Gaiman has shown an interest in the Man of Steel and could probably do a good job (but the Sandman series was really his adaptation of the Weisinger era Superman, so there's nowhere for him to go that he hasn't all ready gone).


Can you please elaborate on that? Ive never read something along these lines from either Sandman fans or Superman fans, and Im very curious. I enjoyed Gaiman team-up Superman/Hal Jorndan special...

I'd love to see Tom Mankiewicz revisit Superman.  Since he's not from the comic book genre exactly, team him with an artist/writer like Alan Davis.

Warren Ellis teamed up with Garcia-Lopez would be another cool option.

Throw Joey Fatone, Shaq, Jon Bongiovi, Jerry Seinfeld, and Kal-El Cage's father in a room together and see if they can come up with a credible story.  It'd be just like the '90s, but All-Star.  Smiley

 Kal-El Cage, I feel sorry for that poor kid. For the rest of his life, he's going to have to explain what his name means to non-Superman experts.  Sad

I am always pleased that even among non-fans, people know details

His secret identity, where he works, his boss's name, his co-worker's names

His Kryptonian name , in non-Superman-fan land, is less known than his Father's name

Thank Brando and Seinfeld for that


Cage should have gone with just plain old  Kal

Though who am I to say, I have a friend whose first and middle name is Bruce Wayne

and has NOTHING to do with Batman, supposedly they "noticed" later

Hew was born in '58 or so, so I tend to believe it

I first started seeing the similarities during "A Game of You" where some alternative version of Bizarro Superman is mentioned and shown.

Once you start looking for them, the parallels seem to be everywhere.

First there's the Sandman himself--Morpheus--who is super-powerful a la the god-like (sometimes) Superman. He has girl friends (and problems with a few who pester him and go through transformations--and at least one from his past who is a great regret). And he has that kind of noble, weight-of-the-world aspect that Superman had.

There's a vague feeling of a world that Morpheus came from that is now gone.

He has a "Fortress of Solitude"--with many souvenirs of his past adventures inside it--including a bottle city. The Dreaming itself is a kind of Phantom Zone.

Superman had his cousin Supergirl to turn to and talk to, Dream has his sister Death to turn to and talk to.

There's a legion of super-pets in Superman and super-familiars in Sandman.

Jerry Seinfeld should write Superman. Those commercials were pretty funny and it seemed very "superman" even though he was kinda goofy in them (hey its a comedy, of course he's going to be goofy)

Maybe Jerry moves next door to Clark Kent. (get the artist from JLI. Kevin Maguire???)

Mark Millar wouldn't do ALL STAR becuase he said that he wants to "fix" the "real" superman. Plus he wants to write all 3 books every month.

Though he's not my first, second or third choice (that would be Busiek, Levitz, and Alan Brennert), nonetheless, it would be wonderful to see Gaiman do Superman.

He can work in the shared universe pretty well. That bit in Sandman was just about the only time the Martian Manhunter had ever been cool. And his current work in ETERNALS has been interesting reading, the best non-Kirby Eternals since Roy Thomas.

Anyway, I owe him for that really great date movie, STARDUST.
