Marvel Comics Just Played Out The Biggest Superman Criticism

One of the most talked-about theories in DC Comics has to be surrounding Super-Man’s alter-ego. Over the years, we have seen various renditions of the Man of Steel, but one thing never actually changed. This is none other than the detail regarding Super-Man’s alter-ego Clark Kent is just some glasses away from looking like Superman. Even though it becomes acceptable after a certain point, the character doesn’t really hide his secret identity properly and fans have debated for quite a long time. It seems that Marvel just played out the biggest Superman criticism.

Superman is one of the most popular superhero characters in the world of comics. It is also considered the most successful take on a superhero character that has fans hooked on his stories. His human alter-ego Clark Kent is a simple man working at the news company, Daily Planet. There are a lot of characters in the DC universe who have met both Superman and Clark Kent but didn’t really manage to make the discovery that it is the same person. Even though Clark Kent is described as the personification of what he feels about humans, it is absolutely ridiculous to imagine that all it takes is a pair of glasses to set the two apart.



Marvel has most of the characters completely covered up in order to make sure that their alter-egos could not be associated with them. Either that or the characters are permanently in the superhero form and this makes them in no way have the Superman controversy. One such case is the character of Wolverine, there is hardly any detail regarding his true origin story. Not only that but the character also keeps his appearance as Wolverine quite clear. While most of the Mutants would prefer hiding from the world, Wolverine doesn’t care and we are pretty sure that he would be a difficult character to annoy. But it seems that the character also tries the Superman way to hide his identity from people.


The biggest Superman criticism

According to the synopsis for Wolverine: Patch,

RETURN TO MADRIPOOR WITH THE MAN CALLED PATCH! ALL-NEW action, intrigue and espionage awaits you as legendary creator Larry Hama returns with a story set before his original run on WOLVERINE! The mutant known as LOGAN has made a name for himself on the mysterious island of MADRIPOOR, where the locals know him as PATCH. From their haunt at the PRINCESS BAR, what starts as a simple recon mission lands PATCH and ARCHIE knee-deep in a paramilitary struggle that will surface some SURPRISE REVELATIONS and characters! And is that NICK FURY, DIRECTOR OF S.H.I.E.L.D.? Yes, two patches for the price of one!


In this comic, from legendary Marvel Comics and Wolverine writer Larry Hama and artist Andrew Di Vito, we happen to revisit Logan’s life from years back. Logan wants to take a break and thus he goes to the island of Madripoor. After arriving here the character takes on the identity of a nightclub owner who goes by the name of Patch. But he hardly makes any effort to assume the Patch moniker as we see him put on a suit and an eye patch.


It is a rather simple movie considering Wolverine is one such mutant who is quite popular for his exploits all across the world. Clark Kent has a simple personal look but Wolverine actually has something quite noticeable when it comes to his looks and it’s surprising to see him pulling off this secret identity. It is quite clearly a joke at the expense of Clark Kent/Superman.

MCU fans still debate about the Superman criticism but what do you think about it? comments us down.
