Zeph: The reason Supes didn't use his powers?
had nothing to do with Superman, had everything to do with his shitty writers. "Superman isn't relevant, anymore. Let's kill him!"
no, not brilliant. Superman wouldn't BE Irrelevant if you were a competent writer, asshole.

I am a Superman newb you all will be laughing at from the top of that mountain.
Just a few questions
Isn't he supposed to be just as intelligent as Batman?
Isn't the only reason Batman "gets away" with "beating Supes" the fact that Superman would try his best not to kill him?
If Superman wanted to he could just obliterate the entire city block Batman was hiding in right?

The reason Batman continually beats Superman has nothing to do with 'in story' ideas.
it's simple: Frank Miller did it in DKR, and it was awesome, so awesome that anybody who came after had to try the same thing.
so awesome that it became cliche.
Superman would destroy Batman in a one-on-one fight, even if Batman WERE fighting dirty.

Before the infinite crisis it is. It retcons Man of Steel.
But after the incoming crisis we'll get a new history.

Yeah, in the intermediate between "Infinite" and "Final" Crisis, I wouldn't get too hung up on what is and isn't canon, because it could all easily change next summer.

Exile At The Edge Of Eternity is pretty epic. It's short, but it's epic in scope. Check it out. It's written and drawn by everybody's favorite former escape artists-turned-awesome comic book guy.

Monday's a holiday, correct? So is the post office shipping one day later than usual?

Yeah it comes out this Wednesday, no delay. The only veterans comic books care about are Sgt. Rock and Captain America.

I see a "Definitive Comic Book Characters Who Are/Were Soldiers" thread on the horizon.

Yeah Flash Thompson served in Viet Nam but it's never mentioned again due to it being something that would make him ancient, so now he just served overseas somewhere. That's a crash course in comic book characters who were soldiers right there...

So Superman has participated in wars too before right? Did he get in on the punching Hitler in the face action that was going on back then?

Is it worth the buy?
Hellion, post: 1862563 wrote:
9 issues out already.
Estimated total cost about $150-200 I suppose, depending on demand.
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

Hold up! All-Star Superman #9 actually came out? And we're not all dead? The did it! They put the issues out! The comic system works!!!!!11
Why were Superman and Batman fighting in the first place? Because Luthor gave Wayne/Batman the Kryptonite? It seemed like a skipped a page or something, especially since it was skipping back and forth to the dinner meeting between the two of them and the "fight".
Speaking of the former, what exactly did Bruce give Luthor? I don't remember it being mentioned again.
