In light of the Bendis discussion below, whom would you choose to write Superman? To be frank, I can't think of anyone current. I wouldn't mind seeing Elliot S! Maggin have a go at a story, or Alex Ross, but those lads have made their mark on the character, and I think a fresh hand is called for to some extent. Still, I cannot think of anyone from the present crop of writers that I would put to write Superman.

I know Scott Snyder wrote Superman: Unchained but I'd love it if he wrote Superman stories for at least 3 years instead of just 9 issues. That was far too short of a run.

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?
