Have we got a secret to share with you this week! Remember, you heard it here first, from the top-notch investigative reporters of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!
Brace yourselves… this will shock your world. We have confirmed that Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent is secretly Superman.
In December, DC Comics will be making Superman’s secret identity in Superman #18. This is a story that writer Brian Michael Bendis has been working towards for some time, and leads the guys to discuss the concept of secret identities.
Secret identities have long been a story trope of most superhero comic book stories. It allows the writer to place the main character in different situations to add to the storylines. Some secret identities work better than others. Sometimes the secret identity of a character is not when they are wearing their costume.
We discuss what works or what doesn’t work with various characters. While we discuss a lot of characters, we know that we probably overlooked some, so share your favorite examples with us on social media.
As always, we start the show by getting our weekly Pick 3 selections for new books coming out on November 27. Make sure to get to your local comic shop on Wednesday ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
