The World’s Greatest Superhero

My favorite hero, Superman, has just been ranked first in IGN’s 100 Greatest Comic Book Heroes list. He also just renounced his American citizenship in Action Comics #900, a book that was apparently a bit of a let down for some (I’m still buying it). I’m assuming Clark Kent is still as American as apple pie, so this headline-grabbing plot line isn’t as insane as you would think.

But I thought this would be a perfect time to link to my old hang out, Better Than Sliced Bread, where I first espoused my manlove for Supes.

It’s also a way for me to post a question that in no way needs to be answered – you know, the type of question that comic book nerds will spend hours answering. I know there’s a lot of Superman haters out there, but if we could choose any major superhero to become real, wouldn’t we choose Superman?
