Default Re: Why Does Frank Miller Hate Superman?

Superman doesn't appeal to a lot of folks who are legendary comicbook guys...

take denny oneil for example! He did his share of Superman stories, but it was a job.

When he wrote Batman it was a passion. When he wrote Green Lantern Green Arrow it was to be socially concious!

There are a lot of people who just don't like superheroes w/ super abilities!

Ever since the 90's we have kind of expected our heroes to be morally, psychologically flawed

Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
