    That's a weird misconception. DKR itself had nothing to do with post crisis and neither did Kara during Crisis... if we're talking about upstaging. Wolfman doubled down on that specific idea when he...

    It seems, understandably in many ways, that it's hard to grasp how "like" is irrelevant to many decisions and outcomes. I'm sure for many people, Superman is business. Creatively, the easiest thing...

    Well, there's technically, visually, recently, emotionally, as an iconic moment...

    Here's one that came to mind

    There was a thread on Superman being cursed. The whole magic thing, like many things I've seen mentioned here, is true enough to many interpretations. But I think people forget the difference between...

    The plot stuff sounds a little odd, but I'm fine with it ultimately being an excuse to try something new. Russell and Pugh? Sure.

    The Daily Planet itself to me being the equivalent of NBC would have Clark as Bryant Gumbel. Even better actually if they also know he's Superman.

    In the 80s he had Satanis. He also had another enemy named Baron Samedi who caused him some trouble with a voodoo doll for one thing. I remember Superman Adventures having something kinda similar...

    Yeah the Legion fell several magnitudes.

    Morrison's DC shake though... if nothing else they loved that guy. An exceptional run in that they wouldn't even bother him with the editorial shenanigans...

    I also end up thinking that cover deserves more praise. Especially that middle portion with Superman at the dials, really cool.



    To me at least, this has usually been an exaggerated and rather...

    https://www.cbr.com/superman-lois-lane-transformation-storyline-problematic/

    Controversial: I actually like this story. I'd put it in something like an 80 Years of Lois. For all the weirdness...

    Speaking if which I'd love to someday see Cates "do a Bates." Sorry, couldn't resist, but anyway I mean a cosmic level Superman. Like... really cosmic, the level above what slowly trickled into the...

    I'm almost crying from those throwback costumes. I quite love the old Dawnstar so it's s great nod for me.

    I definitely see what you mean. He seemed to get distributed, like GL is more the hero of the space ways, Diana is the tough one, Bruce answers all the questions, etc.

    But with the silver age...

    Between sharing with Wolfman and having stuff like Superboy taken off the table, I think he had to roll with more compromise than Morrison.

    I really don't know why they brought George Perez on to...

    Very well said. I guess people have also pointed out that were more accurately called gags than feats in most cases leading up to the eighties.

    For all the ugliness of wartime highlighted from that period, I think Service for Serviceman is a pretty perfect storytelling engine for Superman.

    The stories dealing with qurac or president lex...

    So there really are different things mentioned, between continuity and the powers. The power thing is a lot like David's grey Hulk in that his powers were scaled to give him a higher ceiling of...

    DC tends to get weaker or stronger as a whole. Like they didn't keep Flash at pre crisis speed while cutting down Superman.

    Why? Because it was a mess. Not hard to write a fun story, but more...

    There are clear points made when say, that kid throws the rock. The moments themselves work even if they're heavy and joyless. But the big picture is a mess. One of two things may fit:

    A. Superman...

    Jurgens coming back to Rebirth was fortunate. How often does a writer revisit their old work in the main continuity?



    Well said. And I love Dabney so much. Just having Metropolis be a place...

    I'd say Morrison. He was invested enough to do a good run with loads to unpack, but he wasn't really a takeover guy. Had he been and wanted to stay around, they weren't in any real position to push...

    I think Ellis is so good and if he actually tried and wanted to stick around, he'd be the best. But I guess he'll be done in mainstream comics.



    I do think Yang would offer all of the things...

    Probably the toughest question there is ROFL. I have read it several times and it's not hard to understand, but over those twelve issues there are so many things attempted that I don't even know...

    In the other thread I compared Waid now to Jurgens in the New 52 in that there's not so much of a home to which he can return. The traditional things he'd do well with feel like a regression of sorts...

    The tpb set is a pain (I think the only one I still have is the last) and the quality isn't all that great, either. There's easily enough material to make the third hc just as appealing.
