Can somebody please save Superman? He seems to be going through a bit of a crisis.
Eighteen months ago, he was a successful reporter for the Daily Planet, he was happily married to Lois Lane and he spent his spare time fighting for truth, justice and the American way.
Now, he’s pashing Wonder Woman, and this week we learnt he has quit his job and is starting up a blog. And by the way, you know we are in trouble when even the Man of Steel doesn’t think he can save print journalism.

As far as comic book characters go, few would argue that Superman is the most well-known.
In fact, if you were to go up to an average Australian in the street and ask if they knew who Superman is, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get a reply along the lines of “He flies”, or “He wears his underwear on the outside,” or “He has a big S on his chest.”
There’s also the old ‘Chuck Norris’ joke: Superman and Chuck Norris once fought for the title of ‘strongest man in the universe’. The loser had to wear their underwear on the outside.
