Isn't it likely that if Salman Rushdie existed on DC-Earth, at some point Superman or any other hero would have been called on to protect him from that crazy fatwah? I mean, c'mon, at one point, Iranian businessmen were offering $3 million to off the guy, not to mention the $600,000 bounty the clerics offered.

Except for Nazis and "evil Russians," there aren't a lot of villains with known political affiliations, but still - 3 million smackers can tempt even the amoral mercenaries of the DC Universe, guys like Mirror Master and Captain Cold, Deathstroke the Terminator, etc.

Then there's that hubba-hubba Mrs. Rushdie, who can be fantastic in the hands of an Aparo or someone with skill for gorgeous chicks. Incidentally Padma Lakshmi, Salman Rushdie's wife, was in GLITTER. Which means that at some point, Salman Rushdie had to see GLITTER.

It's known the creators of Superman are two kids from Cleveland (and Metropolis is partially based on Cleveland), so I'm honestly surprised a known Clevelander like Michael Stanley has never popped up in a Superman comic anywhere. I mean, the guy is a comics fan: check out the Neal Adams ("Four cows shot me down") issue of AVENGERS on the cover of the CABIN FEVER album.

And then there's another known Clevelander, Drew Carey. He's one of the few people in real life that look like Kurt Schaffenberger drew him.

Incidentally, one of the worst things about the internet is the anonymity. Ever since I heard Mark Hamil and Samuel L. Jackson were comics fans, I've been blowing my brains out on message boards wondering "Is THIS guy, behind the screen name, really Samuel L. Jackson?"

I can totally see Luke Skywalker himself on Superman Through the Ages exclamation point.

Mr. Jackson, do you think the Phantom Zoners deserved to die?

YES THEY DESERVED TO DIE, AND I HOPE THEY BURN IN HELL!

 Okay, okay, I'll admit it, I'm really Samuel L. Jackson. You found me out.
