    But this is typical behavior for him since the Silver Age. Be it the various incarnations of Supergirl, Lor-Zod, Cir-El, or his son in Superman Returns, this sort of thing keeps happening. He seems...

    The Superman books aren't using a lot of their older characters, or using them much, they're trying out new faces. Supes is going with Wondy, lots less Lois. The friendly scientist is Shay Veritas...

    That's something I'll never understand about some Superman fans. Batman fans love seeing their franchise expand, they don't get angry if a Batman villain is used in a Batgirl book, Robin is in a...
