The Death of Superman is Hilarious! - This 8-Bit Life
So I had to share this with you guys. If you, like me, were a young kid when the whole “Death of Superman” fiasco went down then the story is probably seared into your soul. I call it a fiasco because that’s what it was, DC literally killed their star hero for a brief payoff without any consideration for what it might do to the medium and the consequences of death in comic books. It could be argued that the “Blackest Night” saga wrestled with this concept a bit but, ultimately it had no real impact on it. Nope, death is just broken in comics. Then again this isn’t necessarily always a bad thing.
Cotradictory statements aside, watch this damn video! It’s hilarious and full of a bunch of stars doing dumb stuff. Enjoy!
And just to make this whole thing even more ridiculous, here’s a rap song from the point of view of the DC exec that made the call to kill Supes. LOL I love the Internets.
