World of Cardboard






This is why Superman almost never hits someone as hard as he can. Why, even if he says he is, he isn't hitting Rogol Zaar so hard, he could break him.


This is why Death of Superman lasted over multiple issues, taking days to end. This is why animated Superman fought Darkseid TWO other times, before finally making this speech.



A Superman who hits you as hard as he can, is a Superman who is willing to risk KILLING you. This isn't a choice he's able to make, without extraordinary circumstances pushing him to it.


Otherwise, he would not be Superman.

No, but I did read some hilarious sections in "Alien Sex" while browsing.


Something about Kryptonian sperm leaving a path of destruction around the earth, as invulnerable and unstoppable as Superman himself.



Comic books have played with the concept a bit, like an Armageddon 2000 tie in that had Lois achieving conception, only for the fetus to kick, and kill her.



The phenomenal All Star Superman probably came up with the best solution: Test tube baby, via generic engineering.


No carnal fun for Superman that way, but I guess it's just one more reason he's so heroic (And he's an alien, so we can forgive this incomprehensible sacrifice.)

I love how Darkseid gets up and fucks Clark up with the Agony Matrix.

Of course, Superman fanboys choose to edit that moment out.



You don't need to thank me, cd.

This reminds me of another scene, where Batman and Wonder Woman were discussing Superman, how he so properly tempers his power, never lets it corrupt him. One of them said (iirc): "And that's what makes him Superman."

Sure did. Niven is probably my favorite scifi author.
