You seem to have trouble keeping Superman on-model. His jaw shrinks when he becomes Kent, and then rounds out when he becomes a blogger.
Seriously? Does it really matter that much?
It is a cartoon. Love to see you do any better
Each time it’s just the angle you’re looking at is changing slightly.
it’s another one of his superpowers
Well SOMETHING had to make glasses a suitable disguise.
Yes, it was in the Superman/Batman Annual #1 http://i.imgur.com/FQo1Z.png
Why should Superman and Clark Kent have the same chin? They’re different people. Unless … Wait a minute… Clark Kent is Amazi-Girl!
Y’know, I remember seeing the old Superman series in B&W when I was a kid, & the narration in these first 6 panels sure brings back memories.
Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He’s weak… he’s unsure of himself… he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race.
I thought that was your mother
So you saw Kill Bill Vol. 2 too, huh?
I get the context of the quote, but even then, he’s wrong. Kal-El was born and raised Clark Kent. He’s always been Clark Kent thanks to his upbringing
I’ve often wondered if that was Tarantino’s view of Superman or if he was using the bad metaphor to show Bill’s warped understanding of the world.
I doubt Clark would end up as a penniless blogger – he’d probably start writing books.
And probably would have tons of photos of exotic locales or other JLA members.
Well, technically the original artist of Superman used to draw Superman as a erotic figure before he did comic books.
I meant “exotic locales” not “erotic locals” XD
I seem to recall that Kent did work as a TV reporter for a time, in an attempt to modernize the series.
The newspaper stuff was more iconic, though, and the Crisis retconned it back to normal.
It’ll be interesting to see if they try something like that again.
well, they kinda just did. well take him out of newspapers and into a contemporary medium at least
LIES! I REFUSE to believe what you’re saying at the time this comic was originally posted!
Or, you know, that time circa 1997 when the entire Daily Planet got bought out by LexCorp, and went completely digital. It lasted about a year and a half, or 70-someodd issues. (Hey, remember when the Superman comics were so popular that DC could release AN ISSUE EVERY WEEK and KNOW IT WOULD SELL? Not to mention the spin-offs! What happened to end that?
Oh yeah, Dan DiDio was made editor-in-chief… a couple years later, it was considered not sustainable…)
I remember that.
The reason they undid it was primarily for “realism”‘s sake.
Basically, if you broadcast Clark Kent’s mug on the TV every night, reporting on Superman’s exploits… it doesn’t matter how good the Clark Kenting gets, eventually someone’s realize the similarities.
LOL, Superman the blogger.
Ha! DC will NEVER do that!
Hopefully he’ll shave before he saves the day
