Love it. A five billion year old Superman stands on earth, the last man to tread it's surface. Having returned one more time to pay homage at the grave of the kindly earthly couple who taught him the gift of morality. And he's frickin' powerful. The sun has turned into a red giant but it clearly does not weaken him. He even acknowledges that he could easily save the wreckage of the Earth by pushing it out of orbit, but he is choosing to let it go. And he's not bent. He's not covered by gray. He is as young and enduring as he ever was. A champion of justice who still fights the never ending battle for Truth and Justice.

Again, I'M LOVIN' IT!

Man, I'm ready for Tom King to have a Superman run. I don't think it'll take too long for that to happen.


Not if Bendis ends up having a long run...

But yeah, looks like Tom King could be good on Superman if allowed a shot at it. Let's hope he gets that shot and Bendis' run is short.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
