I didn't know this was a thing until today. It looks really interesting to me. I tried to search for this half a dozen times but I keep getting an XML error or something. I didnt see it in the last 3 pages.

I have an idea how to make this not a total rip-off, and be fairly clever.


Go full on with the parody flip.

After he goes on a rampage, and declares himself king of the world. An Alien invasion of peaceful superpowered aliens show up, and are confused why their emissary went on a rampage. Turns out he hit his head and got braindamage in the crash landing.

Reverse Goku/Irongiant him. Instead of alien invader that hit his head, and fights to save humans from the other invaders. The aliens were good guys, and hitting his head turned him into a monster.

But then if you follow the DBZ formula, then the good aliens become evil also to fit in with not-Goku

Just saw this preview. Not big into "true" horror, so the parody aspect and being a straight rip of Superman has perked my interests. Trails off Batfleck's mental attitude about the insane and scary the power level of Superman is to the general populace.
I wonder if in the process of murdering everyone in this one, does he stop to sexually assault Lana Lang? Is his mom gonna have to kill him with a weapon/kryptonite from his spaceship? Does Bruce Wayne exist in this world? Is he equally fucked?

Anyone see this yet? Debating going tonight or tomorrow
I saw it and enjoyed it. It does a good of depicting what would happen if a non benevolent "Superman" arrived. The violence is a lot more realistic than the Marvel movies. Earns the R rating I would say.
