Superman #2 (Thomas Wolfe Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Oct 27, 2011 1:14 pm

A solid issue, and an improvement over #1. I think this was mostly down to the fact that Perez stuck to only having one method of narration in showing us Superman’s thoughts, instead of having not only Superman’s thoughts, but also a Clark Kent news article and even more besides. It meant the book felt a lot less cluttered. But that doesn’t mean that less happened, we continued to get more insight into the new world of Superman, the mysterious plot continues to bubble under, and the fight between Supes and the only-invisible-to-him monster was enjoyable and innovative. The thing I like most about this book is that you really get a sense that this is a Superman moving forward, it’s using modern technology in the story and the characters have evolved from their usual status quos. The scenes with Clark and Lois were a little weird though, I’m still not used to them being split up, I like the change, but it’s disconcerting.

so Jonathan Carroll isn't even a boyfriend, just "an out-of-town friend who showed up" to fuck? Lois is a whore. :lol: :smt011

beyond her, i really enjoyed the issue. i'm still unsure on all the characters' relationships with each other, historically and currently, but the plot was interesting, the action scenes were very well-crafted and handled, and i love Merino's art. a step up from #1, and one i have no qualms about leaving on the pull list.

As opposed to Lana Lang's firecrotch? I'm sure she took on the Smallville football team like an assembly line. :lol:

Ladies, ladies. They're both whores and you're both fat, middle-aged men arguing over imaginary girlfriends of Superman. :lol:

I'd take issue with you calling Lois a whore for that. Is Batman a whore for having Catwoman as a fuck-buddy?

That's because people actually find Lois appealing, whereas even Superman doesn't want to revisit that ginger vajayjay. :P

Meahwhile, outside of fighting the monster of the month, Superman/Clark seems to be a lonelier, more pathetic pu$$y than before. I paid $2.99 to read Superman, no Charlie Brown.

And when the f :evil: :evil: k are we going to get around to see Clark Kent do anything than mope around the Daily Planet? Let's see him covering the stories of some of these poor and downtrodden people we keep hearing about. Let's see situations develop where stories Clark is working on turn into jobs for Superman.

That's pretty sexist, I know we're all annoyed at Comics Alliance and Bleeding Cool banging on about how sexist all comics fans are now, but it always rubbed me wrong when fans called comics-women who slept with a man who they weren't in a relationship with whores, it happened with Gwen Stacy and it annoyed me. It's OK for Daredevil or Hawkeye to fuck everyone under the sun including cheat on their wives, but when Lois or Gwen Stacy do similar, they are whores, and hell Lois and Gwen aren't even married.

Not saying you're sexist Chap, but it's a general comment on the fact that calling female characters whores is a bug-bear of mine.
