    Yeah, magic is one of Superman's several achilles heels. However, when its a mind-controlled Superman, or an
    evil clone of Superman, or Ultraman fighting somebody I never take it seriously.
    Hell, Batman beat Superman with just a tiny piece of kryptonite when Poison Ivy mind controlled him.

    It's different if it's Superman at full strength and in full control. Superman under an evil spell or an evil clone......meh.

    Having said that, Superman Prime is a different story, because he's such an *******, but also so powerful.
    Probably one of the worst DC villains (worst as in nastiest) after Zoom (who's powerful and a real prick)
    and the Joker, who has no powers, but is the worst villain of all.

    Anyone who beats up or kills (the guy never stays dead) Superman Prime is okay with me, even if it's Squirrel girl or someone like that
    (yes, I know, she's from Marvel).

    Still, good art in that comic. Like the new look Skeletor, although I was never really a fan of Masters of the Universe, even back in the day.
    Thanks for posting it.

    Superman prime was such entertaining villain to me.That guy would cry and then kill,then cry and whine,it was fun reading that stuff.
    That was one sick villain.
    I got to get some of the back issues.

    Of course someone like that should lose in the end,but you did not find his craziness entertaining?:woot:
    Come on,you have to admit his stories were crazzzy.

    Hmmmm.....maybe ? With a multiverse again, sooner or later I'm sure
    he'll rear his ugly head.

    His stories are pretty nuts, although if you like evil Superman,
    check out Earth 2, Superman has become enslaved by Darkseid and
    has gone absolutely nuts, like this....

    Kind of like Superman Prime, but Apokolips-i-fied !

    Dude, are you f*&^ing kidding ?

    It's like we're going to change everything about the character and still call him by the same name. Marvel really has run out of ideas.

    They should take a cue from the Electric red/blue Superman, and just not bother !

    I guess I can live with a different person taking over as Superman of Earth 2, and the fact he's not caucasian doesn't really matter, because he's still Kryptonian, and he's still got the values that make Superman...Superman.
    In fact he's got ties to Kal El's family. And it's been built up over a credible story arc. So really, it isn't that big a stretch.

    But a female Thor ? That's worse than the whole Mandarin plot twist in Iron Man 3. Well that's IMO anyway.

    Remember alot folks have problems changing of wally west too.

    I don't like the wally west change either,but it looks like the thor name is just a title and it will be a different person.
    This change seems more like what happen in earth 2 like you mention because i heard and read that the original thor is still around and will be in the comic with her.
    He will not have his hammer but another weapon.
    Maybe thor's sister,or someone else,but what DC did with wally west is worst.
    Do you agree?

    I'm not a Thor fan (although I did enjoy Simonson's Thor in the 80's) but this doesn't seem like a sensible direction for the character.

    Why not have an all new female asgardian character who can carry a book by herself ?


    If Superman switches gender (for more than a couple of issues) I'd be annoyed.
    I mean, that's why they have Power Girl and Supergirl , right ?
    Oh yeah, and Wonder Woman.
    Give female characters their own stories.

    So is her name also Thor..?

    If not, then she's not "the new Thor". She's the new God of Thunder.

    Dude, I'm on board for an Afro-American Captain America or a Hispanic Cap, or best of all, a Native American Captain America.
    Also, Sam Wilson is a good choice to replace Steve, a very natural successor.

    Why the hell not ! The idea should be that Cap is a symbol not just a guy,
    it's about time that Cap stopped looking like the master race.

    (Interesting comparison, Superman could pass for a number of ethnic backgrounds, Steve Rogers.....not so much).

    As for Marvel's other changes.......welll I've always liked Dr. Strange, but otherwise ....yawn ! I mean Medusa ? Come on.

    Deathlok had a cool run back in the 90's, well drawn and action packed, very enjoyable.

    Otherwise, the whole female Thor thing..... not my cup of tea.
