AWESOMEEEEEEE

Posted by defkid210

Still can't believe this is happening. Never really cared for Superman but, it looks like Snyder is about to change that.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!

Sounds like a pretty epic story! To me, this is what makes me want to read comic books. I don't want all the fancy gimmicks or re-boots to entice me to buy....all I want is quality writing and quality art- this is the heart of comic books.

Very excited for this. Good writers can make an old character feel new again- and I have faith in Snyder.

Jim Lee is a bonus!

im excited for this,but i hope scott doesnt turn into a geoff johns,and him and greg are still friends because i think thats probably the reason why batman has been so good.

Jim Lee's description of stepping back, and letting the full scope of Supes' powers be known is just the kind of story I would want for a Superman comic. And its awesome that this story will stand alone even if its still canon to what is going on. Wow, Diana is going to make an appearance in it and have a role. The new villain is what intrigues me though. Knowing Snyder it can be something that will represent Clark's worst fears. Can't wait to get this when it finally comes out!

Nearly one year later DC is beginning paying Superman respect. I want to buy this book next Wednesday! :)

snyder is taking over DC

Posted by hyenascar

I don't want to read superman, and while i having increasingly enjoyed Snyder, he is making me question if I want to read Superman and i don't enjoy it. His answers about Superman are simple but come off exactly how I would imagine an interesting story involving Superman would sound.

Of course Jim Lee is on everyone's dream list for their favorite comic.

Damn you both. Seriously. I feel sick inside.

By the way, I don't know who's design that is for the new images of Superman in the black outfit, but that is hands down the best redesign I have ever seen. Absolutely stellar design.

What about Swamp Thing? i hope Snyder sticks with it because its awesome. Is there any reason they couldn't just take over Superman or Action Comics?

Posted by The Mast

I want to cuddle Scott Snyder's voice ok?

Posted by Loki9876

Scott is so cool.

Posted by MuyJingo

Please no. He's been screwing with Batman in a bad way, I'd rather he not touch Superman. Court of Owls was trite, overrated and made a bunch of bad retcons. Please don't do that to Supes.

Posted by thveej

God DAMN, Snyder is a heck of a hype man. I can not wait for this, love the idea of Batman and Superman being bros.

Posted by zackattack529

Im glad Snyder said he is going to make new enemies for Superman..if there is one thing that was uninteresting to me is that Superman doesnt have too many cool villains..like if you look at Batman or Spiderman i mean those guys are fairly easy to write because of so many different villains for the character to face off against meaning many story choices. Superman its difficult because his only true COOL arch nemisis is Lex. (and I would LOVE to see how Snyder writes Lex btw)

but my point is Superman NEEDs new villains! And with Snyder im sure he will make very interesting ones and with Jim lee on art, we are sure to get really cool Looking villains...man..this title is going to be awesome...i know people say wait until it comes out to judge it..but cmon..sometimes the creative team speaks for itself. both these guys have amazing resumes for me to look at and say YES, these are you're guys!..

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

I Love how Snyder still fanboys over the guys he works with :)

Dude you got a shout out lol

shut up ur face. Superman has lots to be cared about. LOL.

Posted by DMC

So they're finally rolling up their sleeves and trying to create not only a great Superman story - on par with Night of the Owls - but the next big Superman villain?

Man I hope to God this is a success and then part of my graphic novel collection.

Posted by BlueLantern1995

I've heard some many good things about Scott and I want to just pick something he is writing and just read it. His attitude is making me a fan.

Posted by Baberaham_Lincoln

So what's gonna happen to Lobdell's superman?? hasn't been doing to well, so wouldn't be surprised if this becomes the flagship title for this awesome character. He deserves a great creative team of this magnitude... awestastic!!! Ahhhh, as long as Snyder stays on Batman i'm sweet.

is it wrong that im excited for this more that i was for grant morrison's run on action?

It's gonna be legen...wait for it...

Awesome interview. Thanks so much Comic Vine.

...DARY!!!

Posted by Manwhohaseverything

Great news. I think Superman has proven countless times that he's a great character, but mostly in "Elseworlds" and mimi/maxi-series. Less so in his regular titles. (Though I do think Morrison's Action has been brilliant at times, especially the first 5-6 issues.) If this is god, and "Man of Steel" is good, Superman can once again be the icon he should be. FWIW... the Cleveland airport now has a huge Superman display at the luggage terminals. (Siegel and Shuster created Superman in a Cleveland suburb called Glenville, in case ya didn't know.)

i hope they do a batman/supes crossover :D

I'd have to agree with that. I think Snyder and Capullo are still good, but I really hope that Snyder doesn't get spread as thin as Johns has been.

man does that dude know how to talk! i hope he doesn't come off swamp thing.

All-Star Superman...that is all.

Posted by Selinaky

Really looking forward to this! Haven't read Superman in a while.

Posted by Mandrewgora

Scott and Jim are good dudes, really nice and awesome at their jobs.

Posted by Gambit1024

So is this an ongoing or a mini? Curious, because I want Snyder to write a Lex Luthor story. He gets villains.

Posted by MisterKetch

It wasn't one of mine but I know the comment he was talking about.

Snyder is really cute, totally off topic I suppose but hey if there's a chance he's gonna read this

Sad to see American Vampire going on hiatus but I guess I can just replace it with MOS on my pull list.

You stand alone on that opinion, Snyder's run on batman has been receiving almost universal praise, and trite? really?

trite/trīt/

Adjective:
(of a remark, opinion, or idea) Overused and consequently of little import; lacking originality or freshness.

The court was a new and interesting concept that was actually able to work better within Batman's ridiculous new 5 year time line then it would have been able to before the reboot. If your referring to Batman being pushed to his limits as overused he's a human being and that's what makes him interesting.

You're the only one i know who doesn't like Snyder's Batman.

Can't wait what scott willl do with supes! :)

@MuyJingo: You're a fool.

superman should be the Flagship of Dc comics not batman....batman should be the battleship...superman flagship ...lee and snyder will bring that in...very excited

Posted by SandMan_

Nice! Can't wait!

Posted by Ganthetsward20

I'm sorta happy he's taking a break with American Vampire so that he can pick up some other stuff, but also so i can catch up on it too :P

Posted by TheHeat

Can Jim Lee and Scott Snyder turn Superman from being a boring character to me to an awesome character? We shall find out next year.

Posted by judasnixon

That's bananas?!?

I don't usually like Superman, but I am very excited. I love Snyder's work on Batman. My only worry with this arrangement was that he might ditch Batman to be on this project, so I was thrilled to hear him say that wasn't his plan. Lee will of course do a great job as well. Can't wait for this book!

Posted by Lvenger

Can't believe all this never cared for Superman but now I am cause of Snyder talk. If there was nothing to care about in Superman, why is Snyder writing him? Why did he say he was one of his favourite childhood heroes? All Snyder will do is hopefully showcase why Superman is an awesome character and still remains the greatest fictional hero.

Posted by SandMan_
@Lvenger: Never cared for Superman? Anyway...Let's just wait for next year bro.
Posted by MuyJingo

@MisterKetch:

Court of Owls was not an original idea, it was trite. Yet another secret society that has always been there suddenly dedicated to planning the end of Batman. Really, that doesn't sound familiar to you? It was lacking in originality and overused...the damn thing went on for 10 issues and was an actual event.

He was pushed to his limits in an unbelievable way. Nightwing,Catwoman, all had no trouble defeating Talons. Bruce had a heck of a time.

@benette_rivera:

Not true. I made a post detailing the problems with the arc, and got a few who agreed with me. Not many, but a few.

Posted by The Stegman

I'm so excited right now...honestly, I can't even....ahhhhh. hurry up  2013

Posted by pspin

So is he taking over after Scott Lobdel or is this a new series that is separate from Superman and Action Comics

Posted by Lvenger

@SandMan_: No no you misunderstood me. I meant "can't believe all his never cared for Superman but now I do cause of Snyder's". Did you really think I'd denounce my favourite superhero? :P
