    Superman For A Modern Time.

    Superman. The man of steel or the big blue boy scout? As legendary as this character is he also happens to be one of the most divisive in today’s modern age. The common complaint I often hear is that people can’t relate enough to him. Fair enough I guess. Warner Bros sort of listened it […]

    For the past 14-years, the X-Men movie franchise has been churning out stories loosely based on Marvel’s seminal comic book series.
