Quote from: "Super Monkey"
SUPERMAN RETURNS: THE MOVIE AND MORE TALES OF THE MAN OF STEEL

Is the Bridwell/Swan/Anderson origin story this one? I hope it wasn't edited to conform to the post-CoIE origin. Imagine young moviegoers buying this and seeing Superboy is Superman-when-he-was-a-boy, the Kents dying, etc. Then they go buy a current Superman comic and see something completely different.

How'd this one miss Beppo's list? Most of the stories are Pre-CoIE (read "good").

It sure sounds like it to me.  I doubt they edited the story, it fits in pretty well with the movies as is.  It's also the best version of the origin ever done.

They'll edit it.

I'm happy with the Elongated Man and Metal Men releases.  Both have been ignored in the DC Universe for far too long.
