Welcome to the one hundred and twelfth 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.
This week From Crisis to Crisis’ coverage of Eclipso: The Darkness Within continues!
Yes indeed, folks Jeff and Mike are back along with Scott Gardner to delve further into the Man of Steel’s end of the Eclipso: The Darkness Within Annuals event. The guys start out with Superman Annual #4, where Superman (along with Bruce Gordon and Mona) head to Crater Bay to find Eclipso and things turn ugly fast when Eclipso takes over Lois Lane! In Justice League America Annual #6 the majority of the League fights an Eclipsed Maxima while Blue Beetle faces an Eclipsed Starman all by himself. Finally Superman gets Eclipsed in Action Comics Annual #4 and has a huge throw down with the World’s Mightiest Mortal CAPTAIN MARVEL!
Note: At one point in their coverage of the Justice League America Annual Scott asks about a Justice League titled called Extreme Justice. For whatever reason Mike heard Extreme Justice as Justice League Task Force and starts talking about that series instead of the one Scott asked about. So this is all Mike’s fault. Address all complaints to him.
