Superman Quits Daily Planet, Will Get Entrepreneurial
Via the Christian Science Monitor:

Superman’s human alter ego Clark Kent will quit his job at the Daily Planet in this week’s latest edition of “Superman.” Kent quits after becoming angry over what he sees as the industry’s declining standards.
In Wednesday’s edition, which will be “Superman” issue No. 13, writer Scott Lobdell said personal issues will cause Kent to vent his frustrations by quitting his job in front of the Planet staff…
…”This is really what happens when a 27-year-old guy is behind a desk and he has to take instruction from a larger conglomerate with concerns that aren’t really his own,” Lobdell told USA Today. “Superman is arguably the most powerful person on the planet, but how long can he sit at his desk with someone breathing down his neck and treating him like the least important person in the world?”
Kent objects to recent coverage by the Daily Planet, including a story Lane did on a sex scandal which he sees as lowering the standards of the paper.
Lobdell said Kent won’t be applying at other newspapers in town.
“He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report than he is to go find someone else to get assignments or draw a paycheck from,” the writer said.
