Not sure if anyone's angry...

Its a big group edited entry, so it seems like various accounts ought to be entered without any one being said to be the truth...

But thats just me, discussion about it is fine, that's what this forum is for, right?

BTW, you entered huge chunks of info that was great, IMO.  Supermonkey can speak for himself, but he added back a couple of sentences.  My take, like the story of Superboy's earliest adoptive parents, is that they are all chronicled, so any minor edits I did were to change the person of "Superboy" because there are different accounts and no one is "right" or "wrong", but all the work you put in is still there...

A retcon by any other name is still a retcon. There is no harm in pointing out that there were separate accounts.

About that one, I was mostly just peeved because "unfactual" is not a word. It is an affront to the English language. It's not even a Kryptonese word. You, sir, have failed!

But satisfactual, that should be a word!

OK, I used "unfactual" in a comment on an edit...I failed... :lol:

Anyways, there are accounts, like Superman driving his Superboy robots into the sun when he went off to college or when Clark says he deserves to be called a man after the second encounter with the "Super Teacher from Krypton" that suggests that it is ambiguous when the "boy" became a "man"...to me (and maybe I'm wrong), I thought that Supermanica chronicles the stories without saying whether something like this is right or wrong (or retcons and story)...its fine with me, maybe it deserves discussion, but practically everything you wrote about the stories is still there...

Edited this...

It's ok, I been looking through the TGSB for any Superboy info, finding only a few lines, about Superboy day and those few lines, then they get deleted after all that work!! NOoooooooooo. anyway, I wasn't too please , but they were added back and all is well, so don't worry about it. But, I hope you understand why I was upset at the time. I am over it now.

Add away! :p

Glad to hear it...sometimes you wonder if a group effort is going to work... Cool

I do hope that Gangbuster isn't angry, he put most of the text in, and  almost every sentence is there...
