The issue that started everything we know and love about superheroes
It's kind of interesting to see how differently his powers are portrayed here. Like that insert claims that EVERYONE on Krypton had super-strength, and no mention of solar radiation.
And that Krypton wasn't even named yet. And no word of Ma and Pa Kent.
Also the fact that Superman can't fly, and can still be hurt by a powerful enough projectile ("bursting shell"?)
I really liked the golden age superman and his abilities.
It humanized him.
But I really like his silverage/precrisis powers. He's what we all aspire to be, he's the embodiment of truth and justice.
He has all those powers, but what does he decide to do? Save people.
I think it's always amazing to look at the first appearance of superheroes if only for how much they are a proto-version of what is to come
I still say that we need a Golden Age Superman ongoing. Just a really light set of stories all set in the same time period with Superman jumping around and performing amazing feats of strength. It's a shame the only time we ever got something like this was way back in the 40's with the Fleischer shorts

I thought you can't like capes on this board? Especially Marvel
even if they're my favourite comic company and I like Bendis inside and outside of comics.
Yeah Paktion has two main down-points: Doomed and the second Truth arc. It's been solid outside of that though (but I know some people don't like how he never really gets a clean win to enjoy).
>Adventures of Superman
>Lois & Clark: New Adventures of Superman
I count 7, 8 if the remixed Williams theme for the Ruby-Spears cartoon counts.
Doomed had some good bits to it at least, I just feel they stretched it out for too long.
It's a dark horse, but I like it.
