Tarl3k: Well let's see...Superman is a one note superhero with absolutely ZERO interesting characteristics, and Aquaman is the worst superhero ever...you guys have fun with that...

/Let's see a Superman Red Son movie...that would actually be interesting


Superman is only uninteresting when written by a crappy writer. "What's So Bad About Truth, Justice, and the American Way" (aka 'Superman vs. The Elite') Is one of the better Superman stories to have come along recently.

Superman in 'Kingdom Come' was also a great character.

Jensaarai: Does he ever actually learn to fight?


He is practiced in the ancient Kryptonian art of Torquasm-Rao :

He was taught to box by a heavy-weight champion:

As a prisoner of Mongol on Warworld, he was forced into gladiatorial combat where he displayed hand-to-hand techniques and weapons skills against similarly powered fighters:

After Kandor was freed from Brainiac, he joined the Kryptonian military under General Zod.  He also got to show off his experience with pressure points that he picked up from Batman:

It's safe to assume he learned a thing or two from watching the Amazons.  He even had his cousin train with them:

Superman definitely knows his moves:

He's so skilled, you might say his greatest challenge is  . . HIMSELF:

(Actually, his greatest battle is against bad writers)

This right here; it's Superman being a farking badass without killing people.  

Superman in 'Kingdom Come' was also a great character.

That.

Superman and Aquaman  ARE as interesting as Iron Man and Thor.  I have read versions that were incredibly fun to follow (Superman in late 80s/early 90s, Aquaman with Peter David writing) and kept me coming back month after month.

Thing is, DC has to give up on fapping to the silver age version of every character and start writing stories about modern and innovative characters again, instead of focusing OCD-like on gimmicks and homages

Rwa2play: FirstNationalBastard: rocky_howard: The irony is that during Geoff Johns Aquaman run, it outsold 98% of Marvel Comics out there :P

No, the name "Geoff Johns" sold. Aquaman didn't.

Because fanboys are not yet sick of Johns's hackery, his name sells books, no matter how shiatty they are. That's what sold. It could have been Aquaman by Geoff Johns, Inferior 5 by Geoff Johns, or Buckets of shiat by Geoff Johns, and it would have sod roughly the same amount.

And now that he's gone, the book has slid merrily back down to mediocrity, and will eventually slide to cancellation levels, like the rest of DC's shiatty books. Then we can have NuNu52: The Nuening! Or maybe, Johns and Didio and the rest will find themselves replaced by people who aren't morons.

By the almighty, I can't believe the Geoff Johns that had a really good run on "The Avengers" and made "Green Lantern" popular again has slid down into craptacularness.


The Geoff Johns who wrote JSA and Stars and STRIPE had an editor who could tell him no.

NuJohns is the boss, and can crap out whatever he pleases.

PIP_the_TROLL: hammer85: or imo the best representation of what a BvS fight would look like, JL:War.

Hehe, yeah. It was like watching Superman waving away a bothersome fly.


If there's anything that that movie did correct, it was finally and undeniably showing how outmatched bats is against superman.

Jedekai: PIP_the_TROLL: Combustion: killzoe: Did subby just call Superman a sissy?

I'd have used much harsher language.

Batman > Superman.

Bullshiat.

[seekersofthebat.com image 640x660]

No; really - Batman wins.

JLA - Batman already knows how to crush him without Clark even noticing. White Kryptonite in the Metropolis water system. Harmless to humans - drains Superman.
This is not his first option. He has OODLES of others.

Non-canonical: The Dark Knight Returns.

Really non-canonical: one of the writers (Mark Waid) for Superman "back in the day" said the only thing that Superman would stand no chance against in a fair fight were Batman, John Constantine and Venom (suit only). Against everything else he has a fighting chance.


None of this can be done without forewarning. And none of it is guaranteed to work. Whose to say that Supes doesn't use his microscopic vision on everything he eats and drinks. And White Kryptonite doesn't even work on Superman.

Every argument for B-vs-S is "If Batman can do A, B, C, X, Y & Z Superman has no chance."

The Batman Tautology is "Batman always wins because Batman always wins." It's an endless series of excuses and what-ifs to stack the whole universe against Superman so Batman even has a shot.

It's ridiculous. In the popularity contest, Batman wins every time. But in an in-verse evaluation, he doesn't have a dream of winning.

X vs Y is a long tradition in comic fandom. If you want to make it interesting... what about Batman vs Black Panther.

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: big question is, is this awesome JLA, We3 Morrison, or What The F*ck Did I Just Read Final Crisis Morrison?


Ah, that's like "Who is writing Fantastic Four now? Is it Starman/Golden Age James Robinson, or his Bizarro double that wrote Superman and JLA: Cry For Justice".

DC has far more interesting characters than Superman, Aquaman, and even Batman. They just never really seem to care much about pushing those more interesting characters.

JohnBigBootay: Rwa2play: Also known as "another attempt by DC to stay relevant".

The next person who utters the phrase 'stay relevant' in my presence gets a cock punch. Relevant to what? They give two shiats about being relevant to anything. I suspect that what this is really about is selling shiat and making money, don't you?


On that note, then I would wager they want to stay relevant to the general public, who are the people that are going to buy their crap and make them money.

Yes, they do need to stay relevant to, at the very least, their consumers.
