RENAISSANCE MAN NO MORE

MOS120clarkjournoMOS120clarklovesLois

When I was young I didn’t know what a Renaissance man was, but I knew what a Superman was/is/should be.

Superman to me was more than just a brawling alien who fought for Earth and its human inhabitants.  Being the Last Son of Krypton allowed this being to possess all the knowledge of the known galaxies. What does such a man do with all those advantages?  How can mere humans ever hope to relate to him?  How can a reading audience ever trust him to never be corrupted?  The answer is in his origins.  He took on a human identity.

Superman or Superdouche?

OR THIS?:

If you have read Superman #27, you know what I’m talking about.  Scott Lobdell has taken this character and made him into something no superhero should ever even verge on – a complete douche.

Aside from Scott Lobdell not having any idea what Superman is about and that he uses his own personal voice to animate Clark, what else could be going on here – storywise.  I think I’ve discussed the possible political behind-the-scenes machinations quite enough.  Besides, they are moot or will be come this summer.  Oh, there will still be politics and power plays but at least they seem to be turning in favor of Superman fans and their beloved Clark Kent.

Why would Superman, Clark, not trust Lois Lane to keep her mouth shut about his secret?  We know that Lois has had a history of keeping the secret even from Clark.  Why in this instance doesn’t he trust her?

So this happened . . .

One of my friends, who is on Twitter, and I . . . we made a pact to watch Justice League War.  So with filled wine glass in hand I leaped into the breech and bade goodbye to my loved ones.  My friend held my lifeline as the animated figures flickered on the screen.  After many cringes, moans of dismay and gulps of wine to numb the anguish, I finished the 75 minutes of absurdity.  I had read the Justice League books so knew it was a very shallow story with not much character development.  Although there was tons for Cyborg and since Shazam was in this version, Billy was in it a lot more than the actual main story.

Save your eyes, your soul, and love for any of the characters involved.  Don’t even touch the DVD or Blu ray case.  It might be hazardous to your health.
