The end of Superman

It’s my sad duty to inform you that, after fighting crime since FDR, Superman has hung up his cape for good. He was forced into early retirement, not by Lex Luther, but by the cellphone. With more and more cellphones, there were fewer and fewer telephone booths for Clark Kent to duck into.

From here on out, you and I will have to fend off the criminal element, from muggers to megalomaniacs, without the man of steel by our side. Prepare for the worst!


  1. Finally, I can wear a cape and tights in public and draw praise instead of consternation!

  2. Whew for a minute there I thought you were talking about a real hero like Batman not the big blue boyscout. (Not to be confused with "The Big Red Cheese")

    Thanks for the heads up.

  3. not by Lex Luther

    By Martin Luther then? :-)
