    Departure

    It is a blast to watch but it does play out differently from the comic by quite a bit. There are no other heroes involved in the story and the return of Superman story is also fairly different. There is only a clone instead of the 4 Superman replacements in the comic. Great for what it is though - the battle against Doomsday is epic and I like the final blow alot better than what they had in the comic.
