What's in a name? Everything, if you share it with the Man of Steel! Superman: Secret Identity collects the critically lauded miniseries written by Kurt Busiek (JLA/Avengers, Astro City) with stellar art by Stuart Immonen (Superman: End of the Century, Thor). 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 superpowers. 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? This volume collects issues numbered 1-4 of the critically acclaimed miniseries.
