If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Superman is responsible for laying the foundation for what we would come to know as the "superhero costume", so it stands to reason that every time anything about his changes; it makes headlines and gets people talking. But for a character that’s been around as long as Superman, it’d be silly not to expect him to mix it up every now and then and try on a new outfit. But they can’t all compete with his classic look.

Smallville's Lex Luthor, Michael Rosenbaum, made it abundantly clear on Twitter Wednesday that he is the absolutely most qualified actor to play Lex Luthor in the already-green-lit Man of Steel sequel.
Get ready for Truth, Justice, and the Television Way, because just in time for Superman's latest big screen adventure, Warner Bros. is releasing a pretty massive collection of the Man of Steel's small screen exploits...
If there's been one thing preventing Superman from becoming a reality -- beyond, of course, the existence of a planet called Krypton and a child being rocketed from said planet as it exploded, landing on Earth to discover that he has superpowers as he grows to become a morally-upright, handsome male humanoid -- it's that there is no actual town in Kansas called Smallville...
