    1. The Metropolitan Man is an 80k-word novel following Lex Luthor as he realizes and then grapples with the threat Superman poses to the human race (now that I think about it, it is like Worm in this respect). I can't fault Luthor's analysis of the many risks of Superman or the ethics of his powers, and the plot develops well, finishing in an ending which however unexpected and abrupt is perfectly consistent with the plotter and thinker and careful preparer for all contingencies Luthor is shown as. [...]

    2. Good free audio version at methods of rationality. Same person who did the HPMOR-podcast.The story is ok. Like an average Stephen King, with the benefit that it is rational fiction.

    3. I wanted to like this, but to quote badly from HPMOR, If this is rationality, you should teach it to your enemies.

    4. An exciting book. It's easy to read and I didn't want to stop and read most if it in one day.The biggest problem I see in it is there is only one Player Character in it. Everyone else is NPC maybe with a little exception of Lois Lane. So the book is actually about the protagonist playing against force of nature that is Superman. Yeah, the force of nature is really strong and dagerous, but stupid, and Lex has almost unlimited resources. I find HPMoR to be a better rationalfic because there are mo [...]

    5. An interesting idea but terribly executed. This story is an accidental, amateur exploration of the minds of conspiracy theorists with a secondary, accidental, amateur commentary on how important communication is and how terrible human beings can be at it.The characterization is inconsistent, the plot is inconsistent, a good portion of this text reads like a list of the author's favorite trivia The premise (as described by a recommender) drew me in, but this story disappointed in every way, in to [...]

    6. This had a good premise and started out great. Especially if you like rational fiction or reimagining of stories with a rational character. The characters were not really interesting besides the main protagonist but weren't really bad either. (view spoiler)[But the whole story felt rushed. Especially the ending, while a very interesting turn of events, left me wanting a lot more. (hide spoiler)]So because there are very few rational fanfictions, I can recommend this with ease to anyone who likes [...]

    7. This is a good story. It is not only the best superman story I have ever heard or seen, it is one of the best stories I have ever read period.In this story, we follow a rational Lex Luthor back in the 30s, who after learning about superman, he decides to kill him because he poses an existential risk to humanity. The characters are all believable and incredibly well written and the prose is amazing.

    8. Remember Lex Luthor: Man of Steel? How about Irredeemable? If you do The Metropolitan Man will almost certainly catch your attention. But it's more than that. Whereas my rating for the Azzarello and Bermejo title is part approval for the premise (it doesn't so much reinvent Luthor as rationalise him) and part appreciation of the art, the same here is for the sustained exploration of that premise. In this sense Wales' take on Superman is more akin to What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the [...]

    9. The Metropolitan Man was written by Alexander Wales in 2014 and posted to fanfiction, it asks the question: what if Lex Luthor was right about Superman? The story follows Lex Luthor as the ‘villain protagonist’ in the year 1934 upon the arrival of an alien god, the Superman. Though the alien looks like a human, performs heroic acts, and asks for nothing in return, its powers represents an existential threat to humanity. Or so says Lex Luthor. Influenced by the Methods of Rationality, the Met [...]

    10. The Metropolitan Man by Alexander Wales continues the scheme of science fiction stories rewritten in a rational manner. The work is really good and properly rationalizes and explores all the elements of the original that we've had problems with - the god-like abilities of superman and it's consequences for the world at large, the lack of consideration for what a truly beneficial actions for humankind at large are like and humanity of clearly an alien specimen. The story is a quick and rewarding [...]

    11. I'm not a fan of Superman and the only other rationality fanfic I've read (Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality) left me cold.Despite this, I really enjoyed Wales' take on the story. Well written and researched. I Loise is an interesting, strong character. Lex Luthor is sociopathic but understandable, while Superman/Clark going from naive idealism (but completely pathologically flawed) to a resentment and disappointment.Very, very good. Recommended!

    12. The Metropolitan Man has an awesome view on Superman, more realistic. I actually was cheering for Lex Luther to win! Superman is scary, he is just some alien with all these powers that we can't match.Great read :)I'd suggest it to most people, thanks to my brother for convincing me to try it even after I didn't want to when hearing it's about Superman.Just read it, it's good.

    13. This was an interesting exercise to make sure that I am not losing my mind but instead that fiction I am reading lately is deeper than average. The Metropolitan Man is average. Straightforward. Shallow. Hell, there are only 3 non-NPC characters.Bonus star for mentioning (view spoiler)[the tangent-secant theorem (hide spoiler)].

    14. Really good rational tale focused around Lex Luthor. My only complaint was the ending which seemed to be a victory based on chance and Superman acting stupid. Outside of that it was very compelling, the characters were well developed and every piece of the plot was nicely written.

    15. Very interesting take on Superman as a potential threat to humanity. This reversal would make for an amazing movie that will never happened. If you enjoy stories about agency and competence, like The Martian or Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, you'll probably enjoy this one.

    16. Really enjoyed it. It did an excellent job of showing how creepy Superman's powers really are, and what an ethical minefield he represents.
