Homework (A Follow-Up Post)

For extra credit: compare Morrison/Quitely's treatment of Superman as a character with Brendan McCarthy's inclusion of him as an icon in this piece. Pay special attention to the ways in which the All Star Superman team explore the character from within his fictional universe while McCarthy evokes him as a two dimensional figure from the past, thus positioning himself as a 'pop'-artist outside the superhero genre (for that page at least).
