Default Re: What's So Bad About Superman Returns?

You know, when I first spotted this thread, the first thing I thought of was that Superman story from just over 10 years ago: "What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?", whose central villain was a guy named Manchester Black.

Quote:
Sadistic and cynical, Manchester Black waged a vicious war against Superman. He believed that Superman was "corny" and "unreal". The ideals championed and espoused by the Man of Steel stood in direct contrast to the grim, gritty environments of Manchester Black, and seeped into his extremist attitudes and agenda.
