    Dude, if you liked Clark eating ramen so much, you should definetly check out Superman: Meshi Manga. Since you have an One Piece avatar, you are into manga, i believe Superman: Meshi is the stuff for you. (:

    It did and did not.Clark in American alien is witty,perceptive,make statements in humourous way(hugs and kisses xoxo)and somewhat of a dork.The tv guys took the dork part is my opinion

    Was Superman: American Alien mind blowing ? No... Because this was another origin story. The biggest deffirence was, it was made out of short stories. Some of them were ok and some of them were good, but there were so many other origin stories and it looks like there will be many other origins stories for Superman in the future... Because comic book writers are only passionet about writing origin stories about Superman. It would be alot better, if the writers focused on something other than Superman's origin with a passion.

    Actually, another origin and i will puke at this point...
    I recommend Superman: Space Age, Superman: Lost, Superman ‘78, and (whenever it finishes) Superman: The Last Days of Lex Luthor for stand-alone stories about Supes that aren’t origins and which have come out recently. I totally agree by the way, there are far too many origin retellings for Supes. More Year 2/3 stories are what we need.

    They definitely did, they just didn’t want to give Landis credit because I’m sure then they would have had to pay him or put him in the show credits.

    I am acutally waiting for an Omnibus for Superman '78 because DC made an Omnibus for Batman '66. And waiting for Deluxe Editions for Space Age and Lost. I will get The Last days of lex as well, when it gets the Deluxe Edition treatment. What can i say, i like Big OHCs and can not lie. lol
