Superman Makes Life Change, Further Ruined

Superman Makes Life Change, Further Ruined

Superman will be getting another life change, further destroying his character.

Superman fans reading USA Today this morning discovered a nasty surprise waiting for them.  The newspaper reported that Clark Kent, Superman's gentle alter-ego, would be quitting the Daily Planet to start up his own blog.  According to Scott Lobdell, DC was looking to explore Superman through a more modern lens and decided to strip the character of his job in addition to his marriage to Lois Lane and his iconic red outer-underpants.   With this final outrage, we can only expect fans of Superman to finally declare the character unrecognizable and spend the next four months complaining incessantly about the change.

According to the article, Superman will be trying to start up his own version of the Huffington Post or Drudge Report and will be joined by Cat Grant, who is inspired by Kent's public notice of resignation.  We imagine upcoming arcs will focus on Kent trying to balance writing articles that matter to him with news articles that pander to powerful Internet fanbases that bring in loads of hits and help keep his blog's ad revenue up.  We also expect Kent to struggle with the moral implications of accepting free review copies in exchange for positive reviews and then getting cruelly shut out by major publishers when deciding to stand for truth, justice, and quality writing.

Of course, this isn't the first DC character that's recently turned to a life of blogging.  Frankenstein, former agent of S.H.A.D.E., recently joined the Outhouse's staff after getting laid off by DC.  We'd hire Clark Kent, but we're afraid that his brand of hard-hitting journalism wouldn't fit in with our typical output.  Anyways, welcome to the blogosphere, Clark Kent.  We hope you survive the experience.
