Default Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?

Just some quick support for Waid - I think Birthright is fantastic. He retells the origin in a new way, using Clark's world travels to offer something different than the usual Smallville stuff we've seen countless times. I also like Luthor as an astrobiologist and his connection to young Clark.

When reading Birthright, I figured Waid was hoping to lay the foundation for a movie. The book is very cinematic (especially an image like Supes protecting a kid with the giant S shield.) The appearance of the spider-like creature also seemed to be a wave to Jon Peters.
