Rob Liefeld is notorious for ripping off ideas from other characters. Youngblood was formed from a story he pitched to DC Comics for Teen Titans. And he's also made numerous Wolverine rip-offs I'm sure. So I guess it was only a matter of time before he started ripping off classic heros, like, say....SUPERMAN! But no! Wait! Let's call him SUPREME! Yeah! That's like SUPerman that's extREME! SUPREME!
Well, the one good thing that came out of this is that Alan Moore did an entire retcon of this character and made him seem more like the Superman from the Silver Age, which I have a yet another soft spot in my heart for. But yes...I'm on a roll now. Next!
