Earth 10: Superman

Superman - yeah, he's Superman. Jason is still wondering which aspect of the character to play up, but the only thing that might surprise recent readers is we gave him back his really high speed Space Flight and Time Travel aspects because the like the idea of Superman having adventures in different times and planets. We changed the Time Travel rules to make it harder to get closer to the now (which would be more useful for any immediate plot) while easier to get farther away, so the closest Superman can get to absolute now is the Civil War or the mid 22nd century, but he can also get to the 31st century (Hello, Legion of Super Heroes!) and 6000 BCE.
