I bought and enjoyed the issues Steel appeared in for the so-called Reign of Supermen. After Superman came back, Steel got his own series, which I only looked at marginally. The Superman issues he was in were done by Louise Simonson and John Bogdonove, whose work I already liked, and I didn't like that they took the Superman symbol off of Steel's costume at the end of Reign. Hence, I restored it for this drawing.
that Shaquille O'neal movie, but I still like the character. S-symbol notwithstanding, Steel was often pretty awesome in Grant Morrison's expanded JLA lineup. In typical Grant Morrison fashion, John's inventing genius grew to mythic proportions... but it didn't often happen until he got his butt kicked first. Steel is an example of the kind of D-list character I would LOVE to get to work with. He's loaded with potential that so far has only been hinted at...
So if you know any decision-makers at DC, give 'em my info!
