Welcome to the two hundredth and fortieth 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.
Mike and Jeff continue with their look at the Superman books with a cover date of February 1996. First on the docket is Superman #109, which is a stealth Metropolis Mailbag episode with the twist of an ex-Team Luthor agent wanting revenge on the Man of Steel for ruining his life. Superman didn’t, but this guy is not acting rationally. Then, in Adventures of Superman #532 Lori Lemaris, presumed dead mermaid ex-girlfriend of Clark Kent, returns to Metropolis. The big shock is that she is still alive. The other shock is that her husband has been playing with magic and is out of control. Finally, the boys ask, Hey, Wha’ Happened? Comics Edition and look at the Superman Family Books that came out this cover month as well as mentioning some other books from the larger DCU
