Sneek Peek of Action # 1 by Grant Morrison and Rags Morales.
A young man that actually seems to embrace and enjoy his powers and what he does? Wow for so long we’ve seen an absolute martyr. That would be a relief to many of us who are tired of Superman sitting on his butt and reacting than being truly proactive. Morrison is bringing real PASSION back into the character it seems.
in February this year, Grant Morrison gave his thoughts about Supermam in an interview where he said;
But I love all the different versions, even the ones that are very different from “All Star Superman.”
I think if I was to do it again, for instance, I’d like to do the early Superman, who just lifts trucks and who can be hurt by a bursting shell. I’d like to do something really interesting with that guy. The young, angry Superman.
The different versions always fascinate me because they all add up to this huge, gigantic, multi-generational story. It’s something quite unique.
“If”. In 2008, he had similar thoughts.
And I wanted to do a story of Superman’s first year in Metropolis when he wasn’t so powerful and he was a bit more of a liberal activist.
And to do that kind of Superman, the big heavy guy who can only pick up trucks and be killed by an exploding shell, you can kind of do that as the first year and see the differences between that guy and the incredibly powerful, self-assured man-god in the main All Star Superman book.
So those are the three stories I came up with and as I say, they were slightly off the main storyline but related to it so I hope to do those when the current workload eases up because as I say I could just keep doing that Superman stuff forever.
