Superman Forever Radio Episode 41- The SFnR

Episode 41- The SFnR

(NOTE- This episode was originally posted as Season 2, Episode 1)

Change is in store for Superman Forever Radio, as the DC Reboot inspires David to take the show in an all new, fresh direction.

It’s a major announcement that will change the show’s second season, and the way Superman is covered.

Amalak, the alien with a mad on for Kryptonians must contend with Superman, Power Girl, Supergirl, Krypto, and Christopher Kent in Superman #670, which concludes the “Third Kryptonian” storyline.

The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel face down Darkseid in the conclusion of the “Torment” storyline in Superman/Batman # 42, before going toe to toe with Dr. Light in issue #42.

And, we conclude the first season of Superman: The Animated Series with the 13th episode- “Two’s a crowd” where we learn the importance of a big screen TV.

And Darkseid returns to the show to make amends, and to make his own important announcement.

 Episode 36- Bizarro am love Superman

Welcome back.

After a two week hiatus, things finally get back to normal on SFR, for the first time in a while.

Back to one episode a week, and happy.

This week, we look at the rest of the Superman books cover dated October, 2007.

Including Jimmy Olsen‘s battle with a Kryptonite-powered monkey in Action Comics 854.

Superman arrives on Bizarro world with Action Comics 855.

And we take a good look at Bizarro, from his first appearance, to the creation of Htrae, and the post-crisis rebirth of the imperfect duplicate.

Then we take a trip on the dark side, as Superman takes on the corruption of his own soul is Superman #666.

And, the New Gods wreak havoc for the Man of Steel, and the Dark Knight is Superman/Batman #39.

On top of that, we look at one of the funnest episodes of Superman: The Animated series as The Main Man, Lobo arrives and attempts to frag the Man of Tomorrow.

Superman Forever Radio Episode 34- Reboot Thoughts

 Episode 34- Reboot Thoughts

This week’s bombshell put the screeching brakes on what would have been episode 34.

Instead, I had to talk about DC’s plan to reboot, and what it means to me, to this show, and I revisit my initial reaction to the news.

Plus- My loose itinerary for the Superman celebration in metropolis, Illinois-from Brandon Routh to Super-friends- prepare for a great time.

And, finally, an announcement that will change some things in the future.

Superman Forever Radio Episode 31- The Secret Origin of a Superman Fan

Episode 31- The Secret Origin of a Superman Fan

This week takes a different turn.

I was feeling a little sentimental after finding an old Superman book from my youth, and felt compelled to scrap the episode I had planned, in favor of a more personal look back at my own foundations of fandom.

It’s a little bit different from what I normally do, but I think it was something I needed to do.

I do take a moment to add in some news from the week, and talk a little bit about Metropolis, Illinois.

Superman Forever Radio Episode 30- September 2007

This week, a change back to the old format is coming, a LIVE episode of Superman Forever Radio is on it’s way Sunday May 29, 2011, and David is testing out some new waters.

But, as far as the books cover dated September 2007:

It’s Jimmy Olsen week, as Action Comics 852 features a story within a story. Jimmy explores the world of super-powers, as Superman takes out the Kryptonite Man. And, a flashback reveals the origin of Jimmy’s signal watch.

The Jimmy Olsen train makes another stop in Superman 665, where we see the secret origin of Jimmy, which will be ret-conned out by Secret origin.

And, finally, what is making Superman lose his mind with fear? It could be a certain villain who uses fear as a motif, but you would only be half right. Superman/Batman 38 Brings us the answer, and a New God falls. Literally.
