This past weekend JC and I attended our fourth Superman Celebration in the town of Metropolis on the soluth border of Illinois. Their unique annual carnival also plays host to plenty of tourists as well as Superman-related celebrities that the town invites to sign autographs and such.

Appearing in 2012: Cassidy Freeman! First known as Tess Mercer from TV's Smallville, she's now appearing in the new A&E series Longmire.

Also starring: John Glover! You know him as Lionel Luthor, the voice of the animated Riddler, the zillionaire Clamp from Gremlins 2, the network weasel from Scrooged, and more more more.

(Notice carefully how the volunteer who snapped this clicked the button at exactly the wrong time, missing Glover's devil horns behind my head and a facial expression that didn't make me look goofy. RAAAAAR.)

There were costumes a-plenty, of course. Fanciest were these official reps for DC's New 52, at least two of whom are professional models.

My least favorite was Powerballgirl (or whatever), a hired shill for government-approved gambling. Enjoy.

More pics and stories are available elsewhere, including pics of TV's Gerard Christopher, comics pros George Perez and Terry Beatty, and the mayor who cooked me breakfast.

Based on responses to recent picture threads, I wasn't sure an overdose was necessary here, but we thought we'd share the better photos here for fun. I wanted to add the Gerard Christopher photo as well since it's a nice pic, but it refuses to show up here. No idea why. GRRRRR.

This was one of their best years yet! I definitely recommend it for people who like Superman, small towns or funnel cakes.

The Superman variant looks a little like Last Son of Krypton's.

I heard they were making changes in DC, but don't even know who the two girls are supposed to be, but I guess the one in the purple is catwoman?? The new superman suit looks like the eradicator from Reign of Supermen, minus the goggles.

Doesn't exactly sound like much of a Metropolis,

Considering the mayor is moonlighting as a convention caterer

The town was optimistically named back in the 1800s.

The side of town that has the casino on it definitely looks city-tastic these days.

Cassidy Freeman is one of my favorite actresses. She and Ericka Durance's acting talents were wasted on Smallville. As evidenced by Saving Hope which, in the pilot episode, gave Ericka more to do actingwise than she had in 7 seasons of Smallville. :no:

Sounds like a nice time! I keep meaning to get to one of these. Would have loved to have met John Glover.

Ummm, powerball girl is hot.


Most corporate shills are! I mean, they have to have SOMETHING going for them, right?

Tess Mercer... so so hot.

Nice to see that Snooki isn't taking being pregnant hard, she looks good as a Power Ball.

That's Huntress and Power Girl. :)

The Superman Celebration always looks so fun, btw. Unfortunately I am literally thousands and thousands of miles away.
