* Similarly, the classic ''How To Draw Comics the [[MarvelComics Marvel]] Way'' by StanLee and John Buscema demonstrates this with two pages depicting the same potentially boring scene of a couple of guys talking in a room. The second, better version uses cool camera angles and more dramatic posing than the first.

** In pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} days, he kept a giant diary with nigh-invulnerable metal pages in his Fortress of Solitude. Originally, he inscribed the words with his fingernail, but he later build a mind-reading headset and super-strong mechanical arm that could inscribe his thoughts for him (though he had to concentrate, because if his thoughts wandered, it would write down whatever random stuff happened to cross his mind).

** For that matter, in PreCrisis days, the Fortress of Solitude was just the world's most awesome rec room. It had a wall with dozens of TV screens he could watch simultaneously, giant canvases so that he could paint mural-sized paintings with a giant brush, his own ''alien zoo,'' countless souvenirs of his adventures, even a gizmo that could mix up a chocolate shake in a fraction of a second! While the Fortress had its practical uses, its main purpose was always much more recreational than [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce's]] Batcave. It was where Superman went to relax.
