Alan Moore's Supreme: Story Of The Year is everything good about all of his actual Superman work, plus All-Star all in one package. If it wasn't for the inconsistent art, it would be perfect.


I agree, amazing stuff covering the silver-age version. Love it, but ultimately I prefer the characterizations in the Byrne MoS and the Fleischer cartoons.

Which version is your favorite?

I love Superman the Animated Series. It's the show that really reminded me why I loved Superman as a kid and I don't think I've personally seen the character's universe done better. It's far and away my favorite version.


I think the entire DC animated universe is the best. I agree 100 per cent

Uhh, the fact is that Levitz and the LoSH crew did not know what Byrne was doing specifically. Hence why things went that way, not due to Levitz saying no. All Levitz said, as the LoSH writer, was he'd not have done what Byrne did as it crippled the LoSH at that point. LoSH was still working well.


First it's Levitz fault that he didn't make sure how Byrne's MoS would affect Legion before MoS came out Even more so considering Levitz was a VP of DC comics at the time. (Give Karen Berger some blame for this, BTW, as she was still editor of LSH back then).

And I can think of a few things that crippled the Legion worse than MoS did. But you really don't want to start that argument here, do you? :wink:

It's not his fault as it was not his responsibility. It was the Superman office that should have notified the LoSH office. You got that ass backwards with Levitz hate, you Levitz Livid Man.

Sure, but you'll loose like all the other ones. :P

I liked Superman in the early '80s, when Marv Wolfman (and others) was writing Action Comics. I liked the mix of tradition and innovation that characterized that period of stories. Clark was unmarried and still changed in phone booths, but the new, creepier Brainiac and Luther presented believable challenges to the Man of Steel.

There was an era around a decade ago with Kelly, Schultz, and some other guys, that was really good too.
