Superman vs. a Mob of Monsters... including a Giant Ape! YEAH!

Yet another imaginary story from Superman #166.  Basically, it's gonna be magic, Kryptonite or imaginary.  That's how Superman comics work.

I don't know that Superman is being very honest.  I mean, if you have one kid that can fly and one can't... are you really going to love them both equally?  You can either spend your time with the flying kid or the one with poor grammar who throws tantrums.  This ain't exactly Sophie's Choice.

And that was the theme of the issue, but it turned into a "let the artist draw weird creatures" festival.  Thusly:

Not that I'm complaining.  Funky creatures are generally the most interesting thing in a Superman story and... well, giant apes are awesome.  Always.

Hey!  It's time for some Random Ray Usage! (tm!)

Followed up by a new thing we had to call:

Random Gas Usage! (tm!)

Random Gas Usage (tm!) is normally followed by something along the lines of "Gas! Choke!"  But dogs don't talk.  Unless they're hit with some Random Ray Usage (tm!) that would allow for that.

See you tomorrow!

So who is the guy who invented the freeze ray? He wears Kryptonian dress, but I don't think he can be Superman,because he wouldn't be in danger from a mere oversize dog. Or did the sun turn red somehow?

That's not Kandor, that's Krypton. Jor-El is working on the freeze ray while Kal assists him. Kal took a Legion time bubble and went to Krypton to look for an antidote to the growth ray.

I always wondered why DC toddlers talked in TontoSpeak. Or is that BizarroSpeak? The dialects were the same. Is it a story point that Super Mom's head is in shadow on the cover?

Just look at the shaking of the poor mutant dog's legs and the expression on its face, he must be thinking:

"Purple haze, all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?"

Jor-El sure knew how to grow some good strain in his lab !

Kal speaks like Bizzaro. If I were Supes, I'd get over to Star Labs for a DNA test. Maybe this whole 'love them equally' BS, might work itself out.
