It is, to me, as much a Superman story as something like Kingdom Come was a Superman story, even if it wasn't as overt about it.
That said, I would never argue that it is PRIMARILY a Superman story; it is first a JLA story, then a Hal Jordan story, then a Martian Manhunter story, then a Flash story, and then Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman all compete for next place.
All Star Superman
Superman: Last Son
Superman and the Legion of Superheroes
Superman and the Men of Steel
Superman: The Return of Doomsday and Superman: The Reign of Doomsday were both incredible Superman stories, and not just because they were the last pre-new 52 Superman stories to be told.
All Star Superman
Up, Up, and Away
Action Comics #775
I'm going to do a top ten list of the my favorite storylines regarding Superman:
1. Camelot Falls
2. Braniac (Geoff Johns)
3. Up Up and Away
4. Superman/Batman - Supergirl
5. New Krypton
6. Death of Superman
7. Strange Atractors
8. Shadows Linger
9. All Star Superman
10. Omac Project
Honorable mentions: Justice, Kingdom Come and Final Crisis.
Eu amo mulher maravilha.
My top 3 would be
Birthright (loved the ending)
The entire Geoff Johns run of Action Comics
The lack of DKSA on these lists is disturbing.
A lot of repeats from others:
Action Comics #775 (collected in Superman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told)
most of Johns' run (Up, Up, and Away w/ Busiek, Last Son and Escape from Bizarro World w/ Donner I thought were all good. Superman and the LoSH was meh to me...besides Gary Frank's art! Brainiac has its highs and lows.)
Superman #712 (Busiek's lost Krypto story)
Morrison's New 52 Action Comics
Secret Origin (I mean, Gary Frank's art is part of the story, right?)
For Tomorrow (lots of hate on this story on the Supes forums, except this thread for some reason. I had/have mixed feelings about it, but ultimately enjoy it.)
I really need/want to read Lex Luthor and all the other origin stories from the past decade besides the ones I listed.

Comics were happier before the Internet turned writing superhero stories into fruitless attempts to impress/entertain a small group of ppl who appear to hate comics and their creators.
Not for me. It's gained a cult following here. It's Miler's weakest Batwork but I'll take it over 300 and most of the Superman drivel in the past decade any day.DKSA is one of the worst stories ever for everyone,
This has been debated over and over again on this forum but on his best day (the Dark Knight Returns) he didn't.and Miller hates Superman at the best of times....
