But for people who are not already die-hard fans of a character what is there to like in the New 52?Originally Posted by Hulk_Is
I remember when I was about 5 getting a Superman annual which had a crossover tale with Adam Strange where (ultimately) Superman saved two worlds by pushing the Earth a few inches out of its orbit. Supes struggled and sweated with the feat over multiple panels. I thought this was the most amazing thing ever at the time.
Fast forward to the New 52 where Superman benches the weight of the Earth for 5 days straight producing one drop of sweat.
What purpose did this feat serve?
Who benefitted from this feat (who was saved by it?)
Where was the drama?
Why include this in the comic?
The old feat had drama, a purpose, a reason and Superman had to struggle.
The new feat had no drama, no purpose, no reason and Superman didn't need to struggle.
Why should I care one iota about this new Superman?
