What's in a name? Everything, if you share it with the "Man of Steel!" "Superman: Secret Identity" collects the critically lauded, 4-issue, "Prestige Format" mini-series written by Kurt Busiek ("JLA/Avengers", "Astro City") with stellar art by Stuart Immonen ("Superman: End of the Century", "Thor").
Set in the real world, "Secret Identity" examines the life of a young Kansas man with the unfortunate name of Clark Kent.
All Clark wants is to be a writer, but his daily life is filled with the taunts and jibes of his peers, comparing him to that other Clark Kent - the one with super-powers.
Until one day when Clark awakens to discover that he can fly...that he does, in fact, have super-strength!
But where did these powers come from? And what's he going to do about it?

Review by zzamboni
My all-time favorite Superman story. The story of a regular kid named Clark Kent, mercilessly teased for his name, who one day discovers he actually has Superman's powers. The story follows him through his life from teenage through old age. No supervillains, rather trying to live a "normal" life while helping people on the side, trying to keep his powers a secret, keeping the government off his back, having a wife and raising a family. A story with a nice human touch and beautifully drawn.
