Re: Superman Secret Origin reviews
Not a fan of how they handled Rudy Jones/Parasite.
The gluttony part is just too cliche.
It would have been much better if he had just been a dumb thug who's insatiable need to consume didn't hit him until after the change. I've always envisioned the character as someone's 'hit-man' - large and a bruiser. When he's 'altered', he doesn't know what's going on within him but that there is a gnawing hunger that's taking him over. He starts by accidentally draining bugs, then animals, then a human (probably a bum). It makes him emotionally sick at first but then starts to embrace it when encounters people with great health. From there he encounters Superman and his obsession begins.
