    Depends how you use the idea. Final crisis and Red son both used it well.
    Superman is the blueprint of the Super-hero. For better or worse he has informed every Super hero character after him and...

    Plot twist. Lex Luthor is half Olsen. That's why he has red hair, he shaves his head out of shame for his heritage and not because of male pattern baldness.

    Dan is one of the men responsible for the best single status quo in the 90s which expanded the mythos and the cast with reign of supermen. Red and blue is something that just doesn't last, you see...

    It does resonate with the dirty politics, super powers shaping the future of weaker countries with close door deals.

    But you are right the original origin is both topical and elegant. No argument...

    I can see that what was done with Krypton and mainly jor El isn't something easy to digest. But it's not without merit.

    Jor El and Lara were always barely characters. And jor El being in a cult...

    Earth 1 being stealthy rebooted is enough to buy this book alone ��

    Best issue so far.

    Bendis is shaping up being one of the most ambitious and forward thinking Superman writers of the last two decades.

    Real stakes, new ideas, expansion of old ones.

    I can...

    Because the Dark Knight name sells more. WAAAAAYYY more. And it makes pretty clear which world this takes place in.

    Mid 20s is the range the Superman comic sells, 30s for action. Thats just Superman's casual numbers. That being said, July was a heavy new number 1 month,yet Superman held steady.

    Age sure plays a role. But I think it's mostly Bendis attracting a more ''modern'' audience. Modern in terms of comics consumed and how they consume them.
    He definitely won the younger crowd with...

    They are expendable. Like the original squad. If they were a list villains, killing them off would be difficult.
    Making them characters you would care about will be a challenge. But that's the...

    I hope they really imbrace the macabre near-sadistic concept of the Squad. The whole point of the book is that your protagonists might die an unexpected death at any moment. It's a thriller. ...

    Honestly it's a great idea.

    Its risky, it's interesting, it has unique stakes and it's something that could only be done with Superman for maximum effect.

    I love that Bendis writes stories that...

    Superman as the leader of the UP, Jon with the Legion, and Zod as a supporting character is better than having the bottle city of kandor and not using it.

    Dark knight returns is a pioneering book and a contender for best graphic novels of all time due to its quality and influence. Comparing this to TDK is unfair.

    Gotham limits him a lot as a character. In the Bat verse he is mostly used as the first protégé than can never replace or be on equal ground as his mentor. He just has no more room to grow there as a...

    This moment I am sure will be controversial. I am a bit hesitant of it but it doesn't make or break the storyline for me.

    It definitely helps Jon's character. He never had a defining moment. Jon...
