Yup.

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.
True - but what most people do not know is that funnily enough, DC already started to contradict "Year One" the same month the last part of it came out(!).

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.
Yup, but those *******s had nothing better to do than to ***** about the soul aura and Superman being a vegetarian.
