Superman is missing, leaving the city of Metropolis without a hero. But wait look up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Mr. Majestic?!? The hero of the WildStorm Universe somehow finds himself in the DC Universe, and even with his brilliant mind he isn't quite sure how he got here or how to get back home. Can Lord Majestros of Khera hope to fill the shoes of the Man of Steel? Does he even care to? This Strange New Visitor is set to save humanity his own unique way, whether other heroes like itor not. And with the Eradicator hot on his trail, Majestic must find his way back to his own universe!

Grade 7 Up–Abnett tells of a superhero thrown to Earth by a time storm. It so happens that Superman has been taken away by this very storm, and so most citizens assume Majestic is simply Superman in a new costume. Lois Lane, Clark Kent's wife, knows better. Hence some amusing scenes of mistaken identity, such as when Lois and Majestic meet and he tells her that she smells. Everything is too different for him, apparently. Later, Superman finds out that Majestic beat up the Green Lantern and is actually a morally ambivalent being, although he does get rid of the time storm. He moves into a single woman's house and of course her young son sees right through his ridiculous cover story. The time line jumps around but the scenes of superhero/average citizen interaction are entertaining. Entertaining enough to merit a purchase? Maybe.–John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
