Headline: Daily Planet: The Gasp Heard Round the Globe

Billy: "I always had a thing for Superman."
PG: "Was it his tights? His cape? His chest? His amazing flying ability?"
Billy: "No. I just always liked him. He is faster than a speeding bullet, you know."
PG: "I thought it was faster than a locomotive."
Billy: "No! It's faster than a speeding bullet."
PG: "Are you sure? I think it's faster than a locomotive."
Billy: "Then what's the speeding bullet about?"
PG: "He's able to stop them. They bounce off him."
Billy: "No, it's: "Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and, and..."
PG: "There's something about a locomotive in there. I know it."
Mumbling to ourselves: "Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap..."

Together with a sigh: "Yeah, I don't know."
PG: "You know there was just a HUGE gasp in the comic book world."

I know, I know. Fore shame on us.

"Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound..."

I knew there was something about a locomotive.

The original Superman - as it turns out - was NOT faster than a speeding bullet.

Strange but true.

Also, the original superman couldn't fly - but he could leap for 1/8th of a mile.....

I love superman too! He's just so... super!

I wasn't aware that the original Superman couldn't fly. That sort of straightens out the whole "able to leap tall buildings in a single bound" thing. I always wondered what the big deal about that was when the dude could FLY.

What cave? The gay disco. I mean seriously, do not read my posts??

Yeah, there's also a supposed 'Superman curse.' All the men who have played Superman have had some sort of violent and tragic death befall them.
