I can't say if it sticks to the comics because I haven't read them, but I thought it was a great blockbuster. Superman Returns was more comic booky while Man of Steel is more real life, a la the new Batman Trilogy. I was thoroughly entertained and I can't wait for the next one.
I was sucked in to this flick, it had my undivided attention. I really hope J.J. Abrams makes a third one. After all, they have to bring Khan back! Although I'm not sure why they didn't just kill him after they got the blood to revive Kirk, probably just to have another film
