Issue 13 of Superman contains the startling resignation of ace reporter Clark Kent, who has worked for the paper for 72 years! The issue, which goes on sale Wednesday, also contains a “disturbing” text message involving Clark’s ex Lois Lane and her new boyfriend.
“I wasn’t going to test the waters. I was just going to do a cannonball in the Super-verse,” new Superman writer Scott Lobdell, who began his run last month with a special zero issue, told USA Today.
I was having a bit of a DVD marathon today, re-watching the Harry Potter films in advance of seeing part 2 of Deathly Hallows next week. It occurred to me, while watching the films, that you could have slipped any number of lines from other films into the dialogue with nobody much noticing the difference. For example:
At E3 last week, the new Tomb Raider reboot was showcased. I must say I was a little disappointed. Not with the graphics, which look wonderful, nor the gameplay, which looks engaging, but just with Lara Croft. See, Lara represents something, and I’m not just talking about tits.
I’ve never played a Tomb Raider game through, but she’s practically as iconic as Sonic the Hedgehog – a cross between Indiana Jones and James Bond. She’s intelligent, beautiful, filthy rich and almost invulnerable, which is why little girls want to be her. Women who don’t ordinarily play video games play Tomb Raider because it’s pure escapist fantasy.
