NECA's Superman vs Muhammad Ali Deluxe Figure Set Review
He's young. He's handsome. He's fast. And he can't possibly be beat. Such was the opponent Superman had to face to save humanity in the classic 1978 DC Comic that pit the "Last Son of Krypton" against the original "People's Champ," aka "The Louisville Lip," aka "The Greatest," aka Muhammad Ali.

Report: Warners Wants Matthew Vaughn for ‘Man of Steel 2’
Report: Warners Wants Matthew Vaughn for ‘Man of Steel 2’
Warner Bros. supposedly has years of DC Comics movies mapped out, but the map keep changing before our eyes. Officially announced titles include this year’s Justice League and Wonder Woman, and next year’s Aquaman and a Shazam movie featuring Dwayne Johnson. But beyond the immediate future, things look more hazy. Will we get a solo film with Ben Affleck’s Batman? What’s the story with The Flash, which has gone through directors faster than its title character could run on his cosmic treadmill. And then there’s the case of Superman. He got a sort-of sequel to Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the Man of Tomorrow was mostly a supporting character in his own movie there. Will Warner Bros. deliver an official Man of Steel 2?

The Truth About The Fake Clark Kent In 'Superman Reborn'
Since the start of DC Rebirth last year, one of the biggest mysteries has revolved around the identity of the mystery Clark Kent that appeared following the death of New 52 Superman and re-emergence of his pre-Flashpoint predecessor. However, in the pages of this week's Action Comics #975 by Dan Jurgens, Doug Mahnke, Jaime Mendoza, Wil Quintana and Rob Leigh, the answer is laid out bare for all to see and while it's someone you'll recognize, it is not someone you'd expect.
Bizarro Back Issues: Who Took The Super Out Of Superman?! (1976)
Bizarro Back Issues: Who Took The Super Out Of Superman?! (1976)
If you've been reading the current Superman titles, then you're no doubt aware that things have gotten pretty weird lately. Superman and Lois Lane are the characters from two reboots ago, and Clark Kent's a completely separate person with a secret so strange that we don't really know who the heck he is yet --- and that's before we throw New Super-Man, Cyborg Superman, and at least two Superboys into the mix. But to be fair, this isn't the first time that there's been a weird split between "Clark Kent" and "Superman," and while it might be the weirdest, it has some pretty stiff competition on that front, too. Like, say, the time that Superman had powers and Clark didn't, even though they were the same guy, based entirely on which set of clothes they were wearing.
