    Although we're very early going I think there's room to posit that. We've recently lost JLC and Supersons but we're still gaining big time. It's been like 35 years since we've seen these types of...

    I started thinking about his peers, too. I don't like the Kents too involved in Superman's problems, but I'm also not so keen on consulting Batman outside of forensic evidence or Joker helo or...

    I can go either way but as a regular reader I lean towards alive. They're just two supporting characters, that no other hero ever seems to have, and not really a burden. I sort of find them funny in...

    Between the Comicvine appearance log and wiki is where I find those kind of facts. To my interest Pittsdale is in Iowa and cousin Louis had a one off appearance in Superman #349.

    I played three sports in high school including football, and as of 2005 they didn't really do any tests. From unmasked steroids to heart defects, people just sort of acted surprised when something...

    Since I was reading the Half Life of Joe Angstrom, it's funny that Sam called himself captain. Either he was in a branch where that means more or he was still Army and it was a gaffe. Steve Rogers...

    I never understood any football controversy because Superman's altruism to me was never about strictly denying himself joy, especially as a teen. Like Myskin said the story shows it as no one getting...

    Well it was something that sure bugged me about Unchained quickly, that early confrontation. Being a military figure is fine, even crossing into the world of Superman.

    Minor nitpick, but I would call this an adaptation of the legendary story from outside comics instead of a period piece. I feel the latter emphasizes a civil rights softball, picking something almost...

    The funny thing on Ella and Lucy: Ella's illness was cured by Lex post CoIE and this was just after... his original Superman clone exploded into dust that cured Lucy's blindness. Comics.

    That was the Sam I liked. The fun part of Superman to me isn't the super people around him, it's the regular people who provide contrast. Sam as military emperor, the one and only guy who seems to...

    I would say that the Zaar El idea is too prevalent, but it would have to be in hindsight because it's too early for most people to be incorrect and I defintely haven't put in the time for a theory of...

    Before it loaded I thought you had Miller's work. His work isn't all that sharp as it was 30 years ago, though you normally would expect that. But I think that if you want to claim art to be of...

    Well, I am one who gets tempted to buy books with Lorna in the cover, only to find out that her role isn't great.



    Rofl, thanks for that.

    I think the JLC saga woke them up to how good he really is and getting to run it back on his own terms is only right.

    And sorry potential Zoomers, but three 80 page chapters is the best for such a...

    It's a profoundly weird thing, if that wasn't supposed to be an earth skyfather. As an addition to the Krypton mythos it's hilarious and a definitive bullet point in summarizing the writing of Bendis.

    So Bendis dialogue tics with weird grammar and lack of a reveal aside, I quite liked this flashback. It's an enhanced version of the classic origin that feels more natural than the nature of this...

    Yes... Jimenez and Reis designs, because Anka isn't at D.C. haha



    Well, in the 70 years before maybe Johns implied it he did it on his own with time because he's Superman.

    I would have said Ending Battle. I mean if we're talking about a supervillain buffet. That, Whatever Happened, and Who Took the Super Out of Superman had the most villains in one place that I recall.
