HERE’S THE THING EPISODE 17: SUPERMAN’S HAIR IS SERIOUS BUSINESS

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn’t enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here’s The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you’re wrong and he’s right.

This week, Chris has a very serious discussion about Superman’s hair. No, really: You will believe a man’s coif can provide a strong visual signifier of his character and can make another, slightly more volatile man hate a movie six months before it comes out.

Show Notes:

  • Chris’s review of Man of Steel. He will never not be mad about this stupid, stupid movie.
  • Visuals for this week’s episode courtesy of a 1975 Power Records Superman LP, featuring “The Mxyzptlk Mix-Up.”
  • Further discussion about costume design can be found in Ask Chris #194.
Q
Really though, doesn't Firestorm deserve a better costume?
A

Firestorm’s costume is amazing and you think otherwise you need to re-evaluate your life and get right with Jesus.

Q
Student who gets highest A on test gets championship belt. Must defend title at every test. Student that got second highest gets a Money in the Bank briefcase they can cash in to make a Pop Quiz happen between them and championship holder for the title. Champ at the end of the month gets a giftcard or some shit.
A

THE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE CAN BE, LIKE, A BONUS DROP-GRADE AN EXTRA 100 TEST GRADE SOMETHING. Something other than a gift card because— as much as kids like free junk— they like classroom rewards even better.

THIS COULD LEGIT WORK BECAUSE COMPETITION BREEDS BETTER AND HARDER WORK IN THE CLASSROOM. AND KIDS LOVE TO TRY AND ONE-UP EACH OTHER.

This is actually amazing.
