**** (out of five)

A 12-issue run on Superman obviously wasn’t enough time in Metropolis for Brian Azzarello.
The award-winning writer of 100 Bullets, fresh off his collaboration with lauded artist Jim Lee on the flagship Superman title, takes a hard look at the complex nature of the Man Of Steel’s greatest enemy in this five-issue limited series.
Obsessed with Superman’s alien background and his rise to fame in the city which Luthor virtually ruled before his arrival, Luthor, in the course of a regular night at the office, begins unleashing a plot that will rid him of what he describes as his “nightmare.”
Featuring some sublime art by Lee Bermejo, this series could be one of the sleeper hits of 2005.
