When Superman and Hellboy Meet...
What a crop of mummy wheat.
I don't have a clue as to what's happening here. Did Hellboy goose Superman with his Right Hand of Doom, causing the Man of Steel to jump? If so, why does Hellboy look distressed over it? Why are they doing this in front of what appears to be a row of tenements? Where is that commercial airliner going? What kind of birds are those? What city is this? Is it spring, or is it fall?
Writers who claim Superman is impossible to write just aren't trying hard enough. A meeting with Superman should be like meeting the best professional athlete on the best team and finding out he thinks of nothing all day but how to use his fame and wealth and skills to help sick children. Hellboy, on the other hand, has a more blue collar sensibility. He works hard, he plays hard.
