Superman Says The Darndest Things – Part 8

2014/01/19

Superman isn’t defined by the big things he does when everyone’s watching. It’s the little things that most people will never hear about that really matter.

Aww. :)

Aww. :)

You know, I’d provide some context for this panel, but why ruin the Silver Age goofiness?

I wonder if Superman would come out looking like Will Smith if he used Dahr-Nel's machine?

Little known fact: one of Superman‘s lesser known powers is super-creepiness.

Trust me, you DON’T want to know where Superman’s other hand is in that second panel.

Remember how I theorized that White Kryptonite might’ve affected Superman‘s brain last time around? Well, if it did, I don’t think it ever wore off.

Or maybe it’ll trigger the Kryptonian photic sneeze reflex and result in your BLOWING OUT THE SUN.

This leap of logic has been brought to you by DC Comics Presents #58 (June 1983) by Mike W. Barr, Curt Swan, and Dave Hunt.

Considering that he just got shot near the heart with a Kryptonite bullet, I’m willing to cut Superman some slack for this one…though I don’t think Batman is going to be as generous.

The kind that DC Comics can't afford to pemanently kill off, I reckon.

When coming up with a name for your newly-formed team of superheroes, try going for something memorable.…and devoid of unfortunate implications.

Now you, too, can say that "My team is ASS!" with pride.
