Celebrate Superman Month with a Historical Timeline! Part 2 – 1970s to 2010s

You know you love nerdy lists and timelines, people!

For those just joining us, June is often considered Superman month. The hero debuted in the 1938 June issue Action Comics #1. The real town of Metropolis, Illinois officially became "Superman's hometown" in June. And in some comics, the hero celebrates his birthday one June 1o (the day he landed on Earth) and Clark Kent's birthday on June 18 (the day he was adopted by the Kents and also the birthday of Bud Collyer, the first Superman actor).

Celebrate Superman Month with a Historical Timeline! Part 1 – 1930s to 1960s

Because nerdy lists and timelines are part of what makes fandom fantastic!

June is a lot of things for different folks. For some, it's Superman month! It was in the June 1938 debut issue of Action Comics that the Man of Tomorrow first appeared. Some Silver Age comic books even say Superman celebrates his birthday on June 10 (the day he landed on Earth), while Clark Kent celebrates his birthday on June 18 (the day the Kents legally adopted him). With that in mind, how about a timeline of his amazing history?

Amy Adams Promises: No Super/Wondy/Lane Love Triangle, and Other Script Details From Batman v Superman

"And then I said 'There's the door, spaceman.'" "Classic!"

It's a rough life, hoping for a greater presence for female characters in superhero movies. So it's not particularly surprising that folks can find potential sooty interiors to any silver lining, namely, that now that Superman and Wonder Woman are an item in comics, it might mean that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will release with a healthy helping of that tired trope of female competition over a man.

Reimagining the Female Superhero: Gail Simone, Amy Reeder, Marguerite Bennett, & More Discuss Comics At Special Edition: NYC


Saturday I attended a panel at Special Edition: NYC, and from what I gathered it was one of the only panels that day that was even nearing maximum capacity. The Carol Corps, various members of the Young Avengers team, and plenty more in addition to myself waited patiently in the ever-growing line for this event. It was pretty much the only reason I went to the convention that day. It seems that many others had the same idea.

Wondy the Riveter, and The Rest of DC Comics’ Gorgeous Bombshell Variant Covers

Great Hera!

DC Comics has released all of its variant covers for June, on the theme of nineteen-fifties style bombshell posters featuring its major female characters, from Arisia to Zatanna and Mera and Lois Lane in between. The drawings and designs are lovely, and some are even already being pushed to posters, prints, and statues. Still, I agree with DCWKA when I say: why couldn't we get some dude bombshells? Where's Nightwing? Where's Lobo? Where's the Martian Manhunter and his barely-there costume?

Amy Adams Comments On Fan Reactions To New Wonder Woman’s Body

million dollar lady

Amy Adams was caught off-guard the last time she was asked about our new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot.  Seems like she might have been this time as well, but damned if she doesn't pull our great answers anyway.

Amy Adams Politely Says No Thanks To a Man of Steel 2 Love Triangle

Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

"Am I interested [in a Lois-Superman-Wonder Woman love triangle]? I don’t know. I mean, we’ll see. I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we’re not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries."—A few days ago Amy Adams was taken a bit aback by a question about Wonder Woman, since she didn't even know the superheroine would be in Man of Steel 2 until the interviewer asked her about it. But turn the subject to a Wonder Woman-Lois-Superman love triangle, and boy, she knows what she wants to say. Props to Adams, because if I were in her shoes I would've given the same negative answer, but there probably would have have been some cursing. Clearly she's classier than I.
