Kyle Baker Satirizes The Climax Of ‘Man Of Steel’ With An Interactive Game [Spoilers]

 

Kyle Baker is a national treasure. You’re probably already familiar with his work as the eight-time Eisner Award-winning cartoonist behind books like The Cowboy Wally Show and DC’s Plastic Man, but the past few years have seen him experimenting with new formats for his work. And now, he’s satirized the climactic battle from Man of Steel with a stylish interactive game.

Be warned, however, that it deals with spoilers for the film — beyond just “Superman fights the bad guy,” I mean. Check it out below!

Here’s how Baker describes it at his website:

DEFENESTRATION GAMES presents MASS MURDER OF STEEL

Enjoy high-flying mass destruction as you ignore the hideous death screams of the millions you are pledged to save! Use your super powers to wage a never-ending battle for self-important allegorical bombast! Bludgeon your senses into numbed awe!

It’s pretty simple to play: You just click on Superman and Zod to send them rocketing around downtown Metropolis, smashing up buildings, school buses, trees, and the occasional unsuspecting citizen. To be honest though, it’s less of a “game” in the traditional sense since there’s no real way to win, but I think that’s intentional. Just like the movie, all that destruction and carnage doesn’t really have a point. I just wish there was a bonus round where you got to smooch Lois as the dust that used to be several million people rained down around you. Video games need a little romance, you know?

Either way, it might be the sickest possible burn from a comics professional since Mark Waid’s review. Play it here!
