"24 Hours"

Cover: John Romita Jr. & Klaus Janson w/Martin

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Though a touching story, it really was a dull ending to Men of Tomorrow. It was brilliantly written, just a bit out of place as an ending. In the grand scheme though it has gone a long way to bringing Clark Kent to life. Since the New 52 began in 2011, Clark Kent hasn't really existed until the Greg Pak Smallville stories. The characterizations and relationships were spot on if only a bit vague from Perry and Steve. I like that Jimmy has been given a meatier role and is drawn into the mix more, especially as Lois has been essentially written out of the series as 'living scenery'. The mere fact that the Planeteers are getting back into Superman stories is a joy to see. I am still dubious as to how the solar flare will be used in the future but if we get more 'heart' stories than 'villain of the week' then this is really a turning point.

"Crucible" - Conclusion

Penciller: Emanuela Lupacchino
Inker: Ray McCarthy
Cover: Emanuela Lupacchino

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    There's nothing wrong with concluding a story arc. However, the ending of this one feels a bit rushed so DC can move on with "Convergence". I'm not saying that this wasn't a good book. The rating I gave it should tell how much I liked it. Yet, I got the sensation the creative was trying to put two issue or an annual into twenty-two pages.

    I'm really happy with how Kara and Mike's relationship developed in this series. I was afraid he'd be killed or some other cliched plot device would be used on one of my favorite supporting characters. I'm glad to see that the tired routes weren't taken regarding Mike.

March 20, 2015: Henry Cavill's Passion for SupermanPrint

Henry Cavill Henry Cavill was the star of a cover photo shoot for MODE magazine, and spoke with ShortList.com†about fashion, his upcoming role as Napoleon Solo in "The Man from UNCLE", and his thoughts on Superman.

So what could he say about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?

    "I can't tell you anything."

    Not even from a fashion perspective? Surely there was some costume envy. With all that black, Batman has a much more chic look. And external underpants have never caught on.

    "I'm incredibly loyal to my character," says Cavill, with genuine conviction. "I love him. I'm protective of him. Superman's the dude. He's an absolute ledge. I'd never say, ĎI'd prefer to be that superhero.' I'm Superman."

March 20, 2015: Thrilling Without Killing - Holding Superheroes to Higher StandardsPrint

Thrilling without Killing Scott Cranford, who played the official town Superman at the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois for many years, has written a thought-provoking article titled "Thrilling Without Killing". Here's an excerpt from the article...

    Why was Clark Kent drinking beer in both Superman Returns†and Man of Steel? Nothing against beer, but canít there be one guy who is above it. Shouldnít a superhero try to set a moral standard even if he is in his secret identity. If Iím a kid and I learn that Superman is down on booze, Iím going to be down on booze. I may go on to drink, but my hero is always going to hold that gold standard.

    It is amazing how many ďSuperheroesĒ† in big budget "Superhero" movies barely do anything heroic. In some, they are the cause of the problem.

    The blurry line of what makes up a Superhero worries me. Looking cool has become more important than doing right. I'm all for gritty superheroes but we need happy ones too. I donít want to see gritty become the norm. That's not what superheroes are about.

    When Superman snapped Zodís neck in Man of Steel, I was sadly kind of numb to it. The direction things were going, I was not too surprised. What did surprise me was the audiences reaction. People didnít want to see Superman kill.†That gave me hope.

In Episode 91, Bob talks about Supergirl in 3 different origins in the Silver Age, the Supergirl TV show and a little rant about the image of Action Comics 41 cover.
