The Super-Man #2 [Super For The Soul 3]

I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about for the third post.  At first I thought I might write about the Suicide Squad movie and Rebirth comic,.. but instead, I decided to do a follow-up to the previous post with the second issue of The New Super-Man.

The New Super-Man #1 [Super For The Soul 2]
What is “Super For The Soul?”

The New Super-Man #2
Publisher: DC Comics (Rebirth initiative)
Release Date: August 10, 2016
Written by Gene Luen Yang

“Made in China” part two! The New Super-Man must face off against the Justice League of China? When Kenan Kong was imbued with the powers of Superman, he didn’t waste any time using them! Now it’s up to the New Bat-Man and New Wonder-Woman of his home country to bring our hero back down to earth—just in time to stop the attack of the deadly Sunbeam! – Official solicitation

Purchase this comic digitally here.

With the second issue, already we see that even though Kenan’s father slightly represented who Jonathan Kent was to Clark Kent/Superman, Kenan’s father is very different.  His father may have some of the ideals of a super hero like Superman, but he doesn’t see it as something that he’s instilling in his son.  Jonathan     Kent was there for Clark every step of the way as a child to help mold him to who he became.  Jonathan knew Clark was someone very special and that he would grow up to do great things for the planet.  Kenan’s father is absent and needs to be convinced that his son could perhaps one day embody the things he believes in.

Deathlok [PVP Tournament #7 Hero] – Marvel Avengers Alliance 2

Deathlok

Note: 
This is my first character related post.  I really hope you find this helpful.  Please comment below to give me an idea of what worked and what didn’t work for you here, and what you’d prefer.  Enjoy!

PVP Season Rewards

The PVP Tournament #7 for Deathlok ended the first week of August 2016.  Though his abilities were available to to look at before, I’m only now looking at them and trying them out.  Reading about them is one thing, but better to try them out, especially after you’ve  leveled up the character so you can really see what he or she can do, especially in comparison to other characters.

I’m getting to the point where I’ve leveled up every character I wanted and am now working on leveling up all the other characters to 30.  For me, it’s more about who am I going to choose to work on 4 Staring.

The New Super-Man #1 – Super For The Soul [SFTS 2]

This is my second “Super For The Soul” post, and my first official post not about ‘what it is.’  I haven’t really nailed down the format yet, and still playing around with what this will actually end up being even after having written a statement about ‘what it is.’

Official Solicitation:
“MADE IN CHINA” Chapter One: An impulsive act of heroism thrusts an arrogant young man into the limelight of Shanghai as China begins to form its own Justice League of powerful heroes. Rising from the ashes of The Final Days of Superman, award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang and on-the-rise art star Victor Bogdanovic introduce readers to Kong Kenan—the New Super-Man! When the world needed a new hero, China made him!

There is so much that can be discussed about and explored about this book in general. like the cultural, societal, racial, political, and global contexts, and their implications in real life and within the DC Universe.  What does it mean to be a hero in China?  How does China view Superman?  Is he their hero too?  Does that effect China’s views on this New Super-Man?  All these questions, but alas, that’s not the focus of this post.

SPOILERS!    SPOILERS!    SPOILERS!

WHAT’S SIMILAR TO MAA1

WHAT’S DIFFERENT IN MAA2

WHAT DO I THINK OF MAA2

I’m hoping to begin a series of posts discussing various games that I play.  This is my first, beginning with Marvel Avengers Alliance 2 [MAA2] where I’ll discuss my relationship to the game by comparing the original game to this newer one.  My hope is to follow up this post with more posts on different aspects of MAA2 and share how I play this game without spending any money, yet achieving everything it has to offer thus far.

What Came Before:  Marvel Avengers Alliance 1

I was a huge fan of the first Marvel Avengers Alliance [MAA1] game. For those who aren’t familiar, I’m going to be going into this assuming people have a general knowledge of the original game.  If some terminology is confusing, the game has been around for a while now and it’s easy to look up if you want to.  Otherwise, I’ll try to explain some things, or answer questions in the comments section.  Basically it’s a turn-based strategy game by the Disney owned game company Playdom for Facebook.

The ‘Super For The Soul’ Project [SFTS 1]

I need a super hero.  I want Superman back.

Of late, I’ve been really feeling that I need more hope and inspiration in my life.  Hope in humanity and in my dreams.  I KNOW there is hope in humanity, I see it once in a while, but I can’t even watch the news anymore, it’s so depressing.  Even our super heroes have gotten too dark.  I feel like I’ve gotten to a place in my life that I thought I’d never be, a place where maybe I’ll have to accept that the dreams I’ve grown up pursuing will not come true.  I’m very grateful for all I have, I’ve VERY lucky, but I have always told myself that I’d rather die than be depressed without any hope for my dreams, to live only to survive.  In my mind, there was no other outcome, no alternative.
