Canada’s Superman Coins Are Money

supescoinmain

While Superman calls the fictional American cities of Smallville and Metropolis home, half of the Man of Steel's creative team has roots in our neighbor to the north. Honoring Jerry Siegel's Canadian-American collaborator Joe Shuster's origins, the Royal Canadian Mint is forging seven new silver/gold/cupronickel Superman coins ranging in price from around $30-750 CAD (that's roughly $31-775 USD - "more in Canada" indeed, old comics).

Bizarro Back Issues: Superman Against The Class Of 1962! (1962)

ToughTeens01

You know that movie, Class of 1984? If you've never seen it, the basic idea is that a new teacher comes to a crime ridden urban high school and finds that his students are murderous sociopaths, and ends up having to kill them all with a series of deathtraps while the band plays the 1812 overture. If you have seen it, then you probably thought the same thing I did when I was watching it: "This story would be way better if Superman was in it."

Well rest easy, friends, because that exact thing has already happened, in a Jerry Siegel / Al Plastino classic with the truly amazing title, "The Three Tough Teen-Agers!"

Ask Chris #159: The Superman/Batman Movie Will Continue Until Morale Improves

AskChrisNew

Q: If the Superman/Batman movie has to happen, what would you want it to be about? -- @jordannwitt

A: I've gotten this question more than a few times over the past few years, but after the announcement at this year's San Diego Comic-Con that the people behind Man of Steel were actually going through with it after years of teasing the idea (and ComicsAlliance's tendency to send me into the theater whether I want to go or not), it looks like it's an inevitability that we're all going to have to face. I was just having a conversation with Chad Bowers about this the other day, and between the two of us, I think we may have actually figured out how to do something that I'd really like to see.

I mean, don't get me wrong: I'm pretty sure literally everyone else in the entire world would hate it, but, you know, that's how it goes sometimes.

‘How It Should Have Ended’ Debates The ‘Superman/Batman’ Movie [Video]

SupesBats

Like it or not, director Zack Snyder is making a Batman/Superman movie.

Since that movie was announced at Comic-Con International, there have been plenty of rumors and theories about just what the plot will be, especially since news broke that Snyder met with Dark Knight Returns writer/artist Frank Miller about it. One enduring theory is that the movie will be a Batman versus Superman movie. With that in mind, the folks at How it Should Have Ended staged a little debate between Batman and Superman as to how that fight might go down. Check out the video below.

Bizarro Back Issues: The Weirdest Superman/Batman Team-Up Story Ever (1968)

Orr01

Look: I have read a lot of weird old DC comics. It's kind of my thing. But the great thing about them is that no matter how crazy they get, every time I think I've seen the weirdest thing that comics have to offer, they always somehow manage to top themselves. Case in point: a Cary Bates/Ross Andru/Mike Esposito classic from 1968 that has somehow managed to outdo every other comic I have ever read. I realize I say this all the time, but this is, without question, the absolute balls-out craziest comic I have ever read.

Seriously, folks, I'll go ahead and tell you right now that Batman casually mentions owning a time machine in this one, and as far as weird stuff goes, that's not even in the top five.
