It shouldn’t have taken this long. Wonder Woman, the first full-fledged female superhero, created in 1942 by Charles Moulton Marston (also the creator of the polygraph test, in case you didn’t know) and H.G. Peter and maybe one of the most recognized comic book icons in history should have gotten a live action, full-length, wide released film adaptation DECADES ago. But perhaps the world was not ready. Perhaps female-led superhero movie flops like Catwoman and Elektra held things back. But let’s be honest here. The fact that Barb Wire got a movie before Wonder Woman is just too embarrassing.

"Return To Smallville -- The EPIC Conclusion!" So screams the cover copy for DC Comics Man Of Steel #6 ! This is the final issue in John Byrne's retelling of the Legend! This issue starts as Superman, on sabbatical, is flying into Smallville. He is there to visit his parents for a few days. Once he actually IS in town, Superman, using his super speed, changes into Clark Kent. "Clark Kent can mingle with the arriving passengers, and look for all world like I just got off of the bus from Kansas City!" Read more...

Now this is more like it, I say! This time, we get a sympathetic "villain". Man Of Steel starts off with with a nice touch on the cover. Whereas the other covers have all depicted that issues "Star", this cover shows the character FROM THE BACK (this is reminiscent of the movie "Frankenstein" with Boris Karloff. The first time we see the Frankenstein Monster, the creature comes through the doorway BACKWARDS! I do not know if this was intentional or not. But like I said, if it was, it was a nice touch)!

In Man of Steel #4, Superman meets Lex Luthor for the very first time (in the Post Crisis reality that is). Luthor is, of course, the man who will become Superman's mortal enemy. The issue opens with an unshaven Clark Kent receiving a special visitor -- Lois Lane. This is Lois' first ever visit to Clark's apartment and she is impressed by the spotless condition of said apartment. Lois is still harboring a grudge against Clark for his scooping of the Superman story from her. "You're not going to start in on THAT again, are you? It's been eighteen months!" To which Lois replies with precision -- "seventeen months, two weeks, four days and an odd number of hours and don't you forget it, Kent!!" Read more...

"No, no, boss - not -- not Happy Birthday!" Man of Steel # 3 starts off with Superman going to a neighboring city to apprehend a dangerous criminal -- The BATMAN! Superman sees the Batman swinging on his Batrope , while in pursuit of a thug with information that he seeks. Batman is startled when Superman grabs the Batrope with the intention of taking Batman to Police Headquarters. Since this is a place that Batman wishes to " ... visit on my OWN terms!" (this story takes place during Batman's early career when he was outside the law in Gotham City. At about the same time that this story appeared, Frank Miller's four part "Batman:Year One" story was hitting stands) And, before a startled Superman can react, Batman lets go of the Batrope and starts to plunge to the ground below! Superman tries to save him only to discover that he is "GONE! There is not a sign of him!" Read more...

A few weeks ago, I wrote a column on the thirtieth anniversary of The Man Of Steel # 1. The column received a great deal of attention, mostly positive, from my readership. So I decided to write another column about the miniseries! That's right, I am talking about Man Of Steel # 2! Read more...

It is hard to believe, but it has been thirty years this month that the first two issues of John Byrne's Superman: The Man Of Steel miniseries arrived in comic book shops!  Superman: The Man Of Steel # 1 (with two covers) arrived on July 10th 1986. One cover depicted Clark Kent just starting to change into Superman, in a closeup of the famous Superman " S " emblem. That is the one that I first bought all of those years ago, and my favorite even today. The story is standard in some ways. We get the explosion of Krypton, Kal-El being transported to Earth just prior to the explosion, being discovered by the Kent's and growing up to become Superman. It is all there. Read more...

Days ago, I had the opportunity to see Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice (reviewed by ENR's very own Lisa "Spazzy" McCarty back in early April) in movie theaters as I did not want to miss out on watching this now-landmark in the history of American superhero movies before it is no longer available for access in cinemas. Although I respected its director Zack Snyder's efforts in setting his version of Batman's first encounter with superpowered beings apart from the way DC Universe canon usually depicts it, I personally felt turned off by the last several minutes due to the direction it took in terms of Superman's role. To be honest, I was so disappointed that now I am unsure about if I ever wanted to see this iconic character again in any future live-action screen productions. So while I despised the ending as a Superman fan, I accepted the dark violent tone as a fan of both Batman and Wonder Woman. Read more...
