Oh, Morrison's stuff is great, don't get me wrong, but it's still a sort of alternate-Earth Superman, weird costume and all. But obviously he couldn't set up Superman's world for later than his run on Action and make the main Superman title, well, good. I'm assuming he wasn't allowed to show Clark and Lois dating, for instance, because the powers that be wanted them not to be--that sort of thing. I don't think Grant's Superman would tell Lois that her boyfriend was a "booty call." No idea how he views the JLA issues which show Superman punching off parademons' heads--everyone was arguing for a while that they weren't really alive, but certainly on Earth Two there are references to them being in internment camps, which raises the troubling possibility of their being living, sapient beings. Grant's Superman wouldn't be killing them.
I think Grant has taken a sow's ear and made a silk purse out of it, but I don't expect that quality to continue in his absence under the current DC administration.
Question, how was Alan Moore's take on Supreme?

I would love to see Jim Krueger and Alex Ross do this story they had planned way back when:

Subject:_ [Super Hero News] ALEX ROSS & JIM KRUEGER ON SUPREME
ROSS, KRUEGER ON SUPREME
by Rob Allstetter
Awesome Comics' Rob Liefeld said that Earth X collaborators Jim Krueger and
Alex Ross will be working on a Supreme mini-series to be released next year.
"I'm a huge fan of these two gentlemen's work and we're going to be doing a
huge project with them in the middle of 2000," Liefeld said. "Alex Ross and
Jim Krueger are doing a Supreme Prestige Format, three-issue mini-series.
"I can't tell you the title, but Alex called me months ago and said, 'I've
created a hundred new characters for this series.' I said, 'You did not.
Don't tell me a hundred because I'll go repeat that.' He said, 'I'm telling
you, it's a hundred new characters.'
"It's a story I've never seen done in comics before. Alex will be doing the
third book. He's designing all the characters, painting all the promotion
pieces, he's painting all the covers and he's doing the third book of the
Liefeld said he couldn't announce the other artists for the project's first
two issues because the deals haven't been signed yet.
"You're going to see a lot of build-up over the next year," Liefeld said. "I
think of it as our Kingdom Come. I'm extremely flattered that someone as busy
and talented as Alex and Jim have decided to do this for us.
"Alex has shown me some of the sketches and they will blow you away. Alex
continues to cement himself as one of the most versatile creators in the
field and this stuff is going to take him to the next level.
"He said, 'Rob, this will be the most controversial thing I've ever done.'
And I said, 'Well, if you're doing it with me, I can guarantee that will be
the case - whether you want it to or not.'"

Jim Krueger replied to this story way back in 2004 on Comixfan forums:
"We did speak to Rob about this possibility. Both Alex and I were giant fans of Alan Moore's work on SUpreme and the idea of doing something with it. And Rob's a lot of fun. But unfortunately, things just never worked out."
I would love to see this material!
Ohhhhh. That sounds sweet.

I'd only like to see Morrison on Supreme if he was in his "Let's get really passionate and homagey" (ala Batman and All-Star Superman) mode rather than his "Let's see how much acid I can do at once tonight" mode.
I dont care who it is or what they do with the character/title.
As long as it's someone who's actually READ THE FRIGGIN' BOOK this time!!
Frank Miller ... tho I don't see it happening ... but it's probably the closest he'd ever come to writing a Superman-type book
Well then what is this "mean supreme"?
I'll let you give your answer....
