Welcome to the two hundredth 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 time out Mike and Jeff begin a three episode stretch where they finish out the second season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. In management there is a concept called “The Compliment Sandwich”. The idea is that when you are giving feedback or criticism to a subordinate you should start with a compliment, give the criticism and then give another compliment.
The episodes discussed during this episode fit into that paradigm.
In The Phoenix we see the return of John Shea as Lex Luthor as well as the start of Lois and Clark trying to make the whole dating thing work. Both of these are huge developments and both have their ups and downs. On one hand John Shea is back. On the other his bald cap is hard to look at. Next up is Top Copy which is an awful episode where special guest star Raquel Welch plays an assassin that poses as the host of a news show. Intergang is involved and so is Kryptonite lipstick because why not? Finally there is The Return of The Prankster where the Prankster returns and there is talk of some wonderful performances and talk of Rocky Horror and a pretty serious conversation about how the bad guys treat Lois.
