These are all the reasons I'm not a fan of Superman. He just doesn't do it for me; however, if not for his existence or his being the way he is I don't think I would have such an attachment to the other heroes I enjoy. He gives me something to compare Hal Jordan and Bruce Wayne and while those two can even be suckers sometimes I always think, "Well at least they aren't Superman." and then continues to enjoy the comic.
That said I am going to read Geoff Johns Secret Origins for Superman, I haven't read anything about Superman in years and I've decided to give something another go.
In the Dark Knight Rises John Blake realized that sometimes to do the right thing you can't just follow orders, you have to take things into your own hands and that's why Batman is able to do the things the police can't. So he leaves the police force after the incident with the bridge.
I actually enjoyed Daniels run with Detective comics. I mean it isn't my favorite DC comic nor is he my favorite writer of all time, but I enjoyed the feel of each book. I will be interested to see what he does after this.
