The Siegel Family Will Have Control of Superman in 2013

AC-Cv869_solicit

I have been following this story for the past year, and it appears that some big key decisions have been made regarding the Superman copyright. A Federal judge has decided that the heirs of Jerome Siegel are entitled to a share in the US copyright to the Superman character. This includes the Superman character and costume, the characters of Clark Kent & Lois Lane (including their relationship), and the Daily Planet.

For years Warner Bros. and DC have owed the Siegel family residuals for the Superman franchise. Now Warner Bros. is going to lose the ownership of the Man of Steel in 2013. Another movie or television studio could acquire the rights after that date. If Warner Bros. wants to produce a new Superman film, they need to have it out by 2013.

“I never want to see Supergirl’s panties again!”

Supergirl's Panties

DC Comics editor Matt Idelson has now proclaimed “I never want to see Supergirl’s panties again!” No longer will comic book fans be teased with the thought of what is under her skirt, but now what is under those bicycle shorts. Yes, Matt Idelson is so obsessed with the though of sexualizing Supergirl that he wants her to wear bike shorts.

Lois Lane, I am curious (BLACK)!

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #106

Disclaimer: We are not getting preachy. We found this bit of comic book history to be a bit absurd, so we’d like to share it with you. However, it does deal with a sensitive topic, and may use language that could be found objectionable on a pop-culture web site. This is also an older article I wrote a few years ago. I thought I post it again in the new MPB format. Enjoy!

Browsing through my local comic book store I decided to check out a box of Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane. Flipping through the issues I ran across issue no. 106 entitled I am curious (BLACK)! The cover depicts Lois Lane placed into a machine. Superman flips a switch and Lois magically transforms into a black woman for 24 hours. Realizing that this is the ultimate in cheesy comics I had to pick it up.

Essential Seven Unintentionally Gay Comic Book Covers

comic_header

Older comic book covers embraced the use of absurd and goofy scenarios to sell books. At the time they were very innocent, but looking back in retrospect, a few of these covers have very gay tendencies. You need to have an open (dirty) mind as you look at these, and a good sense of humor. That being said, here are the Essential Seven Unintentionally Gay Comic book covers:
