Comment of the Day: Lonely Superman Edition

Today, we spun some possible endings for The Walking Dead, composed an epitaph for the humble video store, and learned once and for all why Superman is the loneliest fellow in Metropolis.

In response to this post naming and shaming the worst friends in fiction, commenter Angrier Geek gave us a peek into a very awkward (but, long overdue) confrontation between Clark Kent and his friends:

"Um, Clark. You missed the party I threw for your birthday."

"Yeah, sorry about that."

"You also blew me off for dinner. Blew me off for the movie. Blew me off when my girl dumped me and I needed someone to talk to. And you disappeared when that supervillain attacked us for some weird reason. Seriously, man. You're never there when I need you."

"Gee, I'm sorry. It's just that being a...reporter is a very unpredictable life."

"Dude, I think I see Superman more than I see you and that's just sad."

Next up on the agenda: A frank discussion about Clark's concerning obsession with finding old telephone booths.
