The last word on Superman...


Art aside, I approve of the message.

.... i really hope that wink is DC telling us, "Don't Worry, we know they will end up together. They ALWAYS end up together...."

No, i don't care what you say, THAT is what I am going to believe. Lois and Clark are meant for eachother, they will ALWAYS find a way back to each other!

Even Morrison believes that (too bad he is doing Young Clark :( )

[personal profile] darkknightjrk 2011-08-03 11:20 pm (UTC)(link)
I think it's fair to say that. I mean, Lois has been Clark's romantic foil from the very beginning (even though when you read those old stories it really feels like Superman's just trying to get with Lois as Clark for the lolz), so yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if they at least start dating at some point in the next few years.

I wonder how Grant Morrison will do "Here's how Clark fell in love with Lois."

Post-reboot, I would frankly be astonished if Lois and Clark didn't eventually end up together at some point; they're probably one of the most well-known romantic pairings in all of fiction.

Frankly, that prospect's what calmed me down after my... less-than-enthusiastic response to the news, shall we say.

I was hoping someone would post this. Thank you.Bittersweet though it was. Did you catch the last trip to Smallville? I think I may have sniffled a little. Farewell, Kents! You didn't sell well enough, but I enjoyed y'all.

I always wait for another Amalgam event where I assume that Clark will cheat on Lois with Gwen Stacey.

God help comics if I were to become an editor. I think I would go nuts for a month just to see if the power of the collective screams of angry and sorrowful fans could be harnessed for evil purposes.

Question: "The American Way." Didn't they recently ditch that so that Clark stood for humanity and not just America? Heck, I thought that he even renounced his American citizenship?

Well, yeah. Did anyone actually believe DCnU Lois and Clark wouldn't be together eventually? Even Lana-centric Smallville eventually wised up and realised that the Superman story has lone ago come to be about Clark and Lois, not just Clark. Just because they've decided to backtrack and take a different road doesn't mean the destination has changed.

On other Superman-related news, has anyone else read about Lawrence Fishburne being cast as Perry White in the upcoming Superman movie? I can't help but think they should have done this in Smallville, just for the Matrix jokes when Clark was wearing his SuperNeo outfit.

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-08-04 01:00 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sure they would. Fiction has given me enough dating "will they/won't they" stories to last a lifetime. But I'm tired of that journey. I want to see what they do when they arrive at the destination.

Yeah, a definite shout out to the inevitability of Clark and Lois being a couple. And also perhaps a nod to "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow" which ends with Lois' husband winking as he closes the door of their house (wherein their infant son has just squeezed a lump of coal into a diamond)

I definitely got a feeling like they were aping Moore's story there. The only problem, of course, is that when a mediocre story borrows from an excellent story, it just serves as a reminder of how much better the mediocre story could have been.

[personal profile] aaron_bourque 2011-08-03 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
And we needed . . . what, 12 issues to tell this story, to get to this point?

So sir we did not.

Re: Nice Message And All But--

[personal profile] an_idol_mind 2011-08-04 12:17 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah...aside from the incredibly dull story and the assholic Superman, Grounded's big problem has been that it is a long meandering trip that just hits on the same themes that have been a part of Superman lore forever. We don't need a huge-ass story to tell us that Lois and Clark are in love. We've been getting that since 1938.

Why are Lois and Clark are a good couple together? Aside from being paired together for years now, what makes them so special to each other? I have an Golden Age Batman story, and it had woman who was Bruce fiance, but it wasn't Vicki Vale or Selina, how come they're not the couple? I think the reboot might help the new generation to know better...

Well, this article, while discussing the new Zach Snyder Superman movie, give one interpretation:

But the answer I like is that Lois is the perfect match for Superman, because she's a Superwoman. She just doesn't have the Kryptonian physiology that gives her superpowers.

But then again, she doesn't need them.

Yes, the previous 73 years of Superman was all a single continuity that was never rebooted or revamped.

It's JMS, right?

I kind of read it as "Oh, no, I know I'm the last writer on this before they split up, but I get enough flack from OMD, do NOT pin this on me, Clark/Lois together 4ever, trufax!"

aaron_bourque: default (Default)

[personal profile] aaron_bourque 2011-08-04 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
It started as JMS, but I'm pretty sure he jumped ship early on, like with Wonder Woman. Still based on his notes, though.
