The Washington Post spoke
with Yang, who until recently was writing the sans-adjective Superman series. Among the subjects that turn up are:
Eventually, as the covers for Yang’s Superman No. 50 reveal, Superman gets back to basics with his powers and returns to his more standard look. Yet Yang hopes that his run spotlights that despite Superman’s not being so super for the last 10 issues, there’s not much difference amid the heroics whether the character’s less than powerful or all-powerful.
Does that include the red tights thrown away by editors for the sake of a PC look, resembling plastic armor? If not, then I don't see the point in stating "standard".
“The theme was: The core of him doesn’t change, no matter how hard his life gets,” Yang said. “So what we ended up doing in [No.] 50 was sort of reinforcing that visually, by giving him his cape back, giving him his s-curl back. We’re … visually saying: He didn’t really change throughout all the stuff that he went through. He didn’t change at the core of him.”
Maybe he didn't change, but the storytelling tone did, to one more politicized than anything seen in the past, if we refer to the Action Comics storylines of recent
. If Yang's stories relied on the same path, then he's only sugarcoating everything.
