I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout this evening. Given the premiere of Superman and Lois This week seemed like a good time to take a look at the new show and the new twist it gives the classic Superman Myth.
Smallville has always been an integral part of Superman’s backstory, even before it was named as such. When Superman was founded, it made sense to bring some rural values to anonymous and hostile cities, with Superman importing many of the progressive ideas he inherited from his adoptive parents into crime and depression-ridden American cities. However, times have changed. Superman and Lois Clark returns to a version of Smallville that is both unrecognizable and familiar. Superman and Lois The classic journey of character is cleverly reversed.
