Who ARE those jive turkeys, anyway?

They look like Transgendered Cyborg, the Kryptonite Man, and D'Artagnon!

IMHO, one of the all time funniest covers ever! The story itself is even wackier!

I voted no.  I feel that Suicide Slum can be incorporated, if necessary, without making the first appearances canonical.

If the ideas and concepts first seen in Black Lightning did not become major fixtures in Superman family comics, why should BL be canonical?

Sheesh, these kind of debates usually find me in the conservative faction when I strive to be a raving lefty in real life!

Well, it could be argued that a lot of characters over the years did not become fixtures in Superman lore. That was never the point of The Great Superman Book. If something happened, then it did. If The 100's headquarters was beneath the Metropolis Superman Museum, then it was. If Inspector's Henderson's son was involved, then he was.

When we consider whether a series is canonical, we are not considering whether it is important or worthy. We are simply considering whether the events in the series ever happened or not.
