[New to DCU] Superman Rebirth Phase 1 MEDIUM Reading Order

This is the medium reading order for Phase 1 of Superman Rebirth. This is focused on only the MOST important Superman Volumes. Superman Rebirth is mainly focused on three plot lines. 1. Who is Mr. Oz? 2. Jonathan Kent (Superboy) meeting the world. 3. Superman’s relationship to the current continuity. This Superman is a new Superman who lived in the multiverse before Flashpoint wiped away the modern era.

Stories not include: Kenan Kong and the Justice League of China’s birth, A lonely place of living, Supergirl’s run, Superwoman, and Trinity.

Difference between Easy and Medium: Adds the missing Superman (2016) stories: Multiplicity, Black Dawn, and Superman: Hopes and Fears. Supersons titles are added: When I grow up, Planet of the Capes, Super Sons of Tomorrow, and Parent Trap. Action Comics: Men of Steel is added as well.
