As would I.
Straight men are more complicated.
We want Wonder Woman to rescue us, and then tie us up.
Yeah, but if he created a *workable* option, on the other hand...
Grant Morrison wanted to do that story.
The GoFundMe has a goal of $100,000, and it's about half way there.
Liked for the photo, not the condition. That sucks to hear.
Robert Garcia, a new Democratic Congressman from California, will take his oath of office on a copy of the US Constitution, a photograph of his late parents, his naturalization paperwork, and ... a copy of Superman #1:
That's so cool to hear.
Buzzfeed is still around that's not so good never liked them
Swearing in on a genuine Superman #1 is quite a flex.
This has me stoked.
Superman has a great line in it.
The cover art is fantastic.. I like it and I'm not a fan of comic books
Superman gets a step up here…very well done.
So what does Lex do? Does he get off the son and reset everything?
Superman through the years
When was Lex made part of the character ensemble? Was he always there or made when Supes became more popular?
Lex Luthor first appeared in "Action Comics #23", dated April 1940, some two years after Superman's debut.
Luthor first appeared in 1940 (two years after Superman's comics debut) in Action Comics #23. So he's got a very long history.
He first appeared in live action in the second of Kirk Alyn's Superman serials, Atom Man vs. Superman, in 1950. Oddly, he never appeared in the George Reeves TV series.
Of course, he was memorably played by Gene Hackman in Superman '78, and has been a fixture in Superman adaptations ever since, as well as a continuing presence in the comics.
I sometimes see people contending he's overused, particularly in the movies, but I can't agree. I think you have it exactly right when you call him part of Superman's "ensemble." He's not just another villain at this point, but a key supporting character, Superman's opposite number and crucial to his mythos. Probably only Lois Lane is more important.
Movie versions of Lex are comical. Rather the animated version.. One with Clancy Brown
The Super girl version was quite good, wish they'd use Cryer in S&L version.
Cryer was a revelation, a seemingly improbable casting masterstroke.
I'm not as big a fan of the animated series as I'm supposed to be.
Cryer should have played Lenny Luthur, again.
Read Action 1050.
Lex Luthor made a global brainwashing machine to make everyone forget that Clark is Superman. Luthor grudgingly accepts the the world needs a Superman, after a few disastrous blips in service, but Superman works best, when the plebs think of him as a god.
The planet forgets that Clark is Superman, chooses a lack of curiosity on the subject, and out right ignores any glaring clues that Clark is Superman, like the millions of youtubes which admit that Clark is Superman.
Anyone silly enough to still go looking for the truth, or accidentally finds it, has a stroke, which is what happens to Perry White. Hospital, surgery, not dead.
The Kent farmhouse was under a telepathy proof force field, and the Justice League have Martian Psi Shields, so it's only almost all of the planet who forgot.
While monologuing Luthor says "You are lucky I let you keep your wife."
So, DC just told Bendis to chew on a bag of dicks.
Separate names with a comma.
