Superheroes and secret identities

At my deskThat’s actually not a bad representation. I’m not one of those people who loves or loathes his looks. I don’t mind accuracy. I’d just like to not be bored. Somehow this manages it.

Today I’m thinking of those glasses that Superman dons in order to pretend to be Clark Kent, and of that “Cowboys and Aliens” movie.

Other things I am thinking about include Ta-Nehisi Coates’ New York Times “X-Men: First Class” column and Charles M. Blow’s New York Times “Captain America” column and Jeff Yang’s San Francisco Chronicle “Captain America” column. I’m thinking of Darren Franich’s Entertainment Weekly column about Laurence Fishburne as the next Perry White. I’m thinking of my co-worker Randy who’s working through Grant Morrison’s “Supergods.”

And (thanks to Bernard Tarver) I’m thinking of a certain webseries.
