It occurred to me this morning that there are a lot of people reading this blog and listening to From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast that are getting to know the nineties era Superman for the first time. I think because I am so familiar with this iteration of the Man of Steel that I take it for granted that other people are too. So over the next handful of days (which is code for, “I have no idea how long this is going to go on.”) I thought it would be informative and entertaining (thus making it infotainment) to post the Superman related entries that appeared in the 1990 edition of Who’s Who in the DC Universe and its follow up Who’s Who in the DC Universe Update ’93. Not only are these entries are a great snap shot of what the world of Superman was like just before the Death and Return of Superman went down but you also get to see some pretty amazing art as well. Some characters will have a day all to themselves, others will get lumped into a group of characters. It really depends on how important they are to the world of Superman. The commentary will be fairly light as well as I want the focus to be on the entries.
We’ll start, naturally, with the Man of Steel himself.
