Superman and Majestic

One of the weird (and off-putting) things about the DC Reboot is the idea of "Superman is more Kal-El than Clark Kent". And the reason why is that if you need a character who is sort of Superman-like, but without the humanity, you've got Mr. Majestic right there.

(And no, the Martian Manhunter does have quite a bit of humanity in him, so he doesn't count).

I've always liked Mr. Majestic from the moment he was first introduced in WildC.A.T.S. I never thought he was 'without humanity' in those early Image issues. Just more arrogant. I guess they had to think of something to differentiate between him and Superman once Wildstorm was bought by DC and settled for this. This is one of the reasons why I never cared for the DC buyout of Wildstorm, and I care about the integration of Wildstorm into the DC Universe even less.

Speaking of things I couldn't care less about, the guy in the Superman shirt and jeans in those NuSuperman previews? That is NOT Superman.

Everyone loves blue jeans. Blue jeans on Clark Kent are pushing it though and definitely a big no-no on Superman.
