"The Final Days of Superman" - Part 8: "Do or Die"

Unexpectedly the story isn't tied up in a neat bow but it is one hell of a finale and the best kind.

A series that ends with a yearning for more and unanswered questions is the greatest way to end this Superman's adventures.

The cameos were all welcome though rushed and not fleshed, they did provide for a thoroughly enjoyable twist to the plot and Clark White soaring in was brilliantly played out. I love that he is a mysterious stranger to these heroes but despite that he is readily embraced into the story.

I was pretty close to giving up on DC Comics.

That's not an exaggeration either. My favorite comic book company and my preferred comic universe seemed to be doing everything in their power to make me want to walk away. Between starting ACTION and DETECTIVE COMICS over at number one to getting rid of the Justice Society to establishing a nonsensical five year time line...it seemed like the powers that be were bound and determined to get rid of everything that made the company special.

I'd go into everything wrong they did with Superman but we don't have that kind of time.

It made me sad because as much as I like Marvel and as much as I have read books from other publishers DC was always my home and the New 52 did away with just about everything that made it feel that way. It's like that scene in the movie "Grosse Pointe Blank" where Martin goes to visit his old house and finds that it has been turned into a convenience store. I would stare at the new comics and recognize the structure of the universe but everything else had been changed into something...else. I tried about twenty titles when the New 52 began and four years later I was only buying the Superman titles and JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Then DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 came out.

And I was home again.

May 29, 2016: Jesse Eisenberg Confirms His "Justice League" InvolvementPrint

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor During an appearance at the MCM London Comic Con this weekend, Jesse Eisenberg confirmed that he will be returning to play the role of Lex Luthor in "Justice League - Part One", but is still waiting to hear when Zack Snyder will need him for filming.

"I'm kind of in wait," he revealed. "They just started filming Justice League, so I'm kind of like waiting for my crack at it. I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who's in it. You know, it's a really talented group of people."

Just what role Lex Luthor will play in the upcoming film is unknown at this point in time.

"Justice League - Part One" is scheduled for release on November 17, 2017.


May 29, 2016: Retro Review - "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"Print

May 29, 2016: Book Review - 100 Things Superman Fans Should Know & Do Before They DiePrint

100 Things New Superman Homepage reviewer Mario Bennese has submitted his first review for the website, "100 Things Superman Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die" by Joseph McCabe.

100 Things Superman Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die is unlike any Superman book I've ever read. SFX magazine editor Joseph McCabe is tasked with condensing nearly eighty years of Superman history, spanning both lore and popular culture, into a one-hundred chapter, 301 page book. For the most part, he is largely successful.

Comprised of one-hundred easily digestible chapters, McCabe manages to break down the Superman legend into its core components. Beginning with the creators and the creation, the book proceeds to discuss the evolution of the mythology. Nearly every mainstay of the franchise is touched upon in some form or another.

Released at least a month prior to the premier of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the revamping of the DC Universe in DC Universe Rebirth #1, the book is relatively up-to date, including an entire chapter dedicated to 2015's Supergirl TV show.

Read Mario's complete book review right here at the Superman Homepage.

May 29, 2016: Maryland Zoo Names Newborn Goat "Zod"Print

Zod The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore announced via a press release that they've welcomed the birth of a male African pygmy goat kid... calling him "Zod".

The kid was born on Monday, May 16, to the Zoo's African pygmy goat pair Lex and Lois. "Zod is another welcome addition to the Farmyard this spring," stated Carey Ricciardone, mammal collection and conservation manager at The Maryland Zoo. "This new little kid has been behind the scenes with Lois since his birth, giving them time to bond. As we have come to expect, Lois is taking very good care of her new kid."

In keeping with Superman-themed names for the pygmy goats, Zod is named for General Dru-Zod, a warlord from Superman's home planet of Krypton. He currently weighs seven pounds and is growing steadily. "He is still quite young, but is exploring his new barn, playing with Lois and napping," continued Ricciardone. "As always, our staff will continue to monitor Lois and Zod closely to ensure that they are doing well together."

Zoo visitors can see Lois and Zod in the Zoo's Farmyard area next to the sheep. "This little one is quite small and he will seek shady, cool places to hang out sometimes," concluded Ricciardone. "We encourage visitors to stop by to visit Zod and watch him grow up all summer long."

Read the full press release at the Maryland Zoo website.
