G2FACTOR: ADV OF SUPERMAN, SMALLVILLE S11, & SUPERMAN UNCHAINED DCut

su1

DC Entertainment continues its strong arming of the Superman mythos by shoving the fauxmance at readers hungry for a REAL Superman.  Batman/Superman took no time to make us ragey.   Greg Pak brought the bullship into Earth 2 by having a Wonder Woman attacking and stabbing a Lois Lane.  It does not matter that it may not have been a true Lois, because the imagery is embedded into our brains now.  Apparently, New 52 Superman has ‘always’ had a ‘thing’ for Wonder Woman since he saw her on Earth 2 as he watched her stab an Earth 2 Lois Lane.   Didn’t matter that he found out his counterpart was married to Lois Lane — he basically slobbered over Earth 2 Wonder Woman.   DC Entertainment does not respect Lois Lane nor Wonder Woman for that matter.  Apparently a multi-universal cat-fight over Superman is what they think will sell books.   But in their scenario Wonder Woman will always win because Lois Lane is just a mere human.   Superman’s dual identity is a mockery in the new 52.

Since these new ‘starving’ creators don’t seem to have a backbone and stand up for the true Superman mythology, then we will not review their dictated DC Entertainment plot lines and characterizations.  Dan Didio said at this year’s SDCC that the fauxmance was a centerpiece of the new 52.  He can keep it.  People don’t eat the centerpiece.  So there’s people at the table waiting for the main course and are being told to look at the pretty eugenic centerpiece.  Fans are starving for real Superman stories, but apparently won’t get them in the new 52.

Scott Snyder came out this week and said that he will not be doing the fauxmance in his story/book.   Can we get an Amen?  Mr. Snyder has enough clout to do pretty much as he wishes and he has Co-Pub Jim Lee helping him (so far).  Fans of Superman should rush to get Superman Unchained #1, Superman Unchained #2, and Superman Unchained #1 the Director’s Cut.  Apparently in Superman Unchained #3 coming out in August, Lois Lane plays a crucial and important role as she will throughout the book.  Be sure to show your approval of this story and characterization by putting it on your pull list.

For those of you not caring about the Trinity War — it’s okay, the villains win anyway.  September is Villains Month and there will be no Superman Unchained that month.  October through March will be DC Entertainment’s Forever Evil (like we didn’t know already that this was what the new 52 is all about) arc.  The fauxmance book begins in October as well.  Coincidence?

About the bullship book.  DC Entertainment was downplaying the romantic storyline of the book even though all we’ve seen them do is suck face time and time again like rabid teenagers.   Soule, the co-pubs and Berganza said that it’s an action book.  Apparently Superman and Wonder Woman are too busy fighting villains to get busy.  Fine by us.  Still not buying or reviewing.  Interesting that the first villain to cockblock the power twins will be none other than Faora from the Man of Steel movie.   Cheap shot, DCE.  Not even she could tempt us.

Warning:  Scott Lobdell said he was featuring Lois Lane about 75% in the Superman Annual #2, but what was revealed at SDCC was they did something very bad to Lois.   Was there a doubt?

And Superman #22 by Lobdell is not worth the time to read it.

Superman fans need to ask themselves this question:  Why did Andy Diggle walk off Action Comics?   Was it what DC Entertainment was going to do to Lois Lane?   Diggle is writing Captain America: Living Legend now.  So it’s not as if he can’t write a top icon at one of the big two.   You be the judge.

Join us this Sunday at 5pm ET/4pmCT as we discuss Adventures of Superman #13, Smallville Season 11 #56, and Superman Unchained #1 the Director’s Cut.  Also on the docket is more discussion regarding SDCC ’13 and the Man of Steel film, as always.

G2FACTOR: New 52 #17s, JLA #1, & SS11 #35

G2JLA1A17

Sunday, February 24th at 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will be discussing a myriad of comic books besides our digital-first, Smallville Season 11 #35.  This week Action #17 was late (probably due to Morrison getting an additional issue), Supergirl #17 gave us a fight between the Maiden of Might and Wonder Woman as well as a Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen appearance.  (Now why can’t we get that in Action and Superman?).  Justice League #17 (fish out of water story).  Also interesting developments in Wonder Woman #17 (Orion apparently went to the Guy Gardner School of Romance) and a #1 issue of Justice League of America (Go Steve Trevor!!!).

Plenty to talk about including how we basically are feeling regarding Superman storylines and the comic book industry generally.

Hope you’ll join us.  Live chat and streaming during the show.  Downloads on iTunes and talkshoe after the show.

G2FACTOR: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #21 & SUPERMAN #13

ARE YOU REAAADDDDDYYY?????

Sunday, October 28th at 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will discuss SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #21 by Bryan Q. Miller and Superman #13 by Scott Lobdell.  Two very different Clark Kents and Supermen.

Smallville Season 11 should prove exciting as we’ll see what happens to a Kryptonite compromised Superman and how he survives with the help of Batman and the love of his life, Lois Lane.

Superman #13 gave us the first Clark Kent/Superman in Metropolis story by Scott Lobdell.  He plotted Superman Annual #1.  Is there a difference between the two Clarks in these two books, too?

Grant Morrison will be putting 5 years of story in Action #15 through #17.  Morrison stated there would be a death of Superman story involved in his last arc.

While watching Andy Diggle interviews during NYCC, found out this information:

“I very much want to balance the extremely epic, massive-scale action heroics with the human side of Kal-El and Clark Kent too. I would like to see him explored a little bit more. And I would like to see his relationship with Lois Lane explored a little bit more in the New 52.”

 “I think that he feels a bit like a fish out of water, and I think Diana feels the same way, so to a degree, they feel like kindred spirits, which is not quite the same as his relationship with Lois.”

Black suit in Superman #0 appears in Action #18 and the H’El on Earth storyline between the superbooks spins into another crossover involving Action also.

This last clue is interesting as we saw this symbol in Superman #7:

It’s also significant that Helspont had an arc in the Superman book and told Clark in the Superman Annual #1, he knew Jor-El.  In Superman #0 we see Kal-El on Krypton (dressed in black) narrating the story of his parents and the discovery they were expecting him.  We saw the black suit again in Action #18 on Tony Daniel’s cover.   A Daemonite horn also appeared in Superman #0 as it did in Superman #1.  Helspont could be creating an alternate reality for Superman to exist in.

Could Superman, Supergirl, Superboy, and Action be going from H’El to Helspont?  Will this possible crossover lead to the bigger crossover in the Justice League, Justice League of America and possibly Justice League Dark known as the Trinity War?

Here’s the reason why we ask that question:

This appeared in the Justice League 6 backstory:

And more recently in the backstory of Justice League #13 the intro to Justice League of America:

So join us on Sunday as we talk about Superman in SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 and Superman #13.  Live chatroom and streaming available during show.  Downloads on  iTunes  and talkshoe.

Kimmie and Chris will be giving us their impressions of what is going on, as usual.

Tasha will have a new blog article on OSCK this week.

G2FACTOR: SS11 #14, SUPERMAN #12 & NU SNAFU NEWS

Sunday,August 26th at 5pmEDT/4pmCDT G2Factor will discuss Dan Jurgens last issue of Superman #12.  The above is not the cover, but it is a great shot of Superman and how he feels about humanity and getting a life.  Also we’ll be talking about Bryan Q. Miller’s latest chapter of Smallville Season 11 (#14), episode DETECTIVE.

If you want the REAL Superman, Smallville Season 11 is the book for you.  No stunts necessary.  Just great writing and art with humor, action, heart and mystery.

You know we’ll also be hashing out our feelings regarding the latest Lee/Johns announcement for Justice League #12 regarding Superman and Wonder Woman.  Should be interesting.  Below is the panel Jim Lee ripped off for the new light-switched power couple.  The original had much more meaning since it was a reuniting of man and wife.  Two souls joined in love and never beaten by adversity.

Superman and his wife, Lois Lane from For Tomorrow

Also this week was Wonder Woman #12’s cover.  That’s Artemus she’s kissing in a more in-character positioning.  We will not be reviewing Wonder Woman.

So join us on Sunday on talkshoe.  Live chatroom and streaming available during show.  Downloads available after the show on iTunes and talkshoe.
