Recently I’ve been noticing a lot of discussion online about Superman. He’s been getting a lot of attention with the Rebirth event, with DC even putting out more comics featuring the Man of Steel and many of his supporting cast. But one topic really has grabbed my attention, and that is people saying that the current version of the hero is “not my Superman.”
I always like to point out that this is a tough time for Superman. He’s incredibly powerful as well as unbelievably moral. You just KNOW he’s going to do the right thing all the time. That can make for dull reading sometimes! One of the best things to come out of Convergence was Superman coming to The New 52 universe with his wife Lois and their son. That book did very well on many levels, so it made sense for DC to continue their story in DCYou!
These days, the Man of Steel has really been struggling in the comics. How can a person as powerful as Superman actually be someone we can relate with? And he’s so moral that we just know what he’ll do next because he always makes the correct choice! How can someone like that be at all interesting? At least, that’s how the reasoning goes. Well, the first part of this miniseries really made me feel for Clark Kent. I figure you’ll have the same reaction if you give this issue a chance!
And you thought Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was going to be an epic fight! Well, tonight begins the latest battle between two DC Comics properties on local television – Gotham up against Supergirl! It’s the kind of thing that ends up discouraging comics fans from wanting their heroes on the small screen.
Some superheroes seem to have a dynasty behind them. The same powers and persona appear to go on for generation after generation. I used to love the old Batman stories written by Alfred as he imagined what Batman II and Robin II would be like, for example. Well, The Mantle looks at this possibility in depth, with all kinds of people inheriting the powers of the Mantle. At the same time, however, they gain the same destructive enemy, and he keeps wreaking havoc with whoever this power selects.
The heroes, they are a’ changing! If you’ve been reading the main titles featuring both Batman and Superman, you know that the heroes we see in this book are radically different from the ways they were about two months ago. Superman’s powers are downgraded and there’s a different guy in the big armored Bat-suit. Of course, with two different people interacting in new situations, the relationship between these characters is going to be back to square one. That can be fun to read, though!
Valentine’s Day is almost here and in honour of a holiday celebrating love, here’s a list of couples in love from comics we love. Major Spoilers presents you with Top 5 Comic Book Couples!
As reported very recently here on MajorSpoilers.com, Supergirl is flying into a television series on CBS. She’s joining programs including Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Flash, Arrow, Constantine and Agent Carter. Hey, who has time for any shows that are NOT comics-related anymore?
Just visit your local grocery store and you’ll discover that Valentine’s Day is coming soon. I’m always happy when that holiday goes by because it means February is half over, that month bringing the worst weather of the year where I live on the East Coast. Second, I’m not a big fan of love stories.
Operation Save Clark Kent nabbed a bunch of images from the upcoming “Idol” episode of Smallville, that features the debut of the Wonder Twins.Â They don’t particularly look like twins, or aliens, nor does it look like they form water, or an eagle.Â Also absent is a monkey.Â At least they are wearing purple!Â The other preview images at the site looks like the twins are going to try and pull a “I am Spartacus!” moment at some point… via OSCK
DC has released a sneak peek of the upcoming Superman: Secret Origins #1 issue.Â While a lot of people might get pretty excited about what awaits after the jump, all I can say is it reminds me a lot of one of the season finales of Smallville.
Geoff Johns announced during the Smallville panel that he is writing an episode called Society that introduces the Justice Society of America to the Smallville universe. Also announced during the panel is word that Allison Mack and Tom Welling will both direct episodes this season.Â And as we hinted at the other day, Clark Kent will don the Superman suit in the season’s debut episode.Â The producers do want the series to go to a 10th season, and are hoping the shows move to Friday night will help that.The appearance of Zod, played by Callum Blue, will help that as
