@The Poet: I would LOVE to. But inability to like Superman is very famous <.<. lol. I've read very little of him, so I'm not a good judge.

What are you doing here then????

Really, to participate, aren't you supposed to have atleast a little appreciation for the Man of Steel?

Read the freaking thread next time, so you don't look like an asshole next time.

I was @called here.

Matters not. Just sayin', if Superman, or any related member of his "family" (Supergirl, Superboy, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, ect) is not in at least the Top 5 favorite heroes you actually reads comics to, not just watch television, movies, or wearin' a T-Shirt with an "S" shield, I genuinely don't think anyone has business here, in the evaluation of the career of one of comicbookdom's greatest heroes, if someone simply "does not care"

The "name called" is flagged, by the way.

Someone asked me to participate, as I usually do in these lists. I said no BECAUSE I don't care. I don't HAVE any business here. That's WHAT I was saying in the comment you originally replied to.

I didn't say you were one, I said you were coming off as one by ordering me around as if you owned this board. I can be in any board I want, as long as I'm within site rules.

I can't remember if I did cosign, but if I did I'm probably cosigning the same ones again anyway so:

All Star Superman +1

Superman/Batman: Search for Kryptonite +1

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies +1

Kingdom Come +1

and if I can, +1 to Superman: Secret Origin. If that's not an option, then you can +2 for All Star Superman instead of +1

Oh and @The Poet: sorry to be a terrible bother but would you mind if I changed one of my final votes from Man of Steel to Brainiac please?

I'm sorry, I just have never seen why people like Superman: Red Son. I thought it was horrible.

Now, an Elseworlds where Superman was the Russian and the other American heroes were still American...that would be something. I hated the Russian Batman. Made no sense to me.

But just the fate of Superman colliding either into Kansas or the middle of USSR simply on what side of the planet was facing the rocket, now that would be worthy of exploration by a top notch writer. Mark Waid would be my pick for that story. Or has this been done??

Edited by The Poet

@mattbutcher142: so what would you say is your favorite story if Red Son isn't? In other words: what would you vote for since we're technically in that step...

@The Poet

Can we have an update on the top 5 :-P

Edited by Bloodwolfassassin

I'll give one vote to cosign Death of Superman, but the rest are going to Action Comics issue 719: Hazard's Choice. This issue is my favorite single issue that DC has ever produced and next to Amazing Spiderman 500, it is my favorite single comic book issue of all time. I love how it illustrates the dynamic between Superman, Batman and The Joker and I love how The Joker pushes The Man of Steel to his very limit without laying a finger on him. I did a full review of it that can be found at the end of this link.

So yeah, that's my vote

I feel kind of bad that I'm like the only person who didn't enjoy Superman for All Seasons.

Posted by AmazingWebHead

The one with the Elite was a good one. It showed Superman's morality brought into the modern world. "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow" was also good. And "For the Man Who Has Everything".

Posted by The Poet

Sorry for the delay in saying this...It's been a busy week[end] plus I just finished reformating the voting system (so instead of each vote counting as 5 pts all the FOVs are totaled and multipled by 1.nv -- one point number of voters). We'll see if this works better. Don't ever say I don't listen to the community...

I'll post a top 10 in a little bit. But first an announcement:

Posted by The Poet

as promised...the current top 10:

  • All-Star Superman
  • Superman Annual #11 (For the Man who has everything)
  • Superman: Red Son
  • Kingdom Come
  • Death of Superman
  • Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?
  • Superman for All Seasons
  • Superman: Birthright
  • Infinite Crisis
  • Brainiac
  • Action Comics (1938) #1 ("Superman! Champion of the Oppressed...")

here is their stats:

All-Star Superman : 13 Cosign(s) + ( 24 FOVs x 1.19 ) = 41.56

Superman Annual #11 (For the Man who has everything) : 12 Cosign(s) + ( 21 FOVs x 1.13 ) = 35.73

Superman: Red Son : 12 Cosign(s) + ( 16 FOVs x 1.11 ) = 29.76

Kingdom Come : 11 Cosign(s) + ( 15 FOVs x 1.1 ) = 27.5

Death of Superman : 7 Cosign(s) + ( 11 FOVs x 1.19 ) = 20.09

Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? : 9 Cosign(s) + ( 9 FOVs x 1.09 ) = 18.81

Superman for All Seasons : 8 Cosign(s) + ( 8 FOVs x 1.08 ) = 16.64

Superman: Birthright : 6 Cosign(s) + ( 8 FOVs x 1.04 ) = 14.32

Infinite Crisis : 5 Cosign(s) + ( 8 FOVs x 1.04 ) = 13.32

Brainiac : 8 Cosign(s) + ( 5 FOVs x 1.05 ) = 13.25

Action Comics (1938) #1 ("Superman! Champion of the Oppressed...") : 7 Cosign(s) + ( 5 FOVs x 1.05 ) = 12.25

It's less complicated than what we had for like the villain list of 2011 (that was a mess). we'll see if this system works. by the looks of it, we'll have to do tie breaking on saturday. I figure what I'll do is create a thread with all the ties and 10 or more people can tie break. There are not as much higher on the list, but 94 onward to 147 we have a tie which will decide what the last 6 titles will be (I may reopen cosigning for them or I may just do .01 voting. Not sure...)

@The Poet Thanks :-)

7 Cosign(s) + ( 5 FOVs x 1.05 ) = 12.25@

The Poet: What's that exactly?

Posted by The Poet

@Squalleon: oh, now I see the edit...

See, this is what I was thinking would happen. I would have to explain the idea for a system suggested by with help from

So, before each of the 5 Final Order Votes were worth 5 pts each (with 25 pts in total). However, there was some confusion on what I meant by "you can use your 5 votes however you want" (I meant you meant you could use them HOWEVER you wanted so you could add 5 to one title or 1 to five or however it worked) which I guess I didn't explain to our list participant newcomers. They thought it was unfair and said we should regulate that everyone votes 1 pt per title (which would isolate users who voted for only one title). Fast forward...E. Tragedy suggested the system we are now using (absolutely no change in votes, just the way we/I count the votes)

We still count all the FOVs together, but then we multiply it by the number of voters. the forula would be FOV total x 1.0(number of voters). take your example there:

7 Cosign(s) + ( 5 FOVs x 1.05 ) = 12.25@

we start with 5 FOVs. Now, it was voted upon by 5 people, so we multiply that by 1.05 and then add that to the 7 cosigns, thus resulting in 12.25 pts in total.

So, this system depends on not only the number of votes, but the number of voters because I could use my 5 FOVs on that same title but the result would be different: 7 Cosign(s) + ( 5 FOVs x 1.01 ) = 12.05. It's only a slight difference, but in some cases it makes a title higher than another. We'll see if this system works. Still has ties though I haven't compared this spreadsheet to others from the past to see it effects that any. The only complaint thus far is that I don't have a simple explanation for this system, but I'd bet once I type it a few times I'll think of something...

My first 3 votes are for Superman for tomorrow , brainiac and death of superman - my reason for these three are the same because I own these three books and they are awesome. My last two votes are for Action comics 1 (1938) because this was the comic that started it all if it wasn't for this book we would never have had the man of steel or superheroes in general. My last vote is for Kingdom come - even though I have never read the full thing from what I have read is that this book shows superman at his most heroic and it gives us the readers a great story and a few kickass moments

@Billy Batson: counted. You want me to remove that cosign? It's easy to do. I wouldn't alter the previous thread, but on the spreadsheet I could remove that 1 pt from that title that you gave when you cosigned that title. up to you...
