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).

Thank You's!

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.

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...
