013 #blogjune - it's not easy to be me

'Superman' had nothing to do with the superhero or physical power. It's a reference to the book 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra,' by Friedrich Nietzsche, who wrote about the evolution of consciousness to reach a higher superman state.

12th June, 2019 was... Superman Day.

Song of the day by "Five For Fighting" -
"I'm more than a bird, I'm more than a plane.
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train.

And it's not easy to be me"



Superman was first created in 1933 by Joe Shuster (writer) and Jerry Siegel (artist) His first appearance was in Action Comics #1. A famous cover that has been re-created many times over the years. One of the many images that I collect in the plethora of digital folders on my PC. I have always liked Superman, growing up with Christopher Reeve as the man of steel of my generation. Back in 1983, I had a HUGE poster of the 1978 film on my bedroom wall. The poster even made it to New Zealand with me, surviving over 35 years of wall hanging.
Now isn't THAT "SUPER"!


In my book collection there are a few books about Clark Kent's alter-ego, including some of my old dutch comics and the ones I bought when I first arrived to NZ in 1992. The time when the man of steel was killed by Doomsday. I even have some Superman figurines and proudly wear a T-shirt with the S-symbol!


Haven't really been that excited about the latest Superman movies. All though, none of them were as bad as "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)". Just a reminder that, not EVERYTHING in the 80s was great! The newer Supergirl TV series I haven't been following much either. I did used to really like the old 90's "Lois and Clark" series, with Dean Cain. Will they be able to make a new better Superman movie that does justice to the character and will replace the bad taste of the Justice League film?
 There IS a new Supergirl movie on the horizon, that will reboot the Kryptonian mythos, thereby allowing for a new version of Superman to appear down the line. Not only that, but I’ve also read that Warner Bros is developing a actual new Superman film.  Good old Supes, closing in on being 90 years old, yet still super-active!
