CV's Top 100 Superman Universe Stories List
With Superman's 75th Birthday coming up in June and the Man of Steel also coming in june (plus Scott Synder's Superman title also coming up), what better year than 2013 to create a top 100 list of Superman's Best stories (plus the stories of his family, friends and, of course, enemies)?
Similar to Comic Vine's Top 100 Batman Universe Stories, this list collects issues, story arcs, mini series and other stories staring the Man of Steel and related characters (like Supergirl, Powergirl, Superboy, the Justice League, Lois Lane, Steel, Lex Luthor and all that gang).
I would like to thank all the nominators who worked a lot to bring you this list (they were perhaps the quickest group of nominators we have ever had!). In addition, I would like to give a special to Squalleon (for all his help. Wouldn't have run smoothly without him), etragedy (for his extra help including writing reasons) and everyone who made this a reality! And finally, a great big thank you to Primmaster64 for suggesting this list and Sandman_ for keeping the idea alive.
We collected the initial nominators who included: chalkshark, ckuakini, Delphic, DonFelipe, Dracade102, Eternal19, etragedy, Gambit1024, GunGunW, Icon, joeagentofhand1, jonEsherfey, Joshmightbe, RedheadedAtrocitus, SandMan_, sethysquare, Squalleon, The_ Tree, tomlikesfries, and Z3RO180.
Each nominated 5 stories to make a list of 100 stories.
Then, the community nominated 46 additional Stories to make a total of 146 stories. The community also had the chance to co-sign (in other words add a single point to their favorites). We had 37 Co-signers including:
Final Order Voting/Tie Breaking
Finally, 57 users used their 5 votes (each multiplied by 1.thenumberofvoters then added to the cosigns for the final total) to move their favorites up. The 57 included:
Then Z3RO180, Squalleon, etragedy, chalkshark, cbishop, Lvenger, and myself broke ties.
I hope you guys find it as interesting as I did (at the very least I will use this as a "to read" list. I think Spiderman is next, but more on that later...
