Everything is perfect for Superman. He has a loving wife, a son he loves more than anything in the world and he’s once again Earth’s greatest hero. But there’s still one piece of the puzzle that doesn’t quite fit: Who is the man who’s calling himself Clark Kent…who as far as anyone can tell is Clark Kent?
Finally, it’s time for the mystery to be solved. Whoever the fake Clark is, his identity is starting to unravel…and with it, so is Superman’s reality. The life he shared with Lois is disappearing before his eyes, including the most precious thing of all—their son, Jon.
Now, to save his son, Superman must face one of his deadliest enemies and discover a secret with grave implications for the entire DC Universe: not just who Clark Kent is, but who Superman himself truly is.

Ok, so I caved and got the hardcover so I could put the individual issues away and stop handling them.
STOP READING NOW TO AVOID SPOILERS!
In this story arc we finally discover the doppelganger Clark Kent is really Mr. Mxyzptlk. It is also revealed that the current Superman and Lois Lane, along with their deceased New 52 counterparts are actually the same people. That they more or less had their essences split in two by a much greater power. This story combines the histories of the Pre-Flashpoint and New 52 universes into one solidifed story for the Man of Steel and his family.
I really love that Jon (Superboy) is the one who saves the day. Also happy to see my favorite fifth dimensional imp return. I've always enjoyed the chaos that Mxy stirs up. Artwork was phenomenal. Jurgens and Tomasi's writing flows as one awesome story. Superman and Action Comics are two titles that I will not stop following. They are amongst my favorite Rebirth titles right now.
