    Except that, after they went into orbit, I thought it was Superman who punched Zod back down to Earth?

    He kind of was because the power reduction was not across the board as I recall. Superman, Wonder Woman and Kid Flash/ the Flash got a huge power reduction but I think the Green Lanterns and some...

    As someone said, I don't think Superman is locked into an era though certain core elements developed in certain eras. But it may be different for different people.

    I said I thought Superman may...

    He may well incite some violence from his followers but he's not going to overthrow our system of government. If he loses, he will officially not be the president anymore in January, Biden will be...

    Yeah this is totally on a M o S level where thousands of people would realistically be dead and property damage in the billions.

    It makes me think of that Bronze Age story where Superman and the...

    It's a mixed bag. If anything, both his presentation on "Supergirl" and in "Justice League" indicate they think the audience does not find him outdated and that maybe the mistake was to think he was...

    That was my take on it, that Clark at that stage just didn't trust himself to use his strength on a human, didn't know how much was enough and how much was too much.

    Granted, it doesn't make...

    I think there are ghosts because my invisible, inaudible, non-corporeal dragon that lives in the garage I don't have told me there are and the look on his face, the sound of his voice and his paw on...

    You defined the problems much better than I did. I'm particularly bothered by the highlighted parts, that there's parts missing that Snyder wasn't interested in dealing with and they are important...

    Honestly, it's almost impossible to not have any modern take when something retro is done. WW is a great example. It is set in World War I but, obviously, no movie with these opinions and ideas...

    I think it's unavoidable though for some characters. For instance, one of the things that killed the Chris Reeve Superman franchise for me was the Amnesia Kiss. Now, at the time, this was not...

    The truck thing is an endless debate and unfortunate because it shows how locked into a certain era and image Superman is and any attempt to break out of that results in "Superman wouldn't do that". ...

    Recently, on FB, encountered the idea that there's a significant difference between a Liberal and a Leftist. Unfortunately, some things I thought would be Liberal (like Trans rights) seem to be...

    A battle that destroyed a city and caused countless deaths followed by a brief scene with a satellite.

    Then we get the next movie that skips almost entirely over how Superman went from this figure...

    I call the ending a jump from a disaster scene to Superman apparently being popular with no real exploration of how he got to that.

    The thing is that nurture seems to have little to do with this...

    Of the ones I've seen, the oldest 1940s serials are pretty much irrelevant because we see the Kents for maybe one scene.

    In the 1950s show, we only see the Kents in the first episode. We don't...

    They were no more nor less human than the Smallville take or several others.

    It's all a point of view about a fictional character, of course. But I don't think "superheroes" is a generic category. He may understand the essence of one character but not another. There also...

    More like quips and joking around.

    Ma'am, is this man still bothering you?

    Of course, if you lose, you're off the team.

    I would have to say John Byrne got the biggest opportunity because it happened during a time when comic readership was still very high and he got to define who Superman would be at the foundation for...

    I think the only issue I have with that is that, yes, it's cool looking in a modern "Let's all wear black" way but it's just not Superman unless it's some alternate reality version. I've seen images...

    I was joking, implying that none of the trunkless looks really stand up to the look with the trunks.

    As someone already said, a lot of it is that it seems they just remove the trunks without much...

    "What's your favorite trunkless look?" is a little bit like "Are you still beating your wife?" but I'd go with the middle one. It almost looks like he's wearing blue tights that just blend in.
