    Eh soft hands and a well fitting suit hit pretty much everything that the glasses and hair don't. Whether he's like Reeve or thicker (I tend to imagine Superman built like Luke Rockhold), it kinda...
  2. Reality says otherwise but I just can't believe...

    Reality says otherwise but I just can't believe that in 80 years of data to mine they haven't figured out how to knock out a great Superman game. There are so many technically smart people in...

    The Rocketeer is a period piece short story character in the vein of a serial though. The film pretty much fit in everything Stevens put down and all these IDW sequels are squeezing the same lemon....

    I have to third the notion that Superman's design is that of a serial character. I guess you can call it complexity but I think you just need a deep, involved story to show enough of him.

    Being bald is just such a key visual.



    The interesting thing about the "brain vs brawn" situation is that a battle of wits, to Lex, is a concession of Superman's mental challenge. Luthor's...

    Well said. Within 30 years Peter had decent progress, but a huge chunk happened so quickly, within the first 50 issues or so. It's not crazy that by twenty five years, he had been with MJ long enough...

    An underrated aspect of Superman to me is his pulp age ability to network with the extra normal. The idea that Superman can employ assistance from Susie Tompkins, Captain Strong, SCU, Jimmy Olsen,...

    Thanks for your point on continued relevance Yoda. There's a narrative that there's somehow a downward trend that actually ties to the marriage and I don't see it holding true. I think in some sense...

    There's a flipside to the Marvel vs D.C. continuity argument: that the single continuity means the stakes are actually lower in some ways. By the time characters like Iris and Kara died DC had...

    I like the jumpsuit in that it avoids the Iron Man comparisons. But physically dominating Superman should be a "by any means" thing.

    The spider marriage. Conway said no here and became a main contributor to that one. I like the idea of Peter growing up and not being some punchline, and doing those sort of things... but when he's...

    JRJR and Simonson are probably some of the last high profile artists who use their own style instead of hitting the scale between photorealistic and anime. I think Year One #3 was a real high point...

    Ugh I feel like I just witnessed the unveiling of a new type of raspberry cake. It tempts me to go and get the first cheung variant to match up.
  14. That's assuming all there would be is "danger"...

    That's assuming all there would be is "danger" though. The difference between Lois being a married friend to Superman and the wife of Superman is pretty big if we're talking about the quality of life.

    In fairness Kon was a clone created without his knowledge or consent, in the middle of being dead just before his marriage and transformation, and Superman had to take time out to become family in...

    If you try to pin the Bendis character to one era it falls apart pretty quickly. I feel a little lapsed myself with all this but I can say Bendis has improved with nuance and character dialogue so...

    Yeah, in the early bronze age (and probably earlier) that's basically how it was described to the letter. That state of unrest is problematic outside of physical fatigue.

    Netflix probably could go for a comic adaptation that would hit the same demographic as most popular DC animations. If you give ten people ten stories about Superman, they'll probably hit the same...

    I think that even holds true for Batman though. They don't really get action stars so much as guys who look natural wearing a turtleneck, so he always kinda gets beat up and goes to some other...

    1. Action Comics vol 2, #0-18: Morrison had no fill in writers in an all new continuity away from Berganza and the obligation to other stories. He'd have had to try to rank lower, really. A clever...

    I was going with a definition of cynical as being able to understand and write characters motivated by self interest. Being able to do a jaded take on morality. Not specifically optimistic as his bad...

    Um, right... well Oda doing Superman would be neat in that as the least cynical guy in comics he would spread casualties like seven years apart.

    I can see it if someone is talking about the sentiments and sometimes what seems like direct reference, even if as parody or subversion. I know it's not the topic focus but it really is a strong...

    I don't think there's a whole type of people who shouldn't write a character, but defensive writing for Superman is one of my least favorite things. If a depiction boils down to "nuh uh he's cool...
