  1. No. All the other Kryptonians are either less...

    No. All the other Kryptonians are either less powerful than Superman so it still shows his restraint as he is still more powerful than a lot of other Kryptonians but he doesn't show it or they are...

    I think it would really depend on what Marvel writers would have been given the Charlton properties and what they would have done with them. I am not sure if Marvel's writers were noticeably better...

    Hard pass. If there is one writer I don't want on one of my favourite characters it is Tom King. Thankfully it is a limited series.

    I guess the runs that are more focused on more specific demographics are more of your thing then. There have been more of those sorts of books being put out over the past decade. Although the X-Men...
  5. I would argue that work better as there is now...

    I would argue that work better as there is now the general metaphor of the X-Men that represents all groups that face prejudice and comics that focus on more specific demographics. IMO both are valid...
  6. A lot of them are or have powers that are coded...

    A lot of them are or have powers that are coded to represent it (like mutants with abilities that change their physical appearance in some way).
  7. A character being white doesn't preclude them...

    A character being white doesn't preclude them from representing someone who faces prejudice LGBT+ people, women, people with disabilities and people of certain religions (like Judaism) face prejudice...

    I don't really agree with this, I think the X-Men has done a good job of trying to represent multiple groups of people and focussing on them.
  9. These sort of people will whine anyway as a lot...

    These sort of people will whine anyway as a lot of the time, they hold the bigoted views that that X-Men are challanging. The X-Men books are specific in the sense that they will talk about and fight...

    The "i have sent you to save these people"...

    The "i have sent you to save these people" speeches rarely come up in Superman stories and are way less of a reason for why Superman does good than just doing good.

    Yes, all those heroes know that...

    I canít say I agree. Itís not like every comic ends with a 80ís cartoon style ďwhat have we learnedĒ section where Superman explains to Metallo and the reader why robbing banks is wrong.

    No, he doesn't, he rarely gives speeches like that in the comics. The fundamental point you are missing is when it comes to crime fighting Superman does just do it, he goes out and fights crime and...

    Because Superman doesn't go around giving speeches like this all the time, his paragonness mostly comes from leading by example and fighting crime and evil. And because many fans don't see him being...

    OK, you prefer it. That doesn't change my point that while you find the character " bland as heck" many people don't see it that way and find Superman, his powers and his world exiting. I honestly...

    It might not work for you but for a lot of fans the SciFi elements made for a lot of good stories and the SciFi elements that have been added to the character are a vital part of the Superman Mythos...

    Superman was originally not a "sci-fi hero" but he became one (especially in the Silver Age) and that is now as much a part of the character as his Zorro, Gladiator, Strongman origins.

    The great thing about Image is all the properties are creator-owned and the creators get a say in how their properties are used, so this would only be a good idea if that is maintained. And even...

    I think The X-Men being a metaphor that represents every kind of bigotry is one of its strengths in that regard. Instead of being pigeonholed into one type of allegory, the X-Men can explore the...

    The problem with this for me is Classic Who spends so much time in the setting and world-building that it can drag out the story to the point were episodes drag and become boring.

    I find Classic Who to be slow and meandering. I think the characters from New Who have been developed extremely well and the writers manged to do it while delivering better paced and more satisfying...

    Bryan Hitch and Scott Snyder get my vote. I don't think I have liked anything Scott Snyder has done since leaving Batman.
