i dont like superman because he's not that interesting in terns of powers or origins. batman has a cool origin and has really cool gadgets that take the place of powers but they are still cooler than super breath and heat vision. superman was just born with powers because he's a humanoid alien. thats not that cool. his only true super powers that arent just amplified human abilities are heat vision and flight. superman is just boring however superman is the the template for most superheroes we see today in one way or another.

does any one here read the old avengers? back when spider man was on his own, wolverine was in the x men, and hawkeye still had a frickin bow and wasnt running around acting like a ninja. dont get me wrong i think its great to see alll the great marvel characters in one team but i miss the avengers being a pretty tight group that included pretty much cap iron man thor and whoever else they threw in there to fill the fourth or fifth position. those are the avengers. this new group ( or groups ) seem like they took all the characters in the marvel u and put them in either the new avengers or the initiative.
i know i probably couldnt do it but i would love to right on one of the avengers titles. why? because i would tell some old school avengers stories. it seems like the avengers titles have become something entirely different than what its supposed to be. earths mightiest heroes. not two teams who are earths greatest rivals. i would tell some stories with kang and the old maters of evil somehting like that.
