Re: 1938 Superman. The One To Adapt?
Siegel/Shuster Superman should absolutely be used for Supes' characterization. Not to mention that Birthright's Superman is in many ways an updated version of the S & S character.
Its time to stop portraying Supes as this "Big Blue Boy Scout". He should absolutely be the standard of how to behave, but he dosent have to be squeaky clean. Nor was he inteded to be.
