Default Choose your favourite Evil Superman

Hey DC fans,

there have been plenty of evil versions of Big Blue, which one's your
favourite.

Suggestions, (and yes, I meant to put in a poll but clicked too fast, damn browser error !)

Ultraman, Superman Prime, Earth 2 evil Superman + any others you can think of

(I suppose you could count Cyborg Superman and Bizarro)


My current fav has to be Earth 2's evil Superman, because he's such a
badass, like a less crazy, more vicious version of Superman-Prime.

I mean, he ripped off Atom's arm and beat him down with it, OUCH !



This guy doesn't take any **** at all ! Hope they don't kill him off.

I prefer the Supermen who aren't really 'bad' but act differently for different reasons like in Red Son where he took over the world because in how he was raised it seemed like the best course of action.

Good call. Red Son Superman isn't really evil, in fact the bulk of his actions
are noble and actually improve the world. He just can't see the bigger
picture.

Well really though, what makes a better story? An invincible jerk takes over the world cause he's a jerk or someone with limited life experiences but good intentions and unlimited power tries to 'fix' the world?

IMO Red Son is a great Superman story. One of the big underlying questions of Superman is "why doesn't he just fix the world?" because really, at the end of the day as DC's most powerful superhero he could if he really wanted to, and Red Son is all about him trying to do just that.


I really enjoy the elseworlds approach to Superman alternate views of how the DC universe would have turned out if Superman's life had been a little different. Really enjoyed "The Nail" . Found the Dark Knight Returns version of Superman kind of depressing, that he still had good intentions but wasn't able to make much difference except propping up the status quo.

I think an interesting story would have been what Superman, Wonder Woman and their Daughter did after Miller's Dark Knight Strikes Again.
In fact, a Frank Miller Superman story, (as in a story with Superman as the main character) would probably make an interesting read.

Red Son Superman is my favorite "evil" Superman as well. Such a great story.

Lord Superman is cool.

Personally, I dislike Superman Prime, because he's a petty douche bag (and yes, kicking Krypto is just wrong on so many levels).

Still gotta go with Evil Earth 2 Supes, because he may be evil and tears people to pieces

but he's still nice to his ma and pa !



I guess I like my badguys with a slight possibility of redeemability, whereas
Superman Prime's just thoroughly despicable, childish and a jerk. I'm always waiting for someone to come along and kick his ass. Whereas Evil Earth 2 Superman, he does bad stuff, but he does look cool doing it. You could like the guy, if he wasn't so damn destructive.

^^ at least he WAS nice to ma and pa (If you read the latest issue you know the deal)

My favorite evil superman is the one who wasn't broken or corrupted by life events; he is what he is because that's who he was always meant to be. Which is weird cause I usually prefer the opposite in my characters; I always prefer the element of choice over predestination.

My man Ultraman!

Yeah, we're waaayy behind on EArth 2 down here, but I've heard
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
that Supes kills Pa Kent
so now he's really irredeemable ! I'm still going with Earth 2 evil Superman as
my fave, but Ultraman is very cool, I've always liked him.

Although I have to say that the fact that he's vulnerable to sunlight in Forever evil is just stupid. I mean, I get that he's meant to be the opposite to Superman, but really ? Sunlight ? That's just dumb ! A couple of smurfs could
kick his ass, if he fights them on a clear day.

For a great depiction of Ultraman, you should check out Grant Morrison's JLA Earth 2. Great art, and an interesting story. Even though Supes and Ultraman don't actually fight, it's still a great read.

check it out:

Yeah, Morrison's Ultraman was the best. The guy was a f**king monster.

Totally dude ! The "Forever Evil" Ultraman is a pussy by comparison,
I'm still incredulous about the sunlight thing. I liked the ending of Forever Evil,
but the sunlight thing is still lame, there were so many ways they could
have taken Ultraman out.

Anyway, while evil Earth 2 Superman still is my fave, Ultraman is damn cool
as an evil Superman.

Really looking forward to this....

Same here. Justice Lord Superman is my favorite. The best of the best. For a moment, I thought Superman of earth 1, during infinite crisis,was going to be a Justice Lord Superman, only with gray hairs, everything was already here, coming from a different time era where morality was still very strong he could have snapped and gone JLord-ish. It did not go that way in the end, but anyway, Justice Lord Superman is really the best.

Well I'll be damned, it wasn't Superman, it was Bizarro all along.

Funny, Tom Taylor hinted that I'd be surprised by the ending,
when I met him at a comic convention here in NZ. He wasn't wrong.
It's such an obvious answer to why this Superman was evil, and
served Darkseid, but I don't know anyone who thought of it.
Pretty masterful storytelling, we all got sucked into evil Superman
so much that no one realized it wasn't Superman at all.
I can live with that !
