Me ? What'd make you say that ?
I think this Superman looks better indeed cause he is THE powerfull and almighty Superman, the real man of steel who is still a "country boy" but full of energy and hope. The one in Grayson is old and I'm quite sure I've already seen in comics that old Superman who in a way has become less sympathetic for getting more "blasÃ©" regarding all his years of fights where the men haven't changed much ... I prefer this dark and disillusioned Superman to the original one I find too "boy scout"...
Yeah well I'm not too pleased to see Superman age that much in only a human lifetime. Superman is supposed to age very slowly. I haven't seen many comics showing an old and "blase" Superman.
Plus in any comics I see (but I admit that my Superman comic knowledge is highly perfectible), even if Superman gets tired of the neverending battle against crime and vilainy, he retires himself in his fortress of solitude or some lonely place, but never
changes sides and help criminals or hinders other crime-fighters in their mission, as shown in Grayson. Come on ! Superman is the epitome of the positive super-hero, always merciful, trusty to his word, merry and optimistic about human nature. Depicting a "dark superman", embittered, scheming, and such, is just plain nonsense.
This said, I'm not too happy with the performance of the actor that plays Superman's part in World Finest. He seems a bit too innocent and stupid - or childish, or lost and overwhelmed by the situation (that is : impersonating Supes). He is physically convincing, but sometimes I feel that I'm watching Clark Kent in tights, not Superman.
