Man of Steel (2013 film)
   OK, let's get this out of the way right up front. Superman is 80 years old. (Not the character, the franchise.) That means there are 80 years of history and tradition surrounding the …

Man of Steel (2013 film)
Let me first say that I've always believed that Superman as a whole is somewhat dull. Supes is bogged down by the fact that he ignited the Golden Age of Comics. He's an almighty being with few, …
reviewed Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. June 23, 2013
The Justice League animated series had a fantastic story arc called “The Justice Lords” as far as I could remember. Alternate universes and multi-verses have always been a part of comic book …

Those of you who remember Christopher Reeve's "campy" Superman films of the 1970's can forget anything you saw in those films.  There is nothing "campy" in this film and …

   I don’t ask much when filmmakers go for comic book adaptations. I just hope that A) the filmmakers would preserve the essence of the character and source material. B) I don’t …

Man of Steel (2013 film)
Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Clavill) is a guy with...angst...a great deal of angst. He wants to fly around the planet and save people, but thanks to his earth daddy, Jonathon Kent (Kevin Costner) …

Superman Vs. The Elite
Superman has been called “the big blue Boy Scout”. DC comics have always pitched his character who represents truth, justice and the American way. Superman has even been at odds with Marvel’s …

Superman: Earth One- Volume 2
Admittedly, while I liked J. Michael Straczynski’s “Superman: Earth One”, because it came the guy with the big red ‘S’ a different kind of tempo; a meaner, darker, and grittier …

I was never a fan of Superman. This guy is too strong, seriously the only thing that can hurt him is kyptonite. I guess thats why i like Doomsdayso much. He is the only one who is a real threat to superman. …

   Allow me, for the sake of justifying my complaints about this piece from the onset, to say that I am a subscriber to the theory that the DCAU crew is responsible for the absolute best incarnations …
posted a Quick Tip about Superman (Kal-El, Clark Kent). August 22, 2011
Often sited as being the most important and most iconic superhero in comics, mainly because he is considered to be the first, Superman is nonetheless one of the most classic cultural icons and he definitely …
reviewed Superman (Kal-El, Clark Kent). June 22, 2011
Superman! The original Superhero, so ubiquitous that people forget his origins. I don't mean his origin story, I mean his creation and first appearance in the first ever volume of Action Comics. Also, …

Superman: The Last Son of Krypton
Bruce Timm and Paul Dini prove that lightning can strike twice when they switched creative gears from the dark streets of Gotham City to the bright lights, big city look of Metropolis. This animated epic …

All-Star Superman
A complete and utter disappointment only given a few props due to the fact that it's a Superman film, and I'm arguably the world's biggest Superman fan.  The chief problem with ALL-STAR …

All-Star Superman
The comic book series was filled with Golden Age and Silver Age tributes to the adventures of the man of steel. There’re time-traveling Samson and Atlas (Supes arm-wrestles both of them), a Lois …

I have always expressed some dissatisfaction whenever Bruce Timm produces (in this case, co-produces with Alan Burnett) an animated film adapted from a comic book story. I had mixed feelings with “Batman: …

 In my youth, I was a voracious reader of superhero comic books, both the DC and Marvel lines. At the time, I had a preference for the Marvel group because the characters were more imaginative and …

Superman reboots and re-tellings. God, seems like DC just keeps on going on and on with this as they find reason after reason (Zero Hour, Crisis, Elseworlds etc.) to do this. After John Byrne’s …

As someone that read almost every Superman comic that was printed from approximately 1961 through 1968, I tend to be reluctant to embrace the modern artwork and storylines. A great deal of it is years …

Face facts, Super-fans: there is no way possible a film adaptation of the entire Superman/Doomsday saga could possibly have been attempted much less pleased everyone ... so we all may as well dispense …
reviewed Superman: Day of Doom. October 29, 2010
Back in 1992 (or was it 1993?), DC published the “Death of Superman” story arc in an attempt to generate more sales for the man of steel. It was a great gimmick that did generate huge sales …

Ok I can't let such an injustice go on much longer. I was surprised that this Movie didn't get much respect here. Let's all go back to the 90's folks. I'm an 80's baby. I grew …
