People gave Kreuk crap for her look as Lana, but I always thought a part asian woman could pull off the last name better anyways

You're about to relaunch Action Comics, one of DC Comics' longest-running titles. Will your revamp of Superman be as major as John Byrne's back in 1986?
Yeah, possibly. Probably as much, although he changed things quite considerably. I'm not using the costumes, just jeans and t-shirt, a Bruce Springsteen Superman. The original champion of the repressed Superman, the socialism and stuff, I wanted a bit of that.
I'm excited to hear this, and I imagine kurosawa should be too.

Especially the socialism part. I wonder if Clark will be sporting a Che t-shirt?

I've recently re-read the Golden Age Superman, from 1938 through the '40s, and from '38 until about '43, he really did come off as a socialist. He came off very much as anti-corporation, pro-regulation. In one issue, he destroyed an entire block of slum housing simply so the government would be forced to step in and rebuild it!

Well that's something that I think they should find a balance with.

Yes, Superman is more than just a superpowered cop, who catches criminals and throws them in jail.

He's more creative than that, makes more of an effort to help people get their lives back. He recognises that the Justice system is full of corruption too.

He is champion of the opressed, and opression is often what leads to criminality.

I do think having him cause mass destruction to public property, having ZERO respect for the law, and at one point dropping a guy to his death who tried to stab him while flying and saying he got exactly what he deserved... Is too much though.

I'm glad they moved on from the earliest stories tho, into a stronger Superman, both physically and mentally.

A combination of the two would be nice tho.

He's not a cop at all. Superheroes are essentially vigilantes -- powers or not -- unless their acts are sanctioned by the government.

The Justice League were sanctioned by the government when they appeared and saved the world.
