ROTFLMAO!!!
Superman Homepage is a post-crisis superman site, so we have to understand how those fans are reacting to these changes, I remember feeling the way around 1986 Wink

Wait until the next Crisis finishes, oh boy, that will turn some heads.

I remember feeling the way around 1986 Wink

In 1986 I remember feeling, "Thanks Rao, I don't have to read superhero comics anymore and have my heart broken when a writer or artist leaves my fave series or a new artist who I used to like comes on board and radically changes everything the last team did."

I remember in 1986, when I was 19 and even dumber than I am now, thinking that they were going to keep all the good stuff and get rid of the bad stuff. Within weeks, I was yearning to see Clark Kent as an anchorman for WGBS again, something I still want. Oh, how I miss Josh Coyle popping his ulcer pills.

LOL, I remember in the early 70s saying "no, they're NOT going to take Clark away from the Planet and put him on some trendy TV station!"  Grin

 I was only 8 years old at the time of the revamp and I didn't even find out about it until I was twice that age! I guess I'm one of those people the post-crisis universe was made for, too bad I never embraced it! Grin I guess I would be considered the "transitional generation". At any rate, my Superman is and always will be the "Ruby Spears Superman" from the cartoon (which is a sort of combination of both versions). But I do agree that fans of the post-crisis era are now in the same position pre-crisis fans found themselves for a decade and a half.

I remember in the late 30s thinking, "By Crom, these Doc Savage mags are boring.  I wish I could read stories about a super-man who could fly and has super-strength!" as well as "I wish they would invent tv!"

I bet in the 1940's fans were going "I thought he could leap tall buildings in a single bound, why is he flying now?".
