Interesting, I might watch some of it now. Based on seeing the Crisis stuff, I was also sure that I would hate it.

I didn't hate what I saw of Krypton, but that got cancelled pretty quickly. And as happy as I was to see Kara back, it looks like that show is on the chopping block as well. (What the new execs did to the Swamp Thing show is worthy of the Phantom Zone projector.)

I've seen the first 3 episodes and I have to say I like it a lot better than I thought I would. Admittedly, that's easy since I thought I wouldn't like it at all.

My only exposure to Tyler Hoechlin's Superman prior to this was a few Youtube snippets of his appearances on "Supergirl" and the big "Crisis" thing and honestly I wasn't that impressed.  On this new show, he's much more appealing and I've totally embraced his interpretation of Superman/Clark.  After the Snyder films, it's frankly a joy to see Superman played as such a relentlessly optimistic, decent and centered character, and even though I've never been into the whole "Superman as a dad" thing in comics, I have to say it's really working for me, here.  The kids are also far more likable than I expected and at least so far not totally drowning in typical CW teen soap excess.  

If there's a weak spot for me, it's Lois, but I'm working on it.   I'm on the fence about the use of her dad as a "frenemy" to Superman, and I'm giving it time.  The move to Smallville is another change I wasn't sure I'd like, but so far it's working for me, and really there's no reason why Superman needs to live in Metropolis if he can get anywhere on Earth in a second anyway.

The cinematography, special effects and music have been, so far, more on par with a motion picture than a TV show and are certainly miles above anything I remember on the CW's "Flash" show.

Overall, a nice surprise.  Allowing for the fact that no one will ever make a show or movie about "my" Superman, it's a happy compromise to watch a show that changes a lot of the surface details while staying true to the basic character.  For now at least, I'm a fan.

Not a fan of the title, though.  Hard to believe it's the best they could do. Given the focus of the show, I wish they would've given a nod to the Bronze Age and called it "Superman Family."

Hi Telle,

Thanks for the pointer.  I checked the site and went into a panic - you are right, all of the articles are blank!

But it turns out that the articles are still there (in fact, if you log in and "edit" an article, you will see the content come up in the editor).

But previewing the article and viewing the article don't work, so don't try saving any changes just yet.

It turns out that the version of the Wiki package that is running is so old, that an operating system update that took place underneath it broke it.

The only solution is to update the wiki software itself, something I haven't done since 2011.  I don't know what updating such an old wiki will do, but it is the only choice at this point.

Off to adventure!

Hi Rao! Looks like the great Supermanica is no more, once again. Ah well. I don't expect anything to live forever, but just in case you doidn't mean for it to be so (my dearest hope), I  thought I should let you know. Just looking up the parallel universe entry.

Hello!

Superman: The American Way, the Epic Poem of Superman, was originally posted on this site a few years ago.

Author and scholar Michael Mautner currently plans to read all 64 Cantos in installments, over the course of a couple of months.

Here is his reading of the first canto, "The Good Fight":

the original version of the text is still online here.

S!

Ha! Fantastic. Just like the old Marvel cartoons of the 60s. Only better, 'cause it's Swan!

Hope the old gang's riding out this crazy crisis safely in their respective fortresses.
