    I believe over half of these are going to be in the ‘main’ DC Universe as of this coming fall.

    Perhaps, but many of them aren’t actually superman either. Is that Captain Marvel? He wasn’t even a DC superhero to begin with! What is the original poster thinking?

    No one has made any statements that indicate Captain Marvel was a DC character to begin with. What are you thinking?

    So when are they going to power down these guys to manageable levels?

    I don’t think it should be about the character’s power level. It’s really about the creative teams ability to tell a great story.
    Morrison’s All Star Superman was more powerful then most versions of the character, and the story was awesome. Likewise, I’ve read some terrible superman stories, and again it’s got nothing to do with power levels.

    The point is that if one hero can lift the earth and take bazooka shots to the eyes villains need to match that to be a challenge. Villains bleed over on other heroes which in turn need to have enough power to fight them.

    It’s just getting out of hand, and from what I can tell: realism (kind of) is currently king when it comes to comic book related entertainment. I don’t think it would hurt to power them down a tad.

    Superman has actually been powered up and down several times over the years. In the 80’s he’s was powered down so he he could barely stop an out-of-control bus. In the 60’s he had unlimited power. Currently he’s somewhere in between. A bazooka might stun him and he can’t move the planet. I think it’s difficult to write extremely powerful characters because it’s had to make a believable challenge for them. Most challenging situations become too easy to handle, limiting what the writer can throw at the character. Good writers can get past this though. A previous poster mentioned All… Read more »

    Prime, from Marvel when they did a whole new brand of comics from another universe. Only lasted a year I believe

    It’s Prime, but he was actually created by a company called Malibu. Marvel bought them out for their coloring system back in the 90’s, and not long after they closed the line down. The books were “ok” at best. I did like seeing Juggernaut in the Malibuverse as a good guy though. Been rooting for him ever since.

    Oh right, Malibu. Got confuse when Marvel once did a spin off universe of a whole new superheroes/villains
