So, I'm reading Superman #201 and you'd think, what with this being the 201st issue, that this would be a start of a whole new era for the title.
Yes, Clark is cutting out the middleman and just putting himself in a situation where he has no powers.
But, to be fair, he first fights a giant forearm:
Okay, that's pretty awesome, but I'd think the creature would take a lot of eye injuries, considering the location and whatnot.
Anyway, Clark leaves Earth because of guilt over this:
Well, to be fair, the guy would have been a goner if he had stuck around because we all know that no one learns Superman's secret and lives. The guy might not have been crushed a boulder, but he certainly would have fallen off something. Something tall.
This was mildly interesting. And by "mildly interesting," I mean "complete and utter shenanigans:"
So, Superman has lost his "super brain," but he's still able to create a fully functioning robot that borders on sentience. Hmmph.
But the rest of the story is pretty consistent with what we expect to see in what is all-too-common plot device in Superman Comics:
Kromn would probably just say, "You mean I beat up Superman who didn't have his powers. Wow, that puts me at a physical prowess level of Lex Luthor."
You know, I did miss that issue and I've got to say that there have been times things didn't go just swimmingly for me. I'm starting to see the connection.
See you tomorrow!
