Your treasury of Man of Steel-related reading for the end of the weekend

June 16, 2013


Man of Steel is out and in theaters. If you’ve seen it, great. If you haven’t, maybe get around to it at some point. In either case, feel free to read the review I posted, which I enjoyed putting together just about as much as anything else I’ve ever put on here — for whatever that’s worth. Since then, I’ve seen MoS again — I live a five-minute walk from a theater, all right? — and I found myself actually liking it more a second time around. Again, for whatever that’s worth.

Anyway, I thought it might be nice to organize some links to some of the better, crappier, and loonier Superman stuff we’ve looked at here during this blog’s relatively brief existence. A digest of sorts. Click on the following links if you’d like to ponder some Supery material. If not, no harm no foul.

Here’s some General Zod and Faora for you, trapped in the Phantom Zone but still bedeviling the bejesus out of Superman and the Flash.

Superman II Topps cards? Superman II Topps cards.

Superman doesn’t fare well under a red sun. And he’s always prone to getting half-nude.

Gee, you think Lex Luthor might turn up in a sequel? Brush up on his Unauthorized Biography.

Superman HATES party crashing.

The time Superman met the young version of himself who wasn’t the young version of himself. And that young version of himself that wasn’t the young version of himself would one day go on to kill the young version of himself who was a clone of himself and the older version of himself who wasn’t an older version of himself.

Take a Golden Age Superman quiz.

Yes, there was a Sword of Superman.

The comic that taught me that you can swim in quicksand. Knowledge for life.

You want Superman mashed into an H.G. Wells classic? Here you go. (Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, too.)

And there’s more. Maybe we’ll save them for the sequel. Happy Father’s Day to all the pops out there.
