Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
In my opinion, one of the things John Byrne and DC got right was restoring Superman's uniqueness as the Sole Survivor of the dead planet Krypton. Unfortunately DC had to go and ruin it later, by bringing back Kara Zor-El, Zod and several other kryptonians.
Dreams save us. Dreams lift us up and transform us. And on my soul I swear: until my dream where dignity, honor, and justice becomes the reality we all share I'll never stop fighting. Ever - Superman
