Would anybody like to have an informed discussion about him?

If you do then post here and let's talk about him

What do you think about him?

Why do you like him?

What would you like to see happen to him?

Anything pertaining to superman is ok here.

@sog7dc:

1. I think the world of him.

2. I like because of what he represents his powers and how he is the one hero who no matter what can help us aspire to be something more than what we are and the fact that even the greatest of heroes not only look up to Superman but they look to him for guidance.

3. I would like to see some stories about him vs Darksied,Zod,Doomsday,Mongul etc.

Would also love to see him throw down against Black Adam, Shazam, Icon, Mr. Majestic and Martian Manhunter.

@sog7dc: I dropped the book and am probably going to skip issues 23-24 of Action by him and give away Action issue 22(along with Action issues 19-21) not that it's terrible it's just inconsistent and was my least favourite book I was reading but when it was good it was good (Issue 0,13,15,19 and 20 were ssooooooooo goooood) but over all I just got disinterested. I don't think it's as bad as everyone says it is though. plus I replaced it with Batman/Superman which is a far superior book and I'm loving it.

@sog7dc: Along with Unchained they're sooo good. I can't wait for Pak to take over Action with issue 25 although we will get a test of his during villains month in the Zod and Doomsday issues to see if he's good for Superman. but if Batman/Superman is any indication he's a perfect successor for Grant Morrison.

I personally liked them. There's no reason that somebody on Earth couldn't be paranoid enough to make an anti-superman weapon. I thought the execution was pretty cool, too. What were they, black hole lasers or something, right? Pretty creative, if you ask me.

no doubt it was creative but my problem was that they were manmade. but i will say that if luthor made them im ok with it. but if anyone else did i think it kind of cheapens the fantasy of superman

@sog7dc: Haven't read it but I actually like the sound of them being man made. One of the things I've like about DC is how they have some crazy tech going on and it's actually used most of the time.

He might have made them, especially if Snyder continues Morrison's idea that he worked for Gen Lane/US Military for a bit. I also loved that Snyder had Supes use UV Vision in Unchained #1.

@kal_smahboi:

i liked that too.....but im just waiting and seeing on this series. i like my superman strong ya know?

but on to a broader topic, what do you think about superman and his ideals? specifically whether he would kill or not

#17 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3503 posts) - - Show Bio

@sog7dc:

I obviously prefer that he not, but I understand that certain few circumstances could call for it. It had to happen in the movie, for instance. I think that this Doctor Light thing is going to weigh down on him very hard. Even after they found out who was manipulating Supes, he's going to feel the guilt for this one for a long time, and I hope it's something that reflects on his character.

@kal_smahboi:

i wouldn't mind if he kill but only in the most trying of situations. with guys like doomsday or zod

#19 Edited by Kal'smahboi (3503 posts) - - Show Bio

@sog7dc:

Right. It's not like he's going around executing shoplifters. He can use it as a last resort. He would rather see one man die then have a destructive rampage continue.

@kal_smahboi:

who would you like to see writing the maintitle? because, though it was definitely better than dan jurgens run, scott lobdells has been very underwhelming.

Anyone here want an ongoing about the Earth-2 Superman? He seems more like the pre-new 52 Supes and can please a lot fans of the old DCU. It can take place before Earth 2 issue 1

I haven't been reading Earth 2, Because Supes, bats, and WW are dead in that book. But, if you read Batman/Superman 2, the Earth 2 Superman is almost exactly like Pre-new 52 supes. He's a boyscout, married to lois, and ma and pa kent are alive

@eternal19: Oh I had no clue they were dead in that. I thought it was just an alternate reality JL book.

And I read batman/superman yesterday and it was awesome. I can't wait til oak takes over action comics....I wonder who's gonna draw action comics...

THAY ARE GIVING CYBORG SUPERMAN TO SUPERGIRL!!!! SUPERGIRL!!!! To make matters even more confusing, he might not even be Hank Henshew anymore!

So what happens to hank? What happens to one of Superman's most amazing modern foes? Is Henshew dead? Will he come back in a non-superman-emblem-wearing costume? How could they? How dare they?

This is unacceptable! This will not be tolerated. This will not go unanswered! I will not stand ideally by while they desecrate one of my favourite characters. I will not allow them to turn one of DCs greatest,foes into the plaything of a Super-powered teenager. It is time Dc faced their own madness!

It is time Superboy Prime pays another visit to their head office!

I am not liking Superman: Unchained, im surprised to see so many people are. It just feels like a movie version of Superman crammed into the comics, and I dont like it. Im going to keep reading it for a while, I dig Jim Lee afterall, but its just not my cup of tea. And the solar guy is not designed very well, he actually looks kind of crummy to me. Also the dialogue is really cluttered in that book, it could be more succinct. I may give it until Superman/Wonder Woman comes out to improve.

#35 Posted by deaditegonzo (3686 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok, I just read Superman/Batman #2. One thing, I have to rave about how gorgeous the artwork is. I absolutely adore, it is near number 1, after maybe Rocafort.

Secondly, heck yes, id read an Earth2 Superman book. Its a way DC could REALLY have their cake and eat it. We can have Pre-52 Supes and New 52 Supes. And there was even a nod to Superman's eventual attraction to Wonder Woman, WHICH WAS AWESOME. The thing is, we as an audience have accepted that Kryptonians cannot die in the traditional sense, so we can have the story start before Apokolips' invasion, and then continue with Supes coming back to life. Id read it!

Last thing is, I read some Supergirl stuff I was behind on. 1) I loved the Power Girl stuff (she's always been a fave) 2) More importantly, I thought Cyborg Superman was handled quite well, and im excited to see where that leads. And his design has literally NEVER been better.

Overall, im glad I stopped by and was challenged read the ole back log.

That would be pretty awesome. In Batman/Superman 2 he looked like old boy scout Superman. But I would like to know what happens for him to start killing.

The dialogue is cluttered? Compared to Lobdell's title, Unchained's dialogue is a well organised kitchen cabinet to Superman's messy bedroom cupboard dialogue. I still don't get why you like that title when it's far from the best interpretation of Superman. At least Unchained gives us a much more faithful interpretation of Superman.

On a broader note I'd like to ask everyone: would you like to see superman have a series or a story arc where he spends most of his time in space fighting aliens? I'd likento see a sci fi supes

@ultimatesmfan: If not an entire stirrings at Least an epic fight in space where he wouldn't have to hold back. And a space adventure presents creative ways for him to use his powers

So, the villain can give Superman a challenge? Mongul, Darkseid, Doomsday are all physically stronger than Supes.

@sandman_: I've never heard that before. How can you prove they're physically stronger than him? And I wouldn't have a problem with a villain with a unique powerset that presents a challenge. But. Guy that is powered similarly and is just better than supes. I don't like that

Edit: I know darksied is stronger but the other two I don't think they're stronger than supes
