if not, i think i'd like to write it.

I always liked the perspective the animated series (and Justice League) put on it: when not de-powered, Superman has to do everything gingerly. If he even shakes hands with someone using what he would consider his "normal" strength level, he'd rip their arm off.
Sadly, DC is too busy trying to recapture some bastardized form of what made the 70s so silly to actually do a new story.

I should also add that he was so wimpy in Superman Returns because there was such a massive amount of kryptonite, which was killing him very rapidly.
Green kryptonite doesn't exactly take away his powers, but kills him. He loses his powers as part of the overall weakening effect.
anarky wrote:Your idea for training with Batman is a good one. Maybe Superman could lose control of his powers. Not in any way like we've seen before, but maybe he loses them at random times. Then he gets his ass kicked by a couple of hoodlums and realizes he needs something more than what he learned playing football.
Just watch the movie - you'll get the Cliff's Notes version of all the mediocrity.anarky wrote:Read Volume 1 of All-Star Superman this morning. Holy balls, that was an awesome read. Truly a "mature" story in the way that most people don't understand is the true meaning of the word. Picked up Volume 2. Honestly, no matter how iffy I am about the whole weird "Batman's son and time travel and Batman Inc" wackiness, between this and his run on New X-Men, I really want to read it (even if I have to tell myself it's not the same universe as the Grant/Breyfogle Batman in order to swallow the strangeness).
