What would I do *after* I fainted...?

I'd drop pretty much anything to do Supes, because the character has been an
icon to me since I could read. What I'd try to do is hew close to the kind of
characterization you saw in Alan Moore's "Whatever Happened to the Man of
Tomorrow?" which concluded the pre-Byrne Superman (and the post-Byrne Supes I
don't even recognize anymore).

They mucked with the character because they said they couldn't do anything
interesting with him. Moore proved them wrong.
