So did the Post Crisis comics, save for Steven T. Seagle who outright said that he wasn't a Superman fan multiple times during his tenure and afterwards. To think that only the Pre-Crisis comics and Grant Morrison's run are the only ones, is to show bias and a lack of understanding.Maggin did not write in the Silver Age, he wrote in the Bronze Age. And several writers-Jerry Siegel in particular-wrote stories in the Silver Age that despite some of the silliness of the time had real caring and a real soul to them.
People still talk about Carlin and Berganza, as much as they do Schwartz and Mort in terms of editorial. In terms of writing, people have and will think of Byrne, Wolfman, Jurgens, Ordway, Stern, Simonson, Waid, Johns, Morrison, Loeb, Kelly, Casey, Michellene, Millar, Rucka, Busiek, Kessel, JMS and Robinson.And it is not like the Post-Crisis comics were of some superior and inspired level. They were very average comics and the sales of them reflected that. No one will be talking about the editorialship of whoever edited those books in 50 years like they do about Mort.
Nothing was easy for Clark in the Post Crisis continuity. He had trouble taking Luthor down. He had to deal with Lana wanting something more out of him, than he could offer back to her. He had trouble earning Lois's respect as Clark Kent. He knew what it was like to see a life taken in front of him, when his vision powers showed him the effect of death. When he was fifteen, he was unable to save a classmate who drank and drove into a tree, becoming brain dead. He had guilt from what he did to the Pocket Universe Kryptonians, which he carried with him for years. He felt alone for years until Kara entered his life and then they were at odds with each other. He carried the burden of not being alive to prevent Coast City's destruction. He questioned his leadership skills when everyone looked to him when he was in the JLA. He felt guilt for the destruction of Topeka and his inability to prevent that.I found him to be very shallow and boring because there he had no real pain, loss or issues. Everything was too easy for him-he never suffered, not really. I just can't get into a character that has it all and then some. To me, it's not compelling.
No, but he acted like a big brother to Conner and Tim when they teamed up. He was a father when he was taking care of Chris. He had that protective father mentality when it came to Kara.Even Byrne admitted that by getting rid of Superboy he made his character into a defacto Superboy. He did not seem like a parental figure to me and the Pre-Crisis Superman did.
A woman can move a lot faster with her skirt up than a man can with his pants down.
People who chime in on vs. threads with "I don't like Superman at all, but he'd win.", STOP HELPING! Superman doesn't need your damning him with faint praise, thank you.
I thought PC was politically correct when I first read it. I'm a bad superhero fan
I can't wait to see this. Snyder/Lee should do an awesome Superman series.

Sucks 200 character limit.
Which still doesn't change that Silver and Bronze were and as of eight years ago, apparently is still interchangeable.You did the same with the Julie Schwartz Bronze Age thing. You quote something and respond to it, I say, "What?" and you say, "That wasn't what I was talking about." It's confusing.
