Almost certainly due to the news that The Daily Planet was long-ago outstripped by The Beat in terms of superhero coverage (suck it, Perry White), Scott Lobdell’s first regular issue of Superman will apparently see Clark Kent quit the company.
The decision comes as part of a slightly coded broadside on the nature of news coverage from Lobdell, whose Clark Kent will decry the fall of news coverage and rise of entertainment coverage. How modern consumers don’t want news that challenges them, but instead wants news that holds their hands. And how news reporting is now about taking the smallest thing and blowing it up onto a huge, exaggerated scale. Hold on, I think I’ve got some pretty images around here somewhere that’ll explain it for you:
Phew! That was almost a complete block of text right there, however would we have coped. So anyway, Clark Kent wants news coverage to be more intelligent and stuff. This news, by the way, was reported by USA two days before the comic comes out. Just thought I’d point that out for no reason. Cat Grant will join Clark as he creates a news website, in an attempt to shine a spotlight where regular news corporations are too scared to go.
Yeah, welcome to the club, lad. Better get to work on your Technorati profile.
