Not really, far from it and everything good this issue had, it didn't come from its portrayal of Superman.
But those mistakes and rushed decisions are horrible when they are overused. Pak has overused the "inexperienced" Superman excuse. I get that he is angry, but Pak could find better ways to express it, than having him do something stupid...again! It is not a problem of action but of consistency. Pak's Superman In the end, it becomes annoying, repetitive and disrespectful. Its Pak, trying too hard to show how "human" Clark is, he is overcompensating. Why would I even care for a guy that creates more problems than he solves? Because up to now, that is what Pak's Superman does! And Pak goes out of his way to prove it. The last BM/SM arc is proof of that.
Yeaaaaah, me and you definitely like different version of Superman. You like the iconic SUPERman more, I like when they focus on the man and make his struggle all the more relatable.
NO! You know who writes a human Superman. Waid, Busiek, Johns, without making him seem stupid or incompetent. Pak writes a Superman that becomes annoying if you have a memory strong enough to remember more than two issues of his run. I think, maybe if I list all the times he has screwed up, maybe you will see what I am talking about.
And no, Superman isn't perfect but he still is Superman god@mmit, he has to inspire a bit. Its okay to see him fail from time to time, or lose control but Pak is doing it constantly, constantly. Its annoying.
Oh happy fricken day!!! squalleon i could hug you (big ol bear hug) what i'm getting at- Someone else sees it as well!!! How irritating pak's 'superman makes mistakes' campaign is, holy crap!! Honestly thought i was alone on this, comforted that i'm not.
I will make a thread about how many times Screwupman has screwed up in Pak's run, I bet that it is at least twice per arc.
haha screwupman i like that. Forget batman superman, it's not as bad as action comics because there's literally 2-3 pages in every single issue designated for a flashback and what a monster he is and how inexperienced he is and he makes a stupid mistake and then beats himself up about it.
Pak's superman is fun but damn is that aspect irritating AF!!!
Can't speak for everyone but i liked Superman #32 so much because it made superman human in two pages without having him fail or have some self criticizing thoughts
