I'm a little bit confused at this whole new setup. I liked the story a lot the way it was before, and I've just read it again. This beginning kind of confuses me and it really doesn't explain things as well as the last one. Not to say that it's still not good, because it is and on its own I would enjoy it. But it's just a bit confusing (also the pov shift has me a little confused). I would leave the original four chapters up and remove this last one, and launch it as another story. That, or you're going to have to remove the first four chapters completely and go at it from scratch. But don't lose all of the work you've done there! I still think it's excellent and if you can find a way to use some pieces of it and make it work then by all means do so. I'm glad to see you picking it back up! (coming from someone who is shamefully behind on her stories)... PS: What just happened to chapter 5? I tried to post the review and said it's gone... so I'm putting it here. :P

Noooooo! Please don't write in first person. I hate it and can't read it. Your first chapters were very good! I was willing to give it a go and you surprised me with your great writing. *Sigh* I suppose I'll have to drop it now... :'(

I've really enjoyed reading this story so far. I just discovered it, and it's been a great read. I really like your plot development...you've left so many clues and hints and yet there's so much mystery there too. This story could easily go so many directions and I hope you'll continue it so I can find out where it's suppose to go. Can't wait for Lois's first appearance. Should make for some interesting/awkward conversations! OH! And Where's Superman? ;)

Very good story. Hope you're able to continue it soon

I'm becoming more and more interested. I really wonder what Clark is going to do. The Luthor angle sounds interesting. I also wonder if Clark will be coming back as Superman or has to help Sean with his powers. I'm also curious about Sean's mother (Lois?). Keep it up... :-)

Very intriguing. Please update.
Lots of questions? Did Superman lose his powers from the K when he returned to Earth or did Clark decide to give up his career as Superman? If so why? Interesting story with lots of missing pieces.

Wow! Great start! I was a little thrown by the family dynamics at first, but followed it anyways, thinking maybe it was really AU... but you've certainly got me hooked now! I'm following this, and hoping I'll be able to catch up a little next week (lots to do, no time to do it, you know how it goes). I can't wait to read more!

And the plot thickens. I can't wait to see where this story goes.

| EevyLynn 8/28/12 . chapter 4
Awww, such a short chapter! I was hoping for a longer one. Oh well. I can't wait until the ball really gets rolling. This story is sounding like it'll be a good one.

I will always prefer villains who at least have a point and frighteningly may even be right about everyone being better off under their benevolent dictatorship (of course make education great so the common man does know what is best for him and his children's children and democratic republicanism can work) like Ra's al Ghul if the environment isn't brought into balance no matter the means or cost the future for the human race will be worse than any dystopian fiction and will lead to the extinction of the human race not through misadventure but suicide through stupidity or Lex Luthor who as he says if he was calling all the shots could end famine and cure cancer and he could his mind is capable of anything perhaps give everyone ultra high-tech non polluting technology and maybe even superpowers (without the White Martians ancient experiments all humanity would be like the Kryptonians or Daxamites) lead humanity and the rest of the universe to unimaginable glory remember Red Son he united all humanity and led us to a golden age that lasted millions of years, no poverty, disease, war, crime, terrorism, or environmental problems and science and art advance, he’s about the advancement of the human race by any means necessary it’s not that he’s a good man he’s not but he’s right about most things he’s too smart not to be
A lot of villains seem unaware that if they used their mind and/or other talents for legitimate business causes or the government could be far more profitable than any crime spree
Luthor has fanatical Nietzschean beliefs, that Superman undermines humanity’s worth and accomplishments
Of course vigilantes can be sanctimonious hypocrites judging others and letting themselves go unscrutinized condemning others when they do the same thing for less reasons I think it is disgusting they don't share their scientific breakthroughs (of course inventors should be well compensated) with the scientific specifically medical community or their skills with law enforcement agencies far more good than beating up thugs and psychos fight crime at its source ignorance and poverty. I realize due to rarity and complexity mass production may not always be possible or at least cost effective and due to difficulty not all could take brutal training but a little bit could go a very, very long way. A hero doesn’t just save people a hero teaches the people to take care of themselves. The ability to think of future generations when calculating pragmatic utilitarianism is what separates us from the animals. The world is not the way it is because of thugs and psychopaths, corrupt businessmen/politicians (which contrary to fiction are the exception not the rule) but because most people are too stupid to know what is best for them the extreme left and extreme right get caught up in their ideals and refuse to acknowledge brutal facts of reality no real world understanding of the extreme complexities of politics, economics, technological logistics, and how they’re all interconnected in the long run. People want everything right here right now the whole world just handed to them on a silver platter think just by complaining something will happen without a tangible plan. Such a plan will require a lot of long, hard, boring work all day every day for generations.
There will always be some exploitation, the best and brightest will elevate themselves over the common man, it’s nature, best for the species, it improves the standard of living of the human race as a whole, as long as they don’t kill anyone or otherwise actively oppress, free trade and enterprise is the only thing that has ever led to long lasting meaningful peace
I'm glad the government has Suicide Squad, Cadmus, Checkmate, the Elite, Amanda Waller, and the new female Spy Smasher, Cameron Chase I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting accountability from Superheroes, having checks and balances on these living breathing weapons of mass destruction seems quite reasonable to me, one will go left when they should go right and innocent people will die it WILL happen, not saying black ops don’t have their necessity, they can be used as a force of good
Have you heard of The Boys
Say you’re Harry Truman do you drop the bombs or do you drown the home islands in the blood of U.S. Marines, BATMAN has no answer to that question, people hire soldiers so they never have to use moral courage themselves Some villains do need to be put down permanently if they keep escaping and butchering innocents

Great going so far. Looks like it backfired not telling Sean the whole truth. I wonder where Lois took off too? Or is she still at the Daily Planet and Clark had been the one to bail out. Hope to see more soon.
