Rao
« on: March 08, 2005, 09:01:16 AM »

Finally threw up my hands and created a Rao entry at Supermanica:

http://superman.nu/wiki/index.php/Rao

Just an initial place-holder entry.  I need more info.

For instance, when is the first time Supes refers to Rao?

The Answer Man himself, Bob Rozakis, notes that:
Quote
It was decided by editor Julie Schwartz to have Superman use the exclamation instead of "Great Scott!"

http://www.silverbulletcomicbooks.com/bobro/10660841129004.htm
so it must be sometime around 1970, no?  I am not aware of any actual Superman or related family member quote about Rao (as opposed to a "Great Rao!"-type oath) before the stories in Krypton Chronicles, etc.  But my collection has many huge huge gaps.

Anyone?
