CNN reports that Superman has quit his long-time job working for the mainstream media, and may well take up blogging:
Add Superman to the list of reporters leaving the newspaper business behind.
In the comic book series’ latest issue, which went on sale Wednesday, an outraged Clark Kent quits his job at The Daily Planet after his boss berates him….
In an interview with USA Today this week, writer Scott Lobdell said Kent is much more likely to start his own blog than he is to search for new work in the news business.
“I don’t think he’s going to be filling out an application anywhere,” Lobdell said. “He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report than he is to go find someone else to get assignments or draw a paycheck from.”
Well, allow me to invite the Blogger of Steel to do a guest-blogging stint here at the Volokh Conspiracy. Perhaps he would care to respond to my 2006 post on “The Law and Economics of Superman,” where I criticize him for misallocating his superpowers and ignoring opportunity costs, or the post where I pointed out legal errors in his latest movie.
