Episode 29: World of Metropolis

Welcome to the twenty-ninth 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.

Jeffrey and Michael have a special guest on this week to discuss the last of the Superman “World Of” mini-series. Fellow Superman Homepage staffer James Lantz joins the guys to discuss World of Metropolis and a good time seemed to be had by all. This mini-series showcased the supporting cast in addition to showing an untold tale of Clark Kent’s past. See Perry White return to Metropolis and confront Lex Luthor! Thrill to Lois as a fifteen year old sneaking into Lexcorp headquarters only to be caught in the act! Learn how Clark managed to enroll at Metropolis University and cheer as Jimmy is forced to cobble together a familiar time piece to save his friend.

All of this in only one hour and forty five minutes. How do they do it?

  1. Despite its faults, World of Metropolis (WoM) may be my favorite of the three “World of …” limited series. World of Krypton comes close, though the fourth issue is a bit too melodramatic in spots, but WoM almost certainly does more to fill in the details of Clark/Superman’s then-current supporting cast than any other arc/storyline during the Byrne era. Unfortunately, of course, it was also Byrne’s final hurrah. Here’s looking forward to post-Crisis “Phase 2,” with Roger Stern, Jerry Ordway et al. at the helm.
