I recently read an old interview with Paul Cornell where he said Mark Millar is responsible for his current comic book career. Millar called him up after watching an episode of DOCTOR WHO he wrote, "Human Nature," offering to connect him with Marvel editors. Before that, he'd been trying to get into the industry but not really getting anywhere.

So if Millar weren't a big name, none of Cornell's work for Marvel and DC would exist. That's funny.

Amidst dealing with various disasters and crimes, "Superior" handles a bully who beat up his best friend.

Millar's got a long track record of respect for Superman - many people consider his Superman Adventures comics the best thing he ever wrote, and his Superman:Red Son is my favourite elseworlds fiction that isn't New Frontier.
Garth Ennis has a similar thing - his depiction of Superman in Hitman, for example, is pretty respectful.

Right. So there may yet be hope. (Or, alternately, he's chosen to write a Superman expy so he can do all the horrible things to him that he would NEVER do to Supes. But I prefer going the hope route.)
