It's nice to see the leather jacket magic angel again, but I don't know what to make of the redesigned Superboy.

I think the new design is pretty cool.  ;D

Is Superboy Superman as a boy, or a whole different person?

His costume is cool, but I'm not loving the haircut. It looks almost alt-right. I presume Superboy is pretty apolitical, though.

Which makes me wonder. I haven't read a comic book in years. Are there people of color in comic books these days? I don't just mean as the superheroes themselves, but as the ordinary citizens they save and whatnot?

as far as I know, Superboy is a clone of the original Superman.

as for people of color, yes there are people of color in the background, as well as secondary characters (aside from the heroes).

The first one to come to mind is Stevie Hunter.



Stevie is a former professional dancer, but an injury ended her dance career.  She became a dance teacher, and was teaching the newest X-man, Kitty Pryde as a student.

When villains came for Kitty, Stevie learned Kitty was an X-man, and became a close friend to Professor Xavier and his X-men.   She then began to teach his newest class of students, The New Mutants, using dance to help condition the students for battle.

I agree about the haircut. I think it looks hideous.

Italy ruined my taste for American ice cream. Nothing can compare with that wonderful gelato! Not even American-made gelato. There's just something so pasteurized tasting about American ice cream. . .blah!
May 2019 be better for us all.

The mention of gelato reminds me of a time my sons and I went to a gelato shop in Chicago. They were in line while I sat at a table and I noticed they were cracking up. They were watching a little kid who burst into tears when his mom brought his gelato over. He was upset because the servers had put a cookie on the top.  :laugh: :laugh:

I think it sprang from the earlier mention of Dairy Queen.  :laugh:

I don't blame Lee for preferring gelato to DQ! But I'll gladly consume either, and everything in between.

Makes sense to me!


and happy weekend Bettermost Friends!

Grey and rainy here, spent the day indoors.   It's almost like this day was made to mark the passing of the "unofficial" end of summer, and the soon to arrive official end of summer.

It's cool enough that I haven't used the A/C all day, and now have a fan in to get some fresh air into the place.

I hate that time. I never want summer to end.

Well, when I lived in New Orleans, I kind of did.  :laugh:  It's pretty hot there through October. I remember hearing ads on the car radio for "fallfests" when the temps were still in the 90s and visually it did not resemble fall in any way (the leaves don't turn colors there).

I would hate that!  I like the cooler temps and change of seasons and leaves!

Hello Bettermost friends!

I ended up taking today off work.  I am signed on to my computer, and helping my coworkers, but told them it was going to be a day off and not a work from home day, in case I wanted to lay down and take a nap.

I didn't feel well at all, all day Sunday, and ended up going to bed at 7:30.  I managed to sleep (on and off) until 7am today.

I am feeling better and will be going back to work tomorrow.
