    Shaq will always be an albatross around Steel's neck
    Which is kind of funny since as soon as I read stories with Steel in them during the late 90's, this was the time when Shaq was everywhere plus adding the fact he's a Superman fan (with a tatoo to match), I always mixed the two when I thought of a Steel movie. The problem is that unless it's voice acting (that Static Shock episode), Shaq can't act.
    No matter how many reboots, new origins, reinterpretations or suit redesigns. In the end, he will always be SUPERMAN

    Default Steel appreciation

    He's been one of my favorite underrated DC characters for 25 years since i was 11/12 when i read his comics and he's quite a unique character and a relatable character to some folks.

    Do you consider him to be DC's Iron Man in aspects even John Henry Irons as DC's Tony Stark in aspects? they did fought and met in DC vs Marvel crossover comics/cards.

    That's so crazy, I was going to start this thread later today.

    Well, not crazy, because Steel is worth it. I recently finished a read through of Gangs of Metropolis, and am restarting the Priest/Cowan run. I still remember grabbing issue #28, my first regular Steel comic, off the rack.

    Yes, I am so here for this! Steel is one of my favorite characters as well and I also feel he is underrated.

    He's pretty cool. Haven't read too much of his solo, but his storyline in 52 was bloody fantastic.

    Not that I'm seeing with a google search. Linda didn't have a thread till I started one a few months ago either.

    He's been around since Rebirth started as a main character in Superwoman.

    They're still together as of right now. I think they work pretty well together.

    Ah, the days where Steel got a movie ahead of Clark in the 1990s.

    It's been interesting, I don't think they're fit for a long-term match (Lana still loves Clark), but they have good chemistry together and there's some fun banter between them.

    I dropped Superwoman a little early because of how Steel was written, actually. I didn't like that doting boyfriend thing at all. I guess you can say he's lovably sort of dorky anyway, but it wasn't a depiction that made me want to see more of his point of view in those stories.

    But I have no problem with them staying together if someone just writes Steel differently.

    I found it. It's on these current boards:

    A Man And His Hammer - STEEL

    Maybe a merger between the two threads is in order?
