    It's a bird. It's a shuttlecraft. It's Superborg!

    TheSeeker was right. The second one is technically fairly faithful, it just looks stupid because of Nicholas Cage. The point being, this "redesign" people are complaining about is a tweak. That was a horrid redesign.

    Please pardon my ignorance, but is that Cage stoner face a Photoshop job, or is that really the way Nick/Supes was going to look?

    Pretty sure his head has been photshopped onto an action figure in that one.

    Hmm. Perhaps I was wrong about the 'shop.

    I'm glad this didn't happen if for no other reason than Cage is totally wrong to play Superman.

    The new suit looks nothing like the Nic Cage suit. It's a 100 times better.

    I DO really like that silver shield design they came up with.

    That's about it though.

    I believe it was intended to be Superman's "rebirth" suit, after being killed by Doomsday.

    Thank God someone did. From what I understand, he's the one with the sense to get that production killed.
