Join us on Saturday, September 10th as we discuss the classic 1938 Action Comics #1, the issue that started a multi million dollar industry and America’s most recognizable icon worldwide.
We will compare it to Grant Morrison’s 2011 version seeing how their tone, stories, and characters are similar and different. Are current times indicative of the late 30’s? Does the history of the Superman character since that time demand some acknowledgement?
Is Superman more than an alien with superpowers and a secret identity?
Does he catalyst people to aspire to be better than they are? To be all that they can be?
Is cynicism a valid portrayal of maturity?
Does might make right? Should that question be brought up in a story involving Clark Kent?
Should Lex Luthor be drinking hyper caffeine drinks?
Lois Lane, has she met Superman face to face? Has she met Clark Kent face to face?
Jimmy Olsen is now friends with Clark but not Superman?
Is General Sam Lane like his Post Crisis self or more like his Ironside/Flashpoint self?
And who is this mystery woman that the DCnU has appearing in multiple #1 issues? Did you spot her?
And why are we talking about Swamp Thing #1?
Despite the fact Dan Didio said there would be no crossovers, Superman complete with Kryptonian armor shows up to speak to Alec Holland.
Yes, the mystery woman shows up in it, too
