I suppose it was bound to happen. Clark Kent, AKA Superman, has left his long time job as a Daily Planet reporter. From Mashable:
According to USA Today, he doesn’t go quietly. In fact, Kent resigns in a “Jerry Maguire-type moment,” loudly in front of the entire staff. The beat reporter emphatically emphasizes his unhappiness with how journalism has given way to entertainment.
“Go easy on us,” another journalist tells Kent. “Times are changing, and print is a dying medium.”
According to the comic’s author, Scott Lobdell, Kent will likely start a blog. “I don’t think he’s going to be filling out an application anywhere,” Lobdell says. “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.”
Very interesting. I wonder if he’d hire me. 😉
