This just in: Clark Kent AKA Superman has QUIT the Daily Planet Newspaper!
In the newest issue of Superman (the comic) Clark Kent quits his job as a mild mannered reporter at the Daily Planet Newspaper in a not-so-mild-mannered way.
According to USA Today, he doesn’t go quietly. In fact, Kent resigns in a “Jerry Maguire-type moment,” loudly in front of the entire staff. The beat reporter emphatically emphasizes his unhappiness with how journalism has given way to entertainment.
“Go easy on us,” another journalist tells Kent. “Times are changing, and print is a dying medium.”
According to the comic’s author, Scott Lobdell, Kent will likely start a blog. “I don’t think he’s going to be filling out an application anywhere,” Lobdell says. “He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the nextDrudge Report than he is to go find someone else to get assignments or draw a paycheck from.”
At first, as a Superman SUPER-NERD I was SHOCKED! But then...it kind of makes sense that CK would be about the reporting of real news instead of TMZ style reporting. I know that I will be getting the latest issue of Superman, will you?
What is your reaction to the iconic character quitting something that is just as much a part of his history as the "S" on his chest?
