Clark Kent to Quit Daily Planet

Yes, of course there's a whiny speech about what news is supposed to be


Clark Kent quits the Daily Planet in Superman #13 — and he doesn't go quietly. He resigns in front of the whole staff, reports Brian Truitt, "and rails on how journalism has given way to entertainment." (The Daily Planet is now part of the multimedia corporation Galaxy Broadcasting.)

New "Superman" writer Scott Lobdell explains that "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." Kent will find a new platform to speak the "unvarnished truth," says Lobdell.
