Hmmmm.....

Gene Hackman - not too bad, because he was first for the modern version

Kevin Spacey - I'll pass - couldn't hold it against Hackman

BvS - that "Facebook guy"....whatever his name is.....who cares!!....I thought he "tried to hard to please the DC fans" HE SUCKED!!

Smallville Lex - can't remember his name, but for a young TV version of LL....I kinda liked him.

Sooooo....Hackman for the movies....by far the best.....and.....Whatever the guy's name was for Smallville Lex....he gets a nice 2nd place.

IMO....*smiles*.....

@wraith - one could also slide in the "Blacksuited Superman" of the 90s, in addition to "Steel", "Cyborg Supes" and the "Kid Supes" too - right next to "curly haired surfer dude clone Supes"!

:o)

Looks like sexy Lexi might be wearing his green and purple "space suit".

I'm hopeful for the mattina variant.

The Kirkham cover is another dud

Graham Crackers Comic Books is offering Jim Lee covers for both Action 1000 and Immortal Men to be signed by Jim Lee for cover price plus shipping. Even with a "free" Jim Lee signature and another comic thrown in I cannot be coaxed into buying this horrible cover...

Even the teaser is better than all the covers this far! May be the winnah.

Love how the cover can still be purchased for less than $20 at unknown comics and some jackass has stupid high prices on eBay.

Here's the Mattina cover someone else mentioned was coming. It's at 7ate9 comics. (Well, on their facebook page.)

Is that Brainiac, do you think?

I'm going with the scott cover. It's palpable as an anniversary cover and a shop variant that I'm not going to have to pay double the cost in postage for as I'm in Australia.

When I think Action 1000, I don't think of of a cover with superman with red devil/demon eyes.

As much as I love Mattinas work, I'm passing on this one.

Maybe we could have a Bizzaro cover..that way when they mess it up they just be like "hey!, it's all wonky cause it's Bizzaro!"

Such a wasted opportunity by dc.. How many of us would have not being able to resist getting multiples but can now easily just settle with 1 copy due to absolutely terrible selection of covers. All quantity, no real quality.

As long as they don't blame lower than anticipated sales on a dying market.. This is all on the incredibly wasted opportunity to really do something cool.

Obviously he is engaged to Wonder Woman. Amazonian custom. Give a bracelet to your fiancé. Rings can't stop bullets.

Do we really need to see "another" origin story?

Why can't Doomsday kill him first, when he arrives and leaves his transport ship???....yeah.... that's the trick....spice it up a bit!!!

Dave Dorman? I don't know this guys work.

And since I'm now on the "no action comics 1000 artwork will ever live up to expectations"...superman looks like a kid...head is a bit square. Ans Loos looks like a man, baby.

If done right, this one had potential. Doesn't DC and the artists see what we see?

Just don't understand DC motivation on all these garbage covers.. No quality control on such a major event?

I don't hate this one. Do I like it enough to pay $20? No. Standard cover price, maybe.

dave dorman did most of dark horses cover work for their star wars books. the painted covers that is. and heavy metal covers and some interior work also. check out the covers for dark empire and dark empire 2 for reference. and met him at planet comiccon in February and heck of a guy. he is a fantastic artist.
