Episode 136: Reign of the Superman Part 2

Welcome to the one hundred and thirty-sixth 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.


This week Mike and Jeff continue their coverage of the last act in the DEATH AND RETURN OF SUPERMAN saga and once again they brought a friend along.  Joining the boys is Michael Bradley, host of THE THRILLING ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN and co-host of GREEN LANTERN’S LIGHT and he is here to talk about the first full appearances of the final two Supermen.  In SUPERMAN #78 the Cyborg Superman crashes into Cadmus and steals Doomsday’s body.  He also meets Lois Lane, who brings him to Dr. Hamilton for testing and the results are shocking!  Then in ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #501 Lois meets the clone of Superman, but don’t call him Superboy because he really hates it when you do that.  Finally the boys tell you about what else was going on in the DCU when these comics were released.

Mike and Jeff would like to thank Michael for coming on to the show and want him to know he is welcome back anytime.
