That's a good counterargument Tempest.

I think the best writers of Superman are Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Elliot S Maggin, Alan Moore, Joe Casey, Paul Dini, and maybe Jeph Loeb (For All Seasons) and even John Byrne. I also think they have produced the most celebrated and influential works on the character.

I also loved Man of Steel for the most part but the last third really felt off for me. I have planned on tracking down the novelization, for more details regarding the plot. Hopefully it turns me around on it like you say.

I can't help how I feel though. And Superman's character just felt off for me. Like I just didn't see it. Cavill captured his powerful presence, but I just didn't see the warmth (save for when he meets back with his mother, and in the interrogation room with Lois). It's definitely hard not to feel disappointed with MOS, only cause I was expecting so much more.
