Default Re: birthright or secret origin?

Birthright, but only narrowly.

There's more about Birthright narratively that I like than in SO, but outside of Yu's rendering of Krypton and its populace, technology, etc. I don't much care for the art. SO's version of Krypton is a little TOO much Donner homaging for my liking on that front, but I tend to like Frank's art better, Zombie Christopher Reeve and all (I even like the idea of a fat Parasite, in spite of that absurd Simpsons Treehouse of Horror origin Johns gave him). But in the end Birthright still edges out SO for me.
