Hello and welcome once again to The New 52 Adventures of Superman, your source for reviews and analysis of every appearance and adventure of Superman and his family of characters. This time out, we begin looking at the books from May 2012, which includes the two following stories from Action Comics 9:
“The Curse of Superman” – Superman becomes whatever you want him to be. And now he’s trying to destroy the world, but can he be stopped by the Superman of Earth-23? And what does Morrison mean when he says this is Superman done right?
“Executive Power” – What conflicts would Superman face if he were president? When does saving the world fall outside the purview of that office, and will Superman cross that line?
Also, this episode begins coverage of a new side title featuring Supergirl from Earth 2, trapped with Robin on a parallel world and forced to take on the new costumed identities of Power Girl and the Huntress. We also stop briefly on Earth 2 itself to see the fate of their home and its Superman. All this and your emails too!
Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, “we” being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman and J. David Weter of PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Green Lantern’s Light.
