Just a comment, to laugh at what I did the past week.
I’ve been watching the movie Man of Steel and then reading the novelization by Greg Cox multiple times, trying to understand what they did based on the script. Two different forms, yet each is enjoyable. I was trying to decide which was better, the 143 minute movie, or the 79k novelization. Which captured the story best. Then I flashed on:
Man of Steel v Smallville
And I hit a wall. HA!
Both movie and TV series cover the same story arc. Birth on Krypton, and ending with Clark/Superman starting work at the Daily Planet.
The “wall” I hit was when I realized that I had forgotten the 217 episodes of Smallville that expand the story arc far more than the movie does. Then I remembered the 87 episodes of Lois & Clark that take the story even farther. Yikes!
I have ordered the Tie-in Novels for the two TV series so I can see how they handled the story, and I need to watch both series a few times to understand which I like better, the episodes or the Novels.
I had to laugh at myself when my “lesson plan” exploded on impact with the “wall”. HA!
