Kind of why I don’t read DC anymore, aside from Morrison’s work. I don’t have a hard-on for the Silver Age. I understand that the nineties weren’t everyone’s cup of tea and that’s fine, too. But they happened.
Zero Hour happened.
Crisis on Infinite Earths happened.
Accept it and work with them. Don’t retconpunch things you don’t like because “things were better in the Silver Age.” You work for a company that deal with legacy characters. You got your start at said company by creating one of your own (even if she is a Mary Sue). You relaunched a team book that is composed of legacy characters.
Then they brought him back. I don’t know how and I don’t even care enough to check Wikipedia to find out.
For fun, I plotted a story where he completely screws up and all of Smallville discovers his secret identity (along with Superman’s) because he’s too stupid to wear a real fucking costume.
You stupid idiot. You wear jeans and a t-shirt to school and jeans and a t-shirt with the fucking Superman shield on it when you’re fighting crime. And people think Clark’s wearing a suit and glasses is a bad disguise.
“As someone who has not purchased or rated books by Geoff Johns, you might be interested in this book that he didn’t write and is, in fact, by another writer that you have actually purchased books written by.”
Wow, Geoff Johns is writing a story where Hal Jordan becomes super-awesomely powerful and saves the day? WOW THAT’S NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. WHAT’S NEXT, BARRY ALLEN IS A SAINT AND COMES BACK FROM THE DEAD TO BECOME THE SUPER-BEST FLASH?
