Mark Waid would kill to write Superman and he has said it before in numerous interviews. Also the Man of Steel has seen better days. The Superman titles have not been the sales juggernaut that it once was. Hell even I'm feeling burned out by the whole "Grounded" storyline. I guess what I'm trying to get off my chest is Mark Waid should be the next guy to take a stab at the main Superman book. It would be a win-win situation for DC Comics. Mark Waid has been known to breathe new life into characters that can seem kind of stale. Now I'm not knocking JMS, but I didn't really care for the execution of his story.
Look at the body of work Waid has out there. He had an awesome run on The Flash for DC. At Marvel he gave us some of the best comics of the decade in the 1990's with his work on Captain America. Remember how vocal fans were when Marvel head Bill Jemas tried to run him off Fantastic Four? People were ready to drop that book by the boatloads. That being said Waid has a handle on Superman and his mythos and I don't think there is anyone out there who DC should announce as the next ongoing Superman Writer. Make it happen DC, make it happen.
Tash is one of the Founders of The Verbal Mosh and seems to be stuck on the 1990's.
