Superman #5 (Menace or Messiah? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Feb 01, 2012 1:21 pm

It’s brilliant to have Nicola Scott back on art for this issue, I really like her style, it’s classical yet modern. I’ll definitely check out Earth 2 for her artwork alone. The story here was decent too, as an imposter Superman goes around killing and destroying things that have threatened Metropolis in the past. I will say that I was annoyed they killed Titano, I love that dumb ape. I wonder if some of the weirdoes online that have been complaining about the new Superman being a ‘pussy’ preferred the evil version? I imagine they did, their vision of Supes seems to be a big dumb fascist jock. One thing I like that’s run through this whole arc is the focus that Perez has put on the media and how it perceives Superman. Today’s media climate is vastly different from 1938’s and since Clark Kent works for a newspaper it makes a lot of sense for it to be explored here. Perez only has one issue left, let’s hope he provides a satisfying conclusion. Here’s an out-there prediction, #1 of this book featured a link to Stormwatch right? What if the villain here is the personification of Metropolis as a City? Jack Hawksmoor spoke to Gotham and Paris, this mix of fire and ice could be Metropolis!

And Punchy, just to make things clear.

I want a Superman who's noble, not self-righteous.
I want a Clark Kent with a backbone. And one who actually does some reporting and not finger-waving (like in Action #3).

Is that what you consider "a big dumb fascist jock?"
