    Wow, some of these I want a mix of answers. *rats* Okay, Superman kills, but only as a last resort. *boyscout* The S on his chest is Kryptonian, for the El family. Martha is alive and she made his suit. I like the S on his cape, but it's not a deal breaker if it's not there. It should match the shield. Lois is both Clark's rival and friend and Lex is a rich criminal mastermind who also happens to be a mad scientist (That's way more fun than a suave business man) :rolleyes: Superman and Batman are friendly, not actually friends, per se. They do have an antagonistic relationship at times, but remain on good terms for the most part. :up: Superman's primary motivation is to help the helpless (and then justice) and Lois is the love of his life. :heart: The true persona .. this is hard but I'll choose Superman. :super: And yes, he is still haunted by the loss of his parents, planet and people. Metropolis is the city of tomorrow and they love having Superman around. He is primarily the protector of Metropolis and Earth. (and kicks villians and alien vlilians bums on the side) :cwink: Brainiac is a mix of two, Coluan and AI. Kryptonite exists in two forms, only. :cmad:

    That was fun. :yay:

    Well, here's my take:

    Superman kills only as a last resort *koff*Doomsday*koff*.
    Superman's logo on his chest is a Kryptonian symbol for the El family.
    Of the Kents, only Martha is alive.
    Superman's costume is Kryptonian (for lack of a description that better fits what I would really do with it).
    Superman's cape has no "S".
    Lois is a rival to Clark.
    Lex Luthor is a scientist who's crazy to some extent.
    Superman and Batman are in some parts antagonistic but still at good terms.
    Superman's primary motivation is to help the helpless.
    Superman's greatest love is Lois Lane.
    The true persona is Kal-El.
    Superman thinks about Krypton's destruction but isn't traumatized by it.
    Metropolis is the City of Tomorrow but help from Superman is appreciated.
    My primary approach to the character is the protector of Metropolis and Earth.
    Brainiac is a Coluan A.I.
    Kryptonite exists in green and red.

    Fair enough...adding to my previous list...

    Bizarro is a backwards-acting nuisance who thinks he's Superman.
    "...and the American Way"? Well...he was raised as an American, and believes in typical American values...but he has an obligation to protect the entire human race, not just one nation...and I don't see why he would trust the government as opposed to the people they're supposed to represent; I'm gonna have to say "No" only out of technicality.
    How powerful is Superman? Able to lift airliners and ships.
    Clark Kent is a fumbling coward.
    Are there other Kryptonians? Yep, the Phantom Zone criminals (although I'd probably pull a DCAU to bring in Supergirl).
    Superman's childhood included a typical Midwestern childhood, with no powers until puberty; in his teen years he went into training with a computer simulation of Jor-El.
    Superman's current love life involves a hopeless crush on Lois Lane.
    Superman's position on the JLA is co-leader/founding member.
    Krypton was a technological utopia.
    What would hurt Superman more? Attacking his loved ones.

    I like the Batman one, so it good to see another one for Supes here. Again, I only post just one answer instead of putting an x next to either of the answers. :)

    1) Does Superman kill?

    b) No (He's too powerful to ever think of doing that. At least IMHO.)


    2) Superman's logo on his chest is

    b) A Kryptonian symbol for the El family


    3) Superman's parents (Kents) are

    d) Unknown (I'm somewhat mixed on this. On one hand having both alive, give Superman the light & happiness of him. On the other hand, having both dead somewhat make him very tragic & seeing that his powers can't keep them life.)


    4) Superman's costume is

    c) Kryptonian


    5) Superman's cape is

    c) With no "S"


    6) Lois is

    c) In love with Clark


    7) Lex Luthor is a

    a) Rich criminal mastermind


    8) Superman & Batman are

    c) In some parts antagonistic but still at good terms


    9) Superman's primary motivation is

    c) To help the helpless (the Christ-figure portrayal can be great when used right)


    10) Superman's greatest love is

    a) Lois Lane (Are you kidding me?!? Lois all the way. 'Nuff said.) ;)


    11) The true persona is

    a) Superman (Like Batman, I felt Superman is who he really is. Kal-El is more like his real name, but when he put on the suit.)


    12) Superman

    c) Think about it but isn't traumatized by it


    13) Metropolis

    b) Is the city of Tomorrow and help from Superman is appreciated


    14) Your primary approch of the character is

    b) The protector of Metropolis and Earth


    15) Brainiac is

    d) A mix of 2 answers (Robot & humanoid)


    16) Kryptonite exists in

    b) Green and another color wouldn't be a problem (Red is another one I like.)


    17) Bizarro is

    a) a brain-dead zombie clone


    18) "...and the American Way?"

    c) No: he protects the entire human race, not just one nation (He may grew up American, but that doesn't mean he just fight for the American Way. He fight for the whole earth way. I think the American thing was add at the time World War II happend, where people got too patriotic. And I'm patriotic. Just not too crazy thought. :yellow:)


    19) How powerful is Superman?

    d) Able to shove around planets without breaking a sweat


    20) Clark Kent is

    b) An unassuming everyman

    23) Superman's current love life involves

    a) A hopeless crush on Lois Lane


    24) Superman's position on the JLA is

    a) Leader (Having someone on the team that is perhaps more powerful than anyone on the team is enough to make him the leader. Period.) ;)


    25) Krypton was

    a) A technological utopia


    26) What would hurt Superman more?

    a) Kryptonite & c) Attacking loved ones

    Hey, this looks like fun Clarky! Here's my answers with comments. I figure a lot of people will disagree with me but they are just my opinions:

    1) Does Superman kill?
    a) Yes
    b) No
    c) only as a last resort

    I don't like the idea of Superman killing ever, but it does create some interesting story possibilities if he doesn't have any other options. Particularly, how he deals with his feelings in the aftermath.

    2) Superman's logo on his chest is
    a) just a "S" standing for Superman
    b) a kryptonian symbol for the El family
    c) a kryptonian "S"

    I think the whole costume's should be thought of as a Kryptonian design.

    3) superman's parents (Kents) are
    a) dead
    b) alive
    c) half alive : only Martha
    d) unknown

    One thing I don't like about Bryne's reboot is, it seemed to me that he systematically went through and removed every hardship from Superman's life. Krypton seemed like such an unappealing place that I wondered if Kal-El would really want to live there. It seems implied that it is unusual for a husband to tell his wife that he loves her. You almost feel good for Kal-El that he is spared that existence and instead grows up with the Kents. And of course the Kents are both kept alive ready and able to provide support whenever Clark needs. I think having Johnathan die is a powerful way to link Clark to humanity and help us relate to him.

    4) Superman's costume is
    a) Ma Kent's work with efficient material
    b) "spandex"
    c) kryptonian

    Yeah, I think the costume should be kryptonian just because it makes the sheer outlandish of it actually seem somewhat feasible. It's an alien design. I live in the midwest and I can guarantee you that there are very few midwestern mothers who would send their grown up sons out the door with their underwear outside of their pants! :oldrazz:


    5) Superman's cape is
    a) with a big yellow "S"
    b) with a small yellow "S"
    c) with no "S"
    d) pink

    I not a big fan of the Alex Ross gigantic "S." I prefer the Curt Swan sized "S."

    6) Lois is
    a) rival with ClarK
    b) friend with Clark
    c) in love with Clark

    At first at least.

    7) Lex Luthor is a
    a) rich criminal mastermind
    b) crazy scientific


    I think a mix would of the two might be good.


    8) Superman & Batman are
    a) best friends
    b) friends
    c) in some parts antagonistic but still at good terms
    d) just colleagues with many/a few differences
    e) almost enemies who are just on the same side

    I don't mean campy, Superfriends-style friends. The way I imagine these two are like two old warhorses who have been through many battles together. They have the utmost respect for each other and I bond that they don't have with anyone else. They are both orphans who lived through horrific tragedies and are now trying to make the world a better place. I'm NOT a fan of the petty squables that they are often written as having. It just makes them look like they are still in junior high.

    9) Superman's primary motivation is
    a) revenge
    b) justice
    c) to help the helpless


    I highlighted justice too because that should be a part of his motivation but ultimately helping the helpless should be what Superman's about. I think that gets back to the core of what Siegal and Shuster were after. IMO DC has lost its way a bit with Superman. If you asked most people what Superman's defining attribute is they would say "he's a boyscout." I think there's something wrong if that is his defining attribute. To me, Superman's defining attribute should be his COMPASSION. There's just something different about him when it comes to the suffering of others. He empathizes with their pain in a way that most people don't. People tend to have a certain disdain for people they perceive to be generic "goody-goodies." No one looks down their nose at a guy who spends his free time with AIDS patients in Africa.


    10) Superman's greatest love is
    a) Lois Lane
    b) Lana Lang
    c) Wonderwoman
    d) someone else

    Who else? :cwink:

    11) The true persona is
    a) Superman
    b) Clark Kent
    c) Kal El
    d) something in the middle

    This is a big one for me. I'm just not comfortable with the idea of Superman merely being a facade, disguise, or carefully crafted public image that Clark Kent has to pretend to be. Superman is the one hero for whom there should be NO PRETENSE. When you see Superman, you see the man that the little boy from Smallville grew up to be. To me, taking away the idea that Clark is a nobody, robs the Superman mythos of one of its most fun aspects. In the post crisis version his life really does seem perfect. He was a star sports jock in high school. When he grows up as Clark he wins awards for journalism, is popular around the office, and even marries the girl of his dreams. And did I mention when he's Superman, he gets parades thrown in his honor? It is much more fun to see the shy, awkward guy, that no one respects, be the world's greatest hero!

    12) Superman
    a) has got over the destruction of Krypton
    b) is still haunted by the disappearance of his homeworld
    c) think about it but isn't traumatized by it

    I think this could make for some great characterization but too often I think writers are scared to go this direction. It seems like such a prevalent opinion that Superman's life has to remain perfect and he can't be allowed to struggle with stuff like this. The Superman I imagine would be DEEPLY affected by the knowledge that billions of lives had been lost.

    13) Metropolis
    a) was and remains paradise on earth
    b) is the city of Tomorrow and help from Superman is appreciated
    c) normal big American city + a lot of freaks & extra-territorial threats

    14) Your primary approch of the character is
    a) the superhero who battles villains
    b) the protector of metropolis and Earth
    c) the action hero with sci-fi / E.T. background
    d) the man from Kansas with good education and superpowers

    15) Brainiac is
    a) a coluan
    b) a kryptonian
    c) a machine
    d) a A.I
    e) a living being
    d) a mix of 2 answers

    My favorite Braniac interpretation would probably be the animated one from Krypton. However, I would be open to different interpretations.

    16) Kryptonite exists in
    a) Green only
    b) Green and another color wouldn't be a problem
    c) Green, blue, red, pink, redish violet, there exists a lot of it.

    Green and Red because I'm in a Christmasy mood! :oldrazz:


    Heh, those were some fun questions (plus it gave me chance to use different colored fonts!)!

    :supes: :up: !

    I love it in Dan Gilroy's Superman lives script, Last days of Krypton, smallville and superman tas where General Zod and Brainiac cause the destruction of Krypton

    26) What would hurt Superman more?
    a) Kryptonite
    b) Magic
    c) attacking loved ones
    d) psychological torture
    f) red sun energy and concetrated light
    it shows that even the most powerful man has powerful weaknesses

    I'm a fan of the golden(Early Seigel and shuster stories) and Silver age Superman and I'm influenced by the Donner/singer films, Last Days of Krypton, Smallville, Ruby Spear's animated superman series, losh animated series, Frank Miller's Dark Knight Universe Superman, bIRTHRIGHT Superman, the timmiverse superman and the batman animated series superman so that influenced my votes.

    thats why I'm making a superman fan fic

    1) Does Superman kill?
    (c) only as a last resort - Threats Like Doomsday at first could never be reasoned with...if it was between saving the planet and killing I could understand the choice...

    1) Does Superman kill?
    a) Yes
    b) No
    c) only as a last resort

    If there really is no other option to stop the villain, such as knocking him/her unconscious, or turning to Green Lantern to encapsulate the villain in question, or something like that.

    2) Superman's logo on his chest is
    a) just a "S" standing for Superman
    b) a kryptonian symbol for the El family
    c) a kryptonian "S"

    Where's the option from Birthright, where it was the Kryptonian symbol for hope? Option B seemed to be the closest answer to that.

    3) superman's parents (Kents) are
    a) dead
    b) alive
    c) half alive : only Martha
    d) unknown

    4) Superman's costume is
    a) Ma Kent's work with efficient material
    b) "spandex"
    c) kryptonian

    5) Superman's cape is
    a) with a big yellow "S"
    b) with a small yellow "S"
    c) with no "S"
    d) pink

    6) Lois is
    a) rival with ClarK
    b) friend with Clark
    c) in love with Clark

    All three, really. A, B, and C lead into each other quite well.

    7) Lex Luthor is a
    a) rich criminal mastermind
    b) crazy scientific

    A criminal mastermind who built his empire on his scientific genius?

    8) Superman & Batman are
    a) best friends
    b) friends
    c) in some parts antagonistic but still at good terms
    d) just colleagues with many/a few differences
    e) almost enemies who are just on the same side

    9) Superman's primary motivation is
    a) revenge
    b) justice
    c) to help the helpless

    10) Superman's greatest love is
    a) Lois Lane
    b) Lana Lang
    c) Wonderwoman
    d) someone else

    11) The true persona is
    a) Superman
    b) Clark Kent

    c) Kal El
    d) something in the middle

    Both real aspects of the same person.

    12) Superman
    a) has got over the destruction of Krypton
    b) is still haunted by the disappearance of his homeworld
    c) think about it but isn't traumatized by it

    13) Metropolis
    a) was and remains paradise on earth
    b) is the city of Tomorrow and help from Superman is appreciated
    c) normal big American city + a lot of freaks & extra-territorial threats

    14) Your primary approch of the character is
    a) the superhero who battles villains
    b) the protector of metropolis and Earth
    c) the action hero with sci-fi / E.T. background
    d) the man from Kansas with good education and superpowers

    A man from Kansas with good, honest ideals, who finds himself protecting Earth and Metropolis upon coming into his superpowers.

    15) Brainiac is
    a) a coluan
    b) a kryptonian
    c) a machine
    d) a A.I
    e) a living being
    d) a mix of 2 answers

    A living, Coluan A.I.

    16) Kryptonite exists in
    a) Green only
    b) Green and another color wouldn't be a problem
    c) Green, blue, red, pink, redish violet, there exists a lot of it.

    17) Bizarro is
    a) a brain-dead zombie clone
    b) a backwards-acting nuissance who thinks he's Superman
    c) the ruler of a cube-shaped Bizarro World
    d) one of a whole race of Bizarros

    A backwards wacko, but he doesn't think he's Superman at all. I look at the way Bizarro existed before Infinite Crisis for an example of a good Bizarro. Answer B is the closest to that.

    18) "...and the American Way?"
    a) Yes: he was raised as an American, and believes in typical American values
    b) Yes: he fully supports the United States government no matter what
    c) No: he protects the entire human race, not just one nation
    d) No: he does not trust the government

    19) How powerful is Superman?
    a) able to lift tanks and train cars, but not much else
    b) able to lift airliners and ships
    c) able to lift continents if he really really tries
    d) able to shove around planets without breaking a sweat

    I'd look to Byrne's MoS for a good level of strength for Superman; easily lifting that enormous space plane and landing it safely, but he couldn't lift a continent (there's a huge difference between the last 3 answers. Couldn't you have put down a few more possible options to fill in those gigantic gaps?). Again, option B is the closest to describing how I feel about that topic.

    20) Clark Kent is
    a) a fumbling coward
    b) an unassuming everyman
    c) a suave, fearless reporter
    d) a troubled country boy

    He can be a great fearless reporter if he has to be and the situation calls for it, but is otherwise unassuming. S:TAS was a fantastic example of that.

    21) Are there other Kryptonians?
    a) Kara Zor-El
    b) the Kandorians
    c) the Phantom Zone criminals
    d) a combination of the above

    I'd just stick with Zod and Kara.

    22) Superman's childhood included
    a) adventures with the Legion of Super-Heroes
    b) a friendship with Lex Luthor
    c) training with a computer simulation of Jor-El
    d) a typical Midwestern childhood, with no powers until later on
    e) a combination of the above

    23) Superman's current love life involves
    a) a hopeless crush on Lois Lane
    b) trying to decide between Lois and Lana
    c) happily married
    d) estranged from his true love
    3) having a child

    24) Superman's position on the JLA is
    a) leader
    b) co-leader/founding member
    c) part-time member
    d) unaffiliated

    25) Krypton was
    a) a technological utopia
    b) an emotionless hell-world (not bias-sounding towards that story at all)
    c) unstable like Earth, just with better technology
    26) What would hurt Superman more?
    a) Kryptonite
    b) Magic
    c) attacking loved ones
    d) psychological torture (like the Black Mercy)
    e) Batman with prep-time
