Set in the real world, SECRET IDENTITY examines the life of a young Kansas man with the unfortunate name of Clark Kent.All Clark wants is to be a writer, but his daily life is filled with the taunts and jibes of his peers, comparing him to that other Clark Kent — the one with super-powers. Until one day when Clark awakens to discover that he can fly...that he does in fact have super-strength! But where did these powers come from? And what's he going to do about it?

Baker & Taylor
When Clark Kent suddenly finds that he has powers like those of his fictional namesake, he attempts to perform humanitarian superfeats while keeping his identity secret, but government agents discover who he is.

Wow.

Such an amazing reading experience, more than anything for Father's Day as themes of family, mortality and legacy give an unexpected heft to the later chapters.

This is a big recommendation, if not a must-read, for anyone who liked Superman for All Seasons, Absolute All-Star Superman, and similar material. It may be light on the superheroics, but it more than makes up for it by means of its (super)humanity.
