Hollywood can’t figure out Superman, and it’s their own damned fault.

GeekTyrant gets it where apparently Hollywood doesn’t, or at least GT gets a lot of it and I’m not going to quibble on the rest*:

Superman is a genuinely good person and a beacon of hope who uses his power to help people and keep the world safe and he also holds others with power accountable for their actions. How can they not see the relevance of that!?

TL9 Watch: Data Crystal technology.

Why this theme…

…wasn’t on autoplay throughout the story eludes me completely.

Tweet of the Day, This Gets Them Both Right edition.

Honestly, this is how I like to see both Superman AND Batman portrayed.

Tweet of the Day, HAHAHAHAHA edition.

I mean. It’s mean, but it’s funny.  And only Superman could manage to do it.

So I was catching up on my Honest Trailers.

And this one went into a really interesting place at the end there.

I still didn’t really bond with Man of Steel, though.  Dunno why. Although the lack of proper Superman music didn’t help matters any, of course.

Was… anybody looking for a TV show set on pre-Jor-El Krypton?

I mean, this isn’t necessarily bad:

Syfy today announced it has greenlit a pilot for Krypton, the Superman prequel series set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. Krypton will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

…but I don’t know if anybody was actually looking for something like this, ahead of time.  Certainly it never occurred to me until I saw the article. Which may be a selling point for originality, although I suppose that Gotham is demonstrating that you can get eyeballs for prequels like this. (more…)

This Luthor/Metallo Texts From Superheroes exchange explains it ALL.

This makes perfect sense to me. There’s a reason why Superman’s rogue gallery isn’t as psychopathic as Batman’s is: Lex Luthor probably has all of the really crazy ones quietly killed.  Because what happens if Superman ever decides that this ‘live like a normal human as much as possible’ thing isn’t really working for him? — Actually, you don’t need to answer that one; there are a bunch of comic story lines that explore that, usually with a lot of heat vision going off.  So, yeah, keep the Man of Steel busy cosplaying…

PS: You do have to wonder: why has nobody ever just shot the Joker in the head a few times?  I mean, I don’t condone violence, but it seems like a fairly obvious, if rather drastic, counter-Joker gambit. I suppose that Batman wouldn’t like it…

Had to have ‘the talk’ with my eldest just now.

I wasn’t expecting this quite so soon, but he just up and asked out of the blue: “Dad, who would win a fight: Batman, or Superman?”  So of course I had to explain to him Batman, son.  Because you know that Batman always has a plan, so he’s already ready to fight Superman.  And Superman’s too good a person to have a plan to fight his friend Batman. …He seems to have gotten it, so: whew.  Bullet, as they say, dodged.
