    It’s easy for me because I don’t have any particular nostalgia or affection for Supes, but I see this argle-bargle around him more as death throes than rebirth. His legacy is more as an ideal than a character, and one-trick ponies just can’t really survive outside their specialized niches. It feels like Supes evolved to suit the Cold War more than anything else, with his “truth, justice, and the American way.” For better or worse, we’re no longer in the Cold War, and the American way is no longer what it looked like back then.

    • The American Way is like Tinkerbell: it dies because people stop believing in it, not vice versa. And if truth and justice are one-trick ponies, then I wanna ride them all the way into the sunset.

What do you think?
