Default Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?

In The Man of Steel, Clark Kent, the real person, creates the new Clark Kent as a disguise to hide his super self with glasses, his hair slicked back and stoops a tad.

The Golden Age Superman was a social crusader and also was iconically very patriotic, aiding service men and fighting for his country was important to him.

The Modern Age Superman by John Byrne was no more a "Government stooge" than the patriotic Golden Age version. He was a crusader for social justice, he was dealing with corruption in the big business establishment in high places against Luthor and LexCorp, and was not hesitate to get himself involved in a social and political issue. He was shown at the White House discussing and debating with President Ronald Reagan in Legends (1987).

Half-man, half-bat.

You've convinced me. Well played, sir. It's great to debate with someone who has the hard facts to back up what they say
