    My single most complete and encompassing controversial Luthor opinion is this: the idea that Luthor is an irredeemable bastard who is the worst humanity can offer is eye-rollingly stupid and dull to...

    There are actually two adaptations of "Kryptonite Nevermore" I can think of off the top of my head - though neither is particularly high profile.

    One was from Superman Adventures # 54 / 55, and...

    You're right, a lot of that super-tech isn't necessarily shown impacting ordinary lives, usually, and nor do the changes that most super-heroes make have that much of an impact - but I don't see why...

    Moore's Marvelman is one of the greats of comic book history, but I can see where a lot of people would say that Superman shouldn't be like that.

    However, I'd suggest that a story where Superman,...

    I think the Legion was really hurt by that second Waid reboot, even though in terms of content it's initially pretty solid. Superman and a lot of other characters managed to survive a reboot, and so...

    I agree that Routh should've been cast as Superman on Supergirl in the first place, and I also don't think his world really reflects Kingdom Come much at all - nor should it.

    I kind of hate...

    Here's a hot take: I think Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition is good. In fact, statistically speaking, I spend more time thinking about and writing about that one movie than I do on any other...

    I'm of the pretty firm opinion that Superman should be more durable against magic than most people, just less durable against it than he is against most other things. If an evil wizard is casting...

    I'm of two minds about the "Super-Heroes Killing" issue.

    The first mind is this: Even though super-heroes aren't and shouldn't be real, we do like to see some realism in them sometimes. And if...

    I think it has to be magic lightning for Superman to be weaker to it. We've all seen that Golden Age cover of Superman getting hit by a lightning bolt and saying "It tickles!"

    First character to come to my mind was Bruce Banner. Even leaving aside his like, fifty different alternate personalities, Bruce's own primary one oscillates situationally between noble, spiteful,...

    Wow, I'm frankly really mad at how many of you folks voted for "New Guy". At the time of this writing, I am the only one who voted for Cavill, and I'm angry about it.

    Cavill's excellent and he...

    Agreed with all of that, 100%!

    And that's another reason I like Sam Lane as just a doctor. It's distinct from Jon Kent, but it's a normal job. Similarly, I like Pete Ross as a highway engineer...

    I think that's a pretty fair question. Some people above are including Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth on lists, and frankly that's kind of absurdly restrictive. I was assuming this only applied to...

    I never bought an issue of Sideways in my life until the two issues where the New 52 Superman showed up.

    I would probably buy anything if New 52 Superman guest starred in it.

    It think it's open to interpretation, but while there are times when Superman wonders whether something can hurt him, he never actually seems to take any damage. I always interpreted the Action # 2...

    Here's a minor hot take I guess - I think Xa-Du is cooler than Zod, after Morrison's retool, and he should be used more. Especially now that Zod is increasingly more sympathetically portrayed, I...

    For Superman, I mentally separate "post-Crisis" (Oct 1986 - Dec 1999) from "pre-Flashpoint" (Dec 1999 - Oct 2011). Though the "continuity shift" doesn't actually happen 'til March 2001, Jeph Loeb and...

    You are not kidding.

    Yeah, most Silver Age stories where Superman is in college, he pretty much looks like normal, mid-30s-to-40s Superman. This even extends to live action - when George...

    Hey, come on, have you read Zero Hour?

    Parallax was right.

    He'd never join forces with those other wannabes.
