Quote from: "MatterEaterLad"
I am SO sad you started in a way in the Superman Blue era...LOL... Cheesy



But I guess one point might be that Superman does not HAVE to be a product of his time, he wasn't in the 60s when I grew up either...




LOL, well that was the only issue that I brought, and I sold it.



I just got it for the superman comic it came with, which I still have. I still have the glasses too, BTW. That comic is crazy cool with three stories.



anyway, Here is the story that made me a fan all over again:

here it is:



Others stories included "The Origin of Superman!" from Superman No. 76, May/June 1952

and

"The Man who Bossed Superman!" from Superman No. 51 March,
1948


Note that none of them were Sliver Age tales.

That was only 8 years ago!  :shock:

He didn't start to reflect current sensibilities until they did the first revamp in the seventies. I was born in the early sixties. My first exposure to Supes was issue #199, the race with the Flash. I was five and was out somewhere with my mom. I was acting like most five year olds do and she was desperate for something to distract me. She went to a newspaper stand (sigh) and bought copies of Superman, Batman and Justice League of America. We then went to Woolworths to shop. While she was looking at items, a guy came up and told her how well behaved I was. She turned around and there I was reading quietly. I was hooked. We actually shared comics for awhile. She liked the soap opera feel of Spider-man. Those were the days I tell ya...

The seriousness started to bother me in the 70s, we all know Supes was an unrealistic paragon of virtue, I liked him that way, he didn't need to be the "greatest unrealized Green Lantern" etc...I liked the Green Lanterns in their own right...

And the creation of way too many alternate Earths (I liked Earth 2, thought it was clever), to the point where Earth 1 wasn't Earth, but then people still don't like the TRS 80 comic (fun, and it involved Supes with KIDS, as it should be) -- "canon masters" can just call it an Earth 1 story that's not from our Earth...

But what world is the Hostess Twinkie world where heroes and villain can be controlled by sugary goodness?

Sugary goodness (amplified by the rays of a yellow sun) may trump heat vision...
