Superman’s Epic Fail
Okay, I think it’s time for me to start blogging again about things I find funny or awesome. In this case it’s both!
‘Even Heroes Have Bad Days‘ is a sculpture by Marcus Wittmers and took part in Berlin’s ‘Heroes, Freaks and Superrabbis‘ exhibition last year. The title says it all really. Well, when you’re flying at super speeds from planet to planet it’d only take a small miscalculation for things to go horribly, horribly wrong.
The funniest thing is there are fanboys out there arguing over this. “Superman would knock the planet out of orbit, dude!” “Nah! He’d fly straight through it.” Heh heh, sorry guys, our evidence indicates he does a faceplant into a pavement somewhere. Heh heh.
The real intent of Berlin’s Superhero exhibition was to look at the social and historical context behind Golden Age Superheroes. Did you know that many of the most iconic superheroes, including Superman, Batman and Spiderman, were created by Jewish comic artists? Did you know that comics may have influenced America to join the fight against Nazism in World War II? Food for thought.
