What did you like about Synder's run? Overall, I thought it missed the mark, ended aburptly, and "apologized" for Superman, though I believe Synder wasn't tentative about showing a powerful, assertive Superman.

Scott wasn't afraid to try something new and different, but at the same time without polarizing the fan base like many writers did during the New 52. The only things I didn't like about those 9 issues were:

1. One issue took a few months to even land on the shelves.

2. It lasted only 9 issues.

Scott Snyder had a great Batman run (from what I heard). So, it's a shame he didn't stick around to do a Superman monthly. But I get the sense he doesn't really like Superman enough to want the job. But I could be wrong.

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?
