    Superman wasn't really being mean to Lois. Lois refused to listen and she got *****y about it and later refused to talk about it.

    It's pretty clear someone is messing with his mind anyways. I don't see the big deal.

    So, i was right, Superman was a waste of time. Screw you JMS, stay away from the marriage you heartless mother ****er :cmad:

    Superman dropped until further notice.

    Looks like Superboy is the only book in the family i have on my list now.

    Yeah it's a completely different writer. It's why it feels completely different, like Superman being a flat out dick as opposed to being a dick to people who deserve it. Or none of the heartwarming moments like Superman burning the stash of drugs, or staying to to stop that girl from jumping, or helping Detroit get revitalized, or even stopping that kid from being abused.

    While JMS wrote Superman a little heavyhanded, at least he did a good job at it. At least you could feel that Superman genuinely trying to connect with the regular people. Roberson on the other hand, feels like he's taking JMS' story but there is just none of the heart nor intelligence within it. It was crap.

    At least Phil Hester is doing a good job doing JMS' story in Wonder Woman.

    Didn't he basically threaten to beat the dad up if he didn't hear from the kid or something? For some reason, that doesn't warm my heart. Besides, as others have said, it seems there's some kind of mind altering stuff going on, which might even explain why Superman turned into such an *******.

    Yeah, but I tend to think that a person who beats their kid up, deserves a bit of an ass kicking.

    Heart warming and intelligent? I found it to be cold, forced, and awkward.

    Am I the only one that read that someone is messing with Superman's mind? So that his actions since Grounded began haven't really been his actions at all.

    So him shouting at Lois isn't a problem at all.

    Moreso, I found it utterly condescending not only to the readers, but even more to the characters he was talking to. Hell, he was practically lecturing to anyone who questioned why he was taking a walk instead of saving lives.

    Supes was acting strangely in the recent issue. That lady at the end had better be influencing him somehow

    Your heart is warmed easier than mine, it seems. [​IMG]

    I know that he's probably working off of JMS's actual outline -- the woman we see screwing with Superman's mind is someone JMS introduced, after all -- but it makes me happier to believe that Roberson took one look at the story thus far and said, "Jesus, this would only make sense if he was mind-controlled. OVERHAUL EVERYTHING."

    Apropos of nothing, here's a review of Grounded that I really enjoyed reading:

    As soon as JMS turned in that drug dealer plot someone should have sat him down, made him watch every episode of The Wire, then thrown him a slap.

    Oh man someone should totally write an issue of Superman where some dip**** comic book writer sits down to write a story wherein a beloved icon of the medium goes around spouting the writer's ******, uninformed opinions and lashing out with violence at anyone the writer doesn't like

    and then

    Superman walks through the door and gives the writer a slap.

    The besat part in the article is how thoroughly it deconstructs JMS' idiotic "What are you doing out there?" tract with Superman being utterly condescending using Thoreau as an example. I recall only having basic knowledge of Thoreau and even I was like "But surely his motivations for doing so were political and controversial?". Everything Supes spouted out in that issue was pure rubbish.

    My only real issue with grounded was how every black person that pop up in the story was either lazy, had no job, sealing drugs, or playing sports talking slang. When that is not he we are at all. Not all black people act like the ones you see on Maury or BET/MTV that is only a small portion of us.
