5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant portrayal of a superhero in the "real" world 7. August 2002
Von Bob Quasit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
In "MiracleMan" (UK vt. "MarvelMan") Alan Moore places a classic superhero type in the "real" world - a world very much like this one, in which people who see a man in tights are not going to think "super".
During a terrorist hijacking at a nuclear plant news photographer Michael Moran suffers a debilitating headache and mutters a word he sees from the wrong side of a glass door. And is transformed.
But people don't know what to make of a man who is invulnerable and can fly, and that includes Moran's wife. She asks why she'd never heard of MiracleMan and his now-remembered superfriends, and he has no answer. And the truth of the matter is world-shaking, literally.
This is just an outstanding book. The series hit a very dark spot in a later volume, one which I found personally distasteful, and it seemed to lose its focus by the time Neil Gaiman took it over; unfortunately it was never finished. Nonetheless, an excellent and enduring deconstruction of the idea of the superhero.
I'd recommend Moore's "V for Vendetta" to those who like this book.
One point: the graphic novel edition (the one that I have anyway), is missing several pages which were included at the beginning of the original comic. The comic began with a deliberately cheesy Captain Marvel-style story about time travel, but suddenly froze at the end of the story and zoomed in on MiracleMan's face, panel by panel. "Behold I teach you the superman: he is this lightning, he is this madness!" -Nietzsche, "Thus Spoke Zarathustra". The next page was the beginning of the graphic novel, with a far more realistic art and writing style. A very effective demonstration of what Moore planned to do to the cliches of the superhero genre. I don't know why it was eliminated.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SHAZA--I mean, KIMOTA!!! 8. November 2001
Von JR Pinto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
There is a weird feeling you get, reading Alan Moore's Miracleman stories-the feeling that you're not reading a comic book. The story takes place in the real world-not the comic book universe. As the story opens, we find middle-aged Mike Moran being haunted by dreams of flying. During a terrorist raid, he is taken hostage and suddenly remembers his magic word and becomes a super-hero again. Having forgotten his past for twenty years, it all comes flooding back to him: which presents him with his biggest problem-how to explain things to the misses! As he does, she (famously) begins to laugh at him! The inconsistencies of his super-hero past begin to become apparent to him. Of course something is wrong here. Just what that something is, and how Alan Moore explains it are left for you to be seen.
Of course Miracleman (Marvelman in England) is the British version of Captain Marvel. In reincarnating him, Alan Moore (as is his want) completely reinvents him for a new age. Miracleman is `aufgehobened' for a new era. For me, the best superhero comics like this, The Watchmen, and Marvels, try to portray their larger-than-life heroes as realistically as possible and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, put them in the real world, populated by real people, with real consequences for their actions. In Mike Moran's universe, Superman is well-known...as a comic book character. When Miracleman bursts onto the scene (literally) we imagine what it would be like if a super-hero really appeared in our world. But then, the adventure begins...

5.0 von 5 Sternen This isn't your father's Superman... 3. Mai 2000
Von Brandon B. Alspaugh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
There's a hint of disdain in Moore's Marvelman (renamed Miracleman for distribution in the US, for obvious reasons) for virtually every aspect of the comic "super hero". His response? Laugh a bit, have his fun, and then go on to analyze what a super hero would REALLY mean to our world.
His hero isn't some rock-jawed alien or identity disassociative with a predilection for flying rodents. He's a normal person, and Moore doesn't forget this for a second; when Moran, or Miracleman, is being laughed at by his wife (obviously the voice of Moore in this instance) as he describes his absurd past as a superhero, he shatters a table in frustration.
This book, along with it successive volumes The Red King Syndrome and Olympus, are Moore's legacy to the world of the super hero. Neil Gaiman ties up the package nicely with The Golden Age. In the end, you're left with a lot more questions than answers...but then, that's the point, now isn't it?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wait For The Marvel Omnibus 19. August 2009
Von W. Rosen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Marvel Comics now owns the rights to this character as of 2009 so expect to see an omnibus edition containing the entire series. If you can wait a year or so you'll save a small fortune over the individual issues and graphic novel collections. Who knows we may even see new material from Gaiman and/or Moore.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "You're laughing at my life!" 30. Mai 2005
Von Sam Thursday - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
From its opening sequence, Alan Moore's Miracleman grabs the reader by the throat and doesn't let go. By turns a spy thriller and a superhero graphic novel, "A Dream of Flying" manages to transcend the grubbiness of the medium it occupies and turn the tired Superman archetype on its ear for a truly terrific story. There's moral ambiguity aplenty in Miracleman's world, and he solves it in ways that a more "real" Superman probably would if he was more of a true character and less of a franchise. Moore has some fascinating things to say about the apotheosis of his hero and this is the beginning of that story. In most of his work, Moore exhibits an obsession with taking his characters to their logical conclusions and Miracleman is no exception - imagine a sort of "last days of Superman" book and you'll have the idea pretty clearly. The next two books are even better, believe it or not, and Neil Gaiman's short stories in book four are better still. This is certainly the coolest and the smartest of the superhero re-imaginings of the eighties, and though it's more influential than is healthy, it's still a great read.
