Superman: The Unauthorized Biography
Glen Weldon (Author)
A celebration of Superman's life and history - in time for his 75th birthday. How has the Big Blue Boy Scout stayed so popular for so long? How has he changed with the times, and what essential aspects of him have remained constant? This fascinating biography examines Superman as a cultural phenomenon through 75 years of action-packed adventures, from his early years as a social activist in circus tights to his growth into the internationally renowned demigod he is today.

The prototype design includes 25 points of articulation, an interchangeable heat-vision head, Fortress of Solitude crystal-design base (with lights and a fan to simulate a flowing cape when turned on), and will be made up of more than 80% die-cast material.
The first is Aardman: Superman Action Figure designed by Rich Webber and sculpted by Phil Ramirez.

He is based on the popular interstitial shorts shown during DC Nation on Cartoon Network. Aardman: Superman is approximately 6.5" tall and is priced at $24.95.
The second is a three-pack of Super Best Friends Forever Action Figures, designed by Lauren Faust and sculpted by Irene Matar.

Meet Super Best Friends Forever: Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl, measuring approximately 6.5", 5.45" and 6.8" tall, respectively. This three-pack is priced at $49.95.

Gillette is posing those questions in an unusually playful promotional campaign tied to the June 14 release of the new movie, "Man of Steel." It is part of a renewed effort by the men's grooming company to find new ways of connecting with customers.
Starting on Monday, Gillette will begin soliciting fan theories via HowDoesHeShave.com and rolling out related Web videos from five superhero enthusiasts: the director Kevin Smith; Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, hosts of the TV series "MythBusters"; the comedian Bill Nye ("the Science Guy"); and Mayim Bialik, real-life neuroscientist and "Big Bang Theory" actress.
Does he burn off that beard with his heat vision? Or maybe he just whisks his whiskers away with a puff of superhuman breath.
Fans will be asked to vote for their favorite theory.
"The idea is to bring the brand to life in new ways," said Elliott Wilke, Gillette's North American brand manager. "We are definitely the best a man can get, but the best Superman can get? We wanted to hear from the superfans."
Clark Kent is typically the cleanest of clean-shaven guys, but an early trailer for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" showed him with various degrees of facial hair, including a bushy lumberjack beard, and then re-emerging with a smooth face. One of Gillette's ad agencies, Concept One, spotted that snippet and alerted Gillette, which in turn got in touch with Warner Brothers, Mr. Wilke said.

Normally, the transition period with a new writer takes time for me. This happened with X-Men and Marvel's Conan after Chris Claremont and Roy Thomas left their first runs on those series. Yet Nelson's style fits well with what Mike Johnson did for Supergirl. That helps a bunch to enjoy the series more in my opinion.
One of Michael Alan Nelson's strengths in this issue was the relationship between Supergirl and Power Girl. I hope we see more of that as this story progresses. It's one of the things that made this book fun to read. The overall product isn't perfect, but it's a good beginning to what I hope is a long run for this writer.

The holistic success of the game's story is dependent on the audience being let in on the alternate dimension conceit from the very outset.
The comic's story would have fared much better (in my eyes, all other things considered), had it reached the point where Luthor discovers the alternate dimension before the game was released.
The second of those observations, which I have made before, is most germane to us. The comic's plot is clearly leading up to the discovery of the alternate dimension, a development that would have been reached far more convincingly in a surprise reveal at the appropriate time had we had no good reason to expect it. At this point, that is spoiled - certainly, it's conceivable that some people will have managed to avoid all of the promotion for the game, but that could not have been the marketing strategy, or, if it was, the people responsible should be sacked and fed to the llamas on Monty Python's farm.
