I have always been a Batman guy. My earliest TV memories involve the 1960s TV show. I certainly watched the 1950s Superman show but the Batman show stuck. Same with the comics. I have boxes full of Batman-related comics but can barely fill a comic book box with Superman-related stuff. As Batman got the Frank Miller and Jeph Loeb and Christopher Nolan treatment, Superman got to pulling stunts. Death of Superman was good for awhile, until Clark returned (like you didn't see that one coming). I thought his Blue Phase in the 1990s was lame. However, there are shining lights. The comic mentioned in the article I'm plugging, Superman for All Seasons, is the best Superman story I think I've ever read.
Pete over at SF Signal thinks so, too. And he's written a good article about how to fix the Superman films. I think he's got something. Take a read and tell me what you think.
