    Oh I got no issue with a Golden Age/Morrison/Truth level Superman. If that's what they run with, cool.

    But the idea that, despite the harsher environment of Krypton, Clark's "naturally" at human...

    Yes, he does, doesn't he!? I couldn't put my finger on it, but yes, this is exactly the same kind of brash confidence that borders on arrogance that Morrison brought back from the Golden Age. Man,...

    What? Come on man, that's hyperbolic! How often does Clark get de-powered, especially in the modern age? Once every couple years maybe? And you wanna compare that to his costume, that has remained...

    Too much competition; I'm far more invested in Doomsday Clock and Event Leviathan than I am this. We've also seen this exact same thing in the recent past with Forever Evil, and I've seen it at least...

    The new material would be the main selling point for me, since I can already buy old collections and trades. Also not interested in interviews, since I have the internet for that sort of thing (and...

    She's become a pretty big deal, yeah. She doesn't sell terribly well in floppies; the old guard comic fans seemed to look at her like an intruder, and her existence meant Carol couldn't return to the...

    Man, that was all so disappointing. When they announced Reis was doing the art I thought "Finally! DC is getting serious about making Vic an A-list hero! Reis isn't someone they put on C-list books...

    She doesn't have to be around 50 years, no, but if we're talking top-end, A++ levels, she needs a whole lot of everything; rogues, setting, love interest (she can maybe skip this part but it does...

    I think that a Kryptonian body, even without a drop of yellow sun, is well beyond our's. I kind of break it down like the Golden Age power levels (leap tall buildings, faster than a speeding bullet,...

    Because some idiots still think it's 1942 and women belong in the kitchen. And online, no one knows your real name so they feel like they can be as douche-y as they want to be.

    Comic fandom.....I...

    They definitely haven't capitalized on it like they should've. This upgrade should've made Vic one of the most powerful beings in the universe, but they haven't done much with it. As per usual, DC...

    Yeah, Marvel is very good at providing "empty calories" that give the appearance of health. It doesn't hurt that the MCU is doing so well either. Even though movie success means nothing for comic...

    Pardon me for jumping into the conversation here.

    I don't think time will be any different, if DC just does the same thing it's done in the past. The problem they run into is the direct market....

    Rich, Noh-Var, and Pylla-Vell? Okay Marvel, you have my attention.

    Written by Ewing? Oh, *now* we're talking!

    Not the solo Nova(s) title I want but Ewing is probably my favorite Marvel writer...

    Hell yeah! You smash that klan, Superman!

    I feel like I never root for Superman the way I root for Superman when he's fighting racist d-bags. It's one of my greatest joys in life.

    I dunno, I feel like we kinda dodged a bullet with that one. I'm not the biggest fan of the Forever People; they're my least favorite aspect of the Fourth World, but I feel like connecting Vic and...

    They still have that. It's just called eighth metal now, instead of Amazonium or whatever.

    Some pages back I talked about wanting to see Diana on a lower power level, but making up the difference...

    Because Amazonium or eighth metal or whatever we're calling it now isn't as common as wood and iron. And it's almost certainly much harder to work with, especially with larger pieces.

    Bendis.

    The New52 Superman title struggled from the beginning, and the best it managed to do was provide some interesting ideas with questionable (or downright bad) execution. Generally speaking,...

    Agreed. DC has made plenty of mistakes over the years when it comes to topics like this, and the entire industry struggles to find new fans. But people talk like DC doesn't try *anything* to fix...

    I'm pretty sure we can have both.

    We've got Mr. Terrific doing his crazy FF thing, and The Terrifics haven't really done a damn thing with the fact that Holt is black. And I don't recall the last...

    I agree that Naomi is too new to really belong in this poll, but give that girl some time. She could be the next big thing if DC doesn't screw it up.

    As for her being a Superman character.....no,...

    And that's a good point (one I brought up myself a page or two back). In group shots, it stands out in a bad way. But on his own, I don't think it's *that* much of a problem. Just looking at Jeff as...

    I think it's a bad name, honestly. Too unwieldy, too long. It's descriptive, and it stands out, but not necessarily in a good way.

    Since the Manhunter name is such a mess (how many have there...
