Editorial Reviews

Review

"Roger Stern has taken his years of [writing experience] and used that skill to show the human side of these heroes. I've been reading stories of these characters--Superman, Batman, The Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern--as far back as I can remember, but never before do I recall seeing such humanity from them. I don't mean [just] a great caring for the human race, we know they have that, but Roger Stern has made them people." -- C. Dennis Moore

"Superman is written very well and we get to see the human element of him as much as, if not more than, the super-hero aspect. As such there are wonderful exchanges between Kal-El and his human parents, as well as with Lois and Bruce Wayne. This really added a depth to the book and raised the story to beyond the regular fare of good versus evil." -- BookMarc

"This story, somehow, makes you feel POSITIVE as you read it, like some of Superman's inherent goodness is permeating your body. Also, Stern doesn't forget to treat the League like they're people. It's the little things that make this novel work. Superman's vast cast do superbly as well. Lois is, of course, always entertaining when written well. At the Daily Planet, the only thing missing was Perry telling Jimmy to not call him Chief. Bibbo's public challenge ... is an absolute hoot." -- Aaron Thall 

About the Author

"In his long career ... Roger Stern has written some of comics' greatest characters in some of their biggest moments. He wrote the epic Avengers Under Siege story where the Masters of Evil assaulted Avengers mansion. In his Captain America run, he pitted the Sentinel of Liberty against the vampiric Baron Blood for a thrilling and powerful story. He was also one of the writers who helped kill comics' greatest icon in 'The Death of Superman' storyline. [In 2005, Stern returned] to write another big moment for the Man of Steel, his first original novel in many years, "Superman: The Never-Ending Battle," a 384-page novel in Pocket Books  Justice League series." -- Dave Richards, Comic Book Resources

Part of the JLA series. This is how you do one of these. Give Mr. Stern a shot at a few more. Heroic heroes, some interesting characterisations, and your top line super villain. A really sweet ending, too.

It was a compelling read. Only a rudimentary knowledge of the characters was required before starting the book, as they were fully described by the author.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
overall i was pleased with the book. i like how the novel isnt just about superman but all of the major JLA characters and even some minor ones like The Atom. i think the characters stayed true to there characterization. superman is and always will be the nicest most polite person in the world. the only problem i had with the book is the plot. specificly the bad guy. i dont want t o give it away but it turns out to be a normal man, not Dark seid or doomsday or lex luthor...just a regular villian human varity. i think superman was overkill for the baddy. Batman could have handeld the entire situation. the only thing superman and the other superpowered people int he JLA were good for was stoping the "natural Disasters" which in my opinion is unrealistic. i dont think there was any inocent loss of life which...come on. whatever. i read Stone King liked it, i read Stop motion liked it, i read Exterminators i really like it and now Never ending battle is good too. next i will read Green Lanterns Hero's quest. i know im reading them out of order but its like there a series. maybe i will pick up Wonder Womans book but its not looking good. and by the way... Where is the Martian Manhunters novel!!!

I greatly enjoyed this story, just as I'd expected to - the writer, Roger Stern, is a gifted author with many previous home runs in superhero fiction. (click on the Amazon link to his name to see what I mean) How can this not turn into a movie?

Finally a justice league story that holds its own. Roger Stern and Alan Grant who wrote Batman:The Stone King are the only writers of the Justice League series whose stories I really enjoyed. Both have a lot action and a real plot. Superman: The

Never Ending Battle shows a side of Superman that I've known was always a part of him. Thank you for writing a real story about a

hero who Christopher Reeve protrayed in the movies who will always be a part of my life and many life's to come.
