Jason, like many, went to see Man of Steel this past weekend, and shares his thoughts on the movie.
Or – “The Father Who Makes Us All A Little Jealous…”
I haven’t seen this new ‘Man Of Steel’ movie, but from the advertising, I suspect that it might have something to do with Superman. Having read a few comics with Big Blue in them over the years, I had been thinking about one to cover this weekend when I was suddenly reminded that it was also Father’s Day. Given those two parameters, there was one clear winner, but I’ll warn you in advance: I had to bust out my handkerchief, and you might as well, when you hear about “The Secret World of Jonathan Kent.” Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
X returns in a limited series to Dark Horse comics. The vigilante X hunts the corrupt businessmen and criminals of Arcadia. Equipped with his own brutal sense of justice, X has left a long trail of blood and bodies in his city. He trusts no one except himself, and leaves a red X on his victims’ faces, the same red X on his mask. With the body count rising, the police attempt to track the elusive killer. X is also hunted by a former journalist named Leigh Ferguson, who reports her findings through her web site. However, X does not want to be found, and will do anything to keep it that way, including murder.
Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer, with some help from Christopher Nolan, team up to bring their vision of a modern Superman tale, and what may possibly be the start of a DC cinematic universe. The trio all have experience in making great movies starring cape donning protagonists, so this outing should be no different. Find out if they repeat success with the big, blue boy scout after the jump! (Spoilers below).

Superman Unchained #1 is DC’s highest profile launch since the Justice League of America debut a few months back, dovetailing perfectly with the release of the Man of Steel film.
