Since Dc is so fascinated with the concept on an "evil" Superman, I decided to keep track on them just for fun :-P

Let's start:

  1. Injustice Superman: Pretty much a morally ambigious turned dictator and evil, Superman.
  2. Brutall: A brainwashed version of Supes.
  3. SuperDoom: An alternate universe Supes.
  4. Lord Superman: Like SuperDoom, currently in JLBeyond comic.
  5. Ultraman: Same with SuperDoom and Lord Superman.
  6. Superman Future's End: Pawn of an evil force.
  7. And Superman with Doomsday virus which basically turns him into Doomsday

And that is only in one year's worth of time :-P

Once for a while it could be done, but DC overdoing it recently; through I would have exclude № 2, №6 and №7 – for me “being evil” is a choice, not infestation, brainwashing, etc.

S....M....H......

Evil superman and batman vs Superman, two themes i've had enough of and can certainly live without for the next decade.

btw note from Greg Pak, Grant Morrison's monster was called SuperDoomsday, the new superman with that DD virus is called superdoom :\ (smh i kno right) he said this after being asked why the writers chose such an unoriginal name which had assumingly been used before. It's all very confusing though cause every site has that monster listed as superdoom.

I hope brutaal dies. And the New 52 Doom story sounds very dumb.

Honestly, the idea of an evil Superman is appealing, I can understand why it's being done so often. Superman to me, is the quintessential good hero. He's righteous, caring, respectful and kind, thus, corrupting all of that makes for interesting stories. Plus, having someone THAT powerful, being evil is a terrifying thought.

Anyone else feel like this ends with some new multiversal threat popping up that's been corrupting Supermen from various dimensions as some part of a scheme to destroy/take over the multiverse?

SuperDoomsday sounds super-worst than SuperDoom, plus, I trust Pak. He'll do good by our boy.

I'm still waiting for my Batman rouge story where Superman has to stop him.

The whole transformation, and the huge crossover. IMO, it's just a big money grab. Like anything I am sure one can enjoy it, but I'll sit it out.

Pfftt, huge. Tell that to Batman, Green Lantern or the X-Men. It's three books (which I already buy so I won't see a dent in my wallet). But whatever, I guess some people just don't like fun and destruction.

Then its not that bad for you. The only superman book I read is Unchained currently. I think I'll pick up Johns and Romita's series.

You buy "Superman", dude why? Why would you do that to yourself or give money to DC to excuse their bad decision that is Lobdell.

IDK, collectors bug I suppose. I enjoyed H'el arc and his RHATO work but i agree it went downhill into crazy town after that arc.

*sigh*...You have to escape from that mentality, I had been there too and I can say that someday you are gonna regret every penny you gave to comics you buy only to complete the collection.

It bugs me that Lobdell with his horrendous writing gets as much sales as Pak.

I only have it with Superman comics though. I did however cancel Adventures (but I might keep going just to complete it) and I'd cancel Unchained but with all these delays I don't even notice the money being spent. Plus I'm at the point of no return, Doomed is 2/3rds talent and Im sure Lobdell doesn't have as much freedom on this and after this Johns is taking over. It's too late

Yeah it's too late...sad fact is that Lobdell would have been kicked out faster if people didn't buy the book just to support the character or for collecting purposes.
And Brainiac could have been saved :-(

but the stories with most of them are good so i don't see why people should complain. I mean lord superman was an interesting turn of events in the batman series, Injustice is epic, earth 2 is going good and i want a series about earth 3.
