Superman #190 had a great moment of Random Ray Usage (tm!), don't you think?
Yeah, the kid got hit as well, and that was part of the plot, but I didn't follow it very closely. You'd think that Detective Comics would have had complicated plots, but they couldn't hold a candle to what went on in Superman Comics.

But he's fighting creatures he simply calls Earth, Air, Fire and Water. This, of course, naturally made me think of this:
Cue the next issue where:
Yeah. Superman loses his powers again. From Random Ray Usage (tm!), which seems to be the favored plot device.
And, for the umpteenth time, we have an imaginary story:
But, yeah... there is a Random Spanking (tm!), so there's that.
And guess what happens in this imaginary story?
See? Even in an imaginary story, Clark's own son recognizes that Batman is simply cooler. I've got some Superman artwork hanging up in my office (the covers to numbers to issues 5, 24, 38 and 76) that look all kinds of awesome, but no one can deny the awesomeness of Batman.
Here's a CMNS Moment of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)
And fetch me some long pants! And a cape of proper length!
Why would I show you a shot of a newsreel showing Superman fighting Titano the Super-Ape?
Because it's TITANO the SUPER-APE!

In 1967, a first issue of Action Comics was a hundred bucks? YIKES! Can you imagine?
See you tomorrow!
