Don't expect to see the Daily Planet getting as many scoops on what Superman is doing these days, because - stop the presses - Clark Kent... quit!
The newest issue of the rebooted Superman series from DC Comics is coming out with a bang. Issue #13, which is due out on Wednesday, has Clark Kent pulling a Jerry Maguire-type move and quitting in front of the entire newsroom.
USA Today did an interview with new Superman writer, Scott Lobdell, who said Superman is going through a lot of changes in the reboot. Kent and long-time love Lois Lane are no longer married and there is a new threat coming from his home planet of Krypton, Lobdell revealed.
"I wasn't going to test the waters. I was just going to do a cannonball in the Super-verse," Lobdell told USA Today. "This is really what happens when a 27-year-old guy is behind a desk and he has to take instruction from a larger conglomerate with concerns that aren't really his own."
In the latest issue, Clark Kent quits in front of the whole staff and "rails on how journalism has given way to entertainment" — in a not-so-mild-mannered fashion.
Lobdell's favorite part?
When Clark calls for his peers to stand up for truth, justice "and yeah — I'm not ashamed to say it — the American way," a nod to the Man of Steel's history, he told USA Today.
Kent has been working at the Metropolis newspaper since the DC Comics superhero's earliest days in 1940.
DC's "The New 52" relaunch a year ago is changing a good bit of what we have traditionally known about the DC Superheroes.
Earlier this year, as a part of "The New 52," DC Comics had Alan Scott, the first man to wield the Green Lantern's green power ring in 1940, welcomed home with a kiss from his boyfriend, rebooting the superhero as a gay man.
