    June 16, 2013 12:55 am No, I get that way of looking at it. To me, it kind of made Shannon's Zod more than a mustache twirling villain. He was doing what he was programmed to do. In a way it was further illustrating the advantage of Kal not having the burden of the traditional Kryptonian predestination as it was Zod's downfall. He could not adapt.
    June 16, 2013 12:31 am I posted this in the podcast thread but I'd like to share my thought here as well Regarding the controversial ending where Superman breaks Zod’s neck. It kind of makes sense if you take into consideration a few things. Zod starts the fight by informing Kal that his only reason for existence is for the protection and greater good of Krypton and its people. Since there will be no more Kryptonians or a new Krypton he has no purpose in life. His warrior programming couldnt handle failure or obsolescence. He also stated that the only way that the fight would end is with the death of one of them. With this in mind, Zod, knowing that Kal has found a purpose in protecting humanity at any cost, states that he’s going to start killing humans. Starting with the family painted into the corner with laser eyes. Kal realizes he’s dealing with a desperate man that has nothing to lose. Realizing that Zod would not stop, he did what he had to do. At the same time, I think we can assume that Zod could have broken out of the choke hold or twitched his head closer to the family if he wanted to. What he was really doing was begging for Kal to kill him the only way a warrior of his caste would want to go out. Like Faora said, “a good death is its own reward.” Zod preferred death to a life without meaning or usefulness so he forced Kal's hand.

    February 15, 2013 11:37 pm It is a figure of speech but I think (And here is where I could be wrong) the writer was trying to allude to the Jim Croce song "You dont mess around with Jim" where the lyrics say: "You dont tug on Superman's cape. You dont spit into the wind. You dont pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with Jim." At any rate, not only is it gross but peeing on Superman is just begging for a stern talking to.
    May 7, 2012 12:48 am Yeah, Razor was fighting Bleeze (I think). She has her own wings and can fly without the power of the ring.

    January 19, 2012 5:49 pm So much for it not happening so quickly eh? I never thought they would pull the trigger on this. I didnt like it at first, but after seeing some of the different treatments of the logo type, it's growing on me.
    January 17, 2012 9:55 pm This wont be a logo used on the front covers of the comic books. Probably more of an internal letterhead for the company than anything else.The "dc swoosh" logo is kind of perfect for all the comic book applications for the company its simple, and dynamic at the same time. This new one is a snoozer.
