    It's part of the inconsistency in just what his powers are and how they work.

    Is he basically a human being using solar energy to fuel a TK-ish set of fields around himself (Byrne era take)

    Plus if Wilson was "too good for TV", would he have taken this part? It's not like we are suggesting that he be cast as Pat Dugan with no reason to believe he'd take the role. Or suggesting he...

    A superfast character with a magical basis could be a great addition or another flop. The problem isn't with the basic concept of the powers it's with the execution and the larger DCU in general.

    Who Took The Super Out Of Superman in Superman #296-299 was another classic story. Our hero finds that his powers only seem to work when he is dressed as Superman. In one scene he is actually...

    Lex never hated Superboy/man for making him bald. Even in the original story that introduced the idea it wasn't the baldness, it was his belief that Superboy had done it deliberately. And that was...

    I'd want Cavill except it's been almost a decade since Man of Steel and time is moving forward. We need a young Superman who can grow into the role over several films, not a guy who has been...

    Yeah, but my take is Superman's differences are experiential rather than physiological or psychological. He doesn't have miniature suns in the blood or as cells in his body. He doesn't have weird...

    To me the alienation comes from the experience of trying to relate "life cranked up to 11" in a society where no one can imagine anything beyond 10.

    1) Yep. Sundipping sucks. Just not a fan of Superman having a "more power!!!!" setting.

    It was clear in the sense that one side was definitely closer to pure evil than the other. Sort of like the Churchill bit where if it's a choice between siding with Satan or with Hitler, Churchill...

    Different strokes and all that.

    That's why I prefer the powers not to be the result of just the yellow sun but rather that Kryptonians are naturally more powerful than humans and the sun just amps the powers up. I also never cared...

    The purpose of a hard reboot should be to erase all the prior stories, especially the vague and inconsistent ones.

    I think they'd be close in age. I think Kara was about 25 based on a Superman/Supergirl crossover just prior to Crisis but not sure how that timeline works out with her various jobs factored in.

    I can understand why he'd be left out. He's either duplicating Wildcat's skill set as his origin had him trained by the same guy as Ted Grant or if you go with the later "atomic strength" version...
