@allstarsuperman: The movie was the exact same thing with better art. Probably the most faithful DC Animated movie adaptation, actually.

Both are awesome but if I had to choose I'd have to give the win to All Star. Although I will admit that this is partially because of my hatred of Frank Miller.

Tough call but All Star takes my vote. It's one of the greatest stories ever told.

All-Star, Year One is great but it is dated when compared to All-Star.

Both are too goddamn awesome but Grant with All star he defined my vision of Superman

Batman Year One. I didn't like All Star Superman. I just couldn't get into it. But there are other Superman stories I'd put before Batman Year One.

Well I guess I'll say it, superman can only have an interesting story when he dies ;)

Batman Year One

Year One is amazing. I prefer it over ASS by far.

Year One. All Star felt like fanboy porn to me. Whenever anybody talks about AllStar all they ever mention is the stuff Superman does. Not what happened to him. To me the most character development in All Star was with Luthor and not the title character. On the other hand, Year One was perfect in tone and setting in developing Batman from a vigilante to "The Batman". Also, Gordon was portrayed brilliantly in YO.

All Star Superman. You want a definitive portrayal of what Superman is? Allstar is the book you read. So rarely do we get a true representation of what and who a character is but in All star Superman you get to meet a man in his truest form. When he's dying, when he's grieving, when he's doing his job to the utmost of his abilities, when he's in love, when he's scared....Allstar Superman took an indestructible sun-god and made him vulnerable and scared while still maintaining that persons heroism and strength. Superman is designed to be the perfect hero....All Star maintained that idea while putting him at his lowest point.

I wouldn't call it the definitive version. I would just call it a hallmark of the silver age.

@dernman:

To each his own. But I'm curious, what superman story do you view as definitive?

#31 Posted by Dernman (15159 posts) - - Show Bio

@sog7dc: I wouldn't say there is a definitive because there are several ages of Superman. Mine is a mixture of the time between after silverage ended and before flashpoint started.

All-Star Superman is the better animated movie.

It's closer to the comics and translated better in animated form.

In the comics "Batman: Year One" is better.
