    OTTAWA, Kan. A young girl and her family are calling a local man their “Superman” after he lifted a car off of her in an accident early Friday morning. Nick Harris, 32, was dropping off his daughter, 8-year-old Cheyenne, at Eugene Field Elementary school shortly before 8 a.m. when he saw the incident unfolding on Tremont Avenue — a driver backing her vehicle out of a driveway who was about to hit a student. “I was getting ready to pull the emergency brake when I looked up and saw the vehicle backing over her,” Harris said. “I didn’t even think....

    AFP ^ | March 13 2009
    A rare copy of the first Superman comic book sold for 317,200 dollars at an auction -- a super hero sized increase on the original 10 cents paid back in 1938. Bids in the online auction, which started two weeks ago on, immediately topped 200,000 dollars and a last-minute surge crossed the 300,000-dollar mark. There were 89 bids and Comic Connect extended the deadline by several minutes to catch the late interest.

    When I saw this picture of Barack Obama posing in front of Superman, words failed me. I had seen enough of all that crap with the halos on him and light surrounding his head and all of those Jesus poses... but this one actually made me laugh. So have fun with this, we should make a nice new Obama image with a caption like the three I have suggested.

    Everyone’s talking about politics these days, and in September, that will come to include the heroes and characters of the DC Universe. The place for the discussion: DCU Decisions, a four-part miniseries shipping every other week in September and October, written by Bill Willingham and Judd Winick, with art and covers by Stephane Roux. The heroes…they’re drawn into the political arena both by circumstance and by the actions of one of their own. A look at the art to the right makes that latter part pretty clear. We spoke with DCU Executive Editor Dan DiDio about the story, the idea...

    A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that the heirs of Jerome Siegel — who 70 years ago sold the rights to the action hero he created with Joseph Shuster to Detective Comics for $130 — were entitled to claim a share of the United States copyright to the character Superman. The ruling left intact Time Warner’s international rights to the character, which it has long owned through its DC Comics unit. And it reserved for trial questions over how much the company may owe the Siegel heirs for use of the character since 1999, when their ownership is deemed to...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Kryptonite, which robbed Superman of his powers, is no longer the stuff of comic books and films. A mineral found by geologists in Serbia shares virtually the same chemical composition as the fictional kryptonite from outer space, used by the superhero's nemesis Lex Luther to weaken him in the film "Superman Returns". "We will have to be careful with it -- we wouldn't want to deprive Earth of its most famous superhero!," said Dr Chris Stanley, a mineralogist at the Natural History Museum. Stanley, who revealed the identity of the mysterious new mineral, discovered the match after...

    Smallville Planning Major Death Attention Smallville fans: This news might make you feel like you have butterflies made out of Kryptonite in your stomach, so read at your own risk. Inside sources tell me exclusively that one of the main four castmembers—Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack or Kristin Kreuk—will be killed off before the season ends. Although all of these castmembers are under contract for one more season (they initially signed seven-year deals), producers have decided to have one of their characters meet an untimely end, in a shocking plot twist. Naming exactly who is going six feet under...

    Heroism: To leap in front of a 370-ton locomotive to save a stranger in a dank New York subway pit takes a kind of courage we'd all like to think we have but don't. Wesley Autrey showed it Tuesday and elevated us all. The new year has begun on a high note from Harlem after Autrey, 50, a construction worker on his way to work with his two little daughters, headed into Manhattan's 137th Street-City College station. Before he got through the turnstile, Autrey spotted a young man thrashing about in a seizure and called for help. But he didn't...

    I say we make "Karl Rove: One Hundred Facts" Fact #1. Karl Rove can't catch a cold, but he can get it voted out of office. Fact #2. Karl Rove is bald because his massive brains uprooted his hair. Fact #3. Karl Rove was educated in Utah. Mormons have a 4th heaven just for him. Fact #4. Karl Rove is called the Architect, because he kicks ass in a Classical fashion. Fact #5. Letterman had a derogatory top ten about Rove, but through sly manouvering and allowing the media to overpoll, 9 of the ten stayed home. Fact #6. When...

    Abs-olute madness BY DAVE BARRY (This classic Dave Barry column was originally published on June 30, 1996.) What I want to know is: Why is it important to have visible stomach muscles? I grew up in an era (the Paleolithic) when people kept their stomach muscles discreetly out of sight. Most of us didn't even realize we had stomach muscles; the only people who ever actually saw them were courageous surgeons willing to cut through fat layers the thickness of the Cleveland white pages. I'm not saying we weren't in shape; I'm just saying we had a different concept of...
