    Stories of superheroes with various super powers by various authors The best is by book editor Varley about a Soviet Superman Mike Resnick contributed Acorns about a doctor doing his best to take care of the babies of superheroes Another good one is Press Conference by Brad Linaweaver, about the President caught in the middle of a battle of superheroes So there are several good stories, but most are so so at best And one of the most interesting stories is by Roger Zelazny, but it s not a superhe [...]

    Pretty disappointing stuff when you think of what people like Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, Mark Millar and even Kurt Busiek have done with the idea of considering super powered humans in the real world Alongside things like Marvels, Ruins, The Authority, Stormwatch, Astro City et al, this is generally unremarkable stuff A better bet is Soon I Shall Become Invinciblerry Niven s Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex is worth a look as well.rawbw svw supermanml

    An unusual take on superhero lore and a must read for science fiction lovers as well as superhero fans It s a compilation of short stories by various authors and delves into the psyche of what really makes a superhero great and how duty bound is he she to stick to that My personal favorite was And the Sea Shall Cast Him Out with Time for a Hero running a close second.

    A very good fun anthology dealing mostly with Superheros Most of the stories deal less with the character s superpowers but rather the issues they have within society A few that I liked were Reflected Glory , Time for a Hero and Super Acorns A great book for people who like short stories since most are well written and satisfactorily written in 20 pages or so.

    John Varley admits in the introduction that he never read comic books as a kid He collected stamps instead He did, however, have a cute idea for a story about Superman in Russia Might as well edit a book of superhero fiction and get the thing published Why not

    Super Acorns , about a young doctor working in a pediatric unit for metahumans, is definitely my favorite short story in this collection.

    Eric Gardner
    a couple fun shorts about super heroes, there s some Native American ones that don t really seem to fit the theme for me at least

    Most stories are only OK The best is the one by Varley One of the rare stories which caused me to tear up with laughter.

    A good anthology of Superhero stories.One, I m sure was the inspiration for Red Son Some of the stories are a little dated now This came out int he 80 s , but a good collection.

    A collection of deconstructionist tales of superheroes, by people who don t much like them.
