    I'm glad people like the McKenna Jean Harris stuff. I expected more blow-back because of how many people in her Twitter threads were referring to her Clark as "himbo Superman".

    Including a funny "hint" as to her reasoning behind all the posts.

    I'd read it. I'd preorder that book. Need another nice Superman book for my collection.

    ...what the heck does "himbo" mean?

    In general it means a male character who's strong, handsome and kind of dumb. Albeit, dumb in a sweet, polite and supportive way, personality-wise as opposed to a strong, dumb male character who's also full of toxic masculinity. Think Kronk from The Emperor's New Groove or maybe even Launchpad McQuack from Duck Tales. George of the Jungle from the Brendan Fraser movie is another one. Someone who kind of has the same personality as a golden retriever.

    I don't know. I think some of the women replying to those threads just like the sweet, naive "aw shucks" farm boy interpretation of Clark.

    Ah. I prefer Superman be smart and sweet, but hey whatever gets people interested in Clark!

    I suppose.

    And I think sometimes the characterization of characters as "dumb" can be a little more complex. Like how Launchpad has an almost savant-like knack for safely crashing airplanes. Or how Bill and Ted have unusually large vocabularies (that they usually use correctly) and how they are actually good musicians when they apply themselves.

    So maybe her Clark isn't dumb so much as just super-trusting.

    She's high profile and getting lots of buzz. There's no way an editor isn't reaching out and at least starting a discussion. Lots of them are on Twitter and bound to see it. Hopefully we hear an announcement in a few months that she's getting a book, likely one of the YA graphic novels where I think this would kill.

    I know I'd go all-in. I've always got time to rot my teeth with Clois.

    Certainly the comics prototype is Li'l Abner. Think what Clark Kent would be like had his rocket landed in Dogpatch rather than Smallville, and there you are.

    Also ....maybe hire a Superman writer who mentions her in interviews and is interested in writing her??? LOL

    Indeed, that would be a good first step.

    PS Out of curiosity, What is the "bad press" the couple is in "the shadow of"? I dropped the comic books when it became clear Teen Jon and other Bendis' changes were not going to be undone any time soon, so, I'm a bit behind on all things Sups (comic book-wise) these days.
