A lot of people say that Superman is the greatest superhero - yes, he was the first superhero and his name can be considered the most appealing and unique... But to be honest, I think that Superman being Superman, just doesn't really appeal to me in a way where he should exist in a, ahem "Universe". I'm a huge DC reader, but I've had a lot of thought and I think since Superman is considered the greatest, then what's the point of everyone else? You see other great superheroes like Batman and Spider-Man - will they ever have or share the spotlight? Doesn't look like they ever will, because whenever you think of superheroes Superman will always come up. These days you see so many made-up merchandise for kids, that you'd think Superman would be a part of it - I think Superman is just too iconic to stand alongside other superheroes. Hell, you could even say the same about Captain America... And now look at the growing superhero population, ever since what - the 60's I think, Marvel has been creating so many amazing characters that you'd think they would be some of the most recognized by the people, yet they're not because of... Who? Superman - don't get me wrong, Superman is one of my favourite superheroes, but I think he doesn't belong in fictional universes - he should just be the defining monument of superheroes.
