Posted by Midtown Comics in: Blog | Comments Off on Batman v Superman: 4 Reasons to Root For The Man Of Steel

Batman v Superman

The wait to see director Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman is almost over, and now Warner Bros. and DC are asking us fans one big question: Who will win? Will Batman’s brilliant mind and technology make Superman learn what it means to be a man? Or will Superman’s sheer might stop the Dark Knight from humbling him? Or maybe Wonder Woman will knock some sense into both of them?! We won’t find out until the blockbuster DC movie opens on March 25th, but for now, we want to have some fun picking a side! This time, we’re going to support Big Blue! Kal-El/Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman, totally has what it takes to take the Dark Knight down a peg, and we have four quick and simple reasons why.

George Reeves as Superman: Five Favorite Episodes, & Five Fun Facts

By Gerry Gladston

With a cheerful smile and a wink, George Reeves’ Superman won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide in the 1950s and well beyond.  Reeves’ Superman exuded friendly confidence, compassion, humor, and an air of almost paternal authority.  Everyone in the room always knew where they stood with Superman, and the authorities never questioned him. Gangsters feared him, but he was a super-gentleman to everyone else, especially Lois Lane.  The playful, romantic tension between Lois and Superman was a big part of the fun factor!

His role as the Man of Steel ran from 1951 through 1958, but Reeves’ endearing portrayal resonated with fans for decades to come.  To this day, for many, George Reeves has always been, and will always be…SUPERMAN!

If you thought you were going to get out of 2015 without a top 10 list from Midtown Comics, then you were sorely mistaken. In conjunction with Action Figure Junkies (AFJ), the leading action figure spot on social media, we have racked our brains for the better part of December knowing that the day would come where we would have to whittle our very large list down to a paltry 10 entries. Prepare yourselves, because a whole lot of factors were taken into account before being picked at, edited, polished and finally cleaned up.
