Who is your favorite? Superman, Superman Red,Superman Blue, Bizarro?
Yes I messed up the poll. I hit the wrong button. Sorry. Meant to say "I like all 4!" and some other options. Oh well.
Ok not sure how up people are on Superman. I personally think hes ok. Its kinda boring having a supehero that is nearly invincible. But like any superhero there tends to be other versions of the same person! I am sticking with the three well known or most popular versions.
So which of these four are your favorite? Here is info on each with a picture!
You know about this one. No info needed!
SUPERMAN BLUE/SUPERMAN RED:
The two "lesser" known versions.
The second incarnation of Superman Red and Superman Blue began as the next in a long line of 1990s-era publicity stunts, including "The Death of Superman", and "The Death of Clark Kent". The resulting storyline flopped with readers and critics.
Superman began to develop energy-based abilities after troubles he believed stemmed from a natural evolution of his original powers. His condition was unstable and eventually forced him to adopt a blue and white containment suit. He also gained the ability to turn his powers "off," though this left him as vulnerable as a normal human.
In the Superman Red/Superman Blue one-shot (February 1998), a trap created by the Cyborg-Superman caused Superman to split into two beings who represented different aspects of his personality, though each believed himself to be the original. After an encounter with the planet-threatening Millennium Giants, the two Supermen merged and Superman returned to his normal powers and original costume. The explanation is vague; Superman felt he was "rewarded" for saving the world, although he later claimed in JLA v.1 #20 that he returned to normal when his electromagnetic energy dispersed.

The version(s) most fans know about.
Due to a somewhat disjointed continuity, several versions of Bizarro have appeared in DC comic books, all of them inversions of Superman (or Superboy) with gray or chalk-white skin, a twisted sense of logic which typically manifests as a superficial "opposite" of anything Superman would do or say and a resultant speech pattern ("Me am going to kill you" would mean "I will save you" in Bizarro speech). Due to his imperfections, Bizarro is frequently a foe of Superman, but sometimes finds himself in the role of hero (in this case, an anti-hero).
The original Bizarro was created when Superboy was exposed to a "duplicate ray." In accordance with the science fiction concepts of Superman stories of the era, a subsequent version of Bizarro would relocate to "the Bizarro World," a cubical planet called Htrae [in keeping with Bizarro logic, Earth spelled backwards] which operated under "Bizarro logic" (it was a crime to do anything good or right) and which Bizarro populated with inverted versions of Superman’s supporting cast and other DC heroes.

I think you forgot the Red Son superman.
Red son is part of the Elseworld comics, whish explore alternative historys with marvel heros.
In Red son. the series explores what would have happened if superman landed and was raised in the soviet union.
where he ends up as the "Champion of the common worker" who fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact.

Yeah I wasn't sure about adding him. There are so many versions of Superman I didn't know which ones people really knew about. I know people knew about Bizarro (second most common). And Red and Blue supposedly are the third most common then after that its pretty spread out.
BTW for my pick I like Blues look, don't much care for his weakness.....going fast and dying because he turns into lightning. Kinda silly.
But I have a weak spot for Bizarro. At least the animated series version. He may be a "mean" version but he seems to still have a god heart and be more of a gentle kinda dumb brute.AO is about one thing. Going around in loops. No one cares to learn, they only care to live inside their boxes and ignore the truth!

Whatever! Keep your superpowers. BATMAN is where it's at!"We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men — not from men who feared to write, to associate, to speak and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular."
