September 22, 2014: J. Bone's Sun-Friendly Superman CostumePrint

Comic book artist J. Bone (who many may remember worked on the "Super Friends" comic book) has taken to Twitter in response to the idea that since Superman's powers are derived from Earth's sun, then perhans his costume should be designed to allow him to absorb sunlight more directly.

Unfortunately, Bizarro caught wind of the idea too...


September 22, 2014: Authors of "Holding Kryptonite" on Radio KAL Live!Print

Radio KAL Live! The Superman Homepage hosts a LIVE "Radio KAL" broadcast every week for Superman fans to come chat "on air" about the Man of Steel.

Our next show will be broadcast tonight Monday, September 22 at 7.30pm PDT in the U.S. (click here to check what time this is at your location).

Steve and Michael will be joined by Lauren Agostino and A.L. Newberg, the authors of the new book "Holding Kryptonite".

    Look!
    Down on the Ground!
    It's a Bag. It's some Trash.
    It's...It's...What IS that?...

    In 1997, a young law firm assistant - Lauren Agostino - literally stumbled on a secret cache from Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. These original documents, private correspondence, legal papers, and artwork expose the muted and maligned history of the relationships and dynamics of the early Superman family.

    The origin of Superman and the downfall of its creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster is a dramatic saga that underscores one of America's most popular cultural icons. For the first time, Agostino and writer A.L. Newberg reveal the extraordinary true story of the Man of Steel's rise from a creative concept (sold for the infamous $130) to the 1947 lawsuit that nearly denied Siegel and Shuster of any future with their Man of Tomorrow.

    Stripped away the lies, myths and cover-ups this is a treasure trove for Superman fans and historians alike.

We'll be chatting with Lauren and Andrew live about this amazing find, the contents of the book, and the astounding historical events it uncovers.

You can read an excerpt and order the book via our Online Store.

To listen in visit www.SupermanHomepage.com/live at the designated time.

During the live broadcast you can phone (714) 242-6186 or click on the Skype icon (which will be available at the above link) during the show to be a caller and chat with us live "on air".

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Tony Bedard seems back on track after last month's disappointingly average entry. Yet, I do wish he had delved more into Supergirl's past with Captain Comet and the Wanderers for those like myself who haven't yet read the rest of the Future's End books. This is why I didn't give the book the maximum rating.

Reviewed by: Michael J. Petty

    With an event as big as Future's End, I was kind of hoping to get more than we got from a Justice League book, both in terms of the League itself and the story. That being said, it's mentioned in the book that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Wildfire of the Legion of Superheroes, and Arsenal are all members of the League as well, though we don't get to see them work with this future team. Instead, we get Cyborg; the new leader of the League, The Flash, Vostok of Aquaman's Others, the new Stormguard, and Dawnstar from the Legion of Superheroes. Albeit an odd bunch, I quite enjoyed their little adventure here in this book. As someone who has only read the first two issues of Future's End at this point, I'm not sure if I missed a lot, I'm sure I did, but I still really enjoyed this story. On another note, I was glad to see the Justice League finally care about Martian Manhunter in the New 52... That was nice!

Reviewed by: Michael J. Petty

    I will say that I thought there was more, possibly better, action in this issue that in Part 1 and that was good, but there also seemed to be a little less story. I personally loved the use of Martian Manhunter; it felt a lot like the J'onn J'onzz that I know and love from the Justice League animated series, and it was cool to see that again. I'm still trying to figure out why there are Legion members on the future Justice League (5 years future, not 1,000 years), but I do really like the characters of Wildfire and Dawnstar, so I can't complain too much.

"Continuity" - Part 4

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Penciller: Ig Guara
Inker: JP Mayer
Colorist: Cat Staggs

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    The story really ups the ante here. Bryan Q. Miller delivers a fantastic issue and a Superman to be proud of. He proves he is smart, a tactician and a strong confident leader. The two scenes with Lois and Luthor are equally as strong with all of them putting aside their usual character tropes to not only mature as characters but to deliver some great story moments that stay with you, making the story a much stronger one.

September 21, 2014: Latest "Batman v Superman" Rumor - AquamanPrint

Man of Steel Even though Jason Mamoa still won't confirm whether he's been cast as Aquaman in any upcoming superhero movie, rumors still persist that Aquaman will appear in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and that he actually was already in "Man of Steel"... although in an unseen role.

This speculation of Aquman's involvement in "Man of Steel" has been a theory fans have been throwing up for months... so it's no surprise that SchmoesKnow.com has included it in their September 19th edition of a "Meet The Movie Press" video, which in turn has spread to other news media. We post it here for your debate... The Aquaman part starts at 30 minutes into the video...


September 21, 2014: Teacher to Run Half-Marathon as Superman for Sick KidsPrint

John Clarke Toronto teacher John Clarke will run in this year's Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon dressed in a Superman costume to raise money for sick kids in the Toronto Hospital.

    He's also out to break a Guinness world record for running the fastest half-marathon while dressed as a superhero.

    Clarke isn't running in tights because he wants to fight crime or has an unhealthy appreciation for superheroes.

    Clarke, who is now 36, spent three months undergoing treatment at Sick Kids as a child. He wants to run and raise money as a way to show his appreciation for the staff who once treated him and support the patients who are there now.

    "It was such a hard time for my family," Clarke told CBC News. "To try and boost my spirits, they always called me their little superman. I want to pay it forward to all the kids who are still at Sick Kids. To show that sick kids are all around us."
