    Superman IV: 30 Years Later

    Superman IV: 30 Years Later By John Saavedra   At its very best — and this is a really big stretch — you might call Superman IV: The Quest for Peace a superhero romp. Perhaps if it had been marketed as a Superman parody, we would remember this movie...

    Multiworst: Six of the darkest, bleakest, most despairing alternate Earths in comics

    Why Superman is Overrated….

    Superman Reborn for a New Generation

    Superman Reborn for a New Generation   Superman’s had a pretty rough go at it. For years he’s been a bit of a joke among fans; the “Big Blue Boy Scout” mentality wasn’t viewed as a positive when heroes like Wolverine and The Punisher were industry best-sellers. Writers seemed...
