Overview

After the devastating events of WAR OF THE SUPERMEN, Superman looks to reconnect with the roots of his battle for Truth, Justice and the American Way. "Grounded" begins as Superman visits Philadelphia - on foot - then continues in a small town in Ohio where, as in many towns, a number of its residents are from other places. But when The Man of Steel discovers that there are also a number of residents secretly from other worlds, he unravels a mystery that may have grave consequences for Earth.
Superman meets the new Wonder Woman for the first time! But why can't he shake the feeling that he already knows her? The Man of Steel will have to figure that out later, as the two heroes have their hands full defending Omaha, Nebraska from the evil Keres, a supernatural force determined to rid the town (and the world!) of all Amazons - and they're not too crazy about Kryptonians, either.

A fairly interesting storyline in which Superman is beset by self-doubt after the destruction of New Krypton and the death of Pa Kent. For a time this is magnified in him and spread to another human by a Kryptonian artifact. The first story, in which Superman uncharacteristically orders Lois to kill a story exposing a company's pollution because it would shut down the company and destroy the town's economy, was a bit of a shocker. Later it became apparent that the Kryptonian sunstone was partly to blame. An interesting story that explores some of the ideas behind Superman's self-doubt, and they are too rarely debated in a series about a nearly all-powerful being. But I've seen it done better.
