locked up in Stryker’s Island watch. But that scene is spliced with individual scenes as he makes his decision and tells those closest to him first.
