DC Comics Continues to Kill Superman Fans Slowly and Painfully

You thought the run in Action Comics staring Flame Bird and Nightwing was a boring Superman story, as the band Bachman–Turner Overdrive said, "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet."

DC Comics announced yesterday that rather than traveling the galaxy defending the universe from dark forces, Superman may soon arrive in your hometown in a very pedestrian way.
As part of the Grounded story line that kicks off in July with issue No. 700 of DC Comics' Superman series, the Man of Steel will walk across the USA to reconnect with the everyday people he is committed to protecting.

The story may be fictional, but many of the places and people that Superman will visit are real. DC Comics is asking readers to write in and campaign for their towns and residents to be depicted in the 13-issue Superman series.

Great idea because no one wants to see Superman taking on Darkseid, Lex Luthor, Mongul, Brainiac, Intergang, etc.  

Why do you continue to F*%ck the DC Universe up Dan Didio? Why?

  1. I can see why politicians would and probably should do something like this, but superheroes? In real life, if someone where in Superman's position, connecting to "ordinary people" would be a good idea...but done for more than one or two issues, will make for boring storytelling.
