A couple of days prior IGN.com distributed an article in which they reported that DC Comics at long last uncovered who is quicker – Superman or The Flash.
The entire “Superman versus The Flash” idea has been around for a considerable length of time, with the two superheroes hustling against each other in comic books, kid’s shows, and even the ongoing “Equity League” motion picture. Continue reading

Superman: Special Reports
Had the Superboy character – that of the young Superman vis a vis Conner Kent – had a pre-Superman career in the John Byrne revised Superman universe of “Man of Steel”, he might have been much like Superboy-Prime, the kid of steel who’s allied himself with Alexander Luthor in “Infinite Crisis”.
Superboy-Prime didn’t make the journey from Krypton to Earth in a rocket. Jor-El of Krypton-Prime teleported the baby to Earth moments before Krypton’s destruction.
The Science Council of Krypton-Prime believed Jor-El that Krypton was doomed. However, where Jor-El insisted on action, the Council insisted that committees be formed and that feasibility studies be performed. Bureaucracy – not disbelief – doomed Krypton-Prime.
Baby Kal-El wasn’t the only survivor of Krypton-Prime. Shortly before teleporting baby Kal-El, Jor-El tested the teleporter by sending a Kryptonian animal called a grundoon to Earth.
As Krypton-Prime began to die, Jor-El teleported baby Kal-El and planned to send Lara next and finally himself.
Immediately after Jor-El dispatches their infant son, Councilor Durkin of the Science Council bursts into Jor-El’s chambers and leaps into the teleporter. To date, it’s not known if Councilor Durkin actually made it to Earth. What is known is that his interruption prevented Jor-El and Lara from following their son to Earth before Krypton-Prime died.
Forget Smallville. Forget Kansas. While hiking in the woods in New England, Naomi Clarke Kent and Jerome Thornton Kent find what they assume is simply an abandoned child. There’s no rocket and the child is seemingly normal so these Kents have no reason to suspect this is anything but a poor abandoned human baby.
These Kents weren’t farmers. Naomi was a lawyer and husband Jerry was in computers. They were the modern super-family of the yuppified 1980’s and in fact Jerry’s career appeared to lend itself toward his being the more present parent in the young child’s life particularly after Naomi returned to practicing law.

The latest rumor concerning “Man of Steel 2” comes from Revenge of the Fans Editor-in-Chief Mario-Francisco Robles who states that Warner Bros. is supposedly targeting a 2020 release for the highly anticipated film.
Even though there is currently no director or script attached to the project, Robles revealed the latest update via the latest episode of El Fanboy Podcast suggesting that the studio is in the process of moving full-speed ahead on the direct sequel to the 2013 film.
As with all prior rumors concerning the film, this latest news should be taken with a grain of salt as it is not being reported direct from the studio or an official source and Robles himself has even stressed that, for now, it is strictly a rumor.
That being said, reports have stated that Matthew Vaughn has previously been in talks to direct “Man of Steel 2” and Superman himself, Henry Cavill has been teasing a return to the role in quite a few recent interviews. However, this still doesn’t guarantee a theatrical return of the Man of Steel in 2020.
Currently, Warner Bros. has three films lined up for release in the new future; James Wan’s “Aquaman” on December 21st, David Sandberg’s “Shazam!” in 2019, and Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 2” on November 1st, 2019.
