Superman of Earth 23
Grant Morrison is one of the most unpredictable writers in the entire comic book industry—it’s impossible to know what’s going on in that mind of his! On that note, no one could have possibly expected his introduction of the Superman of Earth 23 in Action Comics #9! An obvious nod to President Barack Obama, Calvin Ellis is both commander-in-chief of the U.S. and that particular reality’s preeminent super hero (however, the world isn’t aware of that small detail). Calvin made only one appearance, but he garnered plenty of recognition and is a character that needs to take flight again!
