Welcome to the one hundred and thirty-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.
Reign of the Supermen Continues!
This week Mike and Jeff continue their coverage of the last act in the Death and Return of Superman saga. Joining the boys for another extremely long but fun episode is Jon Wilson, host of Golden Age Superman and co-host of The New 52 Adventures of Superman. Jon has his work cut out for him as well as Mike and Jeff are nearing the halfway point for Reign of the Supermen! In Adventures of Superman #502 Superboy meets Supergirl and we are introduced to the villain known as The Stinger. Then, in Action Comics #689 a mysterious new Superman pops up in the Fortress as the Man of Steel and Last Son of Krypton fight over who has the right to bear the name Superman. Finally, in Superman Annual #5 we are introduced to a new hero called Myriad but because it is part of Bloodlines she is destined to be mediocre at best. The trio finishes out the show with what else was going on in the DCU at the time these books were on the stands.
Mike and Jeff would like to thank Jon for coming out to play yet again. He, like all of the other guest hosts, is welcome back anytime.
