Superman sucks

Superman is too powerful for his own good. What I love about characters such as Batman is you are never really sure whether they'll win. You know good always trashes evil but even so, he's just a man. But with someone like Supes who can fly so fast he reverses time and is invulnerable to nearly everything, how can you have a truly nail biting story that doesn't involve Kryptonite? That's another thing- he's so powerful they had to invent a whole new thing just to give the rest of the world a chance.

Tell us how you really feel.

He seems to be at the animated series/Justice League level of power and durability in the new 52 version which is a good thing I think.

Superman only sucks when he's being mishandled by idiotic writers. Have you even read a Superman comic? Because it sounds like you're basing your entire argument off of the Christopher Reeve movies.

You're obviously new to the site, so I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt. Batman will always win a second encounter, so really, there is no such thing as uncertainty with characters as such as he.

Going on a characters forum just to bad mouth them is rude. If you don't like him fine, but he has fans and is a symbol of the DC universe as well as the starting point of the superhero genre. Be respectful.

Most of Superman's rouges are more then a match for him.

Superman as portrayed on BTAS/STAS/JLA was damn near perfect in my book. The uncompromising boyscout that people look up to, immensely powerful but still vulnerable....

I mainly enjoy Superman comics in one shots like all star because it allows for interesting takes on the chaarcter. I don't think the character sucks but he is not as interesting to me as most other DC characters.

when written well, superman is equal to batman. he's just not written well as often.

i didn't used to like him, but over the last month i've read a lot more of his stories and now... he's one of my fave DC characters.

I'm... Ugh. I'm not going to bother.

Go away. Then, read Birthright, All-Star, Red Son and Kingdom Come. When you've wised up, come back and we'll have a serious discussion.

@nerd217: BOOOOOOOOO...

You're never sure if Batman will win? WTH? Batman always wins...do you know what a comic is? Because clearly your lack of knowledge disturbs me...

Another hipster ragging on Superman to make himself look cool.

This. The New52 version pulled me in though, I'm more interested in him than I've been in a long time.
