Don’t get me wrong, “Man of Steel” might be the best movie of the summer, of all time for that matter; but, seriously –

General Zod again? At least it isn’t Lex Luthor.
Surely there must be some other bad guy they could dig up from the over 80 years that Superman has been kicking asses. Why not Mister Mxyzptlk? Brainiac? Bizarro Superman? What are your choices? You might even venture into other franchise territory if you can come up with a premise: Superman vs. the Borg, the Nazis, Darth Vader, Loki, Mothra, Dr. Doom, Dr. No, Dr. Mabuse, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde... Send us your suggestions and we’ll post and print the best on June 9.
NOTE TO THOSE WHO HAVE SUBMITTED ENTRIES FOR BEST HIGH SCHOOL MOVIES: We'll be running the winners on June 16 -- sorry for the confusion!
