Hello All!

With Superman's 75th Birthday coming up in June and the Man of Steel also coming in june (plus Scott Synder's Superman title also coming up), what better year than 2013 to create a top 100 list of Superman's Best stories (plus the stories of his family, friends and, of course, enemies)?

Similar to Comic Vine's Top 100 Batman Universe Stories, this list will collect issues, story arcs, mini series and other stories staring the Man of Steel and related characters (like Supergirl, Powergirl, Superboy, the Justice League, Lois Lane, Steel, Lex Luthor and all that gang). It will be made and ordered by YOU, the Comic Vine Community!

Right Now: We are looking for Nominators! So Sign up!

What does a nominator do?

they pick 5 stories (see definition of stories above) and writes 3+ sentences reasons why the story should be included in the list

ex:

All-Star Superman
All-Star Superman is well known for its mostly talented writer Grant Morrison. Here, Grant proves just how great he can really be, by delivering an epic story that will make sure to keep you intrigued at all times. Superman learns that an intelligent enemy can prove to be a greater threat than a super-powered one. By the end of this mini-series, you'll be wishing it weren't mini. -- tomlikesfries

We currently have 20 nominators ( 0 nominator slots left!)

  1. SandMan_
  2. sethysquare
  3. Gambit1024
  4. tomlikesfries
  5. Z3RO180
  6. DonFelipe
  7. ckuakini
  8. Joshmightbe
  9. Icon
  10. GunGunW
  11. joeagentofhand1
  12. Delphic
  13. RedheadedAtrocitus
  14. The_ Tree
  15. jonEsherfey
  16. Dracade102
  17. Squalleon
  18. etragedy
  19. Eternal19
  20. chalkshark

Can't be a nominator or didn't get the chance to? Don't worry! You'll still have the chance to participate in the COMMUNITY NOMINATIONS step (where you can nominate stories which our nominators miss or Cosign/add you name in support of existing stories! On a completely unrelated note, I succeeded in doing something you mentioned to me earlier! Strange conversations which most people wouldn't understand ftw!)

Anyway...I have no idea what this list will be like or what will be #1, but it will be interesting!

I seriously can't wait to see the finished product...

Mostly because I've already read everything I consider to be "the best..." <.<

@joeagentofhand1: cool! adding you to the list.

I'll set up the pm soon so the nominators can coliberate and begin the nominating process (techicially it began when nominators started sending me their stories even though I can't take any of them till I create my spread sheet...)

you and me both.

of course I come from the other side of the spectrum where I have no idea what could be on this list (on the Batman list I could have compiled half or more of the list where as here: I could maybe give you half a quarter of this list..which is all the fun in doing this. Find out the unexpected). Does Superman and the gang have 100 great stories and what are they? the answer is what I'm going to find out.

I contacted him about it (he's always happy to participate in stuff like this and is a nice nominator), but he hasn't been on for a few days. So, hopefully he'll be able to be a nominator, but we'll see...

Forgot to say...We now have all positions filled. We have all 20 nominators so I'm going to lock this thread.

didn't get the chance to? Don't worry! You'll still have the chance to participate in the COMMUNITY NOMINATIONS step (where you can nominate stories which our nominators miss or Cosign/add you name in support of existing stories! )

COMING VERY SOON!!!
