Since I'm on a Superman binge, and we had a thread like this on the Batman forum, why the hell not. Pretend DC had a clean slate reboot, and you're called upon to write Superman for the modern age:
1) How would you write the Man of Steel himself? Personality? True identity? Civilian life? Powers? Intellect? Skills? Technology? Pets? Base?
2) How would you write Krypton? Life on it? Flora and fauna? History? Relevance to Superman's adventures? Would you Superman more of a space-faring adventurer, like Silver Age Superman or the Fantastic Four?
3) How would you write Metropolis? Smallville? Other locations where Superman goes to? Would you make him limited to Metropolis, or go global and be to the whole planet what Batman is to Gotham?
4) His supporting cast? His friendships? His romantic relationships? His allies? What would you alter?
5) His rogues' gallery? What would you change? What would you add? What would you remove?
And do be creative. Let's not stick to the same old tried and true (or perhaps do). Expand your horizons (or perhaps not).
