Here it is:

"SAGA of the SUPER-SONS!"


If it turns out that people actually like this sort of thing and want to see more of it, please speak up.  I've got a couple additional "Super-Sons" stories that I could put online if we get enough requests.

Otherwise I might just work on something else ;-)

I'd forgotten some of the weird stuff in this one, and I just read it a couple months ago!

Consider:

Page 7: Bruce Jr. says: "I'm waiting for someone...someone I need like BAD!" Clark Jr. says: "I guess we both had the same need!"  This kind of dialog recurs in later installments and gives a really creepy subtext to the series.  Was this the original Ambiguously Gay duo?

Page 8: Superman (Sr) doesn't "like using a whole city as a test-tube..." but he has no problem creating a second city, also full of living souls, to conduct that same crazy experiment.  The difference?  Apparently he can somehow make this version "go away" when the test is over.  Better hope you don't live in that reality, or your life span is only a few days long! Talk about god-like power!

Page 9: The way to make that second city? Rip up the San Andreas fault and give it a good shake!  There goes that famous concern for human life again!

Page 11: the highway snaps like a locker room towel under Bruce's bike.  No matter...it "must have been one of those tremors they have out here."  So much for the next generation of "world's greatest detectives."  Bruce Jr wouldn't know a good mystery when it snaps him on the butt like a concrete whip!

Page 12: Bruce Jr. tells Clark Jr to hurry up and change into fighting togs like he's already done...faster than a man of steel and in the space of one panel while operating a motorcycle!

Page 21: Batman mourns for his son..."buried here in this duplicate death trap."  And yet Superman said earlier that this version of the city would disappear eventually.  Wouldn't it have been better to bury the kids in the "real" world?  Or better yet in their own home towns?  As it is, they run the risk of losing even a grave to visit!

Alright, I've added two more Super-Sons stories:


"The Angel with a DIRTY NAME!"

and Haney's latest:


"Superman Jr. is NO MORE!"

Please no more-- those super saps are sucking up bandwidth that could be better served for some silver age go-go checkered sagas!

Maybe, but I'm glad that I finally got a chance to read "Superman Jr is no more".  There are only 1500 copies of that comic book in the world, and I sure won't be able to get a copy of my own any time soon.  :?

Thank you, oh great Rao!  Cheesy
