Superman: Earth One is a 2010 graphic novel from DC written by J. Michael Straczynski and illustrated by Shane Davis. It is the first installment of DC's "Earth One" line, an Ultimate Universe of sorts where the DC Universe's most iconic characters are re-imagined for the modern era.

The story focuses on a 21 year old Clark Kent that moves to the big city of Metropolis per the advice of Ma Kent in order to basically "find himself" and do something with his life. A little more sullen and moody this time around, Clark soon discovers that, when a strange evil rears its head, that he's destined to become something much greater than he realizes, even if he doesn't want it at first.

A second volume to the Superman: Earth One series is currently scheduled for a November 2012 release, over two years after the original graphic novel came out. As a preview, DC currently has two page captures posted to their Facebook page, but no details about the plot have yet been revealed.
