    Personally, I'd prefer a hard reboot and toss everything (or everything except Morrison's Action run). But I'm not sure a whole day-one approach would keep or attract readers, which is why I'd...

    To save Superman, you have to kill Superman.

    It sounds counter-intuitive, I know. And I'm not talking about yet one more retread of Doomsday where we have some big major event centered on...

    As a meta thing, I like it. DC Comics sort of all traces back to Action Comics #1 and Superman's debut. The idea that this is true fictionally as well makes some sense to me, but as others have said...

    Someone really needs to make a version of that with the last panel replaced with Batman's head actually being popped off ;)

    Gotta agree. Sometimes a change catches on.

    For the most part prior to Bendis when is the last time the Planet really mattered in Superman? It's not hard to imagine Superman losing Clark Kent...

    It could almost work by making it more complicated. Have the Mr. Oz version be the Jor-El with all the negative baggage (via time travel) and state that the original Jor-El who died with Lara (seen...

    Sure.

    I'd rather Batman was removed from Superman's orbit for awhile, so Superman could get some honest respect, but odds are if that was done some other character (Lois, Jon, Calvin Ellis, Diana...

    She does. She has combat and detective skills on a par with Batman. She is the Goddess of reporters.

    I dislike the idea that the character being thought of as a regular Joe. I can't accept the idea that the guy who hides more of his true self is considered the "real person". His true self flies,...

    I've said before this is all semantics. Whether he calls his true self "Clark", "Superman" or "Kal-El" isn't the point. Most people mean "Metropolis Clark" when they ask about whether he is really...

    My approach is to let Superman be as super as he wants but make the story something other than who hits harder.

    Superman has to get the Joker to reveal an antidote to a poison used on someone. ...

    I hate that scene with every fiber of my being.

    "Hey sorry about all the damage caused in my 5 minute fight with Metallo, but I figured it was better to just hold back and not put forth any real...

    Personally the problem isn't Superman, it's Deathstroke, Harley Quinn and the like. It's Wonder Woman or the Flash jobbing to the bad guys by bad writers.

    If Superman is that powerful, then...

    That "Silent Majority" idea is true in many cases, but since no one is polling readers, it is also an unprovable point.

    You can't look at a sales figure and decide that X% of the readers are luke...

    I'm more in the middle.

    I like Clark becoming a hero early on. The Golden Age take bothers me in that Clark has no real defining point where it makes sense for him to become Superman. He has...

    It always struck me the other way. Superman was more impressive for having this career that stretched through his entire life. The only other character that had that type of vibe was Dick Grayson. ...

    That is basically what I was suggesting. Jon being the son of Lois and Clark, but all of his Superboy life in the 21st century would have been in a vague "day after tomorrow" status where the...

    Take a decade off Clark & Lois' age, state Jon is their son but not one that has been born in the present time. Pre-Flashpoint status quo restored, but Jon is still with the Legion.

    I agree it's muddled.

    A lot of the Post-Crisis stuff had a largely un-super boyhood. Byrne gave us a Clark who had a few feats as a kid but was still able to think of himself as an exceptional...

    It's sort of like the 1960's Batman or Lois & Clark in quality. A lot of the plots are pure camp. and paper thin, but if you are in the right frame of mind it has it's moments.

    The last mini was just too zany for me. If the alien junior Legion of Doom never is referenced again, I can die happy.

    Also much as I hate Jon being aged up, it's done and I have no desire to see...

    I like the idea of moving the Bat-Family. But I'd split the difference on Batman.

    In the main DCU I remove Tim from history along with Bette Kane. Dick Grayson dies and Barbara goes back to being...

    One of my bits with intelligence has to do with how you get an answer to a question.

    Lex & Terrific get the answer more intuitively. They can go from "Problem A" to "Solution Z" without needing...

    Then putting the Legion's name in the title makes little sense.



    I found the concept hard to follow when Byrne did it in Generations 3 and that had a dozen issues. I find it worse crushed into...
