And yet Marvel was very successful with telling the same old orgin story in Ultimates.
Yeah, because having Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch sleeping together was such a success.
And either way, are you really going to try and tell me Ultimate Spider-Man is as different from regular Spidey, continuity aside, as they're making Superwhine here compared to Superman?
Hell DC's done it several times in the Modern age with Superman before. Jim Byrne's retelling in fact retconned him EVER BEING SUPERBOY.
Well all it did, really, was re-tell his origin story, tone down his powers from how they'd grown during the Silver Age and give Clark Kent a bit more of an aggressive streak.
Hell they've killed the man and brought him back.... I mean SERIOUSLY.
To show that not even four Supermen could ever replace the original.
Hell, the entire Death and Funeral storylines were all about people like you being all "Haaah, Superman. What a dork." and then going "Oh no... I never appreciated what great things he did until he was dead. I'm such a horrible person."
