Fans of Superman were thrilled about the ruling, as it meant that Superman would remain one of DC's central characters for years to come.  "Given the dearth of fantastic Superman stories DC has published in the last decade, I feel really comfortable with this ruling," said self-proclaimed biggest Superman fan Harry Cornwall.  "Now we can look forward to decades worth of quality Superman stories by the likes of Scott Lobdell and J. Michael Straczynski."
