[Or: “Two Minutes Cape”]
Superman from 1938 to 2013 in a two minute animated video by Bruce Timm (of animated DC Comics works) and Zack Snyder (Man Of Steel director).
They skip over a lot – they have to – but they worked in a lot of cool stuff from over the years.
Must be something in the water. More political news about comics…
Ender’s Game author – and board member of anti-gay marriage group The National Organization For Marriage – Orson Scott Card is writing for the new digital comic Adventures Of Superman. Gay marriage activists are rather upset, and have started a petition to have Card fired.
Zeus Comics in Dallas TX will boycott the print edition. As far as I know, Zeus Comics isn’t demanding Card be fired, only saying they will not be carrying the comic. Their choice, and I’m fine with it. A private business is perfectly entitled to carry or not carry what they choose. Just like how DC Comics, also a private company, is free to hire anyone they choose.
Regardless of all this, I somehow doubt Superman comics will suddenly be shot through with overt anti-gay marriage themes. Even if Card wanted to include them, DC Comics would put a stop to that with a quickness. Can’t rile the customer base.
Card wrote an essay in 2004 outlining his opposition to gay marriage. I agree with him.
Dude, where’s my – ?
Cats and dogs, living together
Hey, baby, wanna see my Fortress Of Solitude?
Have a cock and a smile! Wot???
That’s the closest he’ll ever get.
A cute one to end with.
This one was from a link at the end of the page, but I just felt like throwing it in anyway. Now I want to start going to the gym.
I saw this on Coyote Blog and had to swipe it.

Sometimes I have odd reactions to things. For example, my immediate reaction to this comic book cover was, “comparative advantage fail.”
I am sure that Superman would be a super-productive gardener, but there are likely much better tasks to assign him for which his comparative advantage is much greater.
What also occurs to me is that Superman, being from the planet Krypton without proper papers, is an undocumented worker. Imagine if he decided to do every job he could. No matter what he was paid, it would still cost jobs that would otherwise go to, oh, everyone else on Earth. The planetary economy would be shattered within days.
Then again, we could all just lay about and do nothing while Superman takes care of everything. I doubt even the strongest critic of the welfare state would mind spending all his time by the pool with a 5000″ TV while Supes takes care of everything.
