Examples of "superman_birthright"
Superman: Birthright is a twelve-issue comic book limited series published by DC Comics in 2003 and 2004, written by Mark Waid and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu.
Elements of "Superman: Birthright" can be found in the film "Man of Steel" (2013), starring Henry Cavill as the titular character. Clark Kent's discovery that the "S" symbol was a symbol for "hope" on Krypton is inspired by "Birthright".
Comics he has worked on include "Adam Strange", "X-Men", "Star Wars", "Superman: Birthright", "The Matrix Comics", "Nextwave", "New Avengers", "Northlanders", "American Vampire", and "Nemesis". Animation projects have included key color design on the first three seasons of the Batman (2004) animated series at Warner Brothers and various duties on the fourth "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film.
"Birthright" also reinvents the Silver Age concept of Luthor befriending Clark Kent as a young man. During a failed attempt to communicate with Krypton, an explosion erupts which singes off Luthor's hair. Waid's original intention was to jettison the notion of Lex Luthor being an evil businessman, restoring his status as a mad scientist. He ultimately conceded, however, that the CEO Luthor would be easier for readers to recognize. In "Birthright", Luthor remains a wealthy corporate magnate; in contrast to Byrne's characterization however, LexCorp is founded upon Luthor's study of extraterrestrial life, thereby providing a link between him and Superman. In the retrospective section of the "Superman: Birthright" trade paperback, Waid explains:
As outlined in a backup profile in the "52" weekly series, the post-"Action Comics" #850 Lex Luthor in this continuity is the son of business mogul Lionel Luthor and his socialite spouse, Leticia. As shown previously in "Superman: Birthright" and the pre-Crisis stories, he spends part of his adolescence in Smallville, Kansas, where he meets Clark Kent, Lana Lang, and Pete Ross. In the 2009–2010 series "", however, Lex, his father, and his sister Lena Luthor are poor and Lionel is an abusive alcoholic.
In 2002, DC Comics Executive Editor Dan DiDio asked writer Mark Waid to reimagine Superman's origin, making the character relevant for the 21st century. After taking the assignment, Waid's goal was to present a definitive volume on Superman's origin that was familiar to longtime fans as well as casual readers who were more familiar with Superman through television and film adaptations than through comics. Starting in 2003, the new origin story was published in the twelve issue "Superman: Birthright" limited series, written by Waid and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu.
Comic Book Resources gave each issue in the series between 3.5 and 5 stars, stating "Johns and Frank are setting out to give us the absolute version of Superman's origin. Once and for all, or at least for the next so many years, this will be the book to come back to for Superman's origin story." iFanboy gave the finale to the series full ratings, stating that the series as a whole is "a conservative retelling when compared to, say, Mark Waid and Leinil Yu's "Superman: Birthright". So if your expectation was for a revolution or even evolution, this book is decidedly a failure. But that's not the only ambition a storyteller ought to have. If you look at "Secret Origin" instead as a reexamination of Superman and his core relationships, I think it's pretty satisfying.
In 2003, the story was finally replaced by the 12-issue limited series, "", which added on elements to the origin story of Superman. DC stated that "Birthright" and "Man of Steel" formed the full "official" origin for Superman. "Birthright" made use of many elements of "Man of Steel" that tied into the other series, but also introduced new aspects ignored by Byrne and thus brought back various pre-Crisis elements (such as Lex and Clark as childhood friends in Smallville). The Kara Zor-El version of Supergirl was also reintroduced. In 2006, the DC Universe spanning story, "Infinite Crisis" made further changes to Superman, which left questions once again about Superman's origin. It wasn't until then-monthly "Superman" writer Kurt Busiek stated that the post-"Infinite Crisis" Superman origin had yet to be established. After the conclusion of "Infinite Crisis", this origin was finally explained in the 2009 mini-series "" ending 20 years of "The Man of Steel" being the official origin.
