Superman #41 is the debut issue of new writer Gene Luen Yang and is the first part of a story arc that will reveal the events leading to the outing of Superman's identity by Lois Lane and his new look. Yang has made this issue accessible for new readers who haven't been following the man of steel's adventures. The journey begins with an anonymous tip leading Clark to a secret weapons manufacturing plant where things get a bit out of hand and quickly require his alter ego to suit up. As part of the action that ensues Superman requires the use of his solar flare ability introduced in Geoff Johns brief run leaving Clark more vulnerable in the aftermath. After further messages from the anonymous tipster it becomes clear they have more sinister motives and a conspiracy begins to unravel requiring Clark Kent to fight crime as we've never seen him before, using a covert outfit to completely hide his identity. The issue ends on a cliff hanger with the vulnerability of Clark raising the stakes. The previous art collaborators of John Romita Jr, Klaus Janson and Dean White add their usual flair to the pages of Superman, bringing the action scenes vividly to life. Yang successfully introduces plot points and raises intrigue to the anonymous individual contacting Clark and how these events lead to the new superman already introduced in Action Comics. Despite knowing where Superman will end up, stories are all about the journey, and this one is set to be a great one.
