With "Superman Returns" under production, nerds are salivating over the thought of comic's most well known superhero returning to the big screen. Not surprisingly, the release of the first shot of the new Superman triggered a lot of ruckus online, including on the Something Awful Forum. Some were a bit disappointed, some excited, and others decided to have fun with the picture. This week we're doing things a bit differently, and showing you a number of goofy takes on the new big screen Superman. It's not the typical Phriday, but hey, a little variety is good.

For the record, this is what your new 2005 model Superman looks like. Pretty darn... mediocre.

eightcell got all this stuff started with this picturegraphical Bat-conversion!

onilly is used to seeing his name in sex offender databases, so this will be a new one for him!

Unkempt made this lovely rendition of Red Son Superman.

More Photoshop Phriday

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
