Okay, since there was a post about people’s favorite Batman and their favorite Catwoman—and since Man of Steel just set a new box office record for films opening in June—it’s natural to ask: of all the various adaptations in the last 75 years, who is your favorite Superman? (And if you don’t like Superman you’ll probably enjoy the Esquire article by Stephen Marche, “Why Superman Sucks.”)
