An Elseworlds tale! What if there was no Superman? What if the DC Universewas forever changed because of a single, tiny nail?
Collected together for thefirst time ever, these two Elseworlds classics examine a world without the Manof Steel after, years in the past, a flat tire prevents Ma and Pa Kent fromdiscovering a small rocket ship with an alien baby inside.
As a result, theworld's greatest hero never comes to be.
Without Superman as a symbol ofunimpeachable integrity or a selfless leader who inspires greatness in theirranks, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, the Atom, and Green Lanternmust battle public contempt and personal mistrust as they attempt to worktogether to protect a world that fears them.
These two deeply thoughtful andprovocative stories look at not only what effect the absence of Superman wouldhave on Earth, but what his lack of being--or delayed coming of age--would meanthroughout the entire multiverse.
