Superman, The Goldbergs, & Fortnite | Finally Friday

FINALLY FRIDAY is a weekly review article meant to give you some suggestions on what to geek out about over the next week… or so. READING Superman (New 52) Superman has long been a character I’ve disliked. He’s always appeared over-powered and, honestly, boring. The only run up to now that I enjoyed was Grant Morrison’s All-Star run between 2005-2008, which I read as a collection. And that says something, as I find Morrison’s work a little more “out there”.
