’90s SUPREME STORYLINES RANKED BEST TO WORST

STAR RATINGS:

Best: 5 to 4.5 stars.

Good: 4 to 3 stars.

Notably, Alan Moore’s Supreme has been celebrated as the definitive version of the character. In 1994, Keith Giffen previously worked on the series. In many respects, ‘The Legend of Supreme’ gave the anti-hero his most distinctive style.

Really, the world of superheroes has its saviors, anti-heroes and vigilantes. To begin, the story is set in 1939. Fortuitously, a reporter named Maxine Winslow investigates Supreme’s “origin story.” But, what she finds about the hero is shocking. In “The Gospel According To Ethan Crane,” the savior reveals in a manuscript his religious motivations behind his particular brand of justice.

Here, Supreme blends the vigilantism of the Golden Age with religious crusading. In the Modern Age, superheroes are rarely portrayed as saviors, with right reason. However, Liefield’s more self-righteous hero is properly a messiah. And when Father Beam disapproves of his methods, tragedy follows.

Definitely, this story is a good primer on Supreme. What makes it work, is the earnestness of the characters and their chemistry. Without a doubt, it is geared towards an adult audience.

BEST: “SUPREME: THE STORY OF THE YEAR” (1996).

Collects ‘Supreme’ #41-52.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Plot: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Characterization: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Art: 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

To this day, Alan Moore is revered as a legendary writer in the comic genre. In fact, he won the 1997 Eisner Award for Best Writer. To this end, the comic legend has produced for DC Comics some of the most celebrated works in the genre. Namely, I speak of “Watchmen” and “V For Vendetta.” Furthermore, his work on Supreme led to a rebirth of the character in 1996.

Without a doubt, “The Story Of The Year,” is Moore’s most influential work on Supreme. Successfully, Moore converted Supreme from a violent ’90s Superman analogue to an optimistic Superman-like hero. As Reed-Hinckley Barnes from Multiversity notes, there is a meta message in Supreme’s story arc about superheroes and the stories about them.

SILVER AGE

To this end, Moore’s story arc incorporates Silver Age-style flashbacks into each issue’s narrative structure. In some sense, they are the result of editorial “revisions” that function as comics within the comic issue. In reality, following his quest for meaning, Supreme’s amnesia caused the character’s Limbo. Therefore, it was up to the character to regain his roots in order to truly become a Silver Age Superman. Certainly, the effect is to turn the whole work into a classic.

Indeed, Alan Moore completely revamped the hero. In fact, Supreme is every bit the Image Comics version of Superman: He was raised in Littlehaven where he began his superhero career as a Kid Supreme; as an adult, he moved to Omegapolis; Darius Dax, his nemesis is a Lex Luthor pastiche; Supreme even joined the Allies and the Infinity League in the 1940s. Overall, what makes the story arc work is its emphasis on family, tradition and child-like adventure.

Definitely, this story is essential Supreme and Alan Moore fans will love the Silver Age flashbacks.

BEST: ‘SUPREME: THE RETURN’ (1999).

Collects ‘Supreme: The Return’ #1-6

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Dialogue: 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Plot: 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Characterization: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Art: 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.

Notably, ‘Supreme: The Return,’ marks the grand return of Supreme’s arch-nemesis, Darius Dax. In “The Most Powerful Image Heroes From The ’90s,” Supreme is at the top. Unfortunately, due to a Moore company collapse, the last two issues in the arc were not completed. Nevertheless, this story arc is included on this list as important Supreme comics.

Moreover, Supreme’s level of power in the final issue is unrivaled. Indeed, in a meta-narrative, Supreme meets DC and Marvel pastiches before meeting the “Monarch.” In grand style, Supreme encounters the Writer, Jack Kirby, in idea space. Faced with Kirby’s world, the Writer states Supreme’s level of power allows him to achieve virtually anything. In fact, such is the nature of Supremium that it warps reality.

In the end, Supreme recounts his adventure to his new girlfriend, Diana Dane. Certainly, Supreme seems to have come of age, finally accepting his secret identity and his superhero life. Definitely, this is a must-have to your Supreme collection.

Super Power Explained: Male And Female Warriors And Superheroes Ranked That Performed Best To Worst Against Doomsday

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

DOOMSDAY’S REACTIVE ADAPTATION GRANTS IT UNIVERSAL-LEVEL DURABILITY

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey' (1994) #1, Doomsday faces the awesome might of Darkseid!

In “Super Power Explained: Is The Omega Effect, Universal Or Multiversal In Power Level?,” we rated Darkseid’s Omega Effect. In a few words, Darkseid’s Omega Effect is Universal Level since it managed to kill Doomsday. However, due to Doomsday’s reactive evolution, the monster survived the onslaught. Dangerously, it nearly fatally injured Darkseid. To rate the super power, we looked at the destruction of Doomsday at the end of “Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey.” To sum, it took the entropy at the end of the DC Universe to kill the monster.

On this list, let’s rank those heroes and incarnations that have performed best to worst against the Ultimate in battle. In addition, let’s list the relevant issues.

BEST: POST-CRISIS SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN/DOOMSDAY: HUNTER/PREY’ (1994) #3

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter Prey #3' (1994), Doomsday is taken to the end of time by Superman and Waverider.

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey’ (1994) #3, Superman learns the origin of Doomsday from Waverider. 200,000 years ago, the Ultimate was born on Krypton from genetic engineering by a scientist named Bertron.

Despite Mother Box’s amps, Superman is no match for Doomsday. In effect, his reactive adaptation enables him to evolve to counter Superman’s attack. And, his power of immortality prevents Superman from killing him in the same way twice.

Nevertheless, using Waverider’s Temporal Transporter, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe. There, entropy effectively kills Doomsday. Then, a reconstituted Waverider transports Superman back to the present.

Clearly, one of Superman’s clearest victories. Here, Superman used both brawn and brain to put down the monster. Definitely, it belongs at the top of the list.

VISIT FEAT: SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN/BATMAN’ #10.

BEST: NEW 52 SUPERMAN, ‘SUPERMAN: DOOMED’ (2014) #1

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Superman rips Doomsday in half in Smallville.

During the New 52, Doomsday resurfaced as a plague. Terrifyingly, the monster was stealing sentient life forces. To this end, it was in order to be powerful enough to fight Superman.

In ‘Superman: Doomed’ (2014) #1, Superman and Wonder Woman hunted down the creature in Botswana. However, it spent its time teleporting around the Earth. In fact, it was corrupting all life in its vicinity with its toxins.

Eventually, Superman confronts the menace in India. Then, he takes the fight to outer space. On Venus, Superman destroys the monster with a blast of heat vision. Back in Smallville, the monster follows the Man of Steel. In a vicious attack, Superman rips Doomsday in half, ending the threat.

Clearly, one of the most decisive victories against Doomsday. Definitely, a Herculean effort.

GOOD: NEW 52 WONDER WOMAN, ‘SUPERMAN: DOOMED’ (2014) #1

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Wonder Woman rumbles against Doomsday.

Previously, Doomsday held Wonder Woman on the ropes in ‘Superman/Wonder Woman’ (2013) #1. Until Superman arrived on the scene. Then, Doomsday teleported away.

Similarly, in Round Two, the situation repeats in ‘Superman: Doomed’ (2014) #1. But, this time, Wonder Woman performs better against the plague. With a strike of her sword, Wonder Woman pierces Doomsday’s thorax. As a result, the monster releases deadly poison. Though Wonder Woman is infected, she continues the fight.

As Doomsday attacks, he is blasted by a dose of heat vision. In the nick of time, Superman has arrived to save his girlfriend. Strangely, before Superman can take down the monster, Doomsday teleports away. Perhaps, in fear of the Kryptonian.

Definitely, a victory for the Power Couple.

In 'Adventures of Superman' (1992) #497, Maxima battles Doomsday.

Promptly, it is time for a Maxima revival. Post-Crisis, the Queen of Almerac is a heavy hitter of the JLA. During “The Death of Superman,” Maxima and the Man of Steel were the only JLAers left standing against Doomsday.

A warrior-born, Maxima performed impressively against the creature. Though, her fierceness and her battle lust may have caused her undoing.

In her battle lust, Maxima removed a light pole from its base. With the gasoline gushing from a nearby gas station, the sparks from the light pole caused a huge explosion. Caught in the explosion, Maxima and Superman were knocked out. Later, Superman and Maxima are revived by Guardian. In the end, Doomsday survived and Superman decided to stop the monster alone.

Indeed, a good showing by a female warrior against the Ultimate.

In ‘Superman’ (2001) #175, Joker unleashes Doomsday on the anniversary of the Last Son of Krypton’s death. On that day, President Luthor gives a speech commemorating recent events during “Our Worlds At War.” At the White House, President Luthor is under attack by the Berserker.

Disguised as a secret agent, Mac transforms into Martian Manhunter. For the first time, Doomsday displays intelligence and speech. Unfortunately, Martian telepathy has no effect. When Doomsday blocks J’onn’s punch, the Martian notes the creature is sentient.

Then, Doomsday brings Martian Manhunter to his knees. Though the monster acknowledges J’onn’s power, he states the Martian is no Superman. Finally, Doomsday demonstrates another super power. Atrociously, the monster breathes fire on Martian Manhunter, defeating him.

Definitely, a bad performance against Doomsday.

EXTINCTION

WITH SCORCH’S HELP, MARTIAN MANHUNTER OVERCOMES HIS FIRE WEAKNESS

In “JLA: Trial By Fire,” Martian Manhunter becomes Fernus The Burning. In ‘JLA’ (2003) #84, J’onn J’onnz meets with Superman over barbeque. Joyfully, he tells Superman he has overcome his fire weakness. With Scorch’s help, it has taken training to the limits of his mind and body. Soon, J’onn invites Superman to stay for dinner. But the Man of Steel has to respond to a JLA signal and flies away. As he departs, J’onn tells him he wants to remain on his vacation. Though, he intends to come back soon.

Later, the Justice League of America convenes on the Watchtower. Recently, at Arkham Asylum, Blackgate Prison and other prisons have reported their prisoners bawling over their crimes and watching Sesame Street on television. Green Lantern (John Stewart) hypothesizes it is a telepath. Soon, the JLA also find out that President Luthor is catatonic. Courageously, Superman enlists Martian Manhunter’s help. Unfortunately, J’onn is unable to repair Luthor’s mind. Moreover, he is caught in an energy feedback. And, the disembodied voice of Fernus speaks about its mysterious “gifts” to the JLA.1

THE GUARDIANS OF THE UNIVERSE FEARED THE BURNING MARTIANS

In ‘JLA’ (2003) #87, Green Lantern (John Stewart) tells the origin story of the Martian race. 20,000 years ago, Mars was peopled by the Burning Martians. In a few words, the Burning Martians lived on a planet of Chaos. Certainly, they were a “barbaric, ruthless, brilliant” species.2 Moreover, they constantly battled amongst themselves. Eventually, their wars and tremendous power attracted the Guardians of the Universe’s attention. As the self-appointed Guardians of Order, the Guardians felt it necessary to intervene to stop the spread of Chaos. Indeed, Mars was centuries away from achieving space travel.

Battling the Burning Martians, the Guardians wanted to avoid genocide. Then, they turned to genetic manipulation. Brilliantly, the Guardians repressed the Burning Martians with the psycho-somatic weakness to fire. But, as John notes, they were short-sighted. Truly, they neglected to account for the Martian collective consciousness. So, J’onn J’onnz overcame his weakness. Effectively, he gained access to the Burning Martian genetic block through the Martian collective consciousness. As Fernus, he needs the suffering and the burning of the entire human population in order to reproduce asexually.

FERNUS TAKES ON PLASTIC MAN AND THE JLA

In ‘JLA’ (2003) #88, Fernus takes on Plastic Man and the JLA. Previously, Batman recruited Plastic Man (Patrick O’Brian) into active duty. Going toe-to-toe, Plastic Man is able to contain Fernus for some time. Correctly, Batman states Plastic Man’s mind is no longer organic. His shape-shifting which is based on inspiration, can adapt to Martian telepathy. However, Superman fails to destroy the last of the nuclear warheads that Fernus detonated. Unfortunately, the warhead detonates in the city of Chongjin in North Korea.

In ‘JLA’ (2003) #89, Flash runs at light speed to save its 532,000 men, women and children. Suddenly, Scorch turns the tide of the battle. Courageously, the demon absorbs Fernus’ fire allowing Superman and the League to obliterate the Burning. Sadistically, Fernus triggers Scorch’s fire. Jubilantly, Fernus is about to spawn only to find Martian Manhunter ripping through his entrails. The faith of the JLA freed him from the Dreamwalk. Meanwhile, Green Lantern turns off the city-wide flames with a wave of water. Finally, Martian Manhunter obliterates Fernus with his Martian vision.

In ‘Action Comics’ (2007) #847, Superman and Pa Kent visit the Kepler supernova in a Sunstone spaceship. Suddenly, Superman hears a distress signal. In fact, it is coming in the neighboring solar system about a Sun Eater. Flying off, Superman meets an alien spaceship with an entropy bomb to destroy the Sun Eater. Since the craft was damaged, Superman carried the entropy bomb into the Sun-Eater. Incredibly, Superman withstood red sun radiation and delivered the bomb. Moreover, the explosion was the size of 50 supernovas at light speed.

In the first issue, Superman was weakened by red solar radiation. Nevertheless, the Man of Steel withstood the explosion of the Sun-Eater. As a matter of fact, it was equal to 50 supernovas. In “Feat: Superman, DCeased #6”, we estimated the energy released by a supernova is roughly 1.8*1047 Joules. Then, let’s estimate Superman’s durability.

Superman’s Durability = (1.26*1045 J)(50 supernovas) = 6.3*1046 J.

To calculate Luthor’s intelligence, let’s find the conversion.
Conversion = (6.3*1046 J* 0.125 bytes )/(310.15 K * 1 J/K) = 2.539094*10^43 B/s.

INTELLIGENCE

Lex Luthor processed 2.539094*10^43 B/s of information in order to invent the radiation rifles. Lex Luthor had to generate an Adaptive Evolution Level of Intelligence since he is likely 3.612*1042 times more intelligent than the Internet.

Calculations for Lex Luthor, ‘Action Comics Annual’ #11

Energy Of A Supernova = 1.26*10^45 J.

Superman’s Durability = (1.26*10^45 J)(50 supernovas) = 6.3*10^46 J.
Ratio = (6.3*10^46 J)(24 hr * 8600 s)/(1 day * 1 hr * 7,500,000 J/day) = 1.73376*10^45.
Bytes Of Information In Luthor’s Brain = (1.73376*10^45)(2.5*10^15 bytes)/(1 human) = 4.3344*10^60 bytes.
Ratio To The Internet = (2.539094*10^43 B/s)/(2500000000 B/s) = 1.0156376*10^34.

Second, King Aquaman is revealed to have multiple love interests. Third, the menace of Doctor Polaris is featured. The story delivers action, comedy and romance.

In fact, it is a comedic story that definitely shows the playboy nature of Aquaman. Since her debut, Maxima has been an important ally of the Justice League of America. Here, it is no different. Fans of the Superman-Maxima love angle will love this new love interest.

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

THE DC UNIVERSE IS ALL ABOUT SPEED

'DC Nation' (2018) #2 ranks the Top 10 speedsters in the DC Universe

In the DC Universe, speedsters are capable of moving at tremendous speeds. Indeed, these are metahumans possessing tremendous super speed. To this end, ‘DC Nation’ (2018) #2, lists the Top 10 speedsters in the DC Universe.

For our purposes, let’s list them according to classes: 1. Speed Force Users. 2. Kryptonians. 3. Greek Pantheon and Magic Users. 4. Martians.

I. INFINITE CLASS: SPEED FORCE USERS

In the DC Universe, the Speed Force is the super power that powers the best of DC’s speedsters. In fact, this multiversal energy allows its users to generate an infinite amount of kinetic energy. To sum, DC’s best speedsters are Speed Force conduits that can reach an infinite amount of super speed.

1. FLASH (WALLY WEST), ‘JLA’ (1997) #3

In 'JLA' (1997) #3, Flash's infinite mass punch sends Zum into escape velocity at seven miles per second.

In ‘JLA’ (1997) #3, Flash (Wally West) showcased why he is the Fastest Man Alive. At the time, Wally endeared himself to us. Remembering Barry’s “Flash Facts,” he used a combat technique known as the Infinite Mass Punch.

In a race against the White Martian named Zum, Wally shattered general relativity. Indeed, he accelerated his mass to infinity as he approached the speed of light. Then, he hit Zum with the IMP generating an infinite amount of kinetic energy. At high speeds, Zum hit escape velocity and landed across the planet.

In ‘The Flash’ (1999) #148, Flash hits Reverse-Flash with a white dwarf punch. Definitely, the IMP enables Flash to take on Superman-level foes. Considering this, Wally deserves the top spot on this list.

2. FLASH (BARRY ALLEN), ‘FLASHPOINT’ (2011) #5

In 'Flashpoint' (2011) #5, Reverse-Flash reveals to Barry that the hero caused Flashpoint over grief for his mother.

Certainly, “Flashpoint” is the most important DC crossover event of the new millennium. In a few words, in ‘Flashpoint’ (2011) #1, Barry Allen awakens at his desk. Strangely, he notices details of his daily routine are off. Also, he has no speed.

Furthermore, the most important detail is that his mother is alive. Afterwards, visiting the Batcave, Barry meets with Batman who is Thomas Wayne. In the end, Barry realizes he is living in an alternate timeline and suspects the Reverse-Flash is the cause.

In ‘Flashpoint’ (2011) #5, Reverse-Flash reveals to Barry that the hero caused Flashpoint over grief for his mother. When Barry found out Eobard murdered his mother, he time travelled to the past. Tragically, he saved his mother which resulted in the new timeline.

In the end, Barry attempts to restore the timeline. Unfortunately, this creates the Prime Earth multiverse. Certainly, the Speed Force grants its users infinite energy. Here, Barry shows his super power: time travel and the ability to recreate the DC multiverse. Definitely, this requires an infinite amount of kinetic energy.

3. REVERSE-FLASH (BARRY ALLEN), ‘FLASHPOINT’ (2011) #5

In 'The Flash' (1993) #79, Reverse-Flash reveals he replicated Flash's powers in the 25th century.

Among his rogues, Reverse-Flash is Flash’s most dangerous foe. J. Richland Anderson at CBR.com, lists him third on the “10 Fastest Characters In All Of The DC Multiverse”. In the 25th century, technology has solved the problem of crime. As a result, there are no superheroes.

A wealthy man, Eobard Thawne was obsessed with the Flash. Successfully, he replicated Flash’s powers in an experiment and became… Reverse-Flash! Time traveling to the 20th century, he plagued Flash for years.

Among his super powers are: dimensional travel, time travel, reality alteration and Speed Force Negation. Lately, Thawne has created the Negative Speed Force.

II. COSMIC CLASS: KRYPTONIANS

In the second class, are the Kryptonians. In a few words, under the light of the yellow sun, Kryptonians are capable of running, reacting, flying and traveling at superhuman speeds. Really, Kryptonians derive their super speed from the yellow solar radiation stored in their super dense cells. In effect, they are supermen who can move at FTL speeds.

1. SUPERBOY-PRIME, ‘INFINITE CRISIS’ (2006) #6

Originally, Superboy-Prime was destined to become Superman. Tragically, Alexander Luthor Jr’s machinations during “Infinite Crisis” caused him to become an evil Superman.

In ‘Infinite Crisis’ (2006) #4, believing himself to be the true Superboy, Superboy-Prime attacked Superboy. As a result, the Doom Patrol, Teen Titans and JSA came to the rescue. Critically, many members of the super-powered teams were injured. Left with no choice, Bart, Jay and Wally sent SBP to the Speed Force. There, he was imprisoned under a red sun.

In ‘Infinite Crisis’ (2006) #6, proving no prison could shackle him, Superboy-Prime escaped. Definitely, it requires to be faster than the Speed Force to escape it. Is SBP faster than infinity?

2. H’EL, ‘SUPERMAN’ (2013) #14

During the “H’el on Earth” storyline, Superman meets a foe unlike he has seen before. In a few words, H’el is Superman with additional super powers: teleportation, telekinesis, telepathy and size alteration.

In ‘Superman’ (2013) #14, H’el teleports Superboy so fast that Superman can’t see his movements. Considering Superman’s perception, this definitely requires FTL super speed. Certainly, this feat is the reason why H’el belongs on this list.

3. SUPERMAN, ‘ACTION COMICS’ (2014) #35

In 'Action Comics' (2014) #35, Superman travels endless space in 60 days.

On multiple occasions, the Man of Steel has demonstrated he can travel and react at FTL super speed. Particularly, the speedblitz is a combat technique that allows Superman to punch his foes at tremendous speeds.

In ‘Action Comics’ (2014) #35, Superman demonstrates a cosmic class feat in the New 52. During the Brainiac invasion, Superman succumbed to the Doomsday Virus. On his return to Earth, Superman travels endless space in 60 days.

In conclusion, this is a FTL super speed feat. Definitely, it is the reason why Clark deserves a spot on this list.

III. STELLAR CLASS: GREEK PANTHEON AND MAGIC USERS

Third, is the Greek Pantheon and magic users. In short, these metahumans derive their super speed from divine enchantment and the pantheon of gods. Incredibly, they can move at near the speed of light. As a matter of fact, they regularly compete with DC’s best speedsters.

1. WONDER WOMAN, ‘WONDER WOMAN’ (2005) #214

To begin, Wonder Woman regularly competes with DC’s best speedsters. In ‘JLA’ (2008) #23, the League has been defeated by an upgraded Amazo in Red Tornado’s body. Thus, it’s up to Wonder Woman to save the day. Using their combined super powers, the JLA defeats Amazo.

In the issue, it is stated that Wonder Woman’s combat speed is faster than Superman’s. Though, Superman may have unlimited travel speed potential.

In ‘Wonder Woman’ (2005) #214, a blind Wonder Woman reaches Reverse-Flash moving at near light-speed. Considering the Reverse-Flash is powered by the Speed Force, this is a feat requiring near infinite kinetic energy. Therefore, Wonder Woman belongs in the Stellar class.

2. CAPTAIN MARVEL (SHAZAM), ‘JUSTICE’ (2006) #7

In 'Justice' (2006) #7, Captain Marvel outruns the Fastest Man Alive.

Throughout DC continuity, Captain Marvel (Shazam) has been recognized as Superman’s equal. As matter of fact, the “Justice” series proves this to be the case. In ‘Justice’ (2006) #7, the League recovers from an attack from the Legion of Doom.

On the ocean, Superman and Captain Marvel find Flash running. Atrociously, his accelerated metabolism prevents Flash from stopping to run. Sensing the danger, Superman admits only Captain Marvel may be able to save Flash. Then, the Captain has a plan.

Pouring on the speed, he catches up to Flash. In a flash of lightning bolt, he utters the magic word: Shazam! Then, he transforms back to Billy Batson and Barry is knocked out. Quickly, Superman saves them both.

In the issue, Barry states he can run around the planet in a heartbeat. Considering a human heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute, the World’s Mightiest Mortal travelled at 22 percent of the speed of light. Therefore, it is a reason why Captain Marvel may be faster than the Man of Steel.

IV. PLANETARY CLASS: MARTIANS

Finally, the Green and White Martians can think, run and fly at speeds multiple times the speed of sound. Incredibly, they can fly around the Earth in seconds. Some can even travel in space under their own power.

In the JLA’s first meeting with Hyperclan, Wally West battled Zum. In a race, the White Martian used military tactics and superior speed. As matter of fact, Zum was running so fast, he was creating after images. In some sense, he may have been approaching the speed of light. In fact, that is what it took for Flash to defeat Zum.
