Superman becomes Blogger quits his job on The Daily Planet

Superman becomes  Blogger quits his job on The Daily Planet

BBC reported that  Superman is giving up his once-promising career in journalism.

Alter ego Clark Kent is resigning from the post of star reporter at the Daily Planet, the Metropolis newspaper where he has worked since the first Superman comics were published in the 1940s.

DC Comics, which publishes the Superman stories, says Kent will walk out in protest that hard news has given way to too many "soft" entertainment stories.

The move has been prompted by the Daily Planet's takeover by a conglomerate.

The publisher has hinted that the Man of Steel might even go the way of many journalists and become a blogger, in an effort to get his views across to a wider audience.

The leaked pages from Wednesday's edition sees Superman's alter-ego having a discussion about the state of modern journalism with his editor Perry White and ex-wife Lois Lane, who is a producer for Galaxy Broadcasting.

Superman writer Scott Lobdell said that Superman will be offering his journalistic services at another Metropolis publication, but delve into the world of online blogging and citizen journalism.

USA Today reports Clark Kent has a "Jerry Maguire-type moment" in which he laments that journalism has given way to entertainment. Superman is also upset about the fact The Daily Planet has become part of the multimedia corporation Galaxy Broadcasting.

This may be a temporary  change in storyline
