Greetings True Believers!

I've been inspired by Domino Blue's post below so I'll be taking a rare dip into the DC pool.

Back in 2004 DC had a mini-series were Wildstorm hero and Superman analogue Mr. Majestic landed in the main DCverse.

Now, Mr. M is quite different then Clark and it's been rubbing this Earth the wrong way.

Stop me if you've heard this one before. Two superheroes walk into a diner...


Mr. Majestic walks into a diner and the place clears out. He orders all of the breakfast specials and since he doesn't have any local currency, crashes a pencil into diamonds.

Superman joins him.

I thought that was amusing and both men brought up good points. The whole mini is pretty good.

Request! If anyone knows what issues and series show Mr. Majestic in Metropolis interacting with Lois and the bunch, I'd love to know. Thanks!

Superman saying "we're cool" is so awesome I don't even have words for it.
P.S. How is Kyle still in costume if Mr. Majestic took his ring?

Superman should be able to guzzle even the hottest coffee

I absolutely positively adore how Majestros sticks out his pinky whenever he drinks his coffee. =)

What I liked about this was how non-judgmental it was.

Every other time you see heroes of different worlds / mindsets meet up, there's always that slightly disapproving "my-way-or-the-high-way" attitude -- even JLA / Avengers had Superman and Captain America sniping at each other all the time. Here, on both sides it seems to be more an 'agree-to-disagree' thing. Nice.

I hate hate HATE how this artist does noses, though.

What a beautiful scene! It really brings home how decent a hero Supes really is. I love that there was no fisticuffs, and that Supes was really trying to get his point across without being arrogant about it.

Thanks for posting this. I'm gonna have to track down these issues..

Wasn't it just earlier in this one? I don't remember too much interaction, but it had some issues before Superman showed up.

Now, this is the Superman I love and respect. He knows he is an outsider but he does his best to make his adopted world into a better place as well as enjoying of the pleasures of been on Earth.

THIS is how Superman should be written (and compare and contrast what Supes and the JLA did here in diffusing the situation with went down in the New Krypton mess where all the major super-heroes -including Diana who's supposed to be a diplomat - just showed up and demanded some rogue K's be handed over to them without any negotiation or discussion and expecting Supes and Kara to be cool with it).

This is also why I had severe problems with the Mary Marvel storyline in Countdown and Final Crisis where her going over to the darkside was treated as a joke and not taken seriously- even within the story itself, even by people like the Riddler. In reality, especially after what happened with Black Adam in 52, if ANY single member of the Marvel Family ever went rogue the whole world would be on alert and the JLA better get out the big guns and take it SERIOUSLY. Except DC itself doesn't, so the characters didn't and the story sucked.

Loving the exchange but for some reason Majestic comes off more likeable than superman.I'm a sucker for guys who drink their coffee with their pinky sticking out.=p Did majestic and Wonder Woman ever interact? I figure that they would absolutely hate each other.

Wait, Kyle's in his post-Ion (The first time as Ion) costume. That means this is the time period where he can remotley control his ring and has rigged it so that it always has some power? How the hell can anybody take it from him, even if they're Superman-level strong?

I checked Wikipedia, and it says Majestic in the DCU was in Action Comics #811, Adventures of Superman #624, and Superman #201, as well as a 4-issue miniseries.

Okay, so first,
when in doubt, pinky out.
I like Majestic. I haven't seen him before but even if they tell his character as one with cut and dry justice, he isn't cruel, plus his methods come more pragmatic than over superior.
