Superman animated re-deign by StephaneRoux Superman animated re-deign by StephaneRoux
For this one, I decided to go for what the character should always be about, in my opinion. Solar ( both as a metaphor and literally, as he gets his strength from a yellow sun ), conveying hope and heart-warming compassion, displaying confidence. Calm strength. Sure he can be pushed to limits, with his faith in mankind, with his respect for life. But the best in him, the kindness, the reason, the heart, the ability to harness such power should always prevail, in the end. Not some inconsiderate city leveller, or a super brawler lacking super brains.

Gorgeous. Everything you meant to convey leaps off the page. Nice to see the genuinely compassionate side of this much-bandied super superhero.

Let's take Superman the hell away from DC/WB, and remake him into a creation of the fans. He's become a fan thing for some time. The real and true Superman is what Roux makes clear he is, and not some corporate ass had-around yutz.

Agreed, Superman needs to be public domain.

I think with Superman, WB/DC always want to tear him down. Make him a na´ve idiot with no perspective on anything or any real concept of what his job really entails, make him a crybaby who's too afraid to make hard decisions and is willing to turn tail and quit in the event that he has to, make him a bumbler who can be easily manhandled by Batman, make him a victim who can be endlessly abused and mistreated by the people he loves (*cough* Lois Lane *cough*), make him a hothead who goes a rampage/goes bad the minute something goes wrong (any AU story where Lois dies)...basically, I think they're afraid to write Superman as a mature, seasoned hero who knows when and where to get his hands dirty, who knows how to get the job done, who has the smarts and self-respect to take care of himself, and ultimately is a man worthy of icon status. I've often thought that Superman is, or at least should be, the superhero equivalent of Jim Kirk (minus the skirt-chasing, natch), and he's consistently at his best when he is written as such.
