Has anyone ever read Superman:Kal
I think its the greatest Elseworlds and Post Crisis Superman story, because it blends humour, tragedy and terror beautifully and its a great way of reinterpreting Superman's origin
But they did push the boundary with Lady Loisse's rape and murder by Baron Luthor  
What do you guys think Huh?

I didn't have a problem with it. It wasn't exploitive and it advanced the story.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

My favourite Elseworlds so far, perhaps because of the art, is the one from a couple of years back set in the late 19th century. Oh, I forget the title now, and I'm never going to be able to find it in the stacks of unsorted comics I have, but you know the one I mean: it was all World Fairs and dirigibles and stuff.

I rather liked "Superboy's Legion", and it's a pity we didn't see a sequel.

If "DC: The New Frontier" is classified as an Elseworld, then I'd nominate it for top honors...

... along with "Superman: Secret Identity", of course.   :wink:

And while it's a crossover rather than an Elseworld story, the first "Superman vs. Aliens" was pretty good.  I'd actually prefer that "Kara" to the present one so far.

Also i recommend The Superman Monster where Viktor Luthor recreates a patchwork man from an infant skeleton found in a birthing matrix, now i wonder where that came from................

How could I forget that? I really loved that series, especially the portrayals of Hal Jordan and The Martian Manhunter. Man alive, that was good.
