    I just don’t find the regular people in Clarks life that interesting. I like the Daily Planet and I like Smallville but I much prefer reading about Superboy and the Legion or Superman and the League....

    One I go back to all the time is Hyperion from the original Squadron Supreme series by Mark Gruenwald. It barely predates Watchmen and Dark Knight, but it deserves its spot next to those classics. In...

    He is the only comics creator I have ever met. I showed up early to a comic signing he was featured at. I tried to take a picture of myself with him in the background. He saw me and called me over,...

    Check Ned Beatty out in Network he could have been a great Lex Luthor.

    I like the idea that Superman is always moving on. When he was a baby he left Krypton, as a teen he leaves Smallville, as an adult, someday I imagine he leaves Metropolis and Earth. Thats probably...

    There is something about the lines on his face when Gary Cooper is serious or smiles that reminds me of Golden Age Superman, but I definitely see that boxy look that John Garfield has. I am going to...

    That makes sense Gary Cooper might be too goofy to be like Golden Age Superman but there is something here and there where he looks like Superman to me.

    I was picking up DC Comics and Firestorm at the drugstore and off the spinner. I remember being excited when Firestorm number one came out. The covers were great, he fought Killer Frost and a...

    It's not my favorite era of Superman but it's not because of the character of Superman. Being an old guy, I enjoy movies from that time period and at times those comics read like an attempt to...

    Famous First Editions, those books showed me that Golden Age Comics were just as good as new comics, which are now old. The original origin of Captain Marvel, The Flash, and even the back ups, they...

    For me it’s not just raw power and I do think that list has enough of it, for me it’s like Lex Luthor, Batman could be Lex Luthor in another universe. Green Lantern, if you think about it, couldn’t...

    I don’t mind Superman losing, Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Supergirl, The New Gods, all those heroes can and have had their day with Superman. That’s fair to me,...

    I disagree with the one signature power idea because it’s out of character for Superman and it doesn’t apply anywhere else. Is the Vision less intangible than Kitty Pryde? Is Detective Chimp a better...

    The reason they give him the weaknesses argues my point. The weaknesses make him beatable. In order for the stories to work, and for those special weaknesses to matter, he has to be an impossibility...

    Sure! I was thinking how Superman sometimes is thought of as being the strongest, but that means he shouldn’t also be able to outsmart Batman or out swim Aquaman, which I suggest he could. It’s like...

    Super Strength is a double edged sword for Superman. It reduces him to the Cosmos’s greatest weight lifter. It has boxed him in so that it feels “unfair” if he is too fast, too smart, or too skilled.

    Maybe I am using that word wrong. I thought it meant to an endless degree but it might mean nothing, so the opposite of that.

    I looked it up!

    I like Superman to have all the powers to the Nth degree. And it's really not all the powers. It's just the five senses amped up to who knows where. Its not about if Superman can do something, its...

    I haven't finished the show, but the comic is must read as is Jupiters Circle. The beards and the makeup bother me. I think its second tier to Invincible and the Boys though I like the comic far more...
