Fuzzy Underpants

Fun fact about your favorite person with a blog named after a marketing slogan for an Elseworlds that came out ten years ago (that's me), the only Superman/non-dc property crossover i don't own is DC Comics Presents number 47. Wherein He-Man shows up in all his page boy haircut, fuzzy underpanted, ugg boot and S&M harness wearing glory. Mattel and Toys R Us are about to fix that. I give you the best news I'll hear all day:

Mattel is releasing a two pack of action figures encouraging you to make He-Man and Superman punch on each other. The best part? It comes with a reprint of DCP 47. Awesome. Awesome.

News and images of the toys here.

Quite possibly my favorite page ever

From Superman/Batman 51.

Marcio Takara

Takara is the artist of Boom's Incredibles, and he is amazing. You can see more of his work on his website and DeviantArt page. He is available for commissions.

Remember kids, always recycle. TO THE EXTREME!

I should never be allowed to breed.

Me: I want a comic where The Eradicator, Artemis, and Azrael form an XTREME! version of the Trinity.
Haleytron: Haha!
Me: They can have a crossover with USAgent, War Machine, and Thunderstrike.
Haleytron: This is the best idea ever.


Haley's got a tumblr. Nag him to update it frequently, because it's entertaining as hell.

Nolan and Superman

Nolan on Superman

So Chris Nolan's a consultant of some kind on a Superman reboot. The Dark Knight was awesome. Good news is, it's a reboot. Further good news is, with Nolan's success on Batman, the WB will probably bend over backwards to accommodate the film. Bad news is, well, there's not any, I don't think. You know what sells me on Nolan's involvement in a Superman film? The action in TDK night was fun, the Joker was great, and that scene when the prisoner has the choice to destroy other to save himself all tell me he doesn't just know Batman, he knows how a superhero movie should work.

Super shill

Superman hocks his celebrity shamelessly.

I miss letter columns so much

An actual letter printed in Action Comics 271. This dude's from my home town! I want to track him down and tell him he's awesome.

Daily like the Planet

So I'm going to start THE GRAND EXPERIMENT. SIB is going daily. At least a quickie post every day, with the return of the lengthier more in depth stuff because you people love those things.

Don't get too excited, because if you've not been reading for a while, you'll recall that SIB is comprised of thoughts like:

Every time i try to hate everything about Smallville, I remember their version of Lois Lane is this damned hot, and that I am very, very shallow.

And then i remember the show is called Smallville and wonder why it even has a Lois Lane.

this is stupid

Superman has a Green Lantern ring, but feels really down lately about that whole 20 years his comics were pretty boring, and Galactus has Mjolnir, but is having a 'fat' day. Discuss.
