about to become a space zombie - Kal-L is going to be a member of the Black Lantern Corps.
That would be the Earth 2 Superman, who's based on the earliest version of the character, but is not the "original". Superman has been in continuous publication since 1938 and is constantly evolving. The character appearing in comics today is an evolved version of the guy in Action Comics #1.
I disagree but it's just nerdy a conversation for me to get worked up about.
You can, but
can you point out where the change happened? Where does the Golden Age/"original" Superman stop and the next version begin? From 1938 to 1986 all these changes happened organically. It would be like saying there are several versions of James Kirk in TOS.
