worst version?
every panel with superman floating in air with his arms crossed with glowing red eyes

thats the worst version

I don't know if Supes really would get that angry ALL the time like he does
plus when he does that, something happens to him where it looks foolish (he gets talked down too, or beaten up)

so writers want him to look tough...for a second and then take him down a notch??

There's this version of Superman where he's de-aged, de-married, and given a costume that looks like it was designed by an overrated, past-his-prime 90s comic book artist who has no business doing anything with Superman.

Thankfully, this was just a nightmare I had one night.

Right...?

Four years later and I still say Greg Rucka's revenge-driven maniac.

Dan Jurgens.



Is there a context I'm missing here?

I don't think it's too bad for Superman to hope for less fan mail. He's a humble guy. He thinks his time would be better spent saving lives or even reporting on injustice than on reading fan mail. Especially since in this era, he didn't have the super-intellect yet, the one that allows him to read and respond to them all in a few minutes. It's a loss I don't like, but certainly one I can handle, especially since he eventually got that particular power back.
Don't get me wrong. There are defintely some bad moments in the Dan Jurgens era, but I don't think that's one of them.

I think this is one of those annual Christmas stories where Superman grudgingly opens his mail, full of desperate pleas for help from people around the country/world, and deigns to help out a handful of them.

Don't recognize the midget in the chauffer's cap, though.

The only correlation is that it's one of the few Jurgens panels I've got on the site.  Basically, every time Jurgens wrote Superman, he wrote of an angst-ridden ineffectual and powerless whiner and complainer who spent all his time moping about how he couldn't do anything.  Hence, my take for worst version of "Superman" ever.

If you could even call him that.

He did at least draw him pretty well, though, when inked by Art Thibert.  I remember liking his art on the "Krimson Kryptonite" storyline.  Of course it helps that it was written by Roger Stern, who's a real writer.
