I don’t understand why they couldn’t just straighten the New 52 character out. As I recall when the New 52 started it was to focus on a younger Superman that would mature and develop into the Man of Steel we all know. I was looking forward to that whole love triangle type dynamic between Superman Clark and Lois that eventually leads to a relationship. I was looking forward to re-building the dynamics between Superman and his rogue gallery. I think it was a missed opportunity and don’t like how they just went down this rabbit hole they couldn’t get out… Read more »

Because nearly no one liked that Superman. He lost most of his current fan base and the newcomers weren’t enough to replace what they lost.

There was potential there – sadly,… Read more »

It’s a pretty great looking statue, but the price?!?!?! (By the way, this article really SHOULD mention how expensive it is.) Blows my mind that anyone would spend $750 on something like this: it’s not a freaking Michelangelo …

Nice statue! The New 52 costume looks nice in 3D.

The shape and lines of the New52 boots actually look a lot better IMO in some cosplays I’ve seen than on the page because it’s basically a red leather boot with detailing as opposed to something rendered as shinny and armored.
