“He always represents our highest ideal of what we can be at any given time……”
“I wouldn’t say that anything I’m writing in the new stuff is anything like Batman. He’s not that character at all. He’s a much more… even though he’s a more isolated character, he’s still upbeat, because you’ve got to remember that no matter how isolated Superman is, he always stands for the best. So although, you know, Batman only lost two people, Superman lost millions, billions of Kryptonians. I mean that guy really suffered. He’s always been in a much worse place than Batman, but at the same time he’s always had a very different way of dealing with it. So no, we’re not going to see a brooding Superman crouched in gargoyles or any of that.”
Okay, so it doesn’t prove anything really. But I like it!
