Hey, remember that time that Hollywood made a Superman movie that ended with a fifty-hour marathon of skyscraper-toppling punches? Yes, Man of Steel is tearing up the box office just as surely as the film’s Superman tears up the Metropolis infrastructure during his final showdown with General Zod. You can relive the wonder of that closing scene in Mass Murderer of Steel, a hilariously low-fi flash game created by Eisner-award-winning cartoonist/animator Kyle Ryan. The game’s description says it all:
Enjoy high-flying mass destruction as you ignore the hideous death screams of the millions you are pledged to save! Use your super powers to wage a never-ending battle for self-important allegorical bombast! Bludgeon your senses into numbed awe!
Somewhere, Zack Snyder is crying. Or punching something, whatever.
