Hi Kevin!  I was wondering if you would be interested, and what you would charge to look at a logo I have and give me some ideas for the logo to POP OUT.   I also have a character that needs to be modified slightly and was hoping you could help me with that as well.  Please let me know, you can reach me at chadallansuch at hotmail dot com.

Way cool! I'm pretty partial to the classic Superman movies with Christopher Reeve and this drawing serves as a wonderful memory to his jovial self, always willing to part with a smile to let us know everything was fine. The addition of powerful stars and his flight again would add to the good memories.

That said, having recently seen Man of Steel, it was a decent sort of movie, enjoying the exploration of Clark Kent as a true outsider, but it quickly became a mindless romp through Metropolis with enough explosions to make Michael Bay slap Zack Snyder on the back and go "That's my boy!" At least the costume looked pretty sick and Henry Cavill made for a decent Superman. Michael Shannon was also really good as General Zod.

Overall, awesome job with this piece, and I implore you keep up with the good work! =)

It looks as if he's saluting Hitler... I thought he flew with his fist closed...

It looks great nonetheless! Good job.

You see this Nolan and Snyder? This is what Superman is supposed to look like. See that thing on his face? It's call a fucking smile!

Did you even see the movie? He smiles in it! Don't you remember when he was first learning to fly? Or talking casually with Lois in the containment chamber? He didn't have very many moments to beam cheerily while the frickin' world was being torn apart by malicious Kryptonians, you know. Honestly, would you, in that situation? And personally, I think it's a good thing they got rid of those ridiculous red panties on the outside. Sorry, classic Supes, I respect you and all, but the changes made in Man of Steel, I believe, were with complete purpose, make sense, and were for the better.

Way to take what I said way too literally. Of course he smiles at some point but never during any super heroics or anything. His default expression in that movie is grim frown. The argument that "Oh well dark stuff was happening so he had to be grimacing," is ridiculous. They didn't have to write it that way, they chose to do that which is what created the problem. Rationalization does not equal justification. Yes, he had reasons to be angry, reasons that were contrived by the writers to give him a reason to be angry.

Man Of Steel is so cynical and disrespectful toward its source material that it can't even call him Superman without having every character in the room sigh derisively. The film had no levity, no sense of wonder, it was just a big ugly mess of a film that is sure to please the CoD crowd while alienating actual comic book fans.

I did not interpret it too literally. You just made it sound too literal from the way you put it. Face it, this is a different Superman, he doesn't have to live up to the Christopher Reeve model that so many Donner fanboys seem to worship. Hell, even the New 52 Superman is a LOT different from Reeve, and that's in DC comic canon! There is no definitive, exact version of Superman, you know. There's too many interpretations to even count. That's why elseworlds exist. Man of Steel isn't "disrespectful" to its source material because there's far too many different interpretations to even define which one is the "real" Superman. That is left purely to fan interpretation, but there is no right or wrong answer. If you didn't like it, fine with me, go join the swarm of haters and critics to agree with. But what really frickin' bugs me is that so many of those haters and critics are hating it for the wrong reasons, reasons that the fans of the movie can easily rebuttal, but would unfortunately land them into flamewars against the haters. Just the mere fact that this movie's audience is so torn is an extreme puzzle for me...

It's not about the Reeves movies for me, I never saw them as a kid and only watched them as an adult because I enjoy classic films of the era. It's not this nostalgia thing for me, I'm just don't like seeing Superman, a character who most commonly and most successfully portrayed as a heroic, joyful and idealistic hero, portrayed as this angry and violent figure. It's just not right. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, if you like the movie fine. I just think it's sad that childhood icons are being manipulated in order to appeal to the CoD crowd that can't get behind a hero who isn't scowling and killing.

I dunno, it's awesome too, but when I hear that theme I just think of Superman flying around. :3

When I hear the Shirley Walker version, I think of Superman actually doing things he's good at. ^^

Then again, I grew up with the cartoon. :3

I just feel that John Williams' theme is bit more heroic.
