The comics have shown us many alternate takes on Superman throughout his 81 Year History. We’ve seen Superman from a different Earth with Red Son Superman, a Superman from the future with Superman Beyond, and a new person putting on the “S” and becoming a new Superman with Steel. And of course the MANY other versions. For me personally my favorite alternate take on Superman is the Kingdom Come version of the character!
Kingdom Come version is also one of my favorite versions. Alex Ross’s drawings really compliments the strong-willed, stoic, leader version of Superman in Kingdom Come.
Cosmic Armor Superman, one flick would decimate Darkseid.
I really enjoyed the portrayal of Hernan Guerra in Gods and Monsters. I thought he was charming, in a way, but very complex and sympathetic. He definitely made choices that our Clark wouldn’t have but I don’t think it made him any less heroic.
Injustice superman. Very realistic
I’ve always liked Red Son Superman
Superman: Secret Identity is one of my favorite alternate takes on the Man of Steel
For me, probably Red Son Superman, or maybe Speeding Bullets Superman.
If Electrical Blue Superman were an option, I’d choose him.
My favorite is E13 Etrigan. It’s two of my favorite characters rolled into one, what’s not to love?
@El-Jor, I also say Secret Identity Superman. That’s such an amazing story.
Alternate Supermen I highly enjoy (among others):
-Earth 23 Superman
-Tangent Universe Superman
Alternate Superman appearances/uniforms I highly enjoy (again, among others):
-the 90’s take on Superman blue and red
-his post Our Worlds at War suit
-his regular New 52 suit
Hernan Guerra from Gods & Monsters has felt the most powerful & iconic retelling of Superman.
This E13 Superman/Etrigan combo sounds interesting. Where’d that appear?
Check out The Multiversity. Sadly they’ve never gotten a true series of their own.
Hurm… I think the version where he lands on Apokalips is cool in concept, but poor in execution. I like Red Son a whole lot, but I’m going to go with a classic: New Frontier Superman.
Some awesome choices here! The Gods and Monsters version is one I forgot about. He’s really cool. The “Apokoliptian Superman” is also cool…his look is the best part, Superman meets Darth Vader lol!
I think from a human point is injustice Superman when the love of life is killed. I mean how would anyone with that power react
Red son, he represents a Soviet Chad
