If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Its wierd how someone can both so perfectly understand Superman as a character and so critically misunderstand him at the same time. Mark Millar is the piece that doesn't fit.
Superman and the Legion of Superheroes
For The Man Who Has Everything
Lex Luthor: Man Of Steel
(Though in all honesty, if you like post-New 52 Superman, you probably wont get pre-New 52 Superman. So much of what makes the character great was taken away in favour of snarkiness and half-assed fist-fights.)
what was the name of the series again, about the guy that times to break Superman because he can't honestly believe anyone could be that GOOD?
Whats So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way by Joe Kelly. Only a one-shot, by the way, but the characters that appeared in it have returned in several other titles.
THAT comic should have been woven into the current New 52...and instead we have 'Let's make Superman a confused idiot'.
Funny, Morrison's Action Comics Superman doesn't come across as a "confused idiot"
And now we take the most stable and heroic character DC has...and turn him into a thug
This was not how he came across to me at all, just young and brash, just like how early Post Crisis Superman (Byrne, Wolvman) came across at times (there was an issue where Superman left a thug on top of a building, this was either Byrne or Wolvman attempt at channeling George Reeves' Superman), hell even 90's Superman had issues, especially with an unhealthy obsession with taking down Lex if I remember correctly and don't get me started on Chuck Dixon's run, now that was Superman being a thug.
I didn't read R.I.P but I did read some of his Batman and Robin run, those were enjoyable in my opinion.
I meant Chuck Austen, not Dixon. My bad
