    It's not a deal breaker for me either way or anything, but I prefer a socially invisible Clark Kent. When he's the bumbling, clumsy oaf tripping over his own feet (like All-Star), or when he's the...

    I'd agree with this. I think Vic is, hands down, the most well known and popular black hero in larger media (for DC). He's been in larger media since the 80's era Super Friends (whatever it was...

    Diana's a queer icon apparently, so even though her bisexuality was only canonically established with Rucka's Rebirth run I'd say she wins. DC might have only recently admitted that Diana's not...

    It's hard to argue with Thawne, who has damaged Barry's life on virtually every level, and Manta, who killed Orin's son. Sinestro too has done a lot of damage over the years too, and his efforts have...

    I definitely expect to see some conversations/debates between Clark and Jon about how to "do" Superman. Jon's going to have his own ideas about things that Clark might not always agree with.

    I'm...

    That's as good an explanation as any.

    For myself, I prefer Superman to be big, with a lot of muscle mass, but not an overabundance of muscle definition. I like my Superman to look like a big...

    I'd watch it!!

    This feels basically like the Superman family thread so I'm going to approach this from the angle that Clark's not just facing a big villain or a team of bad guys, but is facing...

    It is the same as what we've had, and no it doesn't make any sense. It's just what I can see DC doing. They can say it's all one timeline while still having different, independent settings to play...

    Did someone just invoke the holy name of Mark Grayson?

    Yes! Someone did! All hail the mighty (and greatly missed) Invincible!

    And? It doesn't matter why Clark has been written this way. This is the way he's usually been characterized for eight decades across multiple versions and continuities and adaptations. Therefore,...

    True, but the religious elements are still there. But like me and JAK said, just because they're there doesn't mean you have to feed them.

    You got it all wrong actually. I used to think Clark would be a great father and I started out as a hardcore post-Crisis fan. That's the era I came up with, the Death-Return triangle era was my first...

    Oh, Smash is absolutely worth getting. If you like the Golden Age or the Fleischer cartoons it's a total, complete must-have story (so far anyway). Don't even wait for the trade, grab the single...

    The religion parallels are impossible to avoid; they're baked into the character from the ground up. His origin is just a cosmic version of Moses; his mission is just a cosmic version of jesus' and...

    Oh yeah, that's true! Sorry, been a good long time since I read those issues and forgot that detail.

    My point still stands (as you yourself went into) but I did forget that detail about Kara's...

    Not really. In Convergence we get to see Clark about to have a kid. L&C jumps forward ten years, and all the changes and adjustments Clark would have gone through as a father have already happened....

    Not the first time Didio has done/allowed stuff like this though. It's true he's not fond of legacy characters but he let Clark be replaced during New Krypton, Bruce has been replaced a couple times...

    DC's approach in the last few years seems to be a combination of pre-Crisis and post-Crisis. Even Tomasi, as heavy handed with the family stuff as he was, pulled from some concepts and traits we'd...

    :D My understanding of this character is built on many years of reading from all eras. I am thorough in my literary analysis.

    If I applied this much effort to school I'd have a 4.0 GPA. :p

    Yeah, that's how I felt in Rebirth when a guy who had spent almost a century struggling to connect to family was suddenly written, out of nowhere, as the perfect, flawless dad.



    Ah okay,...

    I think that's a fair reading of modern day post-52 Ollie. But looking at the earlier, post-Crisis Ollie I think Tzigone has the right of it. I'd say from at least Hard Traveling Heroes, if not...

    Well, what other Bendis books in recent years have sold that well just on his name recognition? Seriously asking, because I have no idea.

    Years back yeah, his name was enough to carry a book....

    I'm in total agreement here.

    Man, who ever thought that we'd be talking about a Bendis book and saying "it's moving too fast!"? :D

    But you're right, a lot of stuff has been rushed and I think...

    Yes he can sleep, and does dream. This was actually a talking point back in the....Dominus story, I think? Clark *can* sleep, but technically he doesn't *have* to. He can survive without it. But if...
