Stay tuned for... INFANTILE CRISIS!   Wink

Aaahaha! It reminds me of Franklin Richards, who was stuck with that T-shirt emblazoned with "4 1/2" for what seemed like centuries.

I don't care how young you are, it's hard to imagine 1989 ever seeming "quaint" or "nostalgic."

When I go antique shopping I'm always seeing kids oohing an ahhing and puzzling over rotary telephones and typewriters which were commonplace in 1989.  But I should talk --I own and even drive a 1988 car.

IIRC an object has to be at least 50 years old to be considered an antique.

Since it is 2007 currently, something from 1957 or earlier would be an antique.

Let's just say that Superboy is and should be timeless and leave it as that  Wink

One reason I never totally got behind Christopher Reeve's interpretation was that he was too young to fit my image of Superman

I was born in 1974.  Chris Reeve was only a year older than my father.  So for me he was just the right age.

Granted.  But for a kid who grew up on re-runs of George Reeve, Chris took some getting used to.  It was only partly due to his looks, mind you.  The script underscored his youth and relative inexperience by having him rely on Jor-El for advice and by playing up his fresh-faced naivete to contrast with the earthy, "been around the block at least twice" Lois Lane, who comes off to me like an aging barfly hitting on a high school football star.

The part I really didn't get, and still don't, is how people say Chris Reeve looked exactly a Curt Swan-drawn Superman.  Maybe a Garcia-Lopez Superman, or even a Neal Adams Superman, but not a Curt Swan.

Depends on who you're talking to.

Serious antiques dealers and collectors, as well as some governments, use 100 years.  This has given us a plethora of terms to describe "younger" antiques, like collectibles, nostalgia, vintage, etc.


Reeves was well cast as a young Superman and I loved Margot Kidder when I as 8 --everyone over 20 and younger than your grandparents seems the same age to a pre-teen.  Kidder seemed streetwise and urban, Reeves innocent and rural.

Now their differences are jarring!  And nothing like a Swan drawing.
