"If your ideas go into wilder, Mort Weisinger/psycho-dramatic areas, it gets more difficult for an average, overworked editor to recognize the subversion (if you can call his pacifism 'subversion'), even though it’s right there in front of their face. And, on top of that, no one really gave two shits about Superman comicbooks back in, what was it, 2003…? Ah, the good ol’ days…" -- Joe Casey

Calm down Joe, it's an interesting take but you're not reinventing the wheel mate ;p

It's one thing to say "Superman never throws a punch in my stories because I believe in pacifism." It's another to say "Superman has renounced violence and embraced pacifism" at the same time he was beating the hell out of Radion in SUPERMAN and Zod's forces in ACTION COMICS. You can do the former because it's subtle, and certainly restraint in the use of his godlike power is a very Superman thing. The latter... raises QUESTIONS.

(Side note: how confusing was it that Joe Casey and Joe Kelly were working on Superman series simultaneously?)

Even more confusing to me is that the former shares his name with one of my friends, of whom I always think first when I read the name written out.
