Episode 182: Zero Hour Part 3

Welcome to the one hundred and eighty-second 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.


Zero Hour marches on with Mike and Jeff delving deeper into this reality changing event. In Zero Hour #3 the heroes converge on New York City as the JSA makes its “final” stand against Extant. In Superman #93 Jonathan and Martha Kent receive some late night vistors; Jor-El and Lara. Their mission? To bring their son back to a not at all blown up Krypton. The crossovers continues with Batman: Shadow of the Bat #31 (where an “Alfred” returns), Green Lantern #55 (where Kyle Rayner has it out with Major Force), Hawkman #13 (where lots of confusing stuff happens) and finally Justice League America #92 (featuring the return of Triumph for the first time).

Like the last episode post I have some extras to present to you.  First up the solicits for the Zero Hour and Superman issues.
