I would hope no one thinks so, but sadly that isn't so apparently.

People who say things like that most likely have never read a superman comic, and are just trying to come up with stupid reasons to hate superman. because superman is the opposite of that. Superman is willing to ask for advice he just did it recently in action comics 11. Superman doesnt always think he is right, he is willing to change. Superman isnt a "dick".

I know some do, but I would wager it's not the majority.

Well..

In Red Hood and the Outlaws #14 he does act like a total dick.

In fact a lot of the issue is the whole team commenting what a dick he is.

@redhoodnet: That's New 52 Superman though, Real Superman was actually a pretty nice guy once the Silver age was over

I've always read superman, and he is a dick. It's just because he thinks he's 100% right. When usually batman is. Perfect example justice league tv show, episode new gods or whatever when brainiac and darkseid set him up. That's a perfect example of how he's a dick and usually nieve and wrong

He's a dick because he's not right all the time? Brilliant logic, dude.

I agree, plus usually he's willing to do things like sacrifice himself before other heroes from DC and Marvel would...very few can match Clark not just in term of power but more importantly in term of morals and ethical code.

Saying Superman is a dick is usually a cue that you don't read comics or are indeed a dick yourself.

No he doesnt. Quit making things up. Batman is the one who thinks he's always right, the whole court of owls storyline was about showing how arrogant batman has become and showing him that he doesnt know as much as he thinks he does

Superdickery is a JOKE, people. You shouldn't take it seriously, just laugh at it!

@reignmaker: I would love to see something like that pop up again, you know with out the whole woman thing. Like for example Metallo is screaming at superman for being a boy scout and that he would never sucker punch someone. Then the next panel is metallo flying through metropolis and the next one after that is just Superman after he has flicked mettallo away, saying that wasn't a sucker puch.

Really, this only started to spring up again after the New 52, and it was because he brutally humiliated Batman, whom everyone always saw as the "one man who beat him" (which wasn't even true). Just check out Superman vs Green Lantern and Batman on YouTube. It's full of people hating on Superman being such a jerk and too powerful, and how Batman would totally have taken him down easily if he had prep, etc.

Because Lex Luthor has manipulated the media into showing images like this one.
