Print is Kryptonite

superman-chris-reeves-297x300So its come to this….Superman quit his day job. Newspapers are dead. No doubt the Daily Planet had a lame “last day” celebration consisting of cold pizza and maybe some old, over-hyped cupcakes, with crusty frosting that everybody thought were just “ok.” Maybe General Zod could swoop in and temp for a little bit till they find his replacement.

Some say Pinterest could help their bottom line. Here’s part of the story from the Telegraph:

Scott Lobdell, the writer behind the script, explained his motives behind Superman’s departure from the Planet in an interview with USA Today.

“This is really what happens when a 27-year-old guy is behind a desk and he has to take instruction from a larger conglomerate with concerns that aren’t really his own,” he said.

“Superman is arguably the most powerful person on the planet, but how long can he sit at his desk with someone breathing down his neck and treating him like the least important person in the world?”

Asked about where the superhero might next find gainful employment, Lobdell added: “He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report than he is to go find someone else to get assignments or draw a paycheck from.”
