The Electric Superman was the worst.

Whiney dumb hick from the Loeb era. (though I liked some aspects of Loebs run he just kept on going with the farm boy persona)

electricblue superman was pretty dumb (what did norm macdonald say about his costume change again???)



and of course the Byrne one was pretty horrible. seriously WHAT WAS THE POINT??? nice move DC. (though I guess it did increase sales over a short period of time)

 Technically, aren't the electric and hick and long hair and whatever else they thought would be a good idea during the nineties all the same version? The Byrne version?

If you needed a good reason to stay off drugs kids, go back and read some mid to late nineties Superman comics. They'll scare you straight! Cheesy Because drug use is the only explaination for why someone would think these things are a good idea!

It's like New Coke, except they brought back the old one after only a few months

Lesson:  Don't eff with a classic

Do you guys know why I think the 90´s version is better than John Byrne´s? Because Jurgens, Kesel, Stern, Ordway, Simonson etc wrote bad stories, but they didn´t destroyed the Superman character like Byrne did. So their Superman was still a loser, but they were writing what Byrne established and was editorial imposed. Also, they were - even before the Loeb´s revamp, Waid´s Kingdon Come and Morrison´s JLA -, trying to rebuilt a kind of Superman mythology. Not the classic one, but they tried to do something where Byrne left empty. There was some kind of failed reconstruction there. The Superman family. The kryptonian conection. The human interest stories. All failed, but they were trying to do something good.

Byrne just succeeded in destroy.

As in portrayal? Rucka's Superman hands down. This version (while under the mental projections of Max Lord) did not care about killing innocents as long as it meant that he could take his revenge upon Doomsday.

Agree completely ug!!!.Everything superheroic Rucka gets hold of turns to crap!! The TAS animated on the other  the hand is one of my favorites.


Electric Supes wasn't really Supes at all.

Rucka did a good job with Ed Brubaker on Gothan Central. And I liked some of his Superman, even if the general story was crap. Specially the Mxyzptlk tales.
