Unofficial Superman Game Skewers Man of Steel’s Overblown Destruction

Kyle Baker’s no idiot. The iconic comics and animation artist knows that he can’t call the characters in Mass Murderer of Steel Superman and General Zod.

This Is How I Think We Can Make A Superman Game Work. How About You?

I didn’t like Man of Steel as much as some people, but I have to admit that it was good seeing a Superman streak across the big screen again.

Man of Steel: Worth It Just For The Super-Powered Combat

There's really only one reason to see the new Superman movie: to watch people with superhuman powers pounding the crap out of each other, flying into each other and burninating each other with heat vision.

Getting Caught Up In WoW Almost Cost Man of Steel Star His Role

Despite the jokes about telling our parents that NO we can't pause the friggin' game to take out the trash, the truth is, the inability to pause a live game is a real problem. Real enough that even Man of Steel's star, Henry Cavill, has grappled with it. Actually, he almost didn't get the role of Superman because of… » 5/02/13 8:30pm 5/02/13 8:30pm
