    That to me sounds like JJJ and I think the creating a monster thing makes metropolis a little smaller when it's one source for several villains. They use Lex a lot for that but he's a more versatile...

    Yeah I wouldn't imagine anywhere you look on social media is going to be more a few percents optimistic or cautiously optimistic. The best case scenario will receive modest credit and poor profit....

    Thanks, I had to go back and still feel like there are some considerable villains I forgot. I only remembered Terra Man because you wrote about him recently

    Never heard of him. Anything you recommend?


    I look forward to after day one, when a lot of people who particularly care about Superman have gotten these sort of gut reactions outta the way. But...

    Eh, I don't care about the race. I sincerely don't. I don't have any issue with Latina Supergirl either, because I find the franchise suitable for that. Unfortunately they have to please a lot of...

    Eh, Cap and BP have some meandering. BP is really controversial for its sparing use of a good Tchalla.

    Regardless of their comics, which I mostly like from what I've read between them, I think...

    I've actually only seen like two episodes of Smallville so I'm bookmarking this, at the very least in case checking out this new show piques my interest in live action.

    Even though that's still...

    IMO not "mirrors" or some psychological/thematic pattern. People who like that about Batman or Spider-Man villains, as popular examples, will struggle to really appreciate Superman villains because...

    Wow the show is gonna have Killgrave? That's a surprising reference



    I joke about that being the Vin Jones or Rugby Brainiac, but the design isn't bad. I just love that Gene Ha take that much...

    Lol I thought this was gonna be a video of Jessica Alba as Sue.



    It should be pretty hard to impose those absolutes without knowing him at all. There could be a hundred reasons not involving...

    World of Metropolis is actually my favorite because it really features Clark in Metropolis instead of an origin for Superman.

    But Man and Superman, Birthright, For All Seasons, Secret Origin 1986...

    Also not trying to knock Vendetti... I feel like Waid is the guy who knows the comic character itself so well in and out that this assignment would be hollow for him. Like his first Superman work was...

    It's difficult to state what isn't already covered by Watters.

    I just want to see Jon as main character, not son of the main character. He's younger and his own man... basically the guy they...

    There was something that seemed to come about when I was becoming a regular reader like 2003 ish. After president Lex and OWAW, then Infinite Crisis where Superman never seemed to really recover.

    Blackrock was a whole separate thing.

    Apparently the Power stone was blown up in All Star Squadron, but I'm not a jsa fan.

    I'm way more into the Capcom one Robanker mentioned than any of the...

    That was a good quote, too.

    For all the visuals I love (like how that gritty Swanderson art rendered the bizarre in a plain style which makes it look even more absurd) the writing was pretty...

    There was something else on the "real" Superman before. If the "real" Superman was gone before Moore or Morrison, who was he, anyway?

    As much as I love the other writing from period, Stern and Ordway are my favorites. Ordway also draws one of the best IMO

    I didn't say anything about "good." I like all the titles you mentioned. I'm just saying it's a different sort of beast so the comparison to manga is too tricky. My point itself gets lost in the...

    There are a good half dozen creative teams who influence me as far as Superman goes, and my view of the character is basically a composite of those runs. But when I picture the character overall, I...

    You know Zod, Lex, and Brainiac don't actually mind getting physical when they are at an advantage. But a great Superman type that doesn't use any violence at all...

    1. None of those series are close to 80 years old and the oldest, Lupin, was both never as successful as Superman in virtually any metric and also not popular in a contemporary setting. Like Lupin...

    This sounds nice but what does it mean? Was it a copy years after creation, when Shuster wasn't drawing? Was it not really Superman decades after creation, when Siegel was writing in the same vein as...
