This attempt at trolling is pathetic. You're taking this benign April Fools thread, which even the two respectable Superman fans, (cus you sure as hell ain't one of them), take it as a light hearted joke, and turning it into someting it's not. Even KC has a reason for his dumb comment... you're just dumb

I was definitely doubtful of the title.

Not a very funny joke considering that well... it's not really a joke.

It's just a prank bro

An interesting take, but not something I'd recommend to new readers trying to get into Superman. It's probably somewhere in the middle for me when it comes to Superman origins. It's better than WW Earth One, but not as good as TT or BM Earth One.

Why are you doing this, you trying to imply a point? Because all it's doing is making yourself look like crap. I get that you're probably mad about the changes, but if you insist on staying where you are now, you're just gonna dig yourself into a deeper hole. Not worth it man.

You are reading way to much into it, it's just a prank bro. It was April Fools when I posted it, and I wanted to post a believable enough prank on the Superman boards. It's made all in good fun, but it seems like all you new kids can't take a joke and launch this defensive attack for no reason.

@saintwildcard: Well I didn't read the date :p. In all seriousness tho, I didn't play it off as defensive, I played it more legitimately as questionable. I think your comment about new kids and stuff is a little uncalled for tho. If you just said it's a prank then it's fine. But the last part is just an unnecessary jab.

Very well, I might have gone overboard, but to be fair some people on this thread still chose to defend it even though they saw it on April Fools and it's clearly a prank.

I apologize, and I hope you enjoy your stay here on CV

It isn't a long reasons honestly, it's just that I bonded with the New 52 version, and this one just doesn't vibe with me. I've read all the origins, and Grant's was the one that I truly got into (not perfect, but it gave a true sense of a level one start, which I think is needed with a character as powerful as Superman). I get why they did what they did, after all, only Grant Morrison knew what to do with the character he had set up and the only other person to follow up what he did was Greg Pak, everyone else just didn't get what Grant was going for and wrote either these bland incarnations or jerky takes on the character. After so many flub ups, and shitty events (allthough, that's more a problem of the editorial than the writers) they just had enough and went back to the Old Man and gave him a Bastard child. But even though I get it, doesn't mean I have to accept it and keep reading.

I'm very particular when it comes to story progression and character growth, so for them to think that maybe they can regain me as a New 52 Superman fan if they "fuse" him into the Old Man (New 52 Superman's essence is just a drop in a bucket in terms of how it's gonna affect this fusion), is them thinking I'm desperate or a fool. I have no connection to the Old Man or his *LBGT slur that would get me banned* kid. They can take this "compromise" and shove it. Not to mention, that everything they've done recently with New 52 Superman and the entire notion of throwing The Watchmen under the bus as some lazy ass Meta Commentary is just making the entire atmosphere too toxic for me. It's for the best if I just move onto Elseworlds and Indie, because this type of BS retconning and world blending is giving me headaches.

Batman is still as masterful and awesome as ever, Noblebright Superman and Family is the reason most common people thing Superman is lame to be a fan off. Even when Superman was at his most Noblebright, he carried some dark and serious tone to his book and was kinda hardcore, Now I can't stand to see him smile because he kills all manner of complex boundries with his static in constantness.
