Do you remember the dear, old pre-Crisis Superman? Of course you do! He is here again:








It seems good... And it probably is!

Get a load of that chin!  
I didn't know that Bruce Campbell was the pre-Crisis Superman!

FWIW, I think the solar chromosphere is a little hotter than 6000 degrees F...  not _that_ much hotter, mind you, but somewhat hotter.

That's All-Star Superman, not Pre-Crisis Superman, it's a whole new start.

Looks like yet another version of Jor-El and Lara.

All I can say is, they must have had quite an extensive wardrobe collection - and impressive super-speed - to be able to change clothes so many times during that brief final scene before Krypton's destruction...

I like Lara's "Rao" makeup though, if that's what it is Smiley

January 14, 1994 by Phillip F. Schewe and Ben Stein


THE SOLAR CHROMOSPHERE IS COLDER than we thought. The chromosphere is the region between the photosphere (the sun's surface, at a temperature of about 6000 K) and the corona (whose temperature is 1 million K or more). Previously scientists had figured that the chromosphere temperature was relatively cool---an estimated 4300 K at an altitude of 500 km above the sun's surface---but new measurements made at Kitt Peak show that the chromosphere is colder than this. High-resolution infrared observations of carbon monoxide molecules at the limb of the sun provide a new minimum temperature of 3500 K which, furthermore, seems to occur at a higher altitude, 1100 km. Robert Noyes of Harvard Smithsonian says that carbon monoxide clouds may be a transitory phenomenon in the solar atmosphere. (Science, 7 Jan. 1994, Science News, 8 Jan.)


EDIT: Maybe some dumb editor changed 6000 K to 6000 F without converting it?

It looks cool, but I've completely missed the point of it. What's the deal with this All-Star stuff?

I believe this is DC aping Marvel's Ultimate books.

IOW, milking existing characters/books by spinning off an entirely new continuity for them divorced from the mainstream.

Hey, DC also has their animated series books like JLU, etc.

The point is to give All-Star teams of Superstar Writers and Artists free reign to do their own versions of a big time DC hero that is outside of normal continuity. So far we have seen Batman and soon Superman.

That means that the next all-star team that takes over the book after these teams leave, may start over again with their own continuity or I suppose they could build upon what the last team did if they wished.
