 For me it is probably be a toss up between the Lois & Clark version and the animated series version just because during the nineties they seemed to think that "humanizing" him means stripping his strength back down to golden age levels. If we're judging this based on how he is treated, maybe the 1975 television re-inactment of the play.

Top 3:

1. Dead Superman (or maybe they did him a favor?)
2. Mullet Superman
3. Keith Giffen Superman (DC Comics Presents featuring the Creeper)

Perhaps you should widen the discussion by considering the "worst version of Sueprboy and/or Superman"?

Pocket Universe Supermurderer Superman.

The Reign of Superman I actually liked, and I think that from Exile in Space to Death of Superman, the stories were solid.

TV Shows Lois and Clark and Superman: Animated Series were very good in concept and execution, sometimes with bad storylines (like the super marriage), but that versions of the characterr was inspired in the John Byrne´s revamp. Ant the TV serries improved Byrne´s ideas, making them work.

So Byrne´s the worse Superman ever.

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.

I agree but the 1990's Superman make be a little worst in many ways!!!

I am glad those monstrosities are behind us.
