Reviews for A Painful Beginning
bgrubb chapter 1 . 12/25/2001
An interesting story but there is one minor glitch. In Earth-1 history Lexor was destroyed shortly before Crisis when a weapon Luthor fired at Superman hit the core stablition rod causing Lexor to explode like Krypton.

I should mention that of of the Earth's 4.5 billion most are in what are called "Third World" countries like China and India. It is unlikely given the technology left around that the governments of the world would go into a built up population mode.

A very interesting beginning. I'd love to see this continue.

Excellent strong anti-bigotry work and interesting stuff all round, a truly bittersweet look at what life would be like after the destruction of most of all life.
