That kinda works, although I'd be perfectly fine with just Man of Steel II.

I'm so over this need by the studios to give every sequel a different title. Everyone already realizes it's a sequel; you're not fooling anybody! Lol
*cough*Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, The Enforcer, Sudden Impact, The Dead Pool *cough* Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained *cough*The Pink Panther, A Shot in the Dark, Inspector Clouseau, The Return of the Pink Panther, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, Revenge of the Pink Panther, Trail of the Pink Panther, Curse of the Pink Panther, Son of the Pink Panther *COUGH!* A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly *Cough* this ain't new *cough cough!!*
Or perhaps . . .

Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, License to Kill, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall . . . .

Seriously, the numbered sequel thing is a relatively new trend that caught on in the eighties or so. Before then, sequels had actual titles: Bride of Frankenstein, Tarzan's New York Adventure, Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe, Taste the Blood of Dracula, Godzilla vs. the Thing, etc.
Exactly. It wasn't until around the time films like Godfather Part 2 came around that numbered sequels started popping up more and more.

Also... Oh my Gosh! Greg Cox!!! I know you probably hear this all the time, but I love your Khan and Q Continuum novels.
