Superman took steroids

Don’t have the Prime 1 Studios kind of budget?  Here’s the next best thing because he too has the full fabric suit AND a bang on likeness on the Henry Cavill head-sculpt AND he’s fully pose-able so you can pose Superman in to whatever ass-kicking position you want!  He comes with the usual awesome features all Hot Toys sets come with such as extra hands AND the exclusive version of the figure includes a light up rock of Kryptonite just in case Supes starts getting out of line and makes moves on your girl or attempts to pilfer your fridge.

A fat Superman would never fly. A pudgy Spiderman can't swing. And an actor who can't get jacked on deadline doesn't have a shot at being a leading man in today's Hollywood. Given the choice between acting chops and physique, producers and directors will often choose the better body. Today studios make bigger bets on fewer movies, aiming for blockbusters that are more expensive and complex than ever to make and whose trailers and posters rely on a ripped leading man. An out-of-shape actor can force a director to recast roles, reshoot scenes, or use CGI effects, often at great expense. Once he is signed on for a role and a production schedule is set, the actor is expected to do whatever he has to to get in the shape required of his character. Fitness budgets are baked into most contracts; studios typically pay for trainers, nutritionists, and even home-delivered meals. Some studios make a point to hire their own trainers so they can control the outcome.

The internet blog io9 observed that "much of the appeal of Batman is that, unlike other superheroes, he’s simply a person who has pushed himself to the edge of his natural limits. The flipside of that, though, is that the villains he faces are also by and large simply people with a single, notable obsession – and that’s why they’re so much more interesting than the usual set of villains." [405] According to What Culture! , "Batman's villains stand in stark contrast to the other rogues galleries in comics lore; they're an unusual collection of freaks who generally blame the Dark Knight for their existence to begin with. Batman villains are usually cut off from reality, often coming to terms with a deranged part of their psyche – mirroring the darkness and split that also defines the Bat." [407] HitFix praised Batman's rogues gallery, stating that "Great heroes are defined by the villains they face, and no group of evil-doers, murderers, criminals and psychopaths are greater than those stalking Gotham City. From murderous clowns, to cerebral assassins, to brutish monsters, Batman has a literal murderer's row of foes that constantly test his crime fighting acumen." [3]

What it all came down to was sales. I started reading and collecting Superman in the mid 1960s, when it was marketed as the "world's best-selling comics magazine!" By the 70s, that was no longer true, and by the 80s--when I was running a comic book store--only a few hardcore DC collectors bought Superman. That was the era of "the Marvel Zombie," and take it from me, the phenomenon really existed. DC was a distant seller in my store. Way distant. Even Crisis on Infinite Earths didn't do well, because my customers (most of whom were 15 year old males)just weren't interested. Then, 1986 rolled around, and there were changes afoot. First, Frank Miller came over from Marvel to do The Dark Knight returns, a daring concept and what would rightly become a classic. At the time, however, I couldn't give the book away! At $, it scared off even the hardcore DS collectors, and certainly none of the Marvel fans gave it a glance. When Rolling Stone did a cover story on it, I was finally able to move the book. When Byrne came over from Marvel to revamp Superman, it was a stroke of marketing genius. Byrne was the hottest thing in comics at the time, and DC turned the revamp into an event. Not only would the old books be put on hiatus and revamped (Action became a Superman team book, and the old Superman was renamed "Adventures of Superman"), there'd a brand-new Superman #1! Suddenly, people were interested. I sold quite a few Man of Steels, especially the variant cover for #1 (the first of its kind). Superman #1 was a smash hit, and I couldn't keep it in stock. Now, Superman had been restored to best-seller status, where he hadn't been for decades.

So, Byrne's revamp, his tweakings, etc., really didn't matter. What mattered is that DC very adeptly stole some of Marvel's "zombie" status and made it work. From that point on, DC began making inroads into Marvel's sales, and they haven't looked back since. So that, my friends, is why Byrne's Man of Steel is still historically significant.

What’s undeniable is that stimulants allow both ADHD and non-ADHD people to stay alert and focused long past the time they’d normally become distracted or fall asleep. Used in that way, it’s not much different from Provigil, the alertness drug for which Plotz served as Slate ’s guinea pig back in 2002. “I am not exactly wired,” he wrote of the experience, “but I’m more alert, more focused, more Plotz-like. Today I’m my own Superman.” But, he added in a cautionary conclusion, “I’d be afraid to make it a habit. I’ll use it again for a special occasion.”
