Superheroes II

Which superheroes did I miss the first time?

(xxxi) Grant Morrison's Zenith presents superheroes as media celebrities.

(xxxii) Thom Zahler's Love and Capes presents superheroes' private lives.

(xxxiii) A team of DC script writers presented the Death and Return of Superman with subtlety and imagination. Later, they did not too bad a job on the Wedding of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

(xxxiv) Alan Moore's Captain Britain likened the Marvel Universe persecution of super powered mutants to the Holocaust. It pioneered the annihilation and reconstruction of a superhero. Its Fury who kills superheroes resembled the later Doomsday who killed Superman. It presented, among its multiversal counterparts to the title character, Captain Airstrip One who says, "Capbrit, doubleplusgood usmeet."

(xxxv) Readers can continue the list.
