If superman wears his kryptonian armour in superman #1, how come he's still wearing jeans?Every other heroe get's a new costume and he's in jeans?

The first few issues of Grant Morrison's Action Comics, where Superman wears the jeans, is set a little over 5 years in the past. This is when Superman is only beginning to put together his "costume", which will come about later on, as evidenced in the first Justice League arc (set a few months later) and in the pages of the Superman title (set in the present day).

I like Jim Lee's Art but I never cared for his Superman.

The cover isn't bad plus its nice to see some of those evil robots are back from the old cartoon series.

Superman in JUSTICE LEAGUE #1...



Page from ACTION COMICS #1... http://www.fastcompany.com/1775787/dc-comics-grant-morrison-action-comics-superman



"I felt the weight of history with this one," says Morrison in his soft-spoken Glaswegian lilt. "I wanted to do something that was as much a part of these times as when (Action Comics) first came out. Superman has always been the champion of the oppressed. I wanted to move away from the standard superhero tales and in the direction of folk tales in the vein of a Paul Bunyan."

In the revised version, featuring art by Rags Morales (penciling), Rick Bryant (inking), Brad Anderson (color) and Patrick Brosseau (lettering), Morrison pares down the convoluted narrative that began overshadowing the Superman myth. "It had become a pro-wrestling contest between characters-- who was stronger, faster, bigger," he says. "I wanted to evoke a more universal human Superman, who was less of a costumed figure representing patriotic authority, and more about struggles on the street."

The exclusive page 18 panel shown above is the first major shot of the Man of Steel transitioning to alter ego Clark Kent--sans his trademark horn-rimmed glasses--after thwarting trouble in Metropolis. Superman's fighting crime, of course, but the authorities are suspicious of his powers. He's misunderstood. He's different.

I don't think making superman more human is a good idea. Getting  rid of everything that makes superman the greatest superhero ever doesn't help.A young, brooding, unsure superman isn't 'super'! He sounds more like the average human.

He needs to be more than 'man'.
He needs to be super man.

Judging from the Superman in the relaunched Justice League #1, I expect more Superdickery.

The more Morrison gabs on about cynicism and realism, the more I realize just how out of touch the actual writers are with everyday people.

But, hey, worse that happens is that it ends up a critical success and commercial failure like the revamped Galactica that was dark, cynical, and real...
