As usual during these tournaments, I requested guest posts to provide the case for why the finalists for in the matches to decide your favorite DC couple should win today. Here’s the post I received for Lois Lane and Clark Kent/Superman. I had no volunteers for Dick and Babs so I’ll link later to one written two years ago.
This essay is by reader Amelia Faulks. Her thoughts follow.
At its very heart, at its very core, this is a story about one of the greatest double acts in popular culture. It’s a story about friendship, loyalty, love. It’s a story about contrasts and similarities, and a relationship that while currently marginalized, sidelined, and largely absent from the New 52- in a way that fundamentally damages the Superman mythos- has stood the test of time. But enough yabbering about Jimmy and Perry; I’m here to talk about Lois and Clark.
The winner of yesterday’s matches were both Bats - Batman/Catwoman and Dick Grayson/Barbara Gordon.
Today’s matches are Flashy:
Superman and Lois Lane
Barry Allen and Iris West Allen!
Kate Kane/Batwoman and Renee Montoya/The Question
Wally West/Kid Flash and Artemis Crock!
Remember one vote per person. Voting will close at 8:30 PM EST
As I was shopping last week I noticed in the aisle devoted to children’s “fruit” snacks (i.e. gummy candy with fruit juice) that there was a new addition.
I’m not surprised to see new Superman merchandise given there is a big budget movie out this summer, but, as you can see this, this Superman is not wearing New 52 or movie costume but the classic costume.
And there is something else classic IN the package as well!
