Seriously? Sounds like a troll topic but it's perfectly legit.

Whats with superman? he's got no character to him at all, he has ultimate strength, ultimate speed and all that other crap and only ONE weakness. He's such a boring character to watch plus he's never appeared in a decent game in his life lol.

Also, for a guy with only one weakness, you'd think he'd have come up with a way to be a little bit more prepared for the inevitable moment when Lex pulls out... yet another bar of kryptonite, but no, every time it happens he acts shocked like it could never happen to him. Whats with his disguise as well?! A pair of glasses and they can't see it's him!? God damn the people of Metropolis are thick.

I'm sorry to moan but the guys got no character to him should have been left in the past to die out, or put in some retirement home for superhero's who no longer have any relevance on normal society.


So does anyone else feel the same way?

Honestly, yes. He's too perfect a superhero, which makes vanquishing villains much too easy.

By the way, he's also weak to magic.

Shocking him seems to work too, the TV show always had people shocking him.

But I think the reason he is a good superhero is that he is pretty much the ultimate superhero, and the writing in his comics is usually pretty good too

He is the ultimate immigrant tale.

All of his games are horrible.

Maybe when MK vs DC Universe is released, he'll be in his first good game?

I like the old Superman movies, but the new movies and the video games suck.

Well he's never been in a -good- game designed solely around him.

I couldn't agree with you more OP. You'd expect him to be much much stronger since he only has one weakness.

I wouldn't say hate, but this video is a great example of why I do dislike Superman.  His powers seem to come and go as the writers need them to.  It's also why I hate the Matrix movies after the first.

I definitely hate Smallville more than Superman, but yeah Superman is too perfect.
#12 Posted by kratos (208 posts) -

Best intro song, but the rest of his character is shallow.  His villains suck too.

#13 Posted by epic_pets (1339 posts) -

His costume is just so hateable

Superman has three official weaknesses Kryptonite, Magic, and being in video games.

Superman sucks.
Batman is the only cool hero, because he's not SUPER, he's just a man who does a lot of pushups, and is generally awesome, he doesn't need super powers to be awesome.

#16 Posted by RVonE (4603 posts) -

How can Superman be anything less than a super man? Superman represents awesomeness.

#17 Posted by x3ar (236 posts) -

i actually hate all superheros and really dont understand why everyone loves the superhero movies so much.

#18 Posted by Rowr (5477 posts) -

Confirmed.

Cant wait for Mk vs Dc so I can beat the crap out of him.

#20 Posted by TullyAckland (237 posts) -

Superman is a joke, everything about him and his comics pisses me off.

#21 Posted by Cowman (658 posts) -

Some heroes have aged well, Superman is not one of those heroes. I will cut Superman some slack, he was one the first generation super heroes. I just don't think he fits in anymore.
Usually heroes are the underdog but in the superman comics the villains are. It's like making a comic about an adult that goes around beating up evil children, sure they may deserve it but why would I want to see someone engaged in such a one sided conflict?
Aren't some of the best stories when the underdog wins? Superman is rarely the underdog, sure sometimes he fights aliens with similar abilities which is what I think the comics should focus on instead of some bald man in some office.

Why do you hate superheroes?
#23 Posted by MutenMiller (215 posts) -

I like Superman, but I agree in this day and age, with the style of characters and storytelling we enjoy, he just doesn't fit any more. He was written in a time when people craved a perfect, infallible hero who could come and stop anything and anyone; that's just what people wanted at the time. But now we are a little more sophisticated in what we want from heroes - we want men with a few gifts, but as flawed as the rest of us. It makes them more identifiable and relevant. They have tried to weaken him obviously over time with kryptonite, magic, etc, but short of an entire reimagination he's sort of stuck.

#24 Posted by AtomicEdge (304 posts) -

I'm a superman fan because of his ultimate power. I hope that he can't be beaten at all in MK vs DC.

I think that his normal punch move should be an instant kill, as should his heat vision, ice breath and his kicks. He should have a special move where in 2 seconds he flies into low orbit, and with all his strength and accuracy throws a penny directly at the head of his enemies that splits their skull open and instantly kills them.

Otherwise, MK vs DC will not be realistic at all.

#25 Posted by Happy_Cloud (190 posts) -

I certainly hated Superman Returns. That movie was awful.

#26 Posted by calf_exercises (858 posts) -

I find super man hard to like, I meen just look at his name. Super Man. honastly. He is the most over powerd super hero, has a lame ass weakness but still manages to find himself getting his ass whopped all the time and has probly the worst arche nemises of all time. Lex luthor.

Nuthing else needs to be said besides that he is one of the originals and no matter what anyone says he will always be loved by someone.

#27 Posted by Carlos (504 posts) -

Yeah superman is just too overpowered... thats just lame

#28 Posted by leo931 (1 posts) -

I think, I know why people just don't like Superman anymore because he's just to Good and now of days, a hero just can't be a hero he gotta have a dark side to. I like Superman when I was a kid and still do . Cause he stay the same. Now the new movie OK it Sucked, but the old movies come on if you was a real fan of superman you hear that song playing you know what time it was. You can't tell me when you was a kid you don't feel something, the games I know why they games suck to. The fans or not making the games just people who just don't care how the game turn out, if I was making a superman game, I would start from the beginning. If you think of about it no superman game have ever started from the beginning, There can be a great superman game you just have to watch the old movies. But what am I going on about nobody going  to understand me anyway.

The only person who seems to actualy like Superman is Jerry Seinfeld, which is a shame.

Watch Smallville. That show is amazing. It really makes you respect Superman because of the tragedies in his life.

#34 Posted by ColumnBreaker (1159 posts) -

Well, the day I got MK vs DC I spent about 20 rounds fighting as Jax against him.. doing Jax's head pancake fatality over and over.


I don't know if that says more about my hatred for Superman, or just my hatred in general.

Obviously you haven't seen the show enough to know what your talking about. How much did you see the show? 1 episode, 5 minutes, not at all?

I watched say half of season one and BiggerBomb's description fit perfectly. They're trying to hard to modernise him and make him sympathetic when we all know he's just some invincible bro with no personality.

Yeah... FOUR SEASON AGO... They left High School at the end of Season 4 and we're on Season 8. Anyways, if you were with the show from  the beginning you would know that it got progressively cooler.

I'm sorry my friend, but I think you should shut up. You're hardly in a position to give your opinion on a show that you have barely seen. I hate sneering sarcastic people, especially when they act sarcastic for no reason...

LiquidPrince, are you saying he should watch 8 seasons of an awful show just to justify the concept of Superman as something interesting?

#46 Posted by DarkEnzanArikado (189 posts) -

Eh, was never really a superman fan. I like the marvel and dc comics but I was never really attached to any specific hero.

First of all, awful is subjective, and no, that is not what I'm saying. I'm saying you need to have seen a good amount of consecutive episodes before offering a review on it. Same concept as reviewing a game, you have to have actually played it. You don't give an opinion if your not informed or else you just sound like a dumbass. Easy concept.

Sometimes . . . I am powerless to do anything but shake my head, face-in-palms, at the direction some of these threads go. 

I think now is an adequate time to cease complaining about the arguments that fester on the forums, because I'm starting to sound like a broken record. 

Personally, I totally agree that Smallville has not been so great since the early seasons.  Also, and I'm obviously in the minority here, I dig Superman.  Sure, he's pretty much impervious to anything that isn't sorcery or amorphous green minerals, but what the hell, it's fun to burn energy thinking about a dude who, when completely peeved, can hurl entire continents into the atmosphere.

I'm sorry BiggerBomb, but you are lacking intelligence because firstly that argument or rebuttal is in no way related to this discussion. Secondly if you had actually read what I had said in that thread and how it actually ended you would have know that that was not what I had said.. I believe the quote that everyone agreed on was:

LIVE is better then PSN, but not by much, however it is retarded to have to pay for LIVE.

How old are you? 13? You rebute like a kid. Something along the lines of, "yeah well... I know you are but what am I..."
