I thought that Old Man Logan was pretty fun...

@squalleon: Do you or does anyone else know what the story was with ckuakini? I'm curious because my description of the Sons of Superman story from my Favorite Superman Stories list is used word for word by him in the nomination (all except for the creator credits which are completely false). I tried to look him up on the site, but his profile is nowhere to be found. It looks like a lot of his messages have been deleted from the 'Vine as well. It's a funny little mystery especially since the guy aped my words. Anyone know anything on ckuakini?
I wish I had been active on comicvine when this list was being made, but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Another great organizing gig from @the_poet. I'm also very grateful that two underdog stories I've made a point to hype up made the list (#'s 72 and 75), and I've got a feeling @squalleon had something to do with that. Great work everyone! You made Supes proud...
...That being said, I really wish Superman #162, "The Amazing Story of Superman-Red and Superman-Blue," had made the list... ;)
I was a little disappointed back when this thread failed to spark any interest. Part of the charm of getting into superhero comics for me was the fact that there was this alternate history to learn and that was set in stone. Games like this were fun because they allowed you to relive and re-imagine stories you hadn't thought about in years. I guess that's why I like alternate universe stories too. I feel like that age is probably behind us to a point. Now the only people who will participate in these games are older fans and the morbidly obsessed (like me).
On the other hand, this is probably for the best. I vaguely remember an Alan Moore quote where he insults superhero fans as being trivia obsessed and impressed by their own knowledge of stories no one else cares about. Tight history and continuity like this also stifles creativity and makes writers adhere to whatever came before it no matter how ridiculous or out of characterization. So many new readers hate retcons like One More Day but so few of them have actually read stories older then MAYBE two decades (apart from the major ones). Maybe this will allow for a Brand New Day where fans aren't trivia obsessed and can accept new visions and bold creative paths.
Or maybe no one wanted to play my stupid game :p. Anyway, have a great day guys and keep reading. It's worth it.
Whoa! I'm sorry I missed most of this. I would've put up a good fight for the Silver Age, lol...
I moved to South Korea and have been VERY busy.

Well, Superman has done it before in JLA/Avengers, but that wasn't the current New 52 version. To lift Mjolnir one has to be worthy of lifting it. You shouldn't be able to do it by sheer strength alone, at least not from everything I know about the comics (never seen the Avengers animated movie). Do I think that the New 52 version of Superman is worthy? Yes. He has a courageous heart and he cares about the less fortunate. To me, that makes him worthy of lifting Mjolnir.
If Cap (who has killed, many many times) qualifies as worthy, Superman should easily be counted. However, like stated above strength should not be factored into this question as it's not strength related. Oh and the animated Avengers movies are not canon nor are they a good representation of the "rules" regarding Mjolnir.
You got it all wrong, being willing to kill is necessary in order to lift Mjolnir, but only if their death serves higher and noble purposes.
And can I get some evidence or at least an issue number to back this up? When did they establish that you must be willing to kill?
