Most of these I've read, a few I haven't. I picked Kingdom Come. Not just one of the best Superman stories but one of the best stories in comics period.

You know you want to...

Do it.

What are you waiting for?

All-Star Superman all-day err'day. And anyone who disagrees is an OLD MAN and a FOOL.

Shoutouts to WHTTMT, Kingdom Come, and For the Man.... Also, Superman & the Legion of Super-Heroes needs to be on this list.

One love.

I picked Last Son simply because of the one tie in issue where Pa tells Ma about the time that Clark took him into space...that story does an amazing job of telling readers why Superman is the best superhero ever

*Motivational speaker voice* Don't worry, we'll get there eventually....it's a process.

Haha on that note, I really should get around to reading Birthright. People keep telling me awesome it is...

I see how it is...

And yes! You definitely should pick it up! All the titles here are brilliant but my favourite picks have to be Birthright, Red Son, Last Son and What's so Funny about Truth, Justice and the American Way?

Mm, I really should. I enjoyed Waid's Captain America: Man out of Time (which was basically an origin story), so I'll definitely pick up Birthright when I get the chance.

Funnily enough, I've never read any of those picks! I know it's practically blasphemy to call yourself a Supes fan and not have read Red Son....but damnit, I don't have enough money!

@veshark: Get on it mate! There is a great variety to the stories available!

All star Superman easily.

#18 Posted by The Stegman (23203 posts) - - Show Bio

This is the toughest question yet...I was going to say it's a tie between Birthright and Red Son..but then you threw Kingdom Come in the mix....damn.

Okay.

1. Kingdom Come

2. Birthright

3. Red Son...

#19 Edited by mark15 (72 posts) - - Show Bio

Birthright has the best Superman moments, All Star Superman never shocked me like it did.
Also, why isn't Dark Knight Returns up there, that's the best Superman story

#20 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (32895 posts) - - Show Bio

Gah Birthright or All-Star I just don't know...................!!!!

#21 Posted by DonFelipe (1096 posts) - - Show Bio

My favorite story is Red Son but I wouldn't say it's the best.

#22 Posted by bloggerboy (543 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't even read the rest of the choices. Picked All-Star Superman right off the bat.

If every person on the planet were to read All-Star Superman we would be so much closer to world peace and the end of world hunger. I don't know how or why but it would happen.

#24 Edited by G_Money_Christmas (881 posts) - - Show Bio

I picked Birthright because I haven't read that many Superman stories. It's not one of the most praised stories but I liked Ending Battle a lot, too. I'm looking on eBay about getting "What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?" I liked the movie and it's supposed to be a good book too.

#25 Posted by dondave (34667 posts) - - Show Bio

I have all the issue's for Birthright but have never gotten around to reading it. I really liked the Brainiac storyline however, Red Son Superman is my favourite Superman story.

#26 Edited by Mucklefluga (2524 posts) - - Show Bio

'For The Man Who Has Everything' deserves more votes, even if it isn't the 'best' it's still up there.

#27 Edited by Mucklefluga (2524 posts) - - Show Bio

This poll is making me wanna read All-Star Superman again like watching a food TV show makes you wanna grab a snack.

#28 Edited by Thor_Ul (91 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't believe than choose could be so hard....

But making a deep analysis, all the good stories of Superman are about WHO Superman is and what he means. Could be this through his beggining, his end or putting him in an alternate world.

So even I would like to vote for some of the favorites of best writers as Morrison, Straz, Waid or Moore, my vote goes to Kelly, because he was smart enough to do that in-continuity.

(Yes, I know than "For the man who has everything" was a work in continuity too, but most of the history happened in that dreamworld).

Secret origin

Best writer/artist duo

Groundwork for a successful superman movie

#33 Posted by Manwhohaseverything (1839 posts) - - Show Bio

Of course, I HAVE to vote "For the Man who has Everything."

#34 Posted by spinningbirdcake (1430 posts) - - Show Bio

Most of these I've read, a few I haven't. I picked Kingdom Come. Not just one of the best Superman stories but one of the best stories in comics period.

Completely agree. Kingdom Come is my favorite comic book story ever. Alex Ross is the best artist ever.

#35 Posted by kennybaese (1101 posts) - - Show Bio

This is a pretty hard choice between Red Son and All Star for me... Probably All Star.

#36 Posted by The_Vein (167 posts) - - Show Bio

I picked All Star but Birthright was like, a hair behind it.

All Star

#41 Posted by RustyRoy (11119 posts) - - Show Bio

Tough one, I like All star, Birthright and What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, And The American Way but I have to give it to For the Man Who has Everything. Btw KC is a JSA story.

#42 Posted by modunhanul (403 posts) - - Show Bio

I chose Secret Identity.

All-Star Superman is good. I've also read some early superman comic, the Superman: Man of Steel adventure and some Confidential issues.

They were all good. Fun to read.

#46 Posted by logy5000 (5655 posts) - - Show Bio

When I was 12, "For the man who has everything" was my favorite. Now, I'd probably say "Our worlds at war" is my favorite, despite the bad art in some places.

#47 Posted by ULTRAstarkiller (5952 posts) - - Show Bio

Chose All Star cause the movie was good.

#48 Posted by sora_thekey (8154 posts) - - Show Bio

My favorite story is not there (Which is the Elseworld story The Last Family of Krypton)... So I chose my second favorite. (Current continuity doesn't bode well with me when it comes to Supes.)

You did good, Comicvine.

You did good.

Sorry...

For the Man who has everything , one of Alan Moore classic and my favorite . Whenever I read Superman and Van-el scene saddens me.

Is Kingdom come really a Superman story? I think it is a DC universe story.

#50 Posted by jumpstart55 (2269 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman: Red Son.

It just completely blew my mind while i was reading it.
