Flashpoint Paradox is so hopelessly edgy it makes me feel sad for supes

>Crash lands on an alien planet after Krypton blows up
>The asshole human government locks him in a lead cell full of bright light making him anorexic and weak

What the fuck was up with the writing team that day? Does someone have a massive hate boner for Supes?

Maybe they did it to show how bleak the world would be without Superman? Just look at Kingdom Come; that was depressing as fuck.

I love TAS growing up. DCAU's og supes is probably my favorite Superman, if not one of my favorite super heroes in general. The only comics I've read were Doomsday and All Star, and I must admit to being disappointed with both. All Star > Doomsday for sure, but it was still pretty "okay," by my opinion. I read All Star because people seem to point to it as quintessential Superman, and Doomsday because I saw it on sale for $8 and thought, "it was chosen to be animated; surely it's good..."

What are other trades I should try? Collections are good too; if it's a classic/staple era/run.

Plus I kind of scorn All Star because anyone who wants to argue that Superman is OP will usually point to it and gloss over that whole thing about him being super-charged to the point that it was slowly killing him.

How come Supes never uses his powers in tandem? Like he'll fly at a guy and then stop before he punches. OR he doesn't go full on ATATATATATATA mode. He should do it more often.

While Morrison and Waid are the GOAT besides the classic creatives, the best canon Supes remains Johns/Donner/Busiek/Gates/Woods era. (disregarding later New Krypton and Reing of the Doomsdays)

Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes and Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds ftw.

If you like the DCAU, you should check out the Superman Adventures books which are the comics put out to accompany TAS. I don't think it's in trades, however, but you can find it on a variety of sites for download.

There's a batch of collections of the Silver Age and Golden Age stories in a variety of way, some of the GA stuff is pretty different from TAS but not the SA stuff, so it really depends. Collected Editions blog spot is a good source for reviews of trades as is the Superman Homepage.

They have started collecting it actually. First trade came out two months ago

>>78570319
Ah, All Star.

I think this divides people who can get emotional over a scene like this, which is probably the fan who have some connection to this type (Silver Age/Reevesverse/iconic role model) of idea of Superman and the reader/fan who wants a superhero/cape story.

>>78570800
The Flowers for Bizarro story and the art related one are also really good. These stories are collected in three trades that you can get in print or digital and are over-all solid to really great.

It's just not as classic (and considering they had more access to more modern tech to produce), they don't stand up as well as the The Fleischer Studios ones.

>>78570422
That's one of my favorite images - I am not too fond of the art on him here, though.

>>78570545
Superman and the LoSH is actually a great story and proof that, at one point in time, the Cereal King really had a good imagination and a way of bending and using the existing mythos with whatever current story he (and DC) wanted to tell, something he doesn't quite mange as well since around Blackest Night.

I can't stand the opening title credit music, it just dates that show way more than the art ever could. But the episode where Brainy dreams about Superboy is just so Fractured Fairy Tales.

Is the character of Superman deminished by being an alien?

He's not a man at all, so how can he really represent the best a man can be? How can he inspire us to greatness?

What if he looked nothing like a human? It's really a pretty big coincidence that he does, when you look at the green lantern aliens and see that, aside from kryptonians, really no other aliens look remotely like humans.

If he looked like a giant bug would we still be able to look up to him as something to achieve?

he has great power. he strives to use that power for the betterment of mankind rather than for selfish gain. His being an alien does not diminish his altruism.
>>
>>78575205
Maybe he's only so altruistic because his brain works differently

Maybe humans are literally not capable of his kind of selfless do-gooding

see the problem here?
>>
>>78575114
That's a very Luthor way of thinking. That the origin of a being is the end all be all of their entire existence.

The message has always been "inspiration through action." A compassionate hand offered in a time of need, a shield in a time of danger, hope when there is nothing but darkness.

If a kind being sought to offer their incredible gifts to the entire species without need of payment or worship or servitude, could we as a species look past their outward appearance and focus only on the good that's there?

That's the real question, can we be more than we are and accept that good can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime, regardless?

Yeah, there's just so many good variations on Jonathan and Martha and Clark's upbringing; on how that provides his moral center and certainty in himself that was missing in large chunks of MoS and are missing in many other stories they are trying to tell in the past few years.

Superman's alien origin was an extrapolation of the immigrant experience. Many children of the 30's were transplanted into the US themselves, a brand new country may as well be an alien planet when you're that young. So is it still relevant?

A child from one world, raised by another's culture, trying to understand his place in the latter and rediscover the meaning of the former. You're goddamn right that's still relevant.

hmmm, imagine a superhero that is genuinly good and from there on spiral ideas what that superhero would do and keep drawing comics of those ideas for the next 80 years...
Its a bit of a boring idea but in this age of necksnapping and killing millions to save billions its kind of unique to see a hero that legitimately saves people.
I would also argue that Superman constantly inspires people to be better than themselves but that is a discussion for another thread

It's hard for me to love the curren iteration of Superman... It just feels like they're trying to whittle out all the things that made him human, relatable, an at heart down to earth kinda guy who happens to become embroiled in cosmic level events.

1. Man of Steel

3. Superman

6. Superman III
7. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Different writers, different supporting cast, usually different story focus

The ultimate Truth experience so far is the first arc of Action followed by the second arc of Superman.

Only time will tell whose finale is best.

>>78582152
Pretty much, when Action got bad Superman improved

I kind of get the feeling Pak had to suddenly re-write a lot of Action because it real weird real fast

>>78581660
Its basically a Golden Age Superman story focused on Clark's early years. I like when stories focus on that stage of his life.

>Why is he so interesting to some/what makes him more than just "guy who can do everything?"
Well, for starters, he can;t do everything as anyone who actually read a superman book can attest to.

And I like him because he has the best morals which, in good recent stories, are faced with the actual shit we have to deal with and how he deals with the dillema, even if he fails and resorts to killing like in the 90s or MoS is interesting. Also, how it shows how important upbringing is. He's not Super for being an alien with superpowers, he's super because of the values thaught to him by hard working righteous parents.

His rivalry with Luthor is also interesting since its the kind of rivalry where you sort of support both sides. Personally, I think humans should estimate ourselves higher than we do, so I can sort of relate to Luthor ( even if, of course, I prefer Superman to win since he's the right one n the end).

And when handled well, he can have good scifi stories.

Him being bro with Batman and not reusing villains as much as other heroes (save for Luthor) are plusses too. Specially since I dont really like most of his usual villain gallery aside from Lex.

What would you do if you suddenly realized you had the powers of Superman? What if it was just generic flying brick powers? This is something I've honestly thought about.
If the power set included super-hearing, then I would probably be traumatized by being forced to witness all the violence and suffering in the world that never ever stops no matter what I do. Seems like it would be torture, enough to make me give up on this rotten planet altogether, or become so desensitized that I risk turning evil.
If it was just invulnerability, super strength and subsonic flight, I don't imagine myself having the drive to be a proper superhero. I'm too apathetic to fight for truth and justice all the time, even if I'm in no real danger.
More likely I'd make money putting satellites into orbit or some other neutral path. I could occasionally be convinced to fight unusual things that no one else can handle, and from there I might have character development, but I definitely would not start out fighting street crime.

What would Supes do if he met Kevin?
>>
>>78570872
>Do good to all men, and every man can be a superman.

For me, it's the fact that I can sort of identify with him. Separate the Super and the Man for a while - Bruce Wayne is a genius billionaire without any parents who sleeps with criminals, Tony Stark is a genius man-slut billionaire with a drinking problem, Diana Prince and Thor are fish-out-of-water royalty, Peter Parker is an orphan kid with severe guilt issues and absolutely no time. Clark Kent is a country boy with a job he loves, married to a coworker, with a pair of loving parents who wants to help people, not because of some mission or complex, but because he was raised to believe it's the right thing to do. He uses his considerable powers, with which he could cause great harm, to help people, and worries if he does too much with them or too little.

My parents aren't dead, they're both very loving, and I enjoy helping people because I was raised to think it's the right thing to do. I also enjoy it greatly. I'm not as powerful as a locomotive, I'm not faster than a speeding bullet, I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound. I am, however, quite funny, a decent actor, a good friend (I'd like to think), and I can pour a damn good pint. I try to use these abilities to help others as best I can. I sometimes worry about not helping my friends out enough, or about being overbearing. it's not the same of course, but as Grant Morrison said

>Superman is a metaphor. For me, Superman has the same problems we do, but on a Paul Bunyan scale. If Superman walks the dog, he walks it around the asteroid belt because it can fly in space. When Superman’s relatives visit, they come from the 31st century and bring some hellish monster conqueror from the future. But it’s still a story about your relatives visiting.

tl;dr: he's a normie everyman on a much grander scale. At least for me, anyway.
