Superman Birthright #1 (2003)

2003SupermanBirthright1

In a re-telling of Superman’s origin, Superman Birthright loosely borrows stories from various sources and continuities.  That, however, by no means implies that it’s a mere copy.  This first issue starts on Krypton as we see Jor-El and Lara testing ship after ship which eventually fail.  Finally, after baby Kal-El is sent off in a ship that succeeds, we are transported in time to Clark Kent as an adult twenty-five years later.  We learn that he has travelled to West Africa and is on special assignment.  In addition to fact gathering, Clark immediately finds himself protecting the Ghuri Tribe and its wise leader Kobe Asuru from assassins.
