“Many Scientists,” Eh?

I finished Showcase Presents:Superman vol 2 last night, finally.

From it, I have two overriding conclusions:

1) Lois Lane needs to form a support group with Rose Tyler.

2) Jor-El did not need an experimental rocket. If he had simply placed his son on any nearby chunk of rock, chances were excellent that he would have gotten to Earth anyway.

One Response to “Many Scientists,” Eh?

  1. David Thiel says:

    I believe those were the same scientists who consulted on Showcase Presents Green Lantern and postulated that light could be simultaneously yellow and invisible.

    The above panel comes from a story in which Superman was exposed to Red Kryptonite, which as seemingly everyone in Metropolis knows, causes strange and unpredictable effects. This time, it caused Superman to wear hats. No joke. And to act as the person who normally wears that type of headgear. For example, donning a British Royal Guard’s hat meant that he marched back and forth so fast he wore a trench in the ground.

    Of course, since this is a Silver Age Superman comic, it’s all an insanely elaborate ruse to cover up what’s really wrong, as you can see above. What does it say about me that I correctly guessed the nature of Superman’s condition?
