Superman's Gots the Troubles

This is a silly comic that I started it at D&D last night.

I love Superman. And I'm actually pretty excited for this new movie, though I think the costume is kind of needlessly complicated. But hey! Good storytelling can cover a multitude of sins.

Ben, just curious, why would you say his costume is complicated?

It's not simple.

It's just got all that texture over every surface.

And a lot of clearly sculpted-painted muscle.

But I'm sure it'll look fine, and like I said, STORY is king. He could be wearing a spray painted potato sack if it's a great story.

Yeah, the trend in these movies is to put sooo much detail into the costumes. The previous Superman movie was the same way. Guess it's the keep the cosplayers on their toes.

The "S" stands for, "s'hope." Like you're saying "It's hope" when you're drunk and slurry.

Fun Superman fact: Kryptonians talk slurry because everyone is always drunk on Krypton. That's why Russell Crowe lives there. It's also why it blew up; the Kryptonians were always drunk driving their planet.

"S'hope!"

Ryan, will you be my life coach?

Ben Hatke said...

Ohhh.. ! I should have had Superman say "It means hope."

And lois could reply "SOAP? So you think you're the guy who's gonna CLEAN UP Metropolis?"

And then Lois starts laughing.

And then Clark just takes off his costume and says he's going to just wear regular clothes to save people if that's how everyone's going to be about it.

I like how Supes is really thin-skinned and insecure in your "gritty reboot" of the franchise, Ben.

You and I should collaborate on a new Superman script where, instead of having Superman fight a giant spider in the climax like most screenwriters have him, we'll have him fight deep-seated feelings of insecurity. The underlying message of our movie will be that it takes a "Man of Steel" to get in touch with your emotions.

Ben Hatke said...

I don't know, Ryan, I was awfully pleased with your "gritty reboot" where the "S" stands for "Smother Man."

Ry said...

We could make a movie that has both. The movie would open with Supes sitting alone in his room trying to "smother" his feelings of inadequacy. At first the audience feels bad for the guy, but then they suddenly realize that the way he "smothers" his inferiority complex is just a symbol of the way he also, on a deeper level, "smothers" people.

There could be a variety of ways in which he "smothers" people. For instance, sometimes he "smothers" them with his emotional clinginess. But usually he "smothers" them with his hands or a pillow.

Ryan, you're a genius, you know.
