Written by Edward Gross. Originally published in 2000, Superman vs. Terminator was a four-issue miniseries written by Alan Grant that brought the Man of Steel together with.... well, the man of steel. What follows is an interview with the writer which was conducted back in the day.
Initially it sounded a lot like a fanboy's idea of a wet dream: take comic icon Superman and pit him in battle against moviedom's reigning cybernetic killing machine, the Terminator. It's a high-concept idea that really shouldn't work, but does remarkably well in the DC/Dark Horse four-issue miniseries, SUPERMAN VS. TERMINATOR [originally published back in 2000]. Hey, we're not alone in our first impression. Series writer Alan Grant pretty much felt the same way when he was approached about turning the concept into a script.
