Superman Quits The Day Job At Metropolis Newspaper

Is Superman quitting his job as a reporter at The Daily Planet the final nail in the coffin for print media? If Superman can't revive the trade, we'd guess no one can. 

According to USA Today, Clark Kent quits the Metropolis newspaper that has been his employer since the DC Comics superhero's earliest days in 1940 in the next instalment of the franchise. "I wasn't going to test the waters. I was just going to do a cannonball in the Super-verse," says new Superman writer Scott Lobdell. "This is really what happens when a 27-year-old guy is behind a desk and he has to take instruction from a larger conglomerate with concerns that aren't really his own," Lobdell continued. "Superman is arguably the most powerful person on the planet, but how long can he sit at his desk with someone breathing down his neck and treating him like the least important person in the world?"

You'll have to pop down to any good comic retailer to find out what really goes on in the next Superman, but we will treat you to the writers favourite part, where Clark calls for his peers to stand up for truth, justice "and yeah -- I'm not ashamed to say it -- the American way,"
