I'm hoping you explore this some more; it kind of suggests to me the

I like the pride Superman 1 is taking in his adopted son. I'm just
wondering if he is concerned at all that the Superman below is

Very good story! There's a lot of threads woven into this tapestry,
and every time I re-read it, I discover something I missed. There is
a 'fractal' quality about it (if I may); there are neat sub-plots at
many different levels and it is interesting and well thought out at
each of those levels.
