We’re heading into Man of Steel’s third week of release, and by now, it’s a pretty fair bet that if you’re a Superman or a DC Comics fan, you’ve probably already seen it. And if you’re a big fan, you’re probably going to see it again. In fact, the only real question for most of us is exactly how many times we’ll be seeing it before it leaves theaters.
Psi War is coming. But the pieces building this puzzle have remained somewhat mysterious. Until now.
The Man of Steel has faced many grave threats in his past – but the H.I.V.E. Queen is unlike any foe he’s crossed paths with thus far. An elusive ruler with an insatiable thirst for power, the H.I.V.E. Queen has found a way to control her drones to become completely subservient to her every command. But what is she after? And how will Superman be able to fight off her army if it continues to increase at such an exponential rate?

Rocketed to Earth from the doomed planet of Krypton, the baby Kal-El was found and raised by Jonathan and Martha Kent in Smallville, Kansas. Gifted with powers and abilities beyond that of normal humans by the Earth’s yellow sun—faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound—the adult Clark Kent now fights for truth and justice throughout the world as SUPERMAN!
For years, MAD MAGAZINE and the Man of Steel have had a very … unique relationship. It was only fitting, then, that to commemorate Superman’s 75th anniversary, MAD has come up with their own special magazine-sized summer one-shot that collects some of their most beloved Superman-centric parodies, gags, spoofs, and more!
We’ve heard it before. Superman isn’t the hero for you because he’s too “clean cut.” You like edgy heroes. The sort of super heroes who wear dark, extreme costumes and use tactics that often enter the realm of questionable. We get it, and we have plenty of super heroes like that. However, we think you may have the wrong idea about the Man of Steel. While he’s heroic and inspirational, that doesn’t mean he lacks an edge. At least when it comes to some of his merchandise.
As the world’s strongest, most powerful super hero, Superman’s adventures tend to be very large in scale.
Heck, that’s putting it mildly. They’re massive. Epic. So big that they give every inch of your retinas a workout. However, usually the art’s limited to what can fit in a panel or occasional splash page.
Let’s face it, as a comic book fan, it’s not easy to impress your friends.
Sure, you may have a mint condition first printing of the Riddler’s debut appearance in Detective Comics #140, or a copy of Swamp Thing #37 with Rick Veitch’s signature and a sketch of John Constantine on the cover. Heck, you could possess every single issue of Superman ever published, and it’s unlikely to garner more than a shrug from your non-comic reading friends. And as for your fellow comic collectors… Well, they probably have their own equally impressive collections.
