Another four years has gone by, so it's time to revisit this message thread...  Wink

"Happy Birthday, Superman!"

I see that Supermanica has been restored just in time for the celebration.  Thanks, Rao!

Thanks for posting this, Uncle Sporkums. To my inexpert eyes, Russell Keaton's work certainly looks more polished than Joe Shuster's; I guess the concept (time-traveler from the future into Earth's "present", rather than one from the "present", into Earth's future) was still too redolent of "Buck Rogers" to sell to the syndicates.
I don't think it was ever shown, in any Superman origin story that I've seen, how the Kents were able to keep the growing Superboy from leveling their house after he was shown wrecking the orphanage; and why the orphanage employees, years later, never came forward with their suspicions that Superboy may have once been the super-strong baby adopted by the Kents.

If it helps any, the earliest reference I could find of Supes described as a boy scout was on page 25 of the essay The Spawn of M.C. Gaines, written by Ted White, the opening piece in the nostalgic essay collection All in Color for a Dime. All was published in 1970, though Wikipedia says that the pieces contained therein were written in the early sixties.

Please forgive me if this has been posted before, but I tried the search engine, and no results for this came up. This has been around for a while, but is pretty historical. Around 1936 while Siegel and Shuster were still looking for publishers for Superman, Jerry actually enlisted the help of illustrator Russell Keaton to work on a proposed strip for Superman in which The Man of Tomorrow was literally that! The last super-evolved survivor of a future Earth, who was sent back in time to survive! The strip didn't get past the origin story, and there appear to be portions of the script that were never even illustrated. But these restored versions show a very different backstory for the iconic character.

I don't know about DKR. In Superman II in 1980 (Donner's/Mankiewicz's footage shot around 1977) Otis refers to Superman as an "Overgrown Boy Scout"

An artist that gets little respect for his penciling on the Legion, but was terrific inking Curt Swan, was John Forte. I believe Kurt Schaffenberger, in a biography of Swan, opined that Forte was the best Swan inker of all.
