I am not a Superman fan. I think he’s a tool. I think he has to be a tool?it seems like in every Justice League cartoon I ever watched, Superman would moronically fly directly into a laser, fall to the ground, and let the rest of the League flail about ineffectually until he woke up at the end of the episode to save the day. Which is why I was so pleasantly surprised by Grant Morrison All-Star Superman?it was fun, massively entertaining, and gave Superman a problem he couldn’t beat (his impending death).
Here’s another pleasant surprise?the Newsarama blog says that Grant Morrison pitched the next Superman movie as a reboot to be modeled after his All-Star Superman series at the recent DC/Warner Bros. summit (the one they held to figure out why Marvel was mostly kicking their joint asses). This is a fabulous idea. I would gladly trade Luthor’s inept henchmen, the super-toddler, and that preposterous kryptonite land-mass for Superman giving Lois her own superpowers for a day, Jimmy Olson accidentally turning into Doomsday, and that frankly incredible conversation between Clark Kent and an imprisoned Lex Luthor. It all sounds too good to be true, so it probably is.
Also, I have no idea what the hell is going on in the panels above. I must not have read that far.
