Superman: Last Son of Krypton by Elliot S. Maggin available on-line

This was the novel released at the same time as the original Superman: Movie --- rather a shame it wasn't used as the plot for the movie, it's a much better story, probably the best Superman story I've ever read:

I have a Superman origin story in mind that I'd love to write one day. Only thing holding me back is that it would have very little chance of being picked up, and I don't know if legally I'd be able to self-publish it.

You shouldn't feel old. You're as old as you want to be.

Russell, you can write any story you want, so long as you don't infringe on any trademarks you're fine legally (but that is not legal advice and I am not a lawyer).

e.g., Last Son of Tomorrow by Greg van Eekhout:

http://www.tor.com/stories/2009/05/last-son-of-tomorrow

(which I really mis-like for the whole justified social-opposite-reaction thing --- people who believe in moral relativism have never had to confront evil on the back of a school bus --- no one is responsible for a person's actions but that person and nothing justifies doing harm to an innocent)

I'll consult a lawyer before I write anything that's related to Superman or any other members of the Justice League.
