June 16, 2015: Gene Luen Yang asks "Is Superman Still the Man of Tomorrow?"Print

Superman #41 In a blog entry on his own personal website, "Superman" writer Gene Luen Yang ponders the reasons why Superman has been known as the "Man of Tomorrow", and explores whether or not that moniker still fits today. Here's an excerpt from his blog...

    So how does Superman, a character whose "tomorrow-ness" dates back to the 1930s, deal with the "tomorrow-ness" of today?

    That's a major thread in "Before Truth," the first Superman story arc I'm doing with the inimitable John Romita Jr. The Man of Tomorrow goes up against an enemy who wields information like a weapon, who's as comfortable in bits as he is in atoms.

    Superman's secret identity has always been a cornerstone of who he is. But the very notion of a hidden second life represents information that's been contained, that's under control. In the era of Edward Snowden and Wikileaks and doxxing, is a secret identity even viable any more?

    And more importantly, will Superman's most timeless character traits - his selflessness, his grit, his compassion for the underdog - survive such a drastic change to his status quo?

June 14, 2015: Superman Celebration Closing Ceremony VideoPrint

Superman Celebration The Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois is over for another year. Here below we have a video of the Closing Ceremony...

Many thanks to Ken Sills and Jamie Kelley for the amazing job they've done covering the events of the 2015 Superman Celebration. The LiveStream videos have given those of us who were unable to attend this year the ability to still feel like we were there in some capacity.

Thanks once again to Jamie and Ronda Kelley for running the Superman Homepage "Meet & Greet". Thanks to Ken and Syndi Sills for their assistance, and to everyone else who helped make the 2015 Superman Celebration the fun event it always is.

If you have never been to the annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois then you absolutely must make plans to attend in 2016. You'll have the time of your life!


June 14, 2015: "Supergirl" Cast on Kara Becoming a HeroPrint

Supergirl Poster Last month, CBS released an extended trailer for "Supergirl" at the network's Upfront event, IGN.com caught up with the show's stars, Melissa Benoist (Kara/Supergirl), Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers), and Mehcad Brooks (James Olsen) to find out their thoughts on their characters and the show in general. Here's part of that interview...

    IGN: For Kara, what is it about her that made her hold back until now? Obviously she saw what her cousin was doing. Why didn't she leap into that too?

    Benoist: There are numerous reasons that you'll discover throughout the show. Also I think part of her thinks Earth already had a hero. It's been 24 years and she comes to Earth and Superman, who was a baby then, is now grown and is Earth's hero and she kind of feels like she won't live up to what he has created for himself.

    IGN: What does Alex think as she sees her adopted sister start to take this very big new step?

    Leigh: My character is very concerned about it because now she's put herself out in the public so that the public could identify her and then it becomes a big threat and an issue just for safety purposes and what not. You come to learn a lot about my character and what she does and who she really is and how it correlates to where Supergirl is right now and how it's really super bad timing... I didn't mean to say super like that! [Laughs]

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    I'm going into this Earth 2 series cold, meaning I haven't read any of the previous titles before now. As of this writing, I've been binge reading them. There's a reason for that, and it's the same reason I didn't give the book a perfect score. It's assumed that the buyer read the other books. Thus, the first chapter is not very reader friendly. Sure it gives a little background, but it's not enough for newbies.

    While much of the story centers around Batman, we do see Earth 2's Supergirl in flashbacks. I'm confident we'll see more of this world's heroes as the series progresses even though we don't see much of the Superman family at this point. Don't panic, fans, we'll see our favorites in the next books.
