That’s not supposed to be Miracleman, no siree.
Tits, I was beginning to think they’d sneaked out a Miracleman followup without me noticing.
Considering how clean he keeps the rest of that place you’d think he might have at least tried to clean his hands. Shake them at superspeed or something at least.
See its like…um…uh…nope, nevermind. You’ve said eveything that can be said about the book.
I’m not a big enough nerd to know what book that is. I bet I’d read it if it had THAT title though. What is it?
Ah! I did hear about it, but hadn’t seen it yet. I’m one of those people who THE HELL I’M GONNA PAY THAT MUCH FOR A COMIC!
Sigh. But I have all 12 issues of Squadron Supreme from the 80’s.
Well this is the truth abotut he comic. And is true that this particular them had be done to nauseam. Hell right now we have both Ireedimable and the Mighty tht at same time face the fuckign same base plot(a superman gone or going bad)!
We’re never gonna get an Empire sequel, are we? 🙁
Just read the first two. I see now that women are the source of all evil.
So the moral of the story is that being from Canada would turn Superman evil?
That is an evil maple leaf insignia on his chest, isn’t it?
Y’know how I know he’s evil? He’s sitting on what appears to be a big, uncomfortable chair. And as far as I know, all evil beings hate comfort.
“Just read the first two. I see now that women are the source of all evil.”
Nah, part three implies that he just got fed with assholes expecting him to fix all there problems and bitching if he didn’t. Although it does have a creepy bit related to the Lois Land stand-in.
Wait, this comic is drawn by Nate Fisher?
Why are evil supermen always frowning? Couldn’t we get an evil superman sitting on a throne covered in blood with a slightly whimsical expression for once?
How’d he get in the chair without dripping anywhere else? Lo, he is a super man indeed.
Wasn’t that very question kind of the question Invincible’s dad answered?
Follow-up book – What if Deadpool had Sylar’s power to absorb the powers of everyone he killed?
Zenrage: Deadpool would find out he had this power, comment on how Sylar is a pussy, and start killing stand-up comedians in order to become the biggest smartass in the universe.
His lack of a gigantic vaguely Papal crown with the Evil Maple Leaf on the front disappoints me immensely.
“We’re never gonna get an Empire sequel, are we?”
Man I hope not. That book was pretty terrible and pointless. There might be a good “super-villains win” story out there but I can’t think of one…
[…] [Snark] Honesty in comic-book covers Link: Christopher Bird […]
Eh, leave Waid alone. Apparently, every ten years or so, he gets fed up with writing Silver Age pastiches and has to blow off some steam with something like this. I figure that’s where Empire came from.
This is what this comic’s about? Oh man, now I’m totally buying it!
Ah, many apologies, I didn’t read the third one. Tubes are slow today.
Zenrage: Better follow up book – Basically this but staring Betty Cooper. Scary shit.
So is it any good as a ‘Superman but totally evil’ story?
How dare you criticize the author of the superb “Hey, Guys, What If Superman Got Really Sad In The Future And Everybody Had To Be Saved By The Spectre And Some Old Guy?”
Are you crazy? That’d just get drops everywhere. It’d be like an Irish Setter shaking itself off in a nice, clean kitchen after wading around in an abattoir.
Besides, how do we know that this guy isn’t just enjoying the relaxing sensation of his hands soaking in blood? He is super-evil, so the Bathory method of moisturizing might make sense.
The best hero turns bad and takes over the world is still the evil Iron Man from Exiles where he’s shown on the cover wearing Dr Doom’s cloak.
not bad, i like it, but eh…i like all sorts of random crap
Good book, but if you’re a Kremlinologist, it’ll drive you nuts.
