WHO’S WHO CLASSICS – THE PRANKSTER (PRE-CRISIS)

Welcome to another installment of Who’s Who Classic, a regular feature here at the Fortress where every Monday I will present an entry from the original series of Who’s Who comics that DC published between 1984 and 1988.  Superman was well represented in those series and I wanted to share the entries with you just in case you have never seen them.  Today’s entry is The Prankster (Pre-Crisis)!

Prankster A(originally published in Who’s Who: The Definite Directory of the DC Universe #18 (August 1986)

FCTC EPISODE 168: MAY 1994 PART 2

FCTC 2013 LogoFCTC_Ep_168_LargeEpisode 168: May 1994 Part 2

Welcome to the one hundred and sixty-eighth 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.

The Battle For Metropolis!

Well…about halfway through the episode it is. Actually this is a jam packed episode where Mike and Jeff not only finish up their coverage of the May 1994 cover dated books but also look at a Post Crisis era book that was published years after that era ended. The fun begins with Adventures of Superman #512 where Superman tracks down the Parasite to get over his power problem. Supergirl #4 is next and boy is the Woman of Steel mad. Like really mad. She spends a good bit of the issue trashing Lex’s houses and buildings before confronting the man himself. The Battle For Metropolis officially begins in Action Comics #699 where a back to normal Superman catches up with Lois and then gets embroiled in a (by the end of it) five way confrontation on the streets of the Big Apricot. Then the boys look at Retroactive 1990’s Superman #1, a comic that was published in 2011 but set around this time period. Finally Mike and Jeff take a look at the ads, what else was going on in the DCU that month and yak about two episodes of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
