Does having a Superboy (Superman when he was a boy) story count?

What kind of crap glass was used in the windows of Wayne Manor (post-Crisis) that an animal with a mass of less than 27 grams (i.e. weighs less than an ounce) could break through it?

I just remember either me or someone else coming up with that line circa the early 2000s, when it seemed everyone in comics was dying to work on Superman, then producing crap when they did.
Having actually read the Man of Steel I think its pretty good. Its punchy, BMB brings back undies o the outside look, and has a reason for doing it, setups some character drama for Superman, Lois, Jon and well somebody else I wont spoil if you haven't read it. Also, that somebody else does not appear to be a Bendis decision since they show up much earlier in both Superman and Action Comics.Ares wrote: ↑Wed Dec 27, 2017 6:49 pmSo they're going to give Bendis a Superman book? The guy who is best at writing talking heads, flawed protagonists and street level adventures is going to handle . . . SUPERMAN? Why not put him on a Batman book or a new Outsiders book? Let him have his weird ragtag bunch of misfits series that he's better suited for?
Yeah me too. My favourite part of the arson bit is the Superman bringing in Batman to help, and his whole schtick is saying "I'm Batman" to introduce himself, and scaring the deputy fire chief. And of course Superman calling Batman out for doing it intentionally.
