Non-science digression: farewell to Superman, the last hero

OK, I officially hate what DC is doing to Superman. Do these people remaking him as dark and edgy and angsty have no respect whatever for an iconic character? He may be, as Batman once called him, an "overgrown Boy Scout," but the comics world needs at least ONE hero who still believes in right and wrong and isn't a borderline psycho. You know, someone people would actually look up to? Superman was the last of those heroes. The 12-year-old boy in me weeps.

DC is just something else. They killed Superman in ironically titled th Death of Superman, and now they have twenty different writing teams and there is not just one Superman there are 20 something. Just like trying to figure out the Jokers origin from the detective comics...not going to happen
