It may seem that I’ve abandoned this site and blog, but I am working on a couple things, and today have a minor but fun update. I recently created a Superman crossword puzzle and have it linked to on the main site in addition to here. I plan on creating more Superman crossword puzzles in […]

Young Justice Review

Main characters of Young Justice Season 1 (Robin, Artemis, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian, and Aqualad)

Earlier, I wrote a post reviewing the version of Superman featured in the Young Justice cartoon. It wasn’t exactly a favorable review. But the show in general is another story, especially if we’re talking about Season 1. Since this site is mostly geared to people who are already DC fans, I won’t go into too […]

What does “superhero” mean?

Group shot of the Justice League founding members in the DCAU (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkgirl)

Most dictionary definitions of superhero include having superhuman powers as one of the criteria, which annoys me to no end considering Batman, obviously one of the most popular and famous superheroes of all time, doesn’t meet this criterion. The truth is, I don’t think a good definition of a superhero can really be summed up […]

The Problem with Young Justice Superman

Superman in Young Justice

If you’re at all familiar with the Young Justice cartoon, you might think this article sounds a bit boring. And I don’t blame you; the problem with this cartoon’s incarnation of the Man of Steel seems glaringly obvious: in Season 1, he refuses to engage with Superboy, despite Superboy desperately wanting his guidance. (This version […]

Awwww yeah! Exactly the Superman cartoon I’ve been hoping for!

My Adventures of Superman screenshot depicting Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen

In fact, it’s so close to what I would’ve done it’s almost a bit weird! We don’t have a release date, or a trailer. But a new Superman cartoon, My Adventures with Superman, has indeed been announced, and we do have a teaser screenshot and a bit of information. I’ve thought for a while that […]

Superman & Lois Pilot First Impressions: It was OK I guess

Superman & Lois poster

Spoiler warning. I watched the pilot episode of Superman & Lois and, well, I didn’t find it particularly good. It certainly wasn’t wretchedly bad or anything, either. I suppose I might as well keep watching the show out of curiosity, but I won’t be surprised if I end up dropping it soon. I can’t really […]

Adventures of Superman Episode Review: The Man Who Could Read Minds (S2E3)

Title Card for the Adventures of Superman episode "The Man Who Could Read Minds"

The Man Who Could Read Minds is a pretty typical for an episode in the first two seasons of Adventures of Superman: a crime story that is treated pretty seriously though it contains a gimmick that is a bit on the goofy side, with Superman thrown in. If you know anything about me, you know […]

A Quick Look at Two Superman Games

Part of the cover of Superman for the Sega Genesis alongside part of the cover for Superman: Countdown to Apokolips

It’s often claimed that there are no good Superman video games. I’ve only played two Superman games so far, but I’m going to dispute that claim slightly, because I think both of these games can at least be described as decent or kinda good. Neither of them are great, but they both have some positive […]

Is Superman Being “Overpowered” Actually Genius?

Cover of Superman #7 showing Superman descending with bullets bouncing off him, next to the text "World's Greatest Adventure-Strip Character"

Once my sister said to me that Superman is the best character because he’s bulletproof. So many action characters, such as Batman, just seem to miraculously dodge the bullets every time. Either that, or everyone attacking them apparently has a horrible aim. So in a way, Superman is the most “realistic”. Obviously his powers aren’t […]
