Superheroes saved my life. No, Batman didn’t swoop in on a cable, nor did Deadpool kneecap a crook on my behalf, but a few special women have nonetheless given me a second shot at living on my own terms. Without their wisdom, filtered through page and screen to a wide-eyed black girl in the Midwest, I know my life…
The DC Collectors folks have been giving a lot of love to Batman: The Animated Series lately, with a series of action figures celebrating artist Bruce Timm’s iconic designs. But what of its brighter, bolder follow-up, Superman: The Animated Series? It’s time has come.
Weaker heroes in the Injustice 2 universe take a pill to make them capable of standing up to the likes of Superman, but there is no pill to make Superman less vulnerable to the magical mastery of the newly-revealed Doctor Fate.
Can you hate a movie but love its characters, or does a bad cinematic experience poison you against them? Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a massive disappointment for me, but damn if I don’t adore DC Films’ Superman and Armored Batman figures.
Making their debut at San Diego Comic-Con next week and going wide in 2017, Lego BrickHeadz Marvel and DC buildable figures are freakishly adorable.
This might be the best Superman fan-fiction I’ve ever seen. Hell, it’s better than most of the Superman stories DC is putting out nowadays.
Superman: American Alien is a reminder of how great the Man of Steel can be in the hands of people who care.
While the ultimate showdown between DC Comics’ iconic heroes doesn’t hit theaters until Friday, the battle begins now, in your mouth.
Superman, Aquaman and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man join the ranks of LEGO Dimensions’ cross-property cavalcade today, but the biggest addition is the Midway Arcade Level Pack, loaded with 20 playable LEGO-ized arcade classics.
Man, those are some very cool redesigns.
Over the decades, DC Comics has given the Man of Steel several different dates of birth. But the weirdest one is February 29, because it’s supposed to explain why a 78-year-old character only looks like he’s in his late twenties.
Clark Kent’s already done some silly things to try and get his Kryptonian mojo back, like trying to fly right into the sun. His most recent stab at getting fully powered makes that dumb stunt look like a genius move.
At least the version of Superman in this comedy short from Gasm Media, who needs to work on his victim identification skills.
2015 has been a hell of a year for the Man of Steel, bringing the biggest changes that the character’s seen in decades. And, while I mostly like how the current Superman reads after getting his powers reduced and secret identity outed, his monthly adventures feel like they’re losing steam to me.
You’re Clark Kent, a little boy who’s way different than your parents or anyone else in your hometown of Smallville. One day, you start floating high into the sky. Who the heck is going to show you how to fly?
Superman III was not a good movie. But it gave us an evil Man of Steel who took shots and generally gave no fucks whatsoever. The jerkhole Superman who shows up in a new comic this week feels almost exactly like the one in that terrible 1983 threequel.
And the worst part is: they still have to work together.
Look, up in the sky! A Superman who’s still married! A Lois Lane who didn’t expose Clark Kent’s secret identity to the world! Not a hoax! Not an imaginary story! This is all happening in the newly re-rebooted DC Universe, where there’s another weaker Clark Kent leaping tall buildings. What the heck is going on?
It’s long been unclear who is the worse reporter: Clark Kent, who lies to his readers daily by not mentioning that he’s the guy he is always writing about, or Lois Lane, whose ability to recognize Kent’s true identity is kryptonited by a pair of glasses.
