Not by any means. He got voted as one of the top 50 Heroes in a entertainment magazine where they said his most heroic act is being Superman

Superb
Ultimate Super Hero

A supetard SUCKFEST

WHY?



1Superman is mostly for the elite “ruling class” keeping the people of Metropolis rich and powerful, Batman had to fight from the ground up to defeat Gotham of most of its criminal underworld. Superman allows criminals like Lex to rise and become President
2The top villain isn't super Super monster or Super god, its a real estate twit. Lex sucks
3His powers are annoying, everything in Superman is about bad guys trying to garb kryptonite or else there's no drama, you know for certain he's not going to end up in a wheelchair like Miss Gordon
4Nine out of ten times Superman writing is terrible
5He became a pawn and a weapon for military powers. USSR, RonnieRaygun take your pick Superman has sold out to the military industrail complex many times
6Why can't anyone figure out that Superman and Clark Kent are the same person?
7Lois is lame, that kind of falling out a window girl might have been cool in the 50s but its not cool anymore. They tried to fix her giving her some woman's lib and girl power but she just became even more annoying
8Superman and Lois have no chemistry. Only two people are able to save Lois actors Margot Kidder,  Teri Hatcher, more often than not she is horrible
9He's overrated by fanboys, I hate his feats from pre-Crisis and his character is a poision on DC universe
10Superman is like a spy cam or the patriot act, flying around the planet fixing everything to his own approval
11The guy is, well, irrational
12Superman too self righteous
13Superman is known for feats of "dickery"
14Expanding on "dickery" Superman has too much moral absolutism, he would jail people for smoking a cigarette if he could. While he isn't totally insane like the Punisher but he's still a dick, content to uphold the values of the elite ruling class and jail every guy for speeding or annoying any college kid that had a beer.
15The Singer movie sucked, letting us know this character is dead
16Where are all these Kryptionans coming from? They must have been breeding like rats before their planet went Boom. Superman has a son? Double WTF?
17His costume is rubbish
18Typical Superman story, Lois gets herself kidnapped and Superman has to rescue her. Lex has kryptonite, so he ends up beating the ** out of the man of steel. Superman recovers and wins. End of story. Bleh…
19Doomsday was the best thing that happned him
20the biggest mistake was bringing him back, not juts as one annoying 'hero' but as half a dozen different annoying Supermen

I do realise that live is not a competition between Superman and Batman, right? They're both great superheroes, even people who hate them both can understand that. If it was a competition I would tell you that Mr. Richy Bruce have told Superman that he waste time on charity while he should being doing other things. Of course Bruce who didn't grow up in a poor place like Smalville wouldn't understand it. And Batman also let Luthor became president. As the rest of the world did, so you could just hate every single superhero in the DCU because of that. In the end, Superman and Batman as a team were the only ones who fought Luthor.

But that's exactly the point they are different, because if everybody were to be equal it would suck. I'm just glad a superpowered guy like Supes isn't as negative as Batman. That wouldn't be any good. Just like Batman wouldn't be any good if he didn't input fear on people.

Also a lot of your points seam to me that are more based on TV Superman rather than Comics Superman, I can be wrong on this one but it's the feeling I get. You should read on "For Tomorrow" to see if he didn't have any passionate relation with Lois. Or in the "Up, up...", or in e All-Stars, that one was really good.

Personally I don't like some few things in Superman, even thought I'm a big fan of both him and Lois Lane. You know, he's not perfect, but if you really know him you'll have a different opinion about him, like Batman have.

A guy who pretends he's the best hero but he's got a lot of dirty laundry. See how the writers gave Superman some slave skeletons in those closets. Krypton was a little like that whole Jim Crow era in American history

Superman is ... needing a costume redesign.

#24 Posted by Mutant X (1543 posts) - - Show Bio

a good character, though way too powerful, a little cheesy, and in desperate need of a costume change/redesign.

the crusader of truth, justice and represents the best that humanity can be. To me, that is what a superhero should stand for. There are few truly inspirational symbolic characters as Superman.

I'm not going to say he's the best character ever but apparently most of the people hating on Superman on this thread have never actually read Superman either that or they completely missed the whole point of what they did read

Have you read the original Superman stories in the golden age, have you read the silver age stories? Have you read any superman stories at all? (no modern age stories don't count since i only like the golden age and silver age stories)

And if you want to read a bad boy Superman read the new action comics #1.

#44 Edited by The Stegman (23145 posts) - - Show Bio

honestly, although he's not the most interesting character, or my favorite, but i think he is the greatest superhero of all time, he created the superhero business, he's inspired people (both fictional and in the real world) of all races, sexes, nationalities and creeds.  He's what ever hero should aspire to be like. He's one of the few heroes who will try and TALK the villain down rather than through a punch first and ask questions later. i remember one issue of the "Grounded" arc a woman was going to commit suicide, he literally sat with her the entire day, in a none threatening way and talked her down from it, that single issue made me love superman all over again

#45 Posted by SC (12709 posts) - - Show Bio

He makes people, reactive, and willing to get snarky, and precious, and shout, jib, insult at other real life human beings, even though he is fictional, because somehow he just hits on peoples emotional sides.  
 
Oh, I don't like Superman < Oh well your just a hater, GTFO troll, your ignorant, rawr!  
 
Oh, I like Superman < Oh you fanboy loser, your just a sheep. Baa, baa!  
 
Its almost never, I dislike Superman, = hey, I like him, but its okay we disagree. Lets go eat some Pizza and shoot some pigeons just like Superman and Bruce Lee.

He's currently becoming cool again in action comics, plus, if he and Wonder Woman get it on for a while, his cool factor will go through the roof in my book :)
