heh, well I belive that everything related to the Pre-Crisis Superman should be included within reason. The only two exceptions should be if it contradicts mainstream canon: The Master Mesmerizer of Metropolis garbage, Phatom Zone mini Wink, The whole Crisis series Wink, Supergirl marriage, last issue of DCCP, you know crap like that. Another would be, I guess non-comic stuff, characters from the Serials, TV shows, comic ADs, toys, and Movies.

Though, maybe we can someday make some exceptions Wink

Master Mesmerizer is unfortunately canon.  Ditto some of the others.  But I agree whole-heartedly.

Well, either way...I lose!

I seem to be the only person who agreed with my analysis  Cheesy

So, what now, since we have a tie? Do we follow Robert's Rules of Order, where nothing changes, or do we have tiebreaker, such as the highest score in Pong?

Though technically...a majority want Luthor's Gift in, while a majority do not want Starwinds Howl in... (*hint, hint)

Canon simply by virtue of being a story in one of the canonical sources.

Any reference in the Supermanica should favour the retcon.

You mean they actually bothered to ret-con Master Mesmerizer?  How did they explain it away?
