Yes, it matters greatly - it's a vitally important matter, one of national importance - you seem angry, do genitals scare you?


Anyway, let's get back to the matter at hand - Superman - cut or not?

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Kai "the spy", while I can't speak for the other flags, and I'm not going to take the time to research your post, I can tell you definitely that the colors you have labeled as "Bright" for the flag of the United States are not the colors that are officially required for the flag when it is used by the U.S. federal government.

Scientific color matching requires properly calibrated equipment and careful control of many factors. The colors given at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of..._States#Colors derive from specifications approved by the General Services Administration, and you can see its reference chain there. I checked part of that chain and it appears to be valid. Besides the codes derived directly from the GSA-approved specification, the Pantone Approximations are particularly noteworthy, because the codes provided for them are from government sources and they are explicitly designed for display on the Internet.

In any case, when used by the U.S. federal government, the colors of the flag of the United States are supposed to be considerably more muted than the colors you label in your post as "Bright". I believe this undermines a large part of your argument.

Clearly Superman's penis is of paramount importance.

I like to think that Jonathan Kent's Jewish, but Martha's not, and forbid it, and on reflection Jonathan agreed it was unnecessary.

Nice. And a super-villain in the background, I see.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I don't think the new suit looks either less or more ridiculous than Christopher Reeve's suit. Both are really equally ridiculous-looking. Also, there's nothing intrinsically objectionable about the new suit. It's equally as arbitrary to any of the older suits going back to the original.

As has been essentially pointed out upthread, if purism were the highest ideal, we must never have allowed Superman's appearance to depart from that in Action Comics #1.

I'm much happier with the new suit than the one in Superman Returns. It can only be Superman's, and the character in that picture can only be Superman.

Is that picture a manip or not? Can people please say when they are posting manips and/or where their images come from? Thanks. (ETA: I see you did that, Space Therapist. Thanks.)

Yes it's a manip, from one of the spy pics. It's a very good one though.

"Junk" is a common, and acceptable, slang term for a man's genitals, his package, his batch, his meat and two veg, his ball and tackle, his ladymaker, his cloaks and dagger and whatever other term you want to use.
