Well, true, but then the same computer that tells Superman that Hyperman is going to die could have told him whether Red Kryptonite really was deadly to himself as well... Cool

Fair enough, though it makes me wonder if Superman had the computer around when he first encountered Red K?

As an aside, is the storyline where Superman executed those 3 Phantom Zone criminals still a part of "canon", or has it been regulated to "mopee" status?  I hope it's now just a rude memory.

Superboy-Prime's trusty punch took that nasty bit of history away, but it's not like that was the real superman anyway.

Yeah, the good thing about comics is, hey they aren't real, so you can live the stories and eras that you want and there will come a "crisis" that makes that an OK and defendable choice...

Thus the "mopee" is back to a choice of preference anyways... Cool

I thought of two Mopee stories involving one of my favorites, the Metal Men.

1)  The Metal Men were actually made of a polymer material which simulated the appearance and properties of the metal they were supposed to have been made of.  I believe this was in John Byrne's Action Comics # 590.  

2)  Then in #599 we are told the Responsometer, which gives them their intelligence, is microscopic.  Finally, in the mini-series which said they were actually humans originally the responsometer is the size of baseball and looks sort of like a golf ball.
