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?
