I loved this issue
The side story was beautiful and emotional.
The origins of superman was amazing.
The talking ship is great.
Martha and Kent are the best couple in comics, i have seen so far. they are an example of rare beautiful people in this world who stick together no matter what.
And ofc i don't know who the four villains are and who are the three comrades of superman they have weird costumes i would be amazed if they are actually supergirl and superboy and someone else but, actually not only

The art is just so bad, I couldn't tell what the hell was going on at the end. I saw this jagged thing, some confusing looking silhouettes talking about Kryptonite and time travel and then there was superman in the future standing there in the last panel.

I really wish DC took better pains to reboot their series. I understand the reasons, and conceptually there's so much good stuff happening...but with the worst framing, dialog and art I've ever seen. The baby superman was just god aweful.

With the current threat still a major one, Superman's history is told both on Krypton and Earth, as well as both of his parents. This was an interesting way to weave in his past in with the present.
