PART THREE OF 'ON THE SCENE' - SUPERMAN...
SUPERMAN! First and greatest superhero of them all. Greatest?
In theory at least, as he's taken a bit of a kicking from various writers
messing around with his legend down through the years. The only time I
read a Superman comic nowadays is if it's an old one in my collection or a
reprint in a facsimile edition. The MAN Of STEEL as he is today is just
not the same guy I grew up with, name and powers notwithstanding.
If you feel the same, you may enjoy reading about the mighty MAN
Of TOMORROW's silver screen adventures from these pages of On
The SCENE Presents (The) SUPER HEROES, as it comes from a
time (1966) when the MAN From KRYPTON was still recognizable to
oldtimers like you and me. ('Scuse me while I gob into the spitoon.)
Let's hope the upcoming big-budget movie from ZACK SNYDER is
truly a return to greatness for CLARK KENT and his famous alter-ego.
If the world ever needed a hero to look up to, it needs one now - and ol'
Supes is the best man for the job. Whether Zack or HENRY CAVILL
are likewise qualified, 'though, remains to be seen.
Don't miss Part Four - FLASH GORDON!
