Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman #46Print

Superman #46

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman #46

Scheduled to arrive in stores: November 25, 2015

Cover date: January 2016

"Knocked Out"

Writer: Gene Luen Yang
Penciller: Howard Porter
Inker: Howard Porter
Cover: John Romita, Jr.
Variant Cover: Ryan Sook & Spike Brandt

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Remember Gene Luen Yang's original premise? Going back to Superman's roots, looking into his rich history? It faded into the background as this arc continued but suddenly we have many elements of Super history brought forward. Suddenly a classic storyline comes into play. I hadn't made the connection with Apolaki being made of sand until now but, years before in the early 70s DC de-powered Superman, not to the scale that has butchered him now but his days of juggling planets were gone.

    In the Denny O'Neill era story the newly de-powered Superman had to fight a Sand Superman duplicate that used his own powers against him. Walter Simonson retooled and retold the story in the 1990s, having Superman use his wits to defeat the Sand Superman. Instead of a battle of wits Yang uses Clark's memories of the Kents, which Shahrazad had stirred earlier, to best his opponent. However in a twist, instead of the creature being defeated, Jimmy Olsen is killed.

DEAD AGAIN continues!

Mike and Jeff close out cover date December 1994 with parts seven and eight of Dead Again. First up is Adventures of Superman #518 where Superman travels to Apokolips and there is a lot of fighting. Then in Action Comics #705 an at the end of his rope Man of Steel believes he has found the man or rather imp from the fifth dimension responsible for the supposedly real but probably fake dead body that has been causing Superman so much grief. Following this the boys look at both Steel #10 and Metropolis: SCU #2, which they have some serious mixed feelings on. After discussing what else was going on in the DCU that month Mike and Jeff dive into two more episodes of the second season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman; Church of Metropolis, which introduces Intergang to the series and Operation: Blackout, which has a friend of Lois pop back up with hilarity supposedly ensuing.

Next Time: Dead Again continues in Superman: The Man of Steel #40 and Superman #96. The boys will also briefly discuss Superboy #11 and Guardians of Metropolis #3.

November 27, 2015: Retro Review - "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"Print

Lois & Clark Superman Homepage reviewer Rob Ó Conchúir continues reviewing episodes from "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" for those nostalgic for the 1990s.

Check out his review of the Season 4 episode titled "Lord of the Flys" in which Clark leaves to find the palacial mothership that will take him to lead New Krypton.

November 26, 2015: "Supergirl" Episode Review - S01E04 "How Does She Do It?"Print

Supergirl Superman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the new "Supergirl" TV series, airing on CBS.

Check out his review of the 4th episode in which Kara's two identities are stretched thin when Supergirl must protect National City from a series of bombings and Kara is tasked with babysitting Cat's son, Carter. Also, James is conflicted when his ex-girlfriend Lucy Lane seeks to rekindle their relationship.

    Supergirl needs a villain. The other pieces are in place, and being played quite well. Supergirl is a quintessential heroine, with her supporting cast firmly astride of her. Cat Grant has received the best development thus far, with two episodes that highlight her heart actually beats, with Wynn doing his comic relief best thus far. Jimmy Olsen is doing the "hunk of burning love" pose and that's fine for now. Alex, Hank, come in as needed. The opening of the episode was the mark that highlights the need for a competent nemesis for the Maid of Might. Supergirl soars through the skies of National City. She's bright, happy, endearing... until her flight is disturbed by a drone spying on her. How much better if there was a figure to actually challenge her? The set-up of events, that Maxwell Lord concocts in order to gauge her abilities isn't a poor one, but it still lacks the force needed for where Supergirl is, surprisingly, after only five episodes.

November 26, 2015: Jurgens and Lee Talk "Superman: Lois and Clark"Print

Superman: Lois and Clark #2 With issue #2 of the "Superman: Lois and Clark" comic book series out this week, DC Comics caught up with writer Dan Jurgens and artist Lee Weeks to get a little further insight into the story. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    What kind of threats or enemies can we expect to show up?

    Dan: Superman has two missions here.

    The first is to handle the effects of natural disasters, mitigating them when possible, while also dealing with large-scale accidents like bridge collapses and airliner crashes.

    But he's also using the knowledge he has of villains on his world to try to prevent them from emerging here. There are great differences between these two universes, however, and a villain on his world isn't necessarily a villain on this one.

Read the entire interview at the DC Comics website.

November 26, 2015: Superman at the Macy's Thanksgiving ParadePrint

With Thanksgiving being celebrated in the USA today, here's a look back at Superman's history with Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

A Superman balloon first featured in the parade in 1939. The balloon was so large it needed to be handled by 50 people.

Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

The second Superman balloon first appeared in 1966 and, like its predecessor, featured an upright design.

The third Superman balloon first featured in the 1982 Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and was created to place Superman in a horizontal flying pose.

Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

The video clip below shows the same Superman balloon two years later in 1984.

However the same Superman balloon didn't fair too well a year later in 1985.

While Superman hasn't appeared in the parade for quite a few years, and isn't in this year's parade, it should be noted that the 1980's Superman balloon is the largest Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon ever, measuring 104 feet in length!
