When I first heard the premise of Superman v Batman I was unimpressed. When I saw the trailer though I became intrigued. I look forward to seeing how this all plays out.

Mr. Moss you did not DO YOUR RESEARCH ! What you've written is incomplete and therefor a disservice to your readers. The character in 1932/33 that Siegel & Schuster created for the comic " The Reign of The Superman " went by the name of Bill Dunn - a homeless person who was picked at random by a mad scientist by the name of Professor Smalley.
He creates a formula and uses Bill as a guinea pig by which Bill does gain telepathic powers and wants to rule the world. Long story short , Bill kills Professor Smalley however the effects of the formula were TEMPORARY and wore off completely ! Bill goes back to being an ordinary man and returns to the bread line for food where the professor first found him.
S & S in 1938 re-created the character of " Superman " and sold it to DC Comics. The origin of which everyone is so familiar came soon enough and yes he at first was a bit of a hard-nosed vigilante but the editor at the time in 1940 persuaded them to have the character develop the traits we've come to know.
Your article blurs the two creations by S & S and gives a false rendering to those less informed.

Ask Your Neighbor: Ladies! What on Earth is in Your Purse?

The men in my life usually view my purse as a place of great mystery; sometimes with unfounded fear or trepidation. (Am I really that scary?) I've had men refuse to go into my purse when they were looking for something and had my complete cooperation.
