It has been really great to see you all so involved in our posts. Good to see many enjoying Josh's Philly Comic Con event. You cannot imagine the amount of envy I have for the dude. However, I will make it a point to join him for NY Comic Con! That would be a for sure thing! (Still thinking of who to dress up as)
That aside, as the title states, this will be a post in conjunction with the next Epic Blockbuster hero to hit the movie scene in a few days! The Man of Steel!
New 52 Superman
Superman in front of our Solar System
On the other hand, being animeish does no great service for the other figures that can be seen on Joshua's Comic Con Post. Perhaps it is my own personal opinion, but I have seen the rest of The New 52s by Kotobukiya and none seems to strike me as much as Superman. Sad to say that even Batman wasn't as great a figure by Kotobukiya compared to this one. The only other hero that I might consider is Wonder Woman as her sculpt seems to be interesting as compared to the many other Wonder Woman sculpts that I have seen before.
The Son of Krypton in his Fortress of Solitude
The irony is that while I might be keen on getting her, the illustration of the New 52 Wonder Woman is not to my liking. Back to Mr. Clarke Kent, I really like the new look of his uniform. Doing away with the red undies makes him look much cooler. (Not saying that he can't pull off the classic version of his uniform.) I got to say, he is one of the few heroes who makes wearing the red undies look real slick and cool.
Badass Cape with the Black "S"
Guardian and Protector of Earth
Superman and his box-art.
Kar-El, Son of Jor-El and Lara.
I always like to end of on saying how Iconic this hero/character/machine is for many of my posts. However, I got to add that this one definitely take icon-ism to a whole new level. While there are many great and famous heroes. Superman is undoubtedly the icon and epitome of the Comic Superhero.
While there are many instances where we cannot relate to such an all powerful being like him, there is almost an instant connection to the Son of Krypton in every boy and girl's mind when the word "superhero" is asked to be defined.
The Last Trailer from the Man of Steel
Superman has evolved through the many years of his existence in our society. And while there was a point of time in which people could not associate with Kar-El, it was this dissociation that DC has harnessed to deepen his story and make it more compelling than before. And I guess the Trailers for the Man of Steel has emphasize on this.
How, if you were the last Son of Krypton, in a world not of your own, gifted with such immense powers, fit in to their society? How do you associate with its people? How do you inspire them? On top of these profound questions, how is it with such abilities does one become good? What really motivates the Son of Kar-El?
Tell me about it?
Till the next post, Enjoy Man of Steel. Be you a Marvel or DC Fan, I am sure this is going to be a great one to enjoy for both comic fans and the general populace! For me, It is going to be an epic time as Iw ill be watching it with my Buddies. And it would be a great time as I will be seeing Josh for the first time in two years. (Man... it has been long.)
On a side note, I apologize for not updating much on Modern Military Stuff, its been tough trying to juggle work, studies and doing my hobbies. I will get on it soon!
