Where the Geek Girls Go

Out with the old . . .

Superman #1 (v3) came out this week.  Written by George Perez with art by Jesus Merino.  Set in present DCnU time, Clark has been in Metropolis for 5.5 years but apparently hasn’t inspired the citizenry of Metropolis or dated Lois Lane.   Many aspects of this book were better than Action, but this reboot leaves a whole lot to be desired even if we’ve only seen the first issues.

G2Factor will discuss this issue and how the DCnU is going generally.  Plus we may toss in some comments regarding the 1998 Superman 2000 pitch which has played out in different Superman stories and Spiderman stories.

We have questions.  Is DC so callous as to rip away Superman’s marriage and iconic relationship with Lois Lane and not give us any relationship at all, even after these characters have been in the same city for 5.5 years?   We’re still not sure Lois has met Clark or Superman in Action and we saw no interaction between Lois and Superman in this issue.  Clark is a character with great heart, unfortunately we are not seeing that in this DCnU Superman.  He seems petulant even after 5 years of saves in Metropolis.  Has he not matured?  No lessons learned?

What is Superman’s motivation or inspiration if he has no heart for people or Lois Lane in particular?  Being edgy all the time gets boring after a while.

Introducing new readers to this DCnU Superman may be fine and dandy for sales initially, but can loyal buying fans of the character keep swallowing this bitter pill of changes?  Especially when DC has gone out of its way to destroy the Kent marriage, Clark’s heart, Ma & Pa Kent and the Daily Planet?  Was sacrificing Clark’s hope and inspiration on the altar of new readers really a wise decision?

Join us October 1st at 6pm ET on talkshoe as we ask these and other questions.  Live streaming and chat.  Aftershow.  Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe.
