Episode 238: Lois and Clark Season 3 – Don’t Tug on Superman’s Cape to SuperMann

Welcome to the two hundredth and thirty-eighth 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.

It’s time for another Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episode!  Before Mike and Jeff get into the four Season 3 episodes that aired in October of 1995, they talk about what they’ve been doing since the pandemic started.

That’s right.  This episode was recorded in June of 2020.  Less than two months ago.  This is kind of a record for the guys.

Anyway, after going through how they’re holding up they dive into the episodes.  In Don’t Tug on Superman’s Cape, a rich couple wants to add Superman to their collection while Lois and Clark start having weird dreams about their upcoming wedding.  Then, in Ultra Woman, a woman and her scientist sister try to make Superman apathetic with Red Kryptonite, but it ends up giving Clark’s super-powers to Lois.  Not content to sit around she takes the identity of Ultra Woman and hilarity, along with some genuine heart-warming moments, ensue.  Chip Off the Old Clark is next and somehow a little boy has Superman’s powers, which leads the mother to claim that she had Superman’s love child.  An assassin tries to use the kid to his own ends, leading to one of the worst villain identity reveals of the entire series.  Finally, SuperMann features three genuine Nazis coming out of deep freeze to aid a secret group of other Nazis in their goal of taking over the United States.  They even expose Superman to radiation to keep him away.
