It's like listening to Smallville.

I even imagined the characters as being played by the actors from the show. Brilliant!

I wanted more!

I love the idea of the DC Icon Series and the origins of these amazing superheroes! Matt de la Pena did a great job of engaging me with his descriptions and dialogues, as well as putting a different spin on this story for me. However, this is the one origin that we know a lot about and therefore might have been even better going all the way back to his infancy. I think that would have given it the same length and depth of the others and made it even more enthralling!
