Finally, they can pair him with Nightwing for DC's new series, Holy Crap Nobody's Reading This!

Poor suckers. The current Superboy run has been pretty horrible, but with Justin Jordan taking over soon it has a chance of improving.

They don't mention Joe Shuster....could be all that bondage porn he did using Superman, Lois Lane, and Luthor after he got royally screwed over.

Do those lines represent impact from spanking, or did that lady just rip a fart? And, does that read "Slaves of Geraldo" in the upper left-hand corner? Really need to get my eyes checked.

That Cracked article is awesome.  Looks as if Archie comics artist Don DeCarlo did it as well, and he used Betty and Veronica likenesses in his.

So who is Superboy now?  Young Kal-El?  Kon-El, the clone of Superman and Lex Luthor?

This guy has been retconned more times than Hawkman!

Impossible. Some of Hawkman's retcons were retconned within the retcon.

/Nu52 Hawkman was...shiat.

The new Hawkman showed up in New52 Green Arrow, which I read.  But then when Arrow's story finished it said one their typical "To continue this story, pick up Hawkman #blah blah blah!"

Ain't nobody got time fo dat!

I don't mind crossovers, as long as their handled well.

It's too bad that most aren't.

The son of Superman and Lois Lane from some possible future, with some other DNA mixed in for good measure.

If I recall, Jason Todd woke up in a coffin. Therefore, he was brought back from the dead and had to claw out of his own coffin.

And trust me, I'm really confused even after the supposed "reboot" of the entire DC continuity. How can they mess up a restart and make it confusing.

GOOD. Jerry's long dead, his wife died a while back, and the daughter-- who wasn't even conceived yet when Jerry sold the rights to Superman-- has been insisting she deserves something for winning the genetic lottery.

Screw her. She didn't create anything. She didn't even inspire anything. Her pop sold Superman's rights a couple times over, and all she and her mother were doing was golddigging.

And she's not poor. Superman made her a wealthy child and a wealthy adult. Don't weep for her, and when she appeals to the comic community and tries to paint this as her grand David & Golliath struggle against a soulless corporation (which she has done a few times) try to remember that she has drunk from this well without contributing anything to Superman or Superboy... Aside from lawyers' fees, that is.

Yup, brought back from the dead, which is why Todd's been such a fun, happy lad since coming back.

I have to say that was one of the less dopey aspects of Superboy Prime's little tantrums.

I'd highly recommend checking out this book. You can say Jerry and Joel got screwed, but honestly, nobody in that scenario is above reproach.

I hereby copyright Han Solo as a child [waits for money].

Seriously, how does 'as a child' or 'as a young man' constitute a different character for a different copyright?!?

I know that in many instances 'Superboy' was not a younger Kal-El, but Seigel's pitch was just a younger Superman, wasn't it?

Why do these dumbsh*ts keep selling the rights back to DC? We all know that they'll be suing each other again in about twenty years from now.

I'd say get back the Supes rights, and then sell it to Marvel/Disney. TOTALLY coQpunch DC in a payback way for what they did to Siegel & Shuster all those decades.

Meh - if Warners and the Mouse are going to fight to keep characters under copyright for 70, 80, 90 years then fark em. They should keep on paying the descendants of the people who actually created the characters.

I'd prefer that wasn't the case and that characters became public domain after, say, 50 years, but while Disney has all those lawyers, that ain't happening.

Gerard Christopher won the audition for Clark Kent/Superman in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, whose producers were somehow unaware the guy had just played Superboy for 3 seasons in syndication. He was let go when they figured it out (somehow being so perfect for a job that he could get it twice disqualified him) and the role went to Dean Cain.

Figure out the Batman TV series so it can be released on DVD already.

I have DVDRs of the broadcasts on MeTV, but I really don't like the MeTV watermark on the screen at all times. It's the best DVDRs of the show yet, since it's a digital broadcast. But it could be so much better.
