Kurt, I will buy any Super book you  write after Astro City and Secret Identitiy. I pray, that somehow, The Earth-Prime Superboy will be translated into story possibilities that include Clark Kent who is also Superboy. Why can't he be incontinuity for at least a year "realtime". He could have a lot of adventures in the future  with the Legion in that block of time....

At this point, the future of Superboy-Prime is known only to a few, and whether or not I'm one of 'em, I wouldn't be able to say anything.

But I do like young-Clark-in-Smallville stories, so I'm with you at least there...

It should be noted that DC Direct will be releasing a Superboy-Prime action figure with the new costume design. Now if DC is doing this just because it's a cool design or because he is staying in the DC universe after IC, is not know as of yet.

I just hope they don't kill him off in some gorefest or villify him. But he does commit the crime of being likable and personable so I guess he's prolly in for it to.    :cry:

Busiek, you cheeky monkey, I KNEW there was some secret reason for you put-putting around the forum threads, and it wasn't because of our sparkling personalities, either.

Congratulations on your assignment to Superman!

You'd better believe I'm buying this thing. I was looking forward to a Busiek-written JLA, but a Busiek-written SUPERMAN is a pretty freakin' good consolation prize! It's like a dream come true.

Hopefully, after IDENTITY CRISIS, Superman will have his shinola together and be much more like the classic character that we all love.

The reason I started this thread to begin with is because I think you'd be able to write a well-characterized Luthor. The thing I love about Luthor is that he was a very sympathetic, tragic villain thanks to his treatment by Elliot S! Maggin in the 1970s-80s. A characterization that was lost post-Maggin. You have the ability to generate sympathy for characters, whether it be the Juggernaut in AVENGERS #26 or Steeljack in "Tarnished Angel."

Mark Waid, in his BIRTHRIGHT, had the right idea about Luthor: make him a misanthrope isolated and alienated from everybody else that is very sympathetic, isolated from others by his intelligence the same way Hugo Danner was isolated from others by his strength in GLADIATOR. Though personally, I thought Waid's Luthor characterization smacked of teenage histrionics. One can't imagine why Luthor was still making a fuss about all that teenage stuff as an adult.

It really was because I stumbled across the site in a Google Blog Search, honest.

It was fate or just one heck of a coincidence!

Note the title of this thread, then much later he gets the job Smiley

Maybe DC was the ones reading this one... :shock:  I guess they wanted to figure out how to get us to buy more than just TPBs of old stuff. Smiley
