The kind of stories you never get tired of reading ?
Mine is Red Son. I read it from start to finish for the 3rd time and i end up just as satisfied as my first read. The twist ending at the end STILL gives me goosebumps.
All Star Superman, Superman: Red Son, and Whats So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way. For the last one I always point friends I have toward it if they think Superman is lame. Also it has my absolute favorite quote from Superman ever
"Anger is easy. Hate is easy. Vengeance and spite are easy. Lucky for you, and for me, I don't like my heroes ugly and mean. I just don't believe in it."
Now while I do like my anti-heroes, I didn't really get into them until I was in my late teens. The kind of heroes I grew up with? Yeah, described by Superman in that quote.
John's Secret Origin is pretty good, Red Son is amazing, For Tomorrow, (there's a LOT of good ones listed :D )
But for me, my particular favorite are the volumes Superman: Earth One by J. Michael Straczynski. I think Clark in this one has a much more relatable human element despite him feeling so detached from the world. It's quite touching :')
All these stories (and growing up watching Superman TAS and JL) have made Superman my favorite (western) hero of all time, right up there with Goku (yes, it's possible).
