Read through Kevin Smith's script for "Superman Lives" [link]
today, and was reminded of just how much I love the last son of Krypton. I think most Superman COMICS are kind of bleh, but as a character and a mythology he's the bee's knees. High on my list of DC or Marvel properties I'd want to write.
That's Superman's biological father Jor-El, telling the Kryptonian government their planet is going to explode (which I also drew, along with the rocket carrying Jor-El's infant son, Kal-El), and Kal-El himself, in his early years as a superhero.
