In this collection of Superman tales from the seventies, the Man of Steel finds himself facing more realistic challenges and issues that are representative of the era. Although he fought against some of his greatest enemies- such as Lex Luthor, Brainiac, and the Parasite-Superman also began to address societal issues and philosophical questions in these stories. In three tales of social conscience, Lois Lane changes color and experiences life as an African American, Superman loses his vulnerability to Kryptonite and questions his role as Earth's protector and the Man of Steel also revisits Smallville and looks back at his boyhood with older and wiser eyes.
