Re: J.J. Abrams Says Returning To Superman 'Would Be A Blast'

I'd love to see Abrams's version of Superman.
Me too. And here are a few things I want to see done differently:

* No godsfrackingdamm crystal technology for Krypton; study Star Trek: TOS, TNG, Voyager, and DS9 and use the design styles and philosophies to create an ordinary, Earth-like but alien Krypton; also study John Byrne's version of Superman for other design styles.

*Have Superman kick butt the way he's supposed to, with a hard attitude yet caring heart (Pine should combine Kirk's cockiness with Superman's hardness)

*Make Clark Kent like he was on the Superman: TAS show (portrayal of which was based on George Reeves's version of Clark Kent as seen in The Adventures Of Superman)

*Keep Perry White's attitude from Superman Returns-I love the fact that Frank Langella wasn't always screaming.

*Base the script on the 2004 miniseries Superman Birthright-it's the best origin story I've ever read, IMHO. It's best for me because the Clark Kent seen in it isn't a whiny emo boy like he is on Smallville.
