Commentary on Pop Culture, and maybe creating some of my own.

I'd be for it...




That's Mark Waid, Superman's biggest fan.

I'd take this even further:

You know what would have been something? If they were being really ballsy, when DC did the new 52, they would have made the Kents immigrants from Iran or Lebanon, make Kent short for something quite long. I think Clark could pass as a Lebanese immigrant with his black hair so it wouldn't really affect how he looked but in a snap it would affect how people viewed him. Does the world's greatest hero really need to be a WASP? He can still stand for Truth, Justice, and the American Way while being a practicing Muslim. If anything it would represent the best of America, the melting pot, where anyone regardless of your race, background, or creed can be anything.

Plus, it would make the awful supervillain, Captain Combover, take to his twitter while sitting on his golden toilet at 3am. And anything that makes Captain Combover's head expode is a good thing.

On another note. Yes, I saw Dr. Strange. Yes, I liked it. But I've been less compelled to blog as of late. What's going on in our country and the world stage has me a little bit more concerned.

Yes...

Yes, I know.

I'm looking forward to it immensely.
