I think John Stewart serves as the "in-between" generation character. DC has a tendency of keeping up tradition, of having a Flash or GL or Batman every generation of reader. In the last three decades of so, they've done the same thing for their Continuity. I know a little about the new Green Lantern Baz but it seems he serves as the 2010s GL. I think you can kind of just split each Lantern into a generation I'm sure some would agree. Hal Jordan has been pulled out of the water works by Johns (which you can probably argue that is a good or a bad thing...) as the definitive Lantern. But I know readers of all ages and they all say that one Lantern is their GL. I think Baz will do the same he'll be shadowed by Jordan. What does this have to do with Stewart? I think between the generations, John Stewart was thrown in to as some users have argued, he was a diversity-adder. And because of that, he's had to just insert modern age as Baz takes the "2010s" Lantern and Jordan takes "definitive" and a lot of the young readers know Kyle, such as me, and then Guy is well...Guy.

Interesting. Tuning in for the first ep at least.

I don't see it lasting. He'll be too busy saving the world and stuff like any other super hero president would be.

^This, basically. 
 
As far as President-Superheroes? I reckon the only guy who realistically could for it to be logical would be Tony Stark. Former Defence Secretary/SHIELD head, with a business mind and a face that could represent America. Stark2012, perhaps?

I think a lot of Superman's villains would work better against street-levels, like Spidey or Batman, but shouldn't be a threat to Supes. He holds back too much. Give him some heavy hitters, or have more wide-spanning villains. I would love a storyline where he ends up trapped on Apokalips, and has to get to a boom tube or something.

I absolutely agree! @Squalleon said:

I think with Superman being who he is, it's difficult to get villains who can fight him properly? I like a lot of Superman villains alas, sometimes you get the feeling they like in substance in comparison to Spidey's or Bats' Rogue Galleries. Personally - I think Superman should be fighting tough villains and not people like Toyman who he can easily take down in seconds. Superman stories should be something similar to big hitters smacking each other around in my humble opinion.

Thats the problem with modern day superman he was striped of his inteligent and became a mindless punching machine.For me Luthor,Brainiac,Darkseid,Mr. Mxyzplk are the villians that define superman because they challenge both his mind and body.I see where you are getting at but think about it this way. Joker can't beat batman in physical combat but sure as hell he can mess his mind(poor example :-P).

I get that but - I really don't think that Comic Writers would stop themselves from turning Superman into the Ultimate Gary Stu. Now, I like Superman and I like a lot of writers. I've got a weird view on every writer I read depending on how much of their stuff I've read and what they're writing. With Superman, and his villain roster at that, there is this huge sense of him being a "Gary Stu." Why? Because he was a Gary Stu before there were Gary Stus. And that's not anyone's fault, as Superman is one of the first. Some would argue the first character of his kind. His villains were set originally in this idea that Superman'd adversary - be it the zantastic Toyman or the Genius Lex Luthor - was just going to lose. Now we do want a challenge in our storytelling and Comic writers sometimes struggle to deliver it. And that is why, Superman should be equally strengthened, to show that challenge in a fight once again.

Yeah, sort of agree with that idea but - if we're going to have Superman be a thinking comic then they need to be careful with how they approach it. I imagine it could be very "Gary Stu" very easily, (I don't trust writers enough to see them not do something like that).

And, (as comicvine/my browser's being strange, I replying to the post below above it), I totally agree!

As a new take on JSA, I do like this title.

Fresh out of the writing oven is my "Superman: Ulyverse Style" Prologue, I'd love to hear what people have to say about it before writing another a chapter?
