In the latest Superman Homepage Member Poll we asked you the following question:
What Superman items do you collect the most?
It appears as though Comic Books, the original format Superman was first introduced in, is still the most popular form of collectible amongst the Man of Steel’s fans, receiving half the votes.

Over the last 25 years, I’ve sunk at least $5,000.00 (US) into a comic collection that is +/-90% Superman Family characters. Do you know how many lawns I had to mow when I was 11 to get that started?! And then I’ve got a few odds and ends of other Superman stuff; Christopher Reeve and Terrence Stamp Superman II figures (the copyright date on Superman’s foot is 2011, so we’re not talking originals here), a few DC Universe figures, shirts, hoodies, a pair of onesie pajamas that I will fit in again (pass the salad please), and of it’s been… Read more »
Laser disc? That’s awesome! Everything i have ( which is a lot) is pretty regular except for my superman arcade machine and the autographs i get when i meet actors at comic con. I have quite a few. Tom welling, Brandon Routh, Dean Cain, Tyler Hoechlin, john Byrn, john Schneider and Michael Rosembaum. I really want Henry Cavill’s.
I’ve met and gotten pictures with Welling, Rosenbaum, and Routh (would you like to hear my “he made me look short” story, lol). John “the Devil” Byrne (I didn’t give him that nickname, I just agree) is interesting. I got Tim Sale to autograph my copy of Superman for All Seasons a few years ago…
And LaserDisc shall rise again!! (Please, I need to believe this)
Yes! Rise of the laser discs!!!
And yes…welling made me look like an ant! Lol!!! I’ve never considered myself short. That dudes a beast!
With Welling, I just got a little jealous because my wife drooled all over him, lol. But, and I’m going to get mileage out of the story for years to come, I met met Brandon Routh at a con. And he was ridiculously nice and charming; I’m not a habitual viewer of Legends of Tomorrow, so I was honestly surprised, as he was more than a little restrained in Superman Returns. So short version; Brandon Routh is an absurdly nice guy. But he was a little bit shorter than advertised, I was maybe half an inch taller than him, hardly… Read more »
You are so lucky to have met Brandon afriend. I hope that I will get the chance to meet him someday. 🙂 I’m encouraging everyone to support Brandon’s new Superman for this upcoming crossover in hopes that we will see more of his new Superman after the crossover. So I’m hoping that everyone will support him through Twitter or Facebook or Instagram or whatever it is that will help support his Superman. I’m trying to voice my fandom for his Superman, but my voice won’t be enough. I believe that together, with everyone’s support for Brandon’s Superman, those in charge… Read more »
For me it’s comics. Rebirth brought me back and Bendis made me leave.
I’m sorry to hear that MattComics. Hopefully someday soon you will return to Superman comics. I’m a little behind on my comics but from what I’ve heard about from what other fans have said on what Bendis has done with Superman, I’m not liking the sound of it.
I hope so to. I have loved the character since I was 5 years old but I don’t want to spend money on something I’m not enjoying, a creative team I’m not into, or a creative direction that I think is extremely wrong headed. Besides, the only real way to voice your opinion to DC is with your wallet.
With Bendis I would not recommend his stuff for anything except Ivan Reis’s art on the Superman title. When/if they get rid of Bendis and his direction I would really love it if they kept Reis on.
I read “Rebirth” and my brain said “Birthright”, and I had a whole salvo about how mediocre I found it ready to go… Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need some more coffee.
I wish i had seen this one. I collect everything. I work from home and my office is riddled in superman paraphernalia. I even have a superman arcade machine.
It would be great if we can add a photo sharing feature so we could all share our collectibles, memorabilia, and stuff about Superman. While my collection is not world changing, I’m pretty happy and proud about it.
