    That was my idea, except that Krypton was a place where human Olympic athletes would have trouble crawling so you'd need to have the ability to leap that eighth of a mile on Earth just to walk...

    Something about that scene made me think that his self sacrifice might have redeemed him. Forget if it was music or camera angle but I recall something made me think he went "up" rather than "down".

    I did mention that it shouldn't have applied to every speedster, but I forgot about Barry actually generating it both forwards and backwards through time. That was taking an idea that shouldn't be...

    I can see the need for some connection, just not the need to make it the same thing. I prefer the Oans to have at most a superficial connection with Alan. Making the Starheart somehow influenced by...

    A regular run of the mill engineer, I agree.

    It's when you have her as an engineer on the level of Steel or one who has a bunch of fantastical adventures based solely off her abilities as an...

    The re-retconning in of Superboy in "Secret Origins" was the most irrelevant to me. Outside of Johns' restoring the original Legion in the 30th Century, did it ever get brought up in a 20th Century...

    The one thing I give the "birthing matrix" is that it made it possible for Clark to be the Kent's natural child. There are so many plot holes to jump when they suddenly have a toddler show up. ...

    Nope.

    No Lucy!
    No Lois!
    No Lana!
    Not a gender-switch on Kal or Kon or Jon.
    Not even Kara.
    I'd accept Diana if it's the Crime Syndicate version.
    Otherwise give me a Superwoman who is a...

    I'd rather we get a Superwoman who isn't a current member of Superman's supporting cast. So I'd rather Lana be just a human woman who Clark knew growing up. I

    I'd have Jimmy be in a position where he is younger than Clark and Lois but has been at the Planet longer than either of them. For some reason he got hooked on a career at the Planet early on. ...

    Except that Morrison's story arc was supposed to span his career with those final issues showing that the "t-shirt and jeans" guy who dangled Glenmorgan over the edge of the roof eventually grew into...

    It was the date that corresponded to when he was born on Krypton, I think. The June 18th was "Clark's" birthday and was the day the Kents found him in the rocket.

    My guess is that Superboy...

    My controversial opinion- Before his recent reveal neither Clark nor Lois should have been celebrities. They should be local beat reporters whose names might be known in Metropolis, but who 99% of...

    I distinctly remember when they killed Jason Todd. I had bought the first three issues off the shelf for cover price. The final issue was bagged with a higher price by my then local shop the day...

    I can see that. The 1938 stuff as Superman on an Earthlike planet under a red sun might work.

    I don't disambiguate the powers as much between those from the sun and purely physical as much as...

    I don't hate the solar battery idea and actually have it play a part in my head cannon. I've just seen too many stories that lean too far into "just a human being with sun powers" making Superman...

    To me there just should never be a "before" and "after" to Clark's abilities.

    If we were doing a reboot as this thread asks, I'd get rid of the solar basis for the powers and return to the idea...

    Right. But as Clark he has connections that had no ties to Superman. These people are now on the radar, as well. And that hot dog vendor might be more interesting as a target when you realize...

    Sure Lois and Jimmy were always connected to Superman and logical targets, but now things only connected to Clark are public. The professor he had in Superman: Heroes, for example, had no connection...

    1) Lois Lane- Neutral as she can bring out Superman's better qualities or his worst depending on the writer.
    2) Lana Lang- Negative as she traps him in his boyhood and the Clark Kent side of his...

    I think I read somewhere that either Weisinger or Ellsworth had actually requested the writers to make Superman stories more like the comedic Lucy adventures. So Lois as Lucy Ricardo to Superman's...

    I don't respect Superman for his powers. I respect him for his use of the powers. For me the high level of his powers is just a way to remove societal pressure as a motivator. Superman could run...

    My take was that since Superman never referenced his powers ever being lesser during the 1940's that they never were. The stuff that seemed to stymie him in 1939 but not 1942 wasn't his powers...
