Summary
"When invader probes bombard our world, Superman journeys into the deepest reaches of space to confront his old foe. But the Brainiac he encounters is unlike any he's faced before. Aboard his massive ship, the one true Brainiac hoards wonders and horrors in equal measure. Only one treasure eludes him. Setting his sights on Superman, Brainiac will do anything to ensure that the Last Son of Krypton is his alone. Supergirl. Metropolis. Earth. Everything under Superman's protection is no longer safe. Although the Man of Steel is faster than a speeding bullet, even he won't be able to save everyone--" -- dust jacket

Review
Gr 9 Up –Facing off once again with his old foe Brainiac, Superman is shocked to learn that the coldly logical supervillain was responsible for the disappearance of both an entire Kryptonian city and the death of hundreds of Kryptonians. When Brainiac turns his sights to Earth and adds the city of Metropolis to his collection of miniaturized specimens, the Man of Steel must confront a far more powerful and cruel opponent than he ever dreamed of, and Supergirl must overcome her own misgivings about her power in order to stop Brainiac’s robotic minions from destroying the Earth. This somewhat standard tale of Superman confronting an evil alien bent on destroying the world is enlightened by realistic characters and dialogue as well as some heartrending displays of emotion. With a fair amount of graphic violence, this is a somewhat darker Superman than some audiences may be comfortable with; that said, the plot is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The artwork is excellent, with wonderful use of color. A fine general choice for collections in need of solid superhero titles.–Dave Inabnitt, Brooklyn Public Library, NY --Dave Inabnitt (Reviewed January 1, 2010) (School Library Journal, vol 56, issue 1, p131)
