Welcome to the one hundred and sixty-first 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.
In late 1993 DC launched two new ongoing series and one mini-series based on the heroes that had appeared in the Superman books during Reign of the Supermen. Superboy and Steel proved popular enough to branch off into their own books and Supergirl proved popular enough to get her own mini-series. DC called this the Reign of Tomorrow and Mike and Jeff wanted to celebrate this event. They won’t be giving Superboy and Steel the full treatment going forward unless there is something special about them but for this launch they thought it would be fun to do the full synopsis treatment to these number ones. So sit back, relax and listen to the boys talk about the birth of Team Superman.
