    Oh, I wouldn't worry for him.
    The type of backlash people like King or Bendis get counts nothing in the real world and it's just a minority in comparison to a large majority of readers who simply...

    Even if Metropolis has been a part of the Superman lore for decades, there aren't many stories which focus on the city itself (in most cases, a "Metropolis story" is a tale which focuses on the...

    I've never realized up to now how much the current Super-verse is different from the previous relaunches - the first ones which come to my mind are the Loeb/Kelly era and the New Krypton era. Those...

    To be fair, no. These days Berganza is pointed at as the one responsible for everything bad with Superman - mostly because he has been involved in some pretty nasty sexual harassment scandals and it...

    Heh, who knows. They are just rumors. At this point it is entirely possible that BOTH Levitz and Carlin nixed the idea for different reasons; the vacation rumor concerns Carlin, that's for sure,...

    Yep, that's my point - the "Waid being forbidden from writing Superman" incident I mentioned before happened after Birthright, not before it. Sorry for not being clearer.

    Yes, but Birthright was written in 2003-2004, years after the incident. So the Superman 2000 thing can't be the real reason - again, I always thought that it mainly depended on some personal argument...

    Well, I was one of those who were hopeful, to be fair. Yes, Snyder has his demerits, but probably they also chose the wrong source material (Earth One). Or maybe it was Goyer's fault. Or maybe they...
