October 2, 2014: When was Superman First Referred to as the "Man of Steel"?Print

Man of Steel

Did You Know?

When was Superman first referred to as the "Man of Steel"?

The "Man of Steel" moniker was first used in reference to Superman within the pages of Action Comics #6 (November 1938).

The nickname appeared for the first time in the front page headline of the Daily Star newspaper, reading "Mystery Man of Steel re-appears".

Action Comics #6

It only took a few months for the phrase to catch on, with a panel at the end of Action Comics #11 (April 1939) appearing in a small one-panel advertisement reading "More Startling Adventures of Superman (Man of Steel) Action Comics".

October 2, 2014: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 174th episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

At the end of the previous episode Mike and Jeff talked about how they were going to start their coverage of WORLDS COLLIDE in this episode. Well, life being what it is (a fickle beast with a dark sense of humor and terrible timing) the boys couldn't quite get to that. They wanted to maintain a regular release schedule of episodes so they decided to look at the e-mail they had received over the past year and read it on the air. They don't do this near enough and they feel bad about it but the episodes are packed as it is so the time isn't always there for e-mail. So sit back and enjoy this rather laid back episode where Mike and Jeff get to talk about all kinds of Superman stuff, all at the direction of you the listener.

Next time: WORLDS COLLIDE Part 1. Promise

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.

October 1, 2014: Ben Affleck Explains Batman/Superman vs Star Wars RivalryPrint

SuperJedi Fans following the development of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" would be well aware of the cross-over mash-ups director Zack Snyder and his Star Wars counterpart JJ Abrams have been having fun with over the past few months.

Some of the photos that have been shot back and forth include Henry Cavill as a SuperJedi, C3PO as the C3PED CRUSADER, Batman and R2D2 as BATMAN & R2BIN, and the Gotham police arresting a Storm Trooper who apparently took the Batmobile for a joyride. Most recently Abrams posted a video of the Batmobile attached to the exterior of the Millennium Falcon.

In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, Ben Affleck reveals how this whole thing began...

"I think it was started because JJ [Abrams] and Colin Anderson, who is a great [camera] operator who always works on my movies, and JJ is always trying to steal, and I'm trying to steal back, sent me a picture of the two of them wearing cheap Batman masks," explains Affleck.

"I showed it to Zack [Snyder], and said 'this is bulls***, we have to do something'."

Hollywood Costume includes montages, animation, film clips, and projections, supported by a specially commissioned score written by British composer Julian Scott. The clothes are exhibited alongside quotes and interviews with costume designers, directors, and actors discussing the role that costume plays in creating the characters on screen.

September 30, 2014: Amy Adams on Location in Detroit for "Batman v Superman"Print

Looking very relaxed as Lois Lane in denim overalls, actress Amy Adams was photographed on set in Detroit, Michigan today as filming for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" continues.

    The 40-year-old actress is currently in Detroit, where she appeared to be dressed in character as persistent reporter Lois Lane while taking a call during a short break between takes.

    Sitting cross-legged on the grass close to a group of stationary trailers, Amy looked preoccupied as she chatted into her mobile phone before resuming work on another scene.

    Dressed in a pair of casual denim overalls, a loose grey T-shirt and white Converse trainers, the five-time Oscar-nominated star eventually made her way back across the exterior set, her phone still pressed against an ear.
