Welcome to the 135th episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
REIGN OF THE SUPERMEN BEGINS!
This week Mike and Jeff begin (finally, some would say) their coverage of the last act in the DEATH AND RETURN OF SUPERMAN saga and they even brought a friend along. Joining the boys is Jon M. Wilson, host of GOLDEN AGE SUPERMAN and co-host of THE NEW 52 ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN and it is a good thing Jon’s here because there is not one but four Supermen running around Metropolis. Two of those Supermen are introduced this week, the first in ACTION COMICS #687. Has Kal-El of Krypton returned? It certainly seems that way but why does he wear a visor and, you know, kill people? Then, in SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #22 a true Man of Steel emerges, but what is the dark secret of Henry Johnson and who the heck is the White Rabbit? All of this plus MEANWHILE AT THE DAILY PLANET, the news segment that tells you what was going on in the world at the time these books were on the stands!
Mike and Jeff would like to thank Jon for coming out to play and are pretty psyched that he’ll be joining them again down the road.
Next time: Cyborg! Superboy! Another guest host!
