I came up with the idea for this story when Superman Returns (2006) hit theatres. This film was so bad that I had to create my own story. I was (am) an avid fan of DC comics, the Superman franchise and the CW hit television show Smallville (staring Tom Welling).

My book, Element of Surprise, does take ideas from all of the above and wraps them all neatly in my own original plot.

What makes my story different and original is a brand new spin on things. For the first time, fans get to enter this world through the eyes and mind of Lex Luthor as he tells the story. The entire story is taken from his POV.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:

All characters (names & places) are originally the creation of DC Comics and Warner Bros. Studios.  Superman/Clark Kent was from the creation of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

In Chapter Ten: Revivify, Martha Kent quote "Every world needs its heroes, Clark. They inspire us to be better than we are.  And they protect us from the darkness that's just around the corner" is taken directly from the WB television show 'Smallville' season six.  Other quotes that may be similar to previous works are not taken directly and added for humor.

The Element of Surprise and main plot are all original from the author,                 - Holas Riordan

Dedication:

I dedicate this book (the first novel I ever completed) to my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. DiMeo, who counted me out, who stopped teaching me, who failed to inspire me, who did her very best to keep me back and keep me down. She failed to fail me!
