    I don't think I'm quite getting how the Golden Age supports the "Clark is who I am" angle. My personal point of contention with the quote is that while it sounds deep it's feels really shallow when...
  2. Do you believe in the "Clark is who I am" quote?

    "Superman is what I can do; Clark is who I am" often seen as a pivotal point of the reinstatement of modern Superman's humanity as central to his...

    Well the Golden Age spans the early late 30's all the way up to the early to mid 50's. I'd definitely be perfectly fine with sticking to the Siegel and Shuster baseline, it's a period of Superman I...

    Yup that's the one. I'm real bad when it comes to actual issue numbers I pretty much always just go by story arc names so single issue stories like that really get me.

    The Powerstone Saga - I believe this was the first storyline that crossed over between Action Comics and Superman, both written by Jerry Siegel. Luthor has all the power in the world while Superman...

    It's pretty fine by me if she's the most star studded reported in America. When I read the 90's it feels like they wanted Supes to be a big deal as just Clark Kent but I think it works better for...

    I guess it'd be between him and Superman in the Bronze Age for the most complex long running version. But Golden Age Superman was the most dynamic and inspiring imo, when that guy said he was going...

    Yeah but Superman's understanding of human life reads like a pod persons understanding of it after briefly passing by the Earth not a person who's lived here his whole life. Most people lives are...

    Out of nowhere. Don't even know what to say, was he sick?

    My issue with the human thing is just that Superman's understanding of it was a very abstract one. His idea of being a human being is going to work and getting married. Meanwhile the actual human...

    Probably that time he punched Spiderman with a sonic boom. Maybe not the coolest thing hes ever punched but the way it played out was cool.

    As I understand it we'll never really see exactly what an untampered with version of the S&S early days Superman would have been like. They weren't big shots until they struck it big with Superman I...

    Musashi Miyamoto from Vagabond. It's not an exact match or anything but there are moments when the two align very well. The story actually illustrates a more competent idea of a transition of the...

    Well that's stupid but it is very modern DC where they keep trying to make him everyone and their mothers junior idk why but I guess it fits' with the modern "human" take on the character.

    So this is suppose to be the origin story for Superman in a new continuity and it's starting off by saying that Superman got his ideas from Martian Manhunter and Batman? Am I understanding that...
