"Superman himself seems to have been a bit lost for a number of years, it's not the character I remember. What made the
character appealing to me has been stripped away in a tide of revisionism. Given that I was somebody who sort of
helped bring in the trend of revisionism in comics, I've got to take some of the blame for that. But it seems to me that there
might have been a case of the baby being thrown out with the bathwater with the original Superman."
"What it was with Superman
was the incredible range of imagination on display with that original character. A lot of those concepts that were attached to
Superman were wonderful. The idea of the
Bottled City of Kandor,
Krypto the Superdog, Bizarro, all of it. These are fantastic ideas, and it was that which kept me going back each month to
Superman when I was ten. I wanted to find out more about this incredible world with all of these fascinating details."
