    A true hidden gem of Superman lore Superman lands on a small farm before the Civil War and the Confederate forces are in for a surprise Roger Stern weaves a tale that will leave you wondering about how Superman would have handled historic roles at critical points in the formation of the US Eduardo Barreto does a fine job as artist Nice read.

    What if Superman had fought in the Civil War Atticus Kent joins the Union army and discovers his powers when he goes into battle It s an interesting premise on how it would have shortened the war and changed America The end was very dumb where he becomes the Lone Ranger with a silver horse he made from his spaceship.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here A Nation Divided is a frustrating comic It has an interesting premise Superman lands on Earth in the 1840s and ends up fighting in the Civil War for the North in 1863, where he discovers his powers I give Roger Stern credit for not going the Dave Gibbons route and insert a Lex Luthor doppleganger who just happens to have Krytonite Superman does what you d expect and roots the South with far less bloodshed and the war ends with a far less bloody Gettysburg.From there, my big question is what A Nation Divided is a frustrating comic It has an interesting premise Superman lands on Earth in the 1840s and ends up fighting in the Civil War for the North in 1863, where he discovers his powers I give Roger Stern credit for not going the Dave Gibbons route and insert a Lex Luthor doppleganger who just happens to have Krytonite Superman does what you d expect and roots the South with far less bloodshed and the war ends with a far less bloody Gettysburg.From there, my big question is what happens How does this change the shape of America, and of Lincoln Does a Superman raised with 19th Century midwest values, most likely raised against the backdrop of Bleeding Kansas, the pre Civil War skirmish over slavery that set the stage for the 1860s election and the War, differ from a 20th Century Superman What could the team of Abraham Lincoln and Superman bring to the world If Superman was similar to his normal self, that would be one of the greatest combinations of goodness the world has ever seen, or would it still be And here s an interesting question, could Superman helping the union to a quicker victory actually prolong slavery While Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation in January 1863, it only applied to those states in rebellion and didn t ban slavery but rather freed existing slaves The border states slave states that stayed with the North could still have slaves and could feasibly replenish the Southern slave population Lincoln himself said he d be happy not to end slavery if it kept the Union together On the other hand, with Lincoln alive, we may have seen a reconstruction that was far gentler on the South and fargenerous Slavery would certainly eventually be on the road to abolition in a decade or so due to changes in the economy that were accelerated by the War However, without the heavy handed reconstruction which was enabled by a long and bloody war and the assassination of Lincoln, might full emancipation for all and Civil Rights have come with far less fighting and anger leading toharmonious race relations today These are among the fascinating ideas which Mr Stern s story doesn t address Now to be fair, this is a Prestige comic book, and not a 300 page novel or a treatise, but if you re going to tell an alternate history as an lLseworld tale, you need to tell how this What If scenario would affect the world or the superhero Instead, Stern completely avoids the implications and imagines Superman discovering a message from his Kyrptonian parents that leads him to in effect become the Lone Ranger What a waste of a good premise

    I really enjoyed it, it was a nice read I haven t read any Superman comic books even though I have obviously heard about his story It was interesting to see him in another context than today s society for example I ll keep readingabout him because I don t really know his backstory and I definitely want to knoweven if he is not my favourite DC character TEAM WONDER WOMAN BATMAN ALL THE WAY.

    Like all Else World comics, this comic plugs Superman into another time and place His name is Atticus Kent and he has no idea of his powers Cool right While fighting for the Union Atticus becomes aware of his powers when he takes a hit from a cannon ball to the chest Slowly with each battle he discovers his powers like flight, and his heat vision The comic was drawn well and I loved the panels, they flowed well The writing was good until the end of the war where Superman saves Lincoln Now Like all Else World comics, this comic plugs Superman into another time and place His name is Atticus Kent and he has no idea of his powers Cool right While fighting for the Union Atticus becomes aware of his powers when he takes a hit from a cannon ball to the chest Slowly with each battle he discovers his powers like flight, and his heat vision The comic was drawn well and I loved the panels, they flowed well The writing was good until the end of the war where Superman saves Lincoln Now I am NOT saying that it would have stunk if Lincoln had lived but from there the story gets a little odd It s almost like the writers were not sure how the story was suppose to end I don t want to put a spoiler but the ending felt REALLY forced and almost a last minute idea Still a great read though, and I will never stop looking for Else World back issues

    There s not a whole lot of point to this, not much new it d explore of Superman s character, nor much in the way of bizarre new directions the history of America would ve taken because of him The twist ending actually teases for a far better andinteresting comic it could have been.But it s quite inoffensive for what it is, decently written, the art is fine, and it gets at least some credit for not putting in a steampunk Lex Luthor or something as well.Would be two and half stars if we had There s not a whole lot of point to this, not much new it d explore of Superman s character, nor much in the way of bizarre new directions the history of America would ve taken because of him The twist ending actually teases for a far better andinteresting comic it could have been.But it s quite inoffensive for what it is, decently written, the art is fine, and it gets at least some credit for not putting in a steampunk Lex Luthor or something as well.Would be two and half stars if we had halves

    It s alright I guess Given the concept, it really lacks ambition or creativity It s Superman in the Civil Warand that s exactly what you ll get.

    Nggak heran kenapa pihak utara memenangkan Civil War, karena Superman jadi prajurit pihak utara Btw, dia baru tahu semua superpowernya di dalam perang, dan langsung beradaptasi dengan mudah, nggak pakai latihan lagi.Superman juga mengubah sejarah, menyelamatkan Presiden Lincoln, karena kebetulan sedang jadi tamu kehormatan sang presiden.

    I love the Elseworlds series This entry was solid, offering a new take on the characters, but was a little simplistic A quick, fun read.
