Welcome to the one hundred and fifty third 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.
And once again…we’re back.
This time out things start off elsewhere…not elsewhere in the DC Universe (that comes next episode) but in another reality. That’s right, dear listeners, the boys are covering their first Elseworlds story. What if baby Kal-El was found not by Jonathan and Martha Kent in Smallville, Kansas but by Thomas and Martha Wayne in Gotham City? That very scenario is explored in SUPERMAN: SPEEDING BULLETS. Then things move back to the “real world” as the boy start their coverage of the December 1993 cover dated books with SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #28, where Superman throws himself into his work and fights what is quite possibly the most ‘90s super villain team ever. After that things get kind of sad. In SUPERMAN #84 Adam Grant is kidnapped by the Toyman and something really tragic happens. Finally, Mike and Jeff hop into the cab and head downtown for a segment they like to call Meanwhile At The Daily Planet!
