I never liked the Frank Miller version of Superman. He gave Batman too much brain power and Superman too little. The picture above,which was from the 1986 hit graphic novel,”The Dark Knight returns”,shows Batman beating Superman to a pulp.
Miller’s depiction of Superman as a government stooge & naive but powerful boy scout grates on my nerves. For a much better rendition of Supes,refer to All-Star Superman by Grant Morrison,and Bats gets his just desserts in “Batman R.I.P.”
Superman is much better than the leftist Frank Miller depicts him,he deserves better treatment.
Miller just wants to humiliate Supes by putting him at odds with Batman,then making the former look like a fool. Bruce maybe cunning,but don’t sell Supes short. Nuff said.
I think it’s way off base to consider Miller a leftist. Miller, who is a great artist and writer, is unfortunately also a near-Fascist. His criticisms of constitutional law, the media, and politicians would fit nicely inside a Sean Hannity rant.
