I would’ve voted for Man of Steel but I wrote down Kryptonian instead because I don’t think that’s a nick name that is used very often. When it is used though, it’s mostly used by supervillains like Brainiac,Lobo,Darkside, or Lex.
I do think that the Man of Steel nick name is the best for Superman. 🙂

What, no votes for Action Ace? 😉

Seriously though, I think Man of Steel, Man of Tomorrow, and Last Son of Krypton are all great. When I still had hopes for a Man of Steel movie sequel, I was hoping WB would use Man of Tomorrow or Last Son of Krypton for the title. Oh well.

I went with Man of Tomorrow. Man of Steel is a classic, but it’s not enough to describe Superman in this day and age. Smallville is cute, but only when Lois uses it and the rest are very much reliant on context and don’t work outside of stories. Man of Tomorrow is what I see Superman as; our (idealized) next step in evolution, if we ever expect to build a prosperous and lasting world.
