(Re-Post from 2018, for the premiere of the Snyder Cut.) Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, who were bullied and beaten up as boys. (1941)
I just watched the whole 4-hour epic Justice League, the Snyder Cut Edition.
It was sooooo “sick” and much better than that abomination we saw in 2017. Something told me to look up why Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman in the first place. Most articles suggesting, it was to create a character strong enough to rid the world of bullies like Hitler, Tojo, and Anti-Semitism. Some say it was to get girls, as others say a tragic event early on may have inspired the creation.
I guess you really can’t say that ‘The Man of Steel,” was created by two Nerds who got fucked up in school every day. Whatever the truth is, you can read an actual article from 1941 in my possession.
