Happy 21st Birthday, Bruce Wayne!
Coincidentally, it's mine as well.
It's gonna be hard to shitpose edginess for this issue.
Storytime'd Robin War Finale here (>>78945353) if anyone's interested
Don't need to resize any images this issue as well.
Just have to navigate capchas.
ow the edge
>Superman drinking alcohol and partying with skimpy women
It's official, DC has turned Superman into a Dudebro. They have literally raped the character worse than Lucas did to Star Wars...
are you triggered?
I'd say Clark is not a virgin.
Oh great I can see the dumb "Superman is a rapist!!" articles at the MarySue especially since he doesn’t get drunk, great, the character did not need this.
Also fucking Cheetah, oh wow this is so going to be akward when he has to fight her "Oh hey Diana I fucked your arch nemesis"
Thanks for reading folks. I'm enjoying this series thus far.
skipped ads in my last storytime
See ya next month for "Owl".
And one last page, for good measure...
Why is /tv/ up at 5 in the morning
why am I up at 5 in the morning
>thinking an article at the MarySue or the opinions of people who honestly believe drunk sex is automatically non-consensual will affect anyone's actual view of the character of Superman
It might affect YOUR life because you willingly expose yourself to forums like this where people talk about that kind of shit. The option to leave and spend your life doing something less retarded is ALWAYS open to you, anon. All you have to do is have some willpower and fight the addiction.
remember when Superman use to be a fun inspiring character instead of a edgy dudebro who destroyed school walls angerly, melt people's arms off, gets drunk and bang random chicks he just met, and get into drunken fights?
I wish Superman was Superman again.
>human form cheetah
So fucking normie.
I bet she didn't even claw him in an animalistic sex-rage.
/tv/ likes max landis though because he said how Hollywood is evil because they don't care about original ideas (after he wrote a script for Frankenstein) which they then interpreted as "FUCK CAPESHIT" (despite the fact that Max loves capeshit). bascially /tv/ is dumb
I dunno, I actually like the idea of Clark acting like a normal fucking person when he's young. Superman's better written when he's more relaxed and casual, not a stiff scolding authority figure.
But then, the Superman story I've been waiting my whole life to see someone tell but no one ever has is seeing him go to actual fuckin' college and get a real journalism degree because you can't just walk into a major city paper with no resume or experience and become a news writer, that's retarded, and because personally I believe Clark wouldn't go "I need a job where I hear about news quickly" or "I want to be near Lois" like he is in most continuities, he'd actually CARE about investigative journalism as another avenue to fight crime and corruption.
Birthright almost did it, it starts with him fresh out of college and doing freelance reporting in foreign countries to build up his resume...but I want to see the stories where he makes the decision to pursue that, or see him on-campus, going to classes and living that life, as opposed to some homeless drifter or "living in the Fortress learning Krypton stuff from holo-Jor-El for like a whole decade" bullshit like in the movies.
Yeah, same. As someone that hates Max Landis as a person, literally every movie he's contributed to and even his Superman youtube videos, I gotta say I've been enjoying the series so far.
>Cheetah and Zoom
Yeah that was good, too bad Hunter is gone and he wouldn't make a good enemy for Barry.
I'm actually liking it a lot more than I expected. Especially after all the fucking hate Max Landis gets on here. He writes a pretty good young Supes. Gonna find the other issues in the archive and read those too, thanks for the storytime!
It's sort of difficult in that there are a lot of fans that just want him to be Superman 24/7 and don't really care about him as Clark or his "human" side that much. So it tends to get downplayed a lot in stories.
As someone that likes Clark more than Superman, or at least finds him more interesting, I like these kind of stories like we got here.
>last issue Clark burned a dude's arms off
>Clark promises he would never do anything like that again
>launches a guy thousands of feet in the air across the water
>doesn't even check on him to see if the guy can swim
>doesn't check on the guy to make sure he didn't die
So Clark just MURDERED a guy an doesn't give a shit? Even though he made a big deal in the last issue in not killing people?
the guy is deathstroke so he's obviously still alive.
Either way this issue was kind of shit and while I was on the fence with issues 1 and 2 this was the point where it went from being a little rough but interesting to just stupid and shit.
Clark doesn't know who Deathstroke is and his powers. As far as he knows he just killed a guy with no empathy (when he could of found another way)
I see Max Landis is a big fan of Zimmerman.
A different execution than "It was just this one time because of a freak accident and served to give him perspective about a world so completely alien to his own usual small town experience"? Because that's a pretty good execution.
Flicking someone into the ocean with one finger is as non-lethal an attack as you can possibly fucking do, dude. I'm sorry that the cartoonish image of Deathstroke flying a hundred feet in the air makes your pucker clinch up.
The problem here is you're reacting the way a crazy person would. I didn't like Man of Steel either but you're turning yourself into a cartoon.
>Superman is now a fratboy who gets drunk and bangs random women and gets into drunk fights
C-Can Superman be in the public domain already? Let anyone (especially better artists) write Superman instead of letting DC continue to ruin him more and more and only giving him to terrible writers like Max Landis?
>Superman is now a fratboy who gets drunk and bangs random women and gets into drunk fights
No he isn't, do you take Red Son as canon? Do you take Overman as canon? Do you take Speeding Bullets as canon? How about Secret Identity. Don't be an idiot anon, this isn't even a retool of his New 52 Origin seeing as how he has parents here and how it seems like this is the first time he meets Lana
I liked it. really humanised supes by allowing him to have flaws and live a little.
clark continually tried to tell everyone he wasn't bruce wayne and only continued the charade after cheetah told him the truth.
Frankly I think most people would have done the same thing in that situation. and clark actually built an emotional connection with the one girl he did something with so its not like this story is "frat boy supes bangs drunk slooots"
Because having characters who are nice and good is unrealistic. EVERYONE needs to be an unlikable sexist asshole douchbag like Max Landis. It is also why Geoff Johns's Nu52 Billy Batson is the best Captain Marvel and better than the queer old Billy (and better than that Convergence issue)
"Being a nice guy is for fags, horrible jerks is where it's at" is the new cool motto for writing characters
Not a big fan of this issue. It was mostly alright. Had some moments I enjoyed, others I wish hadnt happened and overall ti was just average I'd say. I liked the other two much more.
Also that last page just seemed like a bad riff on Morrison
Personally I think it felt a bit overindulgent. If the party stuff had stopped here>>78947065 ith Clark then deciding to fuck off because these people are so shallow.
Really I think it just makes Bruce look better than Clark because while Bruce is training his ass off Clark is enjoying the life he rejected. I mean maybe it'll get better in the remaining issues, this is still a young Superman after all.
This one is shit because it ignores everything that happened in the previous issue. He almost killed people with his powers ad vows to never abuse them to maim people again. Now he willingly gets drunk and almost kills a guy (granted said guy had a healing factor but he doesn't know that). It wouldn't be so bad if he felt horrible the next day or learned that he should be careful getting intoxicated since it could lead to him doing dumb dangerous acts with his powers. But instead he feels nothing and regrets nothing. He's just an asshole. He doesn't even feel like the same Clark from previous issues.
It's shitty writing
>I promise to not abuse my powers and hurt peopl-
>oh hey! Booze! Women! Let's get shitfaced!
>oh hey, eye man, you wanna fight? enjoy being launched fifty yards! Better hope you survive the impact and not drown or get eaten by sharks
>me need more booze and boobs
OUR HERO, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
This whole series is just DC's answer to Trouble, isn't it?
I can appreciate that this comic is all a joke about how Bruce and Clark are drawn in a similar fashion, but you'd think Deathstroke would be able to tell the difference between his targets.
>go to be with stunning red head
>wake up with this
that's because Clark isn't Clark, it's Max Landis self-inserting into Clark ad giving his opinions on how he feels about people him and how he sees himself (i.e. that he is the greatest human and that everyone are just phony suck ups). You're suppose to hate the bootlickers and see Max Kent as the totally awesome guy surrounded by inferior idiots (even though it just makes him come off as more of a egotistical douche)
or maybe women just have better taste.
I mean, Marvel has fun books like Ms Marvel and Amazing Spider-Man while DC has Max "MARY SUES" Landis's American Alien and Franke "WHORES" Miler's DKIII. Not much of a competition really.
Boring as fuck
Is that even good? I can't help but think the cast is too bloated to be actually intresting
>unbeatable squirrel girl
Not very funny and also pretty much killed the heart of squirrel girl as a character
Now that's fake diversity
Oh you mean the first female asian hero in comics?
Robinson has been lagging in quality lately.
If I were to write that story I'd play it up as Clark realizing his limitations. Like, he's got telescopic x-ray vision and super hearing; he can know what's going on in other countries, but even with all his speed and strength he realizes can't be in two places at once. So he has to make choices and prioritize. There are social and political issues a really strong guy can't solve no matter how much muscle he throws at it. But his empathy and compassion mean that he wants those people he can't be for in the moment to get help and have their stories told too.
If this is in a continuity where Jonathan dies, I'd probably have it be because he has his heart attack while Clark is pulling people out of a burning dorm his first year in college or something.
So you'd have Clark not writing about Superman (unless a particular "case" really touched him.). Lois would have the Superman beat, she's writing about how he saved the city from a giant robot while Clark helps write the story of the kid that injured in a car accident at the same time because he couldn't be there for him.
So you have Clark being humanized with him processing his grief over not being able to do more and recognizing his limitations.
Something being light hearted doesn't make it comedy. And I said the series. This issue is definiely meant to be more lighthearted. But throwing logic out the window only works in actual comedies
>wahhhhhhhh Clark acts like a normal young person!
Leave it off, people, that's not something to get mad about.
The problems with this comic are a kinda abrupt hyper-coincidental start and a bit of stilted dialogue around the middle. Clark behaving like a normal young guy is not a problem at all. The best part about Superman is the man, the human element.
Everyone wants something different out of Superman, it's impossible to agree on what should be left in or out of his characterization. That, combined with the usual Max Landis shitposting, is what's causing the overflow of autism in this thread.
>ITT: Not muh Superman
This is why Superman can never be popular again, you can't find two fucking people who could come to an agreement as to what is Superman done right. Any type of reinterpretation is automatically received with hate.
He's drunk and under the influence of the poison Deathstroke gave him, he doesn't fucking understand what's going on and then blacks out so he doesn't even remember what happened later. You fucking idiot.
>Do you really think that the majority of people that buy comic books go partying on yachts?
Except Clark isn't the kind of kid who reads comics.
You're talking about Superboy Prime
money is power. power is not power?
He has powers at this point right? very strange to lament money could have helped her, but his strengths were somehow not capable of generating money?
What was he supposed to do, go rob a bank? Pilfer through some rich dude's apartment in Metropolis?
There's not much he can do to raise money as a kid that doesn't involve criminal activity and doesn't out him as a superhuman.
I mean, personally, I'd be 100% okay with robbing some rich guy to pay for someone's extremely important health issues (though, that said, it's doubtful they'd keep any real cash around), but would Clark Kent be?
Pffft, you think young people don't party? Are you for real?
Nigga, young people in situations far, far poorer than yours manage to get their party on. Something tells me your neckbeard lifestyle is coloring your perception of how young people act.
No, not everyone is a goddamn millionaire, and Clark isn't either. But then again, most guys wouldn't pass up a millionaire party full of beautiful rich chicks either.
work like a million jobs? do mining? Crush rocks, plant fields, etc. admittedly, the "i was afraid to leave my hometown" cuts out a bit.
Fishing would be very lucrative. dude could go swimming and bring in Tuna.
2-10k for 1 fish.
Lumber would be as well.
I'm pretty sure it was the neurotoxin that made him 'drunk'. I'm pretty sure he didn't expect that to happen. And no matter what we say or how good our intentions are while sober drunk us is a different beast.
Seriously I'm not getting the problem here. He's still a young adult who's still trying to figure out who he is. I mean hell supes is always one of the more light-hearted superheros. Nothing he did in this book was really wrong. Why's everyone getting their panities in a bunch over this?
>you will never have drunken sex with crazy cat girls
Feels really fucking awful man.
>, DC has turned Superman into a Dudebro.
To be honest Superman is always a dudebro when he hangs with Batman and they are not in the league. They are the world finest and they know it.
>You know Vic Zsasz and his wife
>On safari once, I saw a cheetah
I thought the issue was fun. Superman didn't act edgy in this at all, he was just blowing off some steam and enjoying his vacation. What was he supposed to do meditate like a monk?
Him sleeping with Cheetah was weird, but the best part was definitely poisoned drunk Superman vs Deathstroke. All in all so far I give the mini series as a whole a 7.5/10 Better than I expected, fun but nothing extraordinary so far.
This so much.
I used to laugh at cartoons that showed people landing safely. I mean it is obvious the good guys don't kill bad guys. We all know Deathstroke didn't die from a comedic act, oh plus you know he shows up later in the future.
>Franke "WHORES" Miler
I'm laughing more than I should be
>"Batman's rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. To be sure, this is a lighter incarnation, but it's certainly no less valid and true to the character's roots than the tortured avenger crying out for mommy and daddy."
Same rule applies. DC characters are flexible due to history and the nature of the multiverses.
>drunken one night stand with future villain
I mean if this story isn't canon, why not have superman discover several years down the line that this supervillainess also got pregnant from that one night stand?
And then superman must fight his own child, supercheetah.
He didn't knlw know that. As far as we're concerned, Max Landis just had Clatk think he murdered a guy and showed no empathy for the situation. Max Landis claims that Superman is suppose to be one of the most pure heroes ever. And yet he constantly writes him as the most edgy dudebro ever.
The REAL Clark would of cared that he knocked a guy across the ocean with his full strength. The real Clark wouldn't of gotten drunk and sleep with random women like their just objects. The real Clark wouldn't of melted a guy's arms off. The real Clark would of found another way.
This is isnt Clark or Superman. This is Max Landis raping him and making him into a egotistical sociopath fratboy reflection of himself.
How is it fine? It shows that Clark is a monster willing to kill people if they annoy him and it's play for "le laughs". What's next? Is he going to break Mr Freeze's spine because he was high on pot and them giggle like a school girl as he walks away?
>The real Clark wouldn't of gotten drunk and sleep with random women like their just objects
Having consensual sex with an attractive member of the opposite sex is treating them like objects? I'm pretty sure "the real Clark" has had sex too.
>The real Clark wouldn't of melted a guy's arms off.
Are people still mad about that? I thought the point of that was showing he was young and had no control of his power. It's not like he did it on purpose.
I don't understand why you're so upset about all of this? It's an elseworld story. Not every depiction of Superman has to be the same.
the general consensus of Landis on /tv/ is he is a true hack fraud ripoff artist, and unoriginal bastard.
chronicle which was his only good movie, was a near copy of Akira. american ultra was SHIT, and victor frankenstein was even worse.
>Not every depiction of Superman has to be the same.
Or Fun apparently.
At this point, DC cares more about making Superman 'realistic' and 'gritty' instead of inspirational or nice. I can't wait til Ninja Theory gets to make a Superman story.
>an edgy faggot who thinks hes 2cool4school
>a kid who got into a scrap and ended up even crying
Oh man you sure showed us with your young man in a police line-up picture
>Or Fun apparently.
This issue was pretty fun. And even if it wasn't not every depiction of Superman has to be.
It's an elseworld it's meant to show another interpretation of Superman. If you don't like this one there are quite literally thousands of others you could be reading.
>Superman had drunk sex with Cheetah
Where am I right now?
>Clark has an eppiphany about being superman from drinking, partying, sex withg a bunch of people he barely met.
I know people shit on landis for being a spoiled white kid, but god damn how do you think this is passable writing.
FUCK YOU FAGGOT PIECE OF SHIT! Max Landis is literally the greatest writer of all time! He's fixing Superman by making him Realistic, Edgy,Horny, and Relatable! This isn't that same Queer Superman that gay fags like you and Mark Waid like. Good natured and inspirational heroes are for fags. Superman needs to be a realistic unlikable asshole who hurts people, drinks alcohol, and bangs women. How can anyone take a man in red tights seriously if he isn't like that?
Well thats what he's meant to be. We're meant be able to see parts of ourself in him and strive to be as great as he is
Nothing he's done has been unlikeable
>who hurts people
On accident mostly
Like most average teenagers. This isn't something thats shamed or looked down upon in modern society unless you live in a heavily religious household, its just part of growing up
And like all people he has sexual urges and is attracted to others, this is normal person behaviour.
Why do people think pre-Flashpoint Billy Batson is Superman? Or that Post-E33 Superboy Prime is Superman?
REALLY rich people, not "upper middle class", as ollie or bruce are old money that doesnt care about jewish trends, much less what is popular among blacks, they pretend to be european.
Hey, Max Landis. Are you still butthurt that Star Wars TFA and Thor the Dark World have higher scores on RT than American Ultra?
Tell me, what other characters do you plan on ruining by turning them into horny edgy Dudebros? Captain Marvel? Wonder Woman? Dr Fate? Metal Men?
Is Max Landis the next Bendis?
Yes he is or at least that's what he tries to be.
He isn't a superhero, or an idol yet. He's just a kid trying to make his way in the world while dealing with the fact he has super powers and is an alien.
So he does what average teenagers do, he drinks, he goes to parties, he talks to girls, he plays Football. He's not a NEET, he's not a tortured soul, he's not crazy religious and most of all he's not an outcast.
I'll try writing a Superboy Prime story for you guys next week, so that it correctly reflects a bunch of nerds complaining that they aren't what they think is considered normal to most of the western world.
>So he does what average teenagers do, he drinks, he goes to parties, he talks to girls, he plays Football. He's not a NEET, he's not a tortured soul, he's not crazy religious and most of all he's not an outcast.
Exactly. Why do people make such a big deal about him drinking? He's a sociable person in a social situation with drinking, what do you think he's gonna do?
Pretty sure %99 percent of them wouldn't have him melt a guy's arms off, get drunk, swear, and bang random chicks like a fratboy.
Hell, most people (like Marvel writes) would write a fun inspirational Superman that isn't as awful as this.
According to /co/ the only true Superman origin story is the one from the radio show where he just steps out of his rocket as a fully grown man, already wearing his Superman costume and then simply decides to be a Superhero/journalist five minutes after landing on Earth.
>He doesn't crack open a six pack like some alcoholic
You're the reason DC had to go and edit a beer bottle from a fucking comic cover so it'd be Clark drinking root beer with Pa instead of a Bud Light.
>I-I-I-I-I-It's okay if Clark is a impure piece of shit that drinks, bangs women, and using his powers to melt arms and launch people!
>H-H-H-He'll become the real pure Superman eventually r-r-right?
>I-I-I-I-I-It's okay Clark destroyed Metropolis and murdered Zod in cold blood!
>H-H-H-He'll become the real pure Superman eventually r-r-right?
DC has shown that they have hatred for any inspirational fun Superman
In most interpretations of Superman he can't even get drunk so what's the problem with him drinking alcohol.
If you want inspirational, fun Superman read the main title or Action Comics and stop shitting up the thread with "not muh Superman" garbage.
You should read more comics
Just because it is an elseworlds story doesn't make it any less of a shitty tryhard story.
Not to mention it's another story by DC that is literally raping Superman's image by them trying to make him "Cool" and "Hip" by making him a Fratboy.
At this point, I just wish Disney would buy DC from WB already and give them to Marvel so they can Fix him already.
This anyone that's actually read the book would know that not only is it 10/10 maximum comfy, but is also a truer depiction of Superman than anything since All-Star Superman while maintaining his humanity. This is literally one of the best Superman stories of the past decade and the fact that its written by a relative newcomer is nothing short of awe-inspiring!!!
Truley, we should all aspire to be half the writer, nay half the MAN, that Maximum Landis is.
Have you read the book and know that Superman isn't suppose be edgy or a fratboy? Or are you just one of Max Landis's many rabbid fanboys who know nothing how Superman should be and only know him from Max's inaccurate youtube videos?
Shouldn't you be busy sending Death Threats to better writers like Mark Waid and Noelle Stevenson for insulting your husbando?
It's a good book, but I wouldn't go that far. It's a humanization of Superman based on modern standards. It's not going to have the same weight as All-Star (a timeless retelling of everything that makes Superman, Superman), ever.
>Just look at all this Fun!
>All aboard the Fun train
>Lucas did to Star Wars
Lucas CREATED Star Wars you fucking cretin.
Also entire point of this issue is him learning to be someone he isn't, as in learning to have secret identity? Geddit?
I'm glad he was willing to Kill someone and have drunk sex with loose women to figure that out
because when EVERYONE thinks of Superman they think of alcohol, sex, and violence...
He saw them having power to make a difference, but doing nothing.
Its the point of the "you eate gold when you could be helping".
He can make a difference, he has the power and the responsabillity. That's os the realization.
Now I need to read this.Which run it was? Who is the writter?
Why there is so much SJW on this thread? I'm starting to sympathize with Landis just because he seems to make tumblr and feminits butthurt.
>can expertly fly the millennium falcon despite being stuck on a rock her entire life
>out forces Kylo Ren despite having no training
>out lightsabers Kylo Ren despite it being the first time she ever touched one
Come on my man.
agreed, DCFan! there's nothing wrong with Superman melting arms off, swearing, drinking, and banging hot women! we are doing what bo one has ever done with Superman and making him serious and gritty (and original idea never thought before).
also, be sure to check out our new Superman comic in which you see Superman like nevar before! Superman is now raised by the rich kents. he no longer wears the boring tights no one loves and instead wears a hoodie (y'know, just like your hippty hop CDs!) and a backwards cap! he now has new original superpowers in the form of telekinesis and telepathy! ha can now move objects and read minds! watch him get into hilarious and tragic situations like blowing up a burglar's head and flirting with hot babes at the clubs! also, he has pouches!
This summer, Max Landis and Greg Pak present "S Gon Giv it To Ya"
...please buy our comics and not Marvel's...
>Actually taking the time to write this out
Superman fans are spergy af
>Superman melting arms off
He did it by accident. And was horrified that he did it.
>swearing, drinking, and banging hot women
Nothing wrong with any of these.
I like how you paint this comic's Clark as an Xtreme! killer when he's been acting kind and compassionate.
Clark wanting to be a vet is super cute. Reminds me of that time he was a vegetarian in... Birthright I think it was? I really like those depictions of Clark caring about every living thing
>And was horrified that he did it.
Yeah, he was so horrified that he decide to take his powers seriously-no wait. He got drunk, had drunk sex with a woman he just met(sex that could of impregnated her or killed her) and hit a guy across the ocean and didnt care if he drowned.
>she beat Kylo Ren
Not that impressive of a feat. Kylo couldn't break a normie with the force so another force sensitive is probably way out of his leagu and she only won that lightsaber battle after was severely wounded.
Read acting comics by pak if you wish to read about superman being heroic, for fuck sakes he helped a bunch o kids, he said everyone on his block was superman, carried a paraplegic girl
>Read acting comics by pak
Not him but I picked it up at the beginning of the Truth arc and dropped it after 46 (I was used to reading street level Superman at that point so when they introduced Wrath it was kind of juxtaposing). Worth picking up where I left off?
So /co/ between Huck and American alien, which comic does a better job at being a superman comic.
This is the most attention Superman has gotten from /co/ since Man of Steel. It's pretty hilarious. The only time /co/ cares about Supes is when they're autistically hung up on his characterization.
>tfw I want to read this but missed the last two storytimes
>tfw I'm at work and can't even download cbrs
>tfw I don't even like reading comics that aren't storytimed anymore because they're not as comfy
They also refuse to accept that comic book movies are also out of continuity.
I fucking hate when somebody gets pissed at an adaptation of a serialized comic book because it was inaccurate.
Shit like this makes me hate Superman fans, and I fucking love that character. So fucking stiff and coddled and desperate that your character HAS to be the same.
You've got decades of CANON stories you can bury yourself in. Please, please, please go the fuck away and read those.
Note that a lot of bitches are going to the theater on Valentine's Day to watch a romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynolds that they managed to overlook.
>Shit like this makes me hate Superman fans
>Hating people who barely exist because DC/WB has been poorly handling the character since before alot of /co/ was born.
You're an idiot.
>DC has been poorly handling the character
>DC isn't making the character the way I want it so they're mishandling it
Way to completely lean into the stereotype and make yourself look like an even bigger asshole.
Bless your little tomboy heart, Suruga.
I don't see why everyone is getting so upset about some elseworlds and have the stupidity to even claim it hurts his character.
Protip:Superman and Batman have been evil murderers in other elseworlds. Pretty sure that's far worse than average-joe visiting a wild party.
Is it really surprising to you? Newfags from reddit and tumblr come here for free comics, shit up story time threads, then leave without assimilating to the board. Repeat the cycle every week.
I'm glad Superman knows the feel of spending a night on vacation with a sun burned qt in a tropical place. It's a bittersweet feel. I hope you anons get to feel it too.
You are a moron, the jedi, the force, the adventures they have and the worlds they visit, all of it was his idea, sure along the well a lot of skilled people contributed and polished his vision, but ultimatley it wouldn't exist without him, and the fact he made 3 movies which weren't all that great doesn't change that, even his bad movies are stuffed full of cool ideas
Well he could just have snapped and melted into the night after his parents got killed. He lives like a dog for several years until he decides to become a ninja then a crimefighter.
Or if his parents died earlier he would have told Alfred.
Victor Zsasz is this guy
You're thinking of Victor Sage
I dunno, I like what you've got but I prefer the idea that Clark is still on the farm, maybe post-high school graduation but still trying to decide what to do with his life, when Pa gets the heart attack because to me, the whole point of Pa dying is supposed to be "I was there and I have all these powers and there are STILL some things I can't save people from".
>I hope you anons get to feel it too.
Something tells me most of the posters (or it's one samefag shitposting, hard to tell) in this thread not only never will, they actively avoid it because they associate social activities with the guy who dunked their head in the toilet in 8th grade.
>"I was there and I have all these powers and there are STILL some things I can't save people from".
Clark should know that already if he has super senses. I prefer it when Pa's still alive when Clark is Superman. That means Clark doesn't need to have Pa tell him to use his powers for good in his dying moments because Clark figured it out by himself.
>That means Clark doesn't need to have Pa tell him to use his powers for good in his dying moments because Clark figured it out by himself.
I can't remember ever seeing a Pa Kent death scene with a mawkish last words speech like that. He usually just clutches his chest and falls over, man.
Some anon has the various versions saved in one image.
He only HNNNGGGS and falls over in the Reeve movie, All Star and perhaps Post-Crisis. Pre-Crisis and New 52 have the deathbed scene.
Oh alright. There was some newer art in that montage anon did and I thought it was the latest version.
But Clark still has Super senses. Tragedy is tragedy but he shouldn't need to experience one to make him become Superman. He becomes Superman because he's a good guy.
It is the New 52 one. Pa is dying of injuries from the car crash, not a heart attack.
You might want to think about adding a comma after "stop", otherwise it sounds like a completely different command.
OH MY FREAKING SIDES LEFT THIS DIMESIONAL PLANE!!!
Also is it me or does it look like Max Landis wrote this book?
Yeah see, that's weak. You don't need Pa to have last words. The lesson should never be "promise me you'll be a hero", it should be one for the READER that "there are some problems punching and laser eyes can't solve, and that's Clark's real weakness"
I hate the whole
>Promise me you'll be a hero
guilt trip thing. Clark shouldn't need to be told by this point, he should just know and choose to be a good person
Its why I like the Ma Kent line from the BvS trailer, she's making it clear its his choice
Not disagreeing, just saying it was that way in comics until >>78964819 happened.
Yeah, but silver age comics aren't really that relevant anymore, that continuity ended 30 years ago.
Most people today grew up knowing only either the Donner movie or Post-Crisis and a lot of comics fans prefer to think of All-Star as the definitive version of the Pa death scene.
>You don't need Pa to have last words.
But he's supposed to. Byrne breaking tradition once by having Pa survive until he was an adult doesn't mean it's right.
Pa is supposed to inspire Clark to be a hero with his last words. That's that.
>obviously a golden age page
Not to mention he gets three different death scenes during the Silver Age (aka the only age when Superman was good) and they all have last words
According to the stats /co/'s average (male) age is somewhere around 40-50, so he's presumably around that age. The average female age is much lower for some reason. I assume it's due to the intersection with /cgl/.
I'm so old I take fiber to poop right and the comics you think should still stand as canon were written before I was god damned born.
Do you have any examples from AFTER the pyramids were built?
Honestly I'd be more upset that it was a Bud Light instead of something better. Get some taste, DC. The midwest has a ton of better beers to choose from.
I loved the first issue.
I loved this issue.
And to be honest I would have been okay with the second issue if Clark had only broken a few bones, rather than permanently maiming the guy.
This mini overall is pretty fucking great so far.
