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.

Brainiac and For The Man Who Has Everything come to mind.

All Star Superman and What's So Funny About Truth, Justice And The American Way are the ones I cherish greatly and could read again and again.

Superman: Brainiac. All day. I love it. Red Son is a favorite, as well. The ending gets me every time.

Definitly Red Son

All of the ones mentioned so far are definitely all-time Superman stories. Ones that capture the essence of the character.

All-Star Superman's insane amount of brilliance and creativity gives it great re-reading value. Also, Doomsday Jimmy Olsen

Birthright is my favorite, Kingdom Come, Red Son, and Brainiac are also great ones I don't get tired of.

#18 Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude (2685 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

actoin comics 761. Not a great great Superman story but a pinnacle characterization of him.

#27 Posted by TDK_1997 (15110 posts) - - Show Bio

All-Star Superman is one of them.

#28 Posted by Z3RO180 (6719 posts) - - Show Bio

The death of superman. My dad got me that as one of my first ever comics so its kind of a sentimental thing. Also brainiac and for tomorrow are pretty good.

#29 Posted by danhimself (22720 posts) - - Show Bio

Last Son

Brainiac

Superman and the Legion of Superheroes

Kingdom Come

Secret Identity

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).

#31 Posted by consolemaster001 (6130 posts) - - Show Bio

I should read brainiac sometime

#32 Posted by fodigg (6136 posts) - - Show Bio
  • All Star Superman
  • Red Son Superman
  • Kingdom Come


Of those, I think All Star Superman should be the benchmark for a good Superman story.
