    At almost fifty pages this is exhausting, but I'm thankful for the insight. My X of Swords hardcover is apparently five stops away right now. I bought up to Dawn of X 8 but haven't been reading the...

    Not the most prominent but there was Vartox every so often. Hyper > Super, pretty much. As well as Fate and others with magic from the Silver Age on. Mongul was a latecomer for villains, Grundy and...

    Modern? Here's how Maggin described the scene back in the 70s:


    It lines up pretty well with what people have been saying for years and decades after, doesn't it? Like even now people are asking...

    Yeah basically it's like... DKR itself. Which was an alternate reality I guess you'd say, but such a huge story that people think of it constantly.

    But even that story makes it clear that Superman...

    Technically yes, but it's circumstantial. Depending on the comic he can exceed characters created to be more powerful like the Spectre, but in a less than ideal situation he can be defeated by a...

    Does anyone acknowledge a random number like 83?...

    Does anyone acknowledge a random number like 83? 85 is around the corner though.

    Did the math and I'll be 50 when he turns 100. Can't wait!... But I really can lol

    Pretty much, but I think the character should hsve at least this many fans.



    There are a lot of reasons that comics as an industry should fail if we're honest, but those things make it so...

    Since "derivative of Batman" came up well... Batman borrows from Superman all the time. They all do. Captain Marvel even got hit with a lawsuit over it, right? The least they can do is get a good...

    Superman Adventures was really the best of both worlds.

    It's the story of the 90s in many senses of the phrase. Which means it's diminished outside of that context even by just a little. The adaptations are so on the surface that it's no wonder people...

    I cycled through clips from the beginning but ran out of patience. I saw just a bit, but the top 60% or so was obscured. I'm really not certain but this is my best guess for now.

    I wish you asked in 2006 when I watched that movie twice a week.

    Any pictures you can find?

    Godlewski is probably the most responsible for the Tomasi vibe, but it's kind of a good thing. That volume really had its moments. I feel like I'd be a little more patient if I didn't get the...

    Karl Kesel once mentioned that they would fax nearly final copies to each other in order for the stories to continue virtually seamlessly. That gives an idea of how tight they are but it also made...

    Lol, the Hood. That was such a weird thing because it wasn't his own character at all.



    It's been a while and still there's nothing that says "dropped by DC" though. All we know is he picked up...

    The Byrne hardcovers will be pretty much the only way to go when they're said and done.

    But right now only half collected, you could also get the Man of Steel volume 9 trade and that leads into...

    Historically Superman has been the more flexible character.

    The "perfect" thing I mentioned in the other post. But this all sounds like a really cynical look at the character. I'm always...

    It was a long while after being created that having his perspective challenged by the story or presenting the solution to the plot as something beyond him were things. It's as simple as the...

    Yeah there is... that. One of the things that bug me most is when a writer comes along with the tired idea that Superman is still the unflinching good guy from the 40s and they need to humble him,...

    Eh, perfect isn't bad but outdated. Siegel's Superman was perfect.

    Assuming the story wasn't exclusive to the title, most of the time you'd get some small recap or context oriented conversation. Especially if you were to keep reading that title

    I mean he's not dropped if he says he's already on a marvel project...

    Good for him. It's been like seven years and for what it's worth, Year One and Batman were both well done.

    Yeah I wasn't sure since Morrison's Action has a weaker Superman instead of one who was weakened.

    I like Superman and the Legion, Krimson Kryptonite and Final Night as well as the old Satanis...

    There are some similarities, but Diana is ultimately very different from Clark and Bruce. I mean those two characters have always been so similar in the way they're handled. I honestly wouldn't put...
