Episode 2 – Silver and Bronze Age Origins Part 1

Welcome to the second episode of It All Comes Back to Superman Presents…Reuse, Recycle, Re-Release, a sub-series of It All Comes Back to Superman Series II where I will occasionally re-present an episode of one of my other shows (either the first iteration of It All Comes Back to Superman or one of the Superman centric episode of Views From The Longbox) and represent them here for…no real reason other than it sounded like a good idea to get all of my non-From Crisis to Crisis Superman podcasting in one place…eventually. These episodes are presented in their entirety with original opening and closing themes, ads, commentary that may not mean anything anymore, and humor that may not have aged well.

This time out I am bringing Views From The Longbox Episode 156 out of the vault, which was originally released on March 19, 2013. This was the first of a two-part episode where I had my good friend and Overlooked Dark Knight co-host Andrew Leyland on to talk about the Silver and Bronze Age origins of Superman. In this installment, which was part of the Superman at 75: The Celebration of a Legend series I did in 2013, Andy and I talk about how Superman’s origin evolved from his first appearance up to the 1970’s. What was added to the origin? When did we, as the audience, first see the full out origin in the comics? How irresponsible is Jonathan Kent with firearms? Listen and find out.

The closing theme to the show is titled Journey and was composed by Pontus Rufelt. It is licensed from Shockwave-Sound.
