Oh, Super

Superman always saves the day – of course, we get that.  Yet what happens once the man of steel has finished his day’s work and retreats back to the Fortress of Solitude for a little rest and relaxation?

He has learned his lesson in the past that it is not in the world’s best interests if he takes his current human love interest back there – somehow it always seems to end in tears... so he has come up with an alternative. There must be some way for him to have company after he has counted his new Twitter followers!

This  funny and very contemporary (notice the John Carter reference) animated short is by director and animator Michael Roberts and is very much a personal fan film.  Created in After Effects and Photoshop, it’s a hoot! Plus it’s a pretty good piece of advertising for the forthcoming Man of Steel reboot next year
