    Read again. You are basically exactly the argument I gave. The rapist/mugger is a criminal- never said one thing to mitigate his crime. Said the "victim"has a part in what happened- which they...

    This is the logic, I despise. The offender can be wrong without the "victim" being right.

    If you get mugged because you are an idiot- then catch and punish the mugger, but you don't get a pass...

    They are comparable. I am saying that Superman killing someone else should bother him more than someone else killing the same person for the same reason.

    It's not about Zod being evil or good....

    1) I hate the whole "victim blaming" concept. It implies that people have no responsibility for their own actions. You go into a high crime neighborhood and walk down the street counting large...

    Superman killed Zod. Whatever the rightness or the wrongness of the killing is- Superman did it. I might feel bad if I saw a person hit by a car. I would hope I'd feel worse if I hit the person,...

    Worst: Superman #702 with it's preachy hit you over the head depiction of actual space aliens in a story about Superman walking across America. If they wanted to do a Superman dealing with real...

    Combine Pre-Crisis with the 1984 movie. The comics had Zor-El and Allura survive the destruction of Argo by using a last ditch variation on the Phantom Zone. The movie implied Argo was in some...

    At the end of the day DC and it's corporate owners are looking to make money. If they thought that making the Injustice Superman the main universe version, killing Superman off permanently or...

    Seeing as the current timeline has a single Superman, I don't expect any of us will get what we want. But I like the split Superman idea and with a few tweaks can see merit in the "man of action",...

    I think the problems are both the "little info" and the amount of time they put the information out ahead of time.

    Today: "DC to not have Superman and Lois as a couple"

    Six months of arguing...

    I'd say it had so much wasted potential.

    Morrison's run was one of the best Superman stories ever, but almost nothing was built off of it. Instead we got Perez' editorial clusterf***, Superman...

    1) Use Byrne's discarded idea of having a pregnant Lara sent to Earth and Superman being born after she arrives. The Kents, an older couple, would take her in and pass her off as a woman running...

    The Greatest American Hero crossing with Green Lantern & Green Arrow. Ollie Vs Bill Maxwell. The Old Timer comparing Hal (the Guardian's agent) with Ralph (another human agent of aliens). Pam and...

    It also helps that Hippolyta's actions aren't followed by Diana. I didn't mind Jonathan's attitude about Clark hiding his powers as much on Lois & Clark where Clark and Martha seemed to think it was...

    The problem with the post-Crisis Kryptonian language was that they used the symbols but the actual words were still English. It wasn't an alien language as much as a cypher. If you took it...

    I'd say his senses are more controllable than ours. In the same way you can focus on a single conversation in a restaurant, Clark normally is filtering out most of what he hears. So Black Canary...

    My take is that Superman is super,

    I like the idea of "The Science of Superman" but the book version (never saw the documentary) came at it from the wrong perspective for me. I prefer to start...

    Yes, but it was easier to accept the movie take (1st time it was a Kryptonian symbol) when the symbol comes before the name. I can buy the house crest for "El" looking like a stylized "S" a lot...

    I'd reluctantly give the nod to Rebirth

    For me the Invisible Mafia was Bendis' one good idea. The whole Unity Saga with nut-case Jor-El, revised Krypton death, aged up Jon, tone deaf Lois, and...

    I'm saying "classic" isn't the Fleischer cartoons or George Reeves or the DCAU or Donner. It's all of them and none of them at the same time. The "classic" Superman is somewhere between Morrison's...

    The problem is that something has to give.

    You can't please everyone. If Dan Didio's view of the DCU is at odds with a significant (say >10%) part of fandom then either he doesn't get to steer...

    A classic Superman shouldn't be something a person has. It's more of a consensus thing.

    The classic version is the one the majority of people have in mind when they think of the character.

    I'd love a total, no holds barred reboot. But short of that trying to reboot a single character or franchise is not a good idea. And in some cases is basically throwing out the baby with the bath...

    To me a defining quality of Superman is that he didn't need to be pushed into the role. There are times he might wish he wasn't so altruistic, but at his core he can't stand by and see injustice or...

    I'd agree if Batman's skills were actually earned. But when the idea is that Batman can outbox a guy who trains only as a boxer, outmaneuver a chessmaster who focuses only on that game, and is a...
