For the most popular super hero of all time, Superman has the absolute worst villians. His best villain is easily Lex Luthor and he’s just a criminal mastermind constantly after real estate (see the plots for the Superman, Superman 2, and Superman Returns movies). So as Six Flags New England announced an upgrade for the best steel roller coaster on the planet, then repainted it purple and created a faux-company site called Clawshun Industries, all signs pointed to a Lex Luthor-themed coaster.
Now, SFNE Online has uncovered the new theme via a Dunkin Donuts coupon. Apparently, Superman Ride of Steel will be re-themed as Bizarro. If you’ve never heard of Bizarro, don’t worry, you’re not alone. He’s apparently the product of a dupliation ray experiment gone wrong. You know how those can go. I remember him from the 90’s Superboy live action tv shows. He could match Superman in strength, but had much lower intelligence. He had white, rocky skin and Superman costume with a backwards ‘S’. There better be quite a pre-show experience because I doubt most of the general public will have any idea who he is since he hasn’t been featured in any of the films.
What’s Your Take? What do you think of the new Bizarro Superman theme? Also, check out my full Superman Ride of Steel review to see why it’s my top-rated roller coaster. Leave a comment below.
