Default Re: How would you make Superman Relevant?

He already is...

Superman is a fictional character that represents a fantasy we have about someone swooping in and saving us... from small crimes, from major natural disasters, and from our own complete incompetance as a human race.

I don't see how that is ever not going to be relevant.

The more important question is how you make Superman 'likeable'. Which I think has been the main problem.

Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
