I'd Sue You - - If I Was in a Suing Mood Today Thursday!

Hey, let's go where the action is... Action Comics #46, that is!

(See what I did there?)

Do you see why I don't like the character?  He's one of those guys like Captain America that will shout his own name and cheer himself when there's no one else around to do it.  I've rooted for Lex Luthor for nearly 40 years now, and I'm not switching sides any time soon.

This is one of the funniest lines I've read recently:

I think we should all work that into conversation as quickly as possible.

I'm sorry, Mr. Barnett, but we're out of corn dogs.

I'd sue you... if I was in a suing mood today!

Well, sometimes that's all you can do.

I'd work a backwards somersault into my conversation some time today as well except I couldn't do a backwards somersault on my best day ever.  I'm more of an "idea" guy.

Yeah, that's it... I'm an "idea" guy.

See you tomorrow!

Ha! What I love about Superman here is that since he is actually finishing the narrator's sentence, this suggests that Superman has actually been self-narrating his own adventures in his head, all this time.

Whay was it so important that Clark Kent strip off the last of his outer garments before he could do the super-trapeze act?

I recall a story from the 1970's called "Clark Kent Never, Superman Forever!" (at least that was the cover blurb) in which Superman was rendered powerless as long as he wore one stitch of his Clark Kent disguise. Was this something like that? Or did DC just not like the idea of a guy in a suit flying around because he couldn't find a phone booth?

Ugh, I hate my typos. "Why," I mean.

Even worse: the story was "Clark Kent Forever, Superman Never!" Dumb choice, if you ask me.

I hated how they did that on Greatest American Hero too. He was supposed to not be able to use his powers unless the suit was showing, but Katt hated wearing it so they started doing things where he could just show the tip of the sleeve to be able to pitch a 100 MPH baseball, etc.

As far as the Supes backflip in that last panel, that is kinda cool cause he is really unencumbered by gravity, why would he have to actually turn around like a normal person?
