Now that I’ve got how badly DC is fucking Superman on the brain, I may as well finally finish watching the last season of Smallville.
You’d think ten years of Smallville would have desensitized me to Superman being completely screwed up, but it hasn’t. Probably because I always had the real thing to look back at.
Oooh! This character’s appearance makes up for Booster Gold awfulness in the last episode.
I’ll never stop finding it hilarious that Superman’s design, so often referred to as an American Icon, was originally created by a Canadian.
So what do I geek out with tonight? The Superman films, or the X-Men films? Oh the life of a single nerd.
Just recently, a fairly straightforward Superman story, published in Superman #900, kicked up a storm of controversy. In the story, written by David Goyer, Superman stands in solidarity with pro-democracy protesters, in a nation which is clearly an analogue for Mubarek’s Egypt.
Whilst Superman is extremely careful not to interfere physically, this act of solidarity forced him to question his US citizenship. Don’t ask me how a bloke nobody knows the name of was a citizen in the first place, but apparently he was. Read more about the issue over at Comics Alliance.
That about sums it up.
