I’m surprised this isn’t a real thing. John “Houzer” Smith put together a pretty cool poster for Man of Steel done in the style of the original posters for Richard Donner’s Superman. This definitely looks better than the legit posters from Warner Bros.

Summer is here and the the sun is blistering. It looks like it’s beach season. If you’re looking for the right swimsuit that satisfies your geek and fashion needs, why not give ROMWE’s line of DC Comic bikinis some consideration. As cool as these bikinis are, I have a sneaking suspicion that these bikinis are not legit and not approved by DC Comics. I only say that because the bikini with Batman and Superman on the bikini top is listed as “Super Man & Spider-Man“. Yeeaaah.

Where to buy: ROMWE

As a “child of the 80’s”, artist¬†Billy Butcher took inspiration from the new wave era he grew up with and merged them the iconic heroes of DC Comics.

What makes a pop culture icon?
Would it be the effect of their contribution to a cultural movement? Is it the way they impact the time and the generation they are targeting? Or just how their exposure constitutes a defining characteristic of a given society or era?
As a child of the 80’s I was heavily influenced by everything from saturday morning cartoons on TV to the music coming from the radio. Ian Curtis or Johnny Rotten are as iconic to me as Superman or Batman. Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics – all of those influences affect us to the point of defining our character and personality, career paths and life choices.
The references we are exposed and specifically the ones we choose to absorb make us who we are. Who are your heroes?

It’s kind of weird, but Billy Idol makes one helluva Aquaman.

We can agree that Hans Zimmer’s score for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is truly epic, but how does it stack up against the originator, John Mutha-effin’ Williams? Well, I’ll tell you. Both are epic and both gave me chills down my spine. You might need to change your panties after seeing the John Williams’ version though…

Hit the jump and compare!

The trailer for the highly anticipated Man of Steel just dropped and I have to say that I had chills. I had the same sensation while watching the teaser and I have to say that I love what I see. Director, Zack Snyder and producer, Christopher Nolan is taking Superman beyond the costume and special effects and making him more of a mythic character. I know that people have been questioning Snyder’s ability in the director seat after his latest flops, but it looks like Christopher Nolan has been a positive mentor to him. 2013 is beginning to look VERY exciting.

Man of Steel drops on June 14, 2013. Hit the jump and check out the trailer!

God bless Taiwan’s NMA. How else would I follow current events? The local news?! Heck no! Local news cannot produce these Pixar quality animation to bring the news to life. NMA is THE source for ground breaking news around the world and when they break that ground, I’m listening (and watching). Their newest report is based on news out of DC Comics that Clark Kent AKA Superman AKA The Corn Cobbler will be quitting his day job as a reporter at the Daily Planet. Based on the report, he will be getting fat with Wonder Woman smoking a bong and drinking a 10 gallon cup of coffee at Starbucks while wearing a scarf he may have bought at Urban Outfitters. Also, apparently it’s raining iPads somewhere around the world and Superman dropped the curl for a hat (or haircut) that makes him look like a penis. This report is worthy of all the awards out in the world of news making stuff.

Hit the jump and check out NMA’s newest report. Prepare to have your ass blown off.

superbestfriend

Superman pretty much spends 24/7 of his time trying to save the world from random threats. He’s a really busy guy. Even though he’s busy being a superhero and a reporter on the side, he still takes the time to fly over to the Fortress of Solitude to take care of his dog, Krypto. This is beautifully illustrated by Brett Underhill who wrote and animated an 2D animation short titled, “Superman’s Best Friend”. After watching this, you won’t believe the kind of shit that Supes has to deal with during his free time. You also won’t believe what you were watching for over four minutes straight. Shit. Literally. At least you know that Superman is a responsible pet owner and that Krypto has a healthy colon.
