I saw Neal Adams’ cover for Superman #205 in September and have never identified more with the Man of Steel. Here is the original Adams cover.

Believe it or not, the project was short-lived, but led to some great experiences and experience. I was 12-years-old when Birds of Prey premiered on The WB in 2002.
