BUT HERE WE ARE.
Honestly, I just get tired of reading the negativity on the internet. The click-bait headlines, the articles that just make up stuff that is nothing but conjecture...it's all ridiculous. At least be honest about what you are doing.
This is a blog. My blog. So it's nothing BUT my opinion. It's not disguised as news. You will not see articles like this:
GAL GADOT FIRED AS WONDER WOMAN
Fans on Twitter said it. Who knows, we will wait and see.
That's the gist of 90% of articles about pop-culture stuff. It's excruciating to read. So, as I attempt to exile myself from that garbage (for the 372nd time), I am coming back here to irritate all zero of you who read this.
The title says Superman, so let's roll.
Superman and Lois are two episodes in on the CW and I recommend it wholeheartedly. As a fan of all the live action Supermen (Shaq as Steel does NOT count), Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman absolutely embodies the spirit of the character. Like his predecessors, he has a rough road ahead in a world where Superman can be viewed as "too powerful", "hard to write because he is so good", or "he got stabbed in the butt by Kevin Spacey".
Spacey probably ad-libbed that.
Anywho, we live in a world where Superman is needed more than ever. Our country is more divided than ever, people actually hate each other if you do not agree with their politics (on either side of the aisle), and there are still no Waffle Houses in Iowa. If that doesn't describe a "hell in a handbasket" environment to you, then you are no son of mine.
Superman is a hero who is supposed to be better than we are. It's someone we can strive to be more like. He is not without sin, he makes mistakes, but how many of us can truly say we try to do the right thing all the time? Not me. That's why I like Superman. It reminds me to try and be better. It doesn't guilt me into hating him and then saying how great The Punisher is because it's easier on my crappy moral code...no. Superman is supposed to inspire. He is supposed to set the example. In two episodes of CW's Superman and Lois, he has done that so far.
See you in 2023!
