Quote from: "Great Rao"
You mean they actually bothered to ret-con Master Mesmerizer?  How did they explain it away?

S!


They didn't they just never referenced it again, as if it never happen.

Maybe it really happen on Earth-STSHNBP

Well, old Supes survived an exploding supernova (thrown back in time to an alien world) in the issue right after the Sand Saga diminished his power...this was the last comic I ever purchased... 25 cents!!!!!!

My fave non-event was Jor-el and Lara floating in suspended animation surviving the explosion of Krypton and THEN NEVER EVER MENTIONED AGAIN (except here)

Kinda like Superman living an entire life in an alien dimension and then retrurning to babyhood and beginning life anew on Earth. (100 Years Lost Stolen or Missing)

Come to think of it - why no Untold Stories of Super Menace (looks just like Superboy/Man except he wears a mask and IS EVIL) :roll:

Frankly if Super-Turtle is canon if the Hostess villians appeared pre-crisis in any of the mags deemed as AOK, theyre Canon - Frank Cannon, Wally Wood's Cannon, Cannonball Adderly, Grand Canon ................ :twisted:

True, Supes was a major SuperPowers character but I would lump this in with JLA.
