Grant Morrison spills on NUperman:

    What have you got lined up in your writing for Superman?

    I want to solve some of the problems that have grown up around the character. People now ask: ‘Why the hell would he dress up like that?’ I want to make Superman a more contemporary character. We’ll be changing how he looks, dresses and behaves. He’ll be more like the Superman who appeared in 1938 – more socially active and a champion of the oppressed.

    He’s taken his underpants off in the current comics…

    With what we’re doing he’s wearing jeans and a T-shirt – a Bruce Springsteen version of Superman, that’s the angle we’re taking. The cape’s still indestructible but the rest is picked up in a shop.

Sigh. \:\-\(

    What are you proudest of getting into a comic book?

    I’m proud of having Bruce Wayne stumbling through the streets of Gotham high on heroin.

I have not read Morrison's Batman. Now I have even less interest in doing so.
