SUPERMAN #709 provides an exhilarating new twist on the classic question of who’s faster: Superman or Flash? Who will outrun the other and what the heck is that thing on Flash’s head that’s making him speak Kryptonian and recite the planet’s history? Written by J. Michael Straczynski and Chris Roberson, with artwork by Eddy Barrows & J.P. Mayer and a cover by John Cassaday, SUPERMAN #709 continues the Man of Steel’s “Grounded” storyline -- this time bringing Superman to the vast landscapes of Boulder, Colorado.

The "Grounded" storyline continues right here as Superman visits Mt. Prospect - a suburb just southeast of Chicago. In this issue, Superman discovers that there is a darkness even more immense than outer space... One buried deep inside the human heart. The first of the "Grounded" letter write-in destinations, this town was suggested by Annette Kowalczyk of Mt. Prospect, Illinois. Annette has lived in Mt. Prospect for 43 years, raising her three children (and now seven grandchildren) in the area. Thanks for being a Superman fan all these years!
