If you recognize a porn "star"s face - you are doing it wrong.

Yes, that was Misty Dawn. But uh, I recognize her from bible camp, not porn. Nope not porn at all...

The reason I don`t di­ck around with American comics in a nutshell.

Seriously, the only ones I pay attention to anymore are Deadpool (because he`s fu­cking insane, and always hilarious for it) and... Well, that`s about it. Occasionally I`ll read something else while I`m standing around near a comic rack, but I don`t actually pay attention to the stories anymore.

I can`t stand it when the same characters are used and abused over and over and over again, with minor variations between authors. It shows a severe lack of creativity as far as I`m concerned. Even if you can`t break a mold, at least make your own character.

After the original run by the original author, I consider any use of a character fan-fiction, and most fan-fiction isn`t worth reading.

I liked the Chronicle nod on that guy`s shirt. Seriously, go see it. It`s good.

What the video completely does not get is the subtext of superman is the concept of a god living amongst us. He was always going to defeat death .. especially as he was he was one of DC`s core franchises. He can no more die than Mickey Mouse can die.

It`s not to say you can`t write a comic with mortal superheroes, such as Watchmen, but if the publisher decides to milk it with serialisation and prequels, you`ll get all manner of plot device-based immortality. It happens in the movies, too. Ripley from Aliens is an example.

Good, I was right in completely ignoring that whole thing when it came out. I did buy an original art page from that story line. It has a low shot of Supergirl showing her panties and Luthor with lots of hair.

Comic book writers overuse death because it is a cheap way to achieve "significance". They see themselves as artists and, for the most part, lazy-minded hacks. Intellectually, they are like high school varsity players trying to play in the major leagues.

They forgot Superman`s other superpower: The ability to make people not give a flying f*ck about him.

I might have just missed it in the whole hibernation part but did they not also explain how being kryptonian he wouldn`t die from a mere beating and only did so because of his human moral values?

As ridiculous as this storyline sounds, Crisis on Infinite Earths was so much worse and was made some 6+ years earlier. Anyone that read that HAD to know Supes wasn`t dead or at the very least another superman from another dimension would take over on Earth-Prime. (If that was even where the story was taking place)

The only reason comic books set a precedent now is to break it. It`s sad really, but this is what happens when greed overtakes creative integrity; like a M. Knight Shambalam movie.

This was hilarious though, so I guess without the ridiculousness of the modern age comic books we wouldn`t have this to enjoy.

True story: the girl who plays Hank Henshaw`s wife (the one who was phasing in and out of existence or whatever) is played by a porn star named Misti Dawn.

He skipped over the whole radiation/combination of Eradicator, Cyborg, and the amnesia/coma Superman.
And he omitted Lex Luthor`s role in the story, as well as a bunch of other details, but I guess they had to or it would`ve been thirty minutes long.

He needs to do Spider-man.

I stopped reading the comic right around the same time the death of superman happened. I think. Anyway, at that time there was this weird cloning thing going on with spider-man and people were dying and popping back up all over the place. Beyond bizarre.
