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

John Bryne's Superman is easily, easily, EASILY the most overrated version of Superman. Easily.

The fact that DC has redone Superman's origin a billion times is a testament to how flawed Bryne's Superman was. By comparison, Frank Miller's Batman: Year One is STILL in continuity.

That's because, as overrated as Miller is, he didnt take a dump on things that made Batman interesting. Unfortunately, Bryne made Superman boring as hell.

Birthright was a much better origin story. It respected the past instead of slapping it in the face, and made old school Superman tropes modern.
