Superman by Matt de la Pena Clark Kent has continuously been faster, stronger--better--than everybody around him. But he wasn't raised to appear off, and drawing consideration to himself can be perilous. Also, it's not like he's earned his powers . . . yet. But control comes with a price. Lately, it's difficult to hold back and keep his heroics within the shadows. When Clark takes after the sound of a young lady crying, he comes over Gloria Alvarez and finds a dull mystery sneaking in Smallville. Turns out, Clark's not the as it were one covering up something. Joining up with his best companion, Lana Lang, he tosses himself into the interest of the truth. What fiendish lies below the surface of his little town? And what will it take a toll Clark to memorize almost his past as he steps into the light to end up long run Man of Steel? Since some time recently he can spare the world, he must spare Smallville.
