If there were a version of "New 52" Superman with him having a mullet, the Man of Steel would be a bigger joke. :P

Amazing! I remember my very first Superman action figure was one of the ones with the post Doomsday ass whooping long hair version. Ah the 90's.

This picture STILL looks great! I liked the cards you did for the Superman toyline. :)

Can you do this same piece but with short hair? :)

Wow! I had nearly all the toys from that action figure set where you painted the cards that came with them...I have a soft spot for the long hair look on superman...I first started collecting comic books around the time superman came back from the dead in the "Rein of the Supermen" storyline, and figured the new long hair look was gonna be permanent, so I guess I just got it in my 13 year old head that that's how superman was gonna look from now on And it stuck...lol the artwork you did for the cards was incredible tho' I got a couple superman pics in my gallery, but my art is more cartoony and leans mores towards The Ed Mcgueniss style of superman art (even tho I actually prefer the more detailed artwork of like Dan Jurgens or Jerry Ordway)

Great piece. I see Superman's trunks are nearly as far up his torso as Simon Cowell's trousers...

That was how they did them back then, if you look at Chris Reeve's Superman the trunks were that high too =P

Yeah the mullet wasn't a good look for him.

Was his cape going around his shoulders at the time, or was that your interesting little touch?

I was checking the books and Jurgens and other guys were drawing it like that. In hindsight I wish I went conventional with it, but it was my first Superman and wasn't really comfortable. The cape bothers me today.

Wondered if you ever did anything for DC. I actually wasn't all that thrown off by the new style, as short lived as it was. In my mind it was far less an atrocity than when they made him all blue and gave him a completely new set of powers. I was still a pup back then, I may have actually cried over it... or that might have been when they killed him off, don't recall.

Long hair with supes just doesn't make sense. Of course, you ask Cho, as you know and he'll say it fits him perfectly... being the emo 'super hero' that cries all the time. What a pansy lol
