What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
Okay, so it may or may not be well known that Mark Waid had problems with John Byrne's 1986 retelling of Supes' origin in the MAN OF STEEL origin. He tried unsuccessfully IMO to erase the Byrne stuff.
What were those problems he had with it?
And also, who the hell does he think he is? Birthright was just okay and the MOS miniseries is like, legendary! The art is MOS is way better and the story is a lot better.
So, what were his issues?
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
