Superman 2000

Tim Callahan and Chat Nevett over the past month took a look at a pitch that Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, Mark Waid, and Tom Peyer did called Superman 2000 that never ended up being published. They had lots of great ideas-and some that weren’t as great-but it’s a fascinating read. Much of it eventually turned into Morrison’s All Star Superman masterpiece, Geoff Johns is using a few of the ideas in his Action Comics, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Millar use some if he ever gets over to DC or is allowed to pitch his movie idea. Notice how their idea to break up Lois and Clark is almost exactly what Marvel ended up doing to Peter and Mary Jane.
