Poor Superman. The guy can juggle battleships but he just can’t catch a break when it comes to technology.
First, there’s his job: Statistically, he doesn’t have one anymore, with newspapers folding faster than JLA members up against Doomsday. Sure, the Daily Planet is a big paper, comparable to the real-world New York Times, but they definitely can’t afford to keep that big globe. And I bet they’d can Jimmy Olsen, too, trading his photographic contributions for pictures stolen (“borrowed”) from social media.
It’s probably for the best, though: That globe falls into the streets in every other issue. And Jimmy’s stuff was never much better than iPhone pictures, anyway. (He’s no Peter Parker.)
Speaking of iPhone pictures: How can Superman’s identity possibly hold up when everyone snaps a picture every time they see him? That’s not even getting into all the crazy facial recognition stuff that’s going on.
Can you imagine the TotallyLooksLike entry for Clark Kent and Superman?
If you’re looking for a new product idea for tech, just think of something that would make Superman’s life even more miserable, and you’re probably headed in the right direction.
