Reposting that image from the closed thread...



I was really excited to see Kal-L, obviously...even though this is another bloody Crisis (literally.)

And yet, I smell a rat.

Kal-L appears to be flying. And, he appears to be wearing a sweater! These are not things that Kal-L, herald of all heroes, does! It may be DC's 70th anniversary, but this is unacceptable. Who knitted that thing? Is that what Lois has been doing for the past 20 years?

Maybe this is why Manga outsells comics


Um, manga is comics, I think.  More accurate to say, "this is why Japanese-style manga outsells non-Japanese-style superhero manga made by DC."

The spirit of Detective Chimp is something we have lost.  It is something the world of comics needs.

Darwyn Cooke rocks.

Manga is japanese for comics.

But, let's not get too off topic here.

That's not a sweater, he's just got cuffs on his Superman suit.  And he had those same cuffs back in DC Comics Presents Annual #1, "Crisis on Three Earths."  He probably also had them in "Crisis on Infinite Earths," but I don't have my copy around to consult.

Maybe it's his special "Crisis" outfit?

Yes, he has it there as well, but his super-suit was also in pretty bad shape at the end there.

I'd imagine its a subtle homage to Kirk Alyn who was one of, if not the earliest person to portray Superman in live action. Kirks costume in the movie serials which you can read about on this site had a that kind of effect on the sleeves. Heck the costume itself may have even been wool or something.

We saw in Kingdom that he had the whole E-2 city of Metropolis trapped in there with him, so he must have just gotten an alternate suit from his apartment.

What I want to know is, someone whispered "her" into his ear - to whom was that referring?
