Subj: For similar reasons, this is why I quit reading Peter David's Supergirl & have no reason to read Superman now. *NT*

Reply Subj: A jumping Superman who has lower powers and no parents around, and uses Clark Kent as an alter ego (rather than IS Clark Kent) ...

    ... more rope for DC to hang itself. This corroborates Grant Morrison flat-out saying that the new Superman will be like the 1938 Superman. DC must be dying to hand the character over to the Heirs, which is F-I-N-E by me.

    I'll keep a light on, Supey. And a pen in my hand.


It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
