Duh Aficionado Magazine: Clark Kent Quits Daily Bugle To Become A Blogger

Oh gross! Don’t do it, Clark! Admittedly, you are already wearing your pajamas under your clothes so it is not a bad fit. (Good call back to jokes about bloggers from 2005!) The kids are just going to gobble this up. Comic books somehow cost almost 5$ a piece and are only 12 pages long? Well, normally for Generation Free that would be unacceptable, but Clark Kent is a blogger now! Reprezent! (I know how kids talk.) This is my favorite part of the explanation behind the shift, from the writer currently in charge of the Superman series:

“Superman is arguably the most powerful person on the planet, but how long can he sit at his desk with someone breathing down his neck and treating him like the least important person in the world?”

Well, I thought that was kind of the point: to separate his alter-ego as much as possible from his superhero self so that no one would suspect anything. Now that he is a powerful and autonomous blogger, everyone is going to know that he is Superman. People are going to put two and two together so fast. “Did you read his post about how Courtney Stodden isn’t allowed to spend the night in the Couples Therapy mansion because of California child labour laws? I always thought something was up with that guy. It’s gotta be Superman! He’s so cool and independent with NOBODY telling him what to do.” Very dope change. Love this change. It’s a bird, it’s a razor scooter, it’s Superman.Tumblr.Com! (Via IHeartChaos.)
