    I don't particularly like the practice of finding new and exciting uses for Superman villains by transferring them to other heroes. It creates the frankly ludicrous impression that Superman was...

    Superman got along just fine for nearly fifty years with his parents dead. I don't see what's so necessary about having them around. It doesn't differentiate him from Batman, like he's already really...

    I wasn't reading comics in the '90s. When I was a kid in the early '00s, I knew Hal from old back issues and Super-Friends reruns, rather than because of anything he was doing in the comics...

    Tend to agree. I don't know how you get back from Kamandi's future to the Legion's future, and to try would be a mistake.

    Owing to the secondary effect of "no adverse effects" I'm going to assume that Super-Invincibility comes with Superman's general Super-Good Health, because otherwise it'd be an adverse effect to have...

    As long as it happens in "a future" rather than "THE present," I guess I can live with it. I hope he doesn't actually show it happening though. Superman has died like three times in various media in...

    I prefer the Brainiac from the Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon. Basically has a similar aesthetic to the STAS Brainiac, all the same powers, the same eternal survival, and even the same voice as the...

    Yeah, I agree. I mean, I wrote that bloody wall of text about Superman above, but ultimately it's kind of a lead up to the thought that if you brought Superman back to his roots and didn't do it to...

    I mean frankly, that explanation doesn't really make sense in the DCU. Lesser higher powers than whatever you might see at the Dawn of Creation "rub elbows" with humans all the time, and the ones...

    "Oh no, humans are too good at progress, better punish them for it." It's a weird myth to reference in a world where we've become incredibly aware that the price of progress is not divine punishment,...

    So I basically think that Superman is the "one" character I'd want to mess with, given the opportunity, at any given moment. He's far and away my favorite character of all time, but at the same time...

    I gotta admit, I just never understood why viewing the Dawn of Time was such a big deal in the DCU, outside of the writers exercising some kind of weird pop Christian mythology or something. I mean,...

    I don't know if I ever heard of Amok (I think I had him confused with Amalak, maybe Superman could too?) but that sounds fun.

    Ignition has a truly phenomenal design and mystique and I'd love to...

    Overman is one of my favorite Alternate Supermen, despite (or maybe because of) my vehement hatred of Nazis. So many times when Superman takes over the world, he's one of those "generic fascists" you...

    I figured out pretty quick that you meant individual comic books, but for a second and a half there, I thought you were saying you had the chance to buy out the company. "Jim can't be that old, can...

    Easy to do; he's not even born yet in the main time DCU, right? For close to a thousand years, even! But after "Universo" Vidar leaves the Corps he goes on to conquer the planet Earth on multiple...

    Bendis on the Legion? Heck, heck, curses and heck!

    I really disliked "The Man of Steel" from Bendis. I felt like if the New 52 was DC obnoxiously and ostentatiously going "This ain't your...

    I've never had a year, and probably never will, where I was reading most of what DC was putting out. It's just not something I'm ever going to do. But late 2012 had Morrison on Action and Azzarello...

    Yeah, it's Rebirth Superman and New 52 Superman, but keep in mind, artists often drew and still draw post-Rebirth and post-Reborn Superman as whatever the heck age they feel like, and I think that's...

    Honestly, I'd probably have a nervous breakdown. A lot of what I like so much about Superman involves a moral certainty that works well in fiction, and often not so well in real life.

    Yeah, if I absolutely had to do a hard reboot (which honestly, why would you even with Cavill still around and awesome), I would just skip all the origin stuff. This was what I thought they'd do, and...
