That's fucking ridiculous.

With all the world-saving he does, he deserves to kick back with a couple of beers and get shit-faced sometimes.

Thank God kids will never know the horrors of an alien who wants to be human acting like a human for a second or two.

Dumb.

The label on the new cover looks really bad.

I showed it to my friend and my wife and they both laughed. So lame. It's not like he was falling down drunk or like it was very noticeable, most folks probably would have thought it was a soda anyways. A grown man sharing a beer with his father is not something they should be ashamed of or censor. Now if Robin had a beer, I could see blocking that our.

Here let me be the dc exec's:

"Okay guys, you see this barely noticable lable of the drink superman's drinking, its obviously beer!"

"Okay....whats the point?"

"This is superman, he can't be normal! He can't drink at his age. Okay we are going to fix this.."

"But sir, I really don't think its that big of a deal."

"Shut up and get me a really ugly and bright label to stick in front of this."

:roll: :-D

Yeah, now it's "SODA POP". :roll:

Think they're holding their drinks a little weird. I like the touch with the Brainiac moon, though. :)

Sadly, the original was actually designed to help combat obesity, too.


If you look close, it WAS Light Beer, after all. ;)

You know that, if they'd left the cover as is, some jerk columnist from Yahoo or something would write an article about it, talking about how much Superman has changed; how he's getting drunk and whatnot.

It would have been worth it, though. Wonder how much flak, if any, DC'll catch for changing the cover?

Seeing how painfully obvious the change is, its more noticable now, which means they may catch some flack.

Seriously which idiot decided to make a really shitty neon sign, which actually stands out instead of blurring the bottle a little or trying to actually make sure the words aren;t visible. I didn't even notice it was a damn beer my first thought would be of the rootbeer variety.

Sweet fucking lord, please tell me they have a copy of that Batman comic in my pullbox at the store. Did these things get out to the stores and then recalled?
