New Superman respect thread
Ok Here is the thing
I have been thinking about a revamped Post Crisis Superman respect thread, the one we have is all over the place.
It is a huge task, Superman appears in a ton of books, but I want to make a really good respect thread, because that is the best weapon We can use for debates, specially if it has context.
For example people claiming that Silver Surfer can turn the sun red, well first of all, he does not has anything like that, second Krypton Man has already faced Superman after HE TURNED THE SUN RED.
The two ideas here is to show that Superman still can fight in a red sun condition and to show just how powerful Krypton man was
But in order to do this type of respect thread WE have to read the books and not only look at the pretty pictures, we have seen this in scans posted in respect threads that have context behind and depending on that context the feat can be huge or simply a non feat.
Reading every single book and in the mean time being collecting feats is time consuming, plus this is for post crisis Superman, while We are doing this the new 52 Superman is getting more feats that some of us are not even aware
To simply put it, a COMPLETE post crisis Superman respect thread is a daunting task for ONE PERSON, it is not too hard if its done by several persons each one of them will be in charge of a certain period of time so we can do this in a chronological order.
So far I have read every Superman appearance issue from the Byrne reboot till War of the gods and I am planing to keep going till the return of Superman when I get there, I will put together all the feats I found
It will be great if someone is in charge of the next period which could be from the return of Superman to our worlds at war and then someone else takes care of owaw till final crisis or in any way you guys feel like it.
The point is so We can make a complete respect thread and for one person to do this alone is a lot of work specially if you factor in that We all have other things to do.
This way if We divide the post crisis superman in periods We can make a respect thread very fast
Lets say I read everything from the reboot to the return of Superman, I collect the feats sort them out, upload them into a media account and I make my period respect thread, at the same time everyone else involved are reading from another period and when they finishes they collects their feats, uploads them and make his respect thread of the period they choose
When all the respect threads are in someone else will pour them all together in a massive complete post crisis Superman respect thread.
If this idea works and We can make a team for Superman respect threads and then maybe tackle golden age Superman (Earth 2) and Silver age Superman (Earth 1)
Imagine having a complete Pre-Crisis Superman respect thread, we may be able to have Superman or kryptonian respects threads from the golden age till now with in 1 year
So what do you guys think? any ideas?
Thank You Prof. T.C McAbe, You are Superman!

Two Respect Threads, Pre- and Post-Crisis, that would be great. Since the story doesn't continues for those incarnations it would make sense, you could have everything there that is. But as you said that would be huge.
46 years for the Pre-Crisis stuff and 26 years for the Post-Crisis, that is a lot.

Yep, that is why is so hard for ONE person to do it all.
I read somewhere phillo wanted to make a Superman respect thread, but my best guess is that is a lot of work.
Even when I read just the first years I pulled out a lot of feats, and he has a bunch of crazy feats if you consider the context in which it was performed
People like to bring Superman getting affected by a voodoo doll, but they forget all the circumstances that were involved for Superman to get affected by that voodoo magic, which required for him to be in a weakened mental estate, a tanagarian artillery canon and DEADLY voodoo magic to KO Superman.
So if We can make a group with each individual in charge of a getting feats with context from certain periods it will be easy to do.
I actually have a complete [well, there's always stuff missing, but close enough] respect thread from COIE up until Flashpoint [maybe missing the last 4-5 months before that] for quite a while now, but I didn't post it, for various reasons. It has roughly 150 Microsoft Word pages.
I even sent some posters [abhi, pr, I think? correct me if I'm wrong, if any of you two read this] the version with the feats up until Infinite Crisis.

It's basically fully finished, so I can post it even now.
I didn't want to spend too much time on certain scenes/storylines [except what I felt were important ones], and there's sure to be some mistakes, so feel free [and this goes for everybody] to expand on whatever you feel like it's worth expanding on.
Try not to debate in the thread [at least at first, leave that for latter pages ]
I'll have it up by the end of the hour.

Any thoughts on a New 52 respect thread? Anyone interested in making it a team-effort among the fans on this section?
Editing to elaborate:
Seeing as Philo already knocked it out of the park with the PostC stuff, that just leaves the post flashpoint stuff. We could make it in here, and it could be linked to the respect forum, which means I could update it and maintain the format with no issues.
I was going to do it myself, but i'm opening to making it a group effort if anyone wants in.
