    Default Pick your Top 8 Superverse characters (besides Clark)

    Let's say there's a new Superman project coming out. Could be a movie, tv show, video game, animated, musical, whatever.

    Superman (Clark Kent / Kal-El) will be the star, but DC / Warner wants to surround him with 8 other Superverse characters that they'll fully develop in new ways.

    YOU pick the 8 Superverse characters to surround Clark.

    They could be civilian supporting cast, costumed SuperFam allies, or rogues gallery members. But you only have 8 slots to fill.

    First draft for my picks to surround Clark:

    1. Lois Lane
    2. Lex Luthor
    3. John Henry Irons
    4. Brainiac
    5. Supergirl
    6. Jimmy Olsen
    7. Perry White
    8. "Zod"

    Hmm ... I may change my picks later.

    What about yours?

    Daily Planet:
    Lois Lane
    Jimmy Olsen

    Supporting heroes/metas:
    John Henry Irons
    Livewire (Villain turned ally later)

    Villains:
    Brainiac
    Blaze & Silver Banshee
    The Cadmus Project (I know this is cheating a bit using the corp as one entity, but I'm doing it!)

    Only having eight slots made for some interesting cuts, but I justified omitting some favorites of mine like Kara and Kon because I figure they're the types of characters who fit best as later additions to a narrative anyway. Lex is out only because I figured to focus on some different villains. Lois and Jimmy I just consider super obvious, with in my head an early Morrison vibe for Clark and the two of them being their own little Scooby gang. Livewire I add because I think she's underrated and is a good redemption story, and I like Blaze and Banshee for the supernatural element which is a rarity in Superman stories, plus I'd riff a little off the Darkseid/Intergang secret connections and do something similar with Cadmus being influenced by Blaze. The science angle with Cadmus then brings would be a naturally point of introduction for John Henry. Brainiac then being the more cosmic major villain.

    The Kents
    Krypto
    Lex Luthor
    Steel
    Jon Kent
    Brainiac

    Hard list to make, but keep in mind I love most the Superverse. As of right now, though, this is it. The top two spots are consistent, though.

    Only having 8 slots makes this list tricky to make since the Superverse supporting cast is comprised of civilians, Super Family heroes and villains. So it feels unfair to exclude some characters. That being said, these are my top 8 favourite Superverse characters:

    1. Lex Luthor
    2. Lois Lane
    3. Jonathan & Martha Kent
    4. Supergirl
    5. Brainiac
    6. Conner Kent/Kon-El
    7. Jon Kent
    8. Jimmy Olsen
