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 anything remotely like me, you may enjoy reading about the mighty MAN Of TOMORROW's silver screen adventures from these pulsating 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 superhero to look up to, it needs one now - and ol' Supes is surely 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!
