So I was reading through Superman 251-258 and was just feeling all "blah" about it. It could be because I tend to get the blues on Friday. I don't know why that is. You'd think I'd be all kinds of happy on Friday, what with the weekend coming and whatnot, but Friday is the saddest day of the week for me.
But then along comes issue #259, with the return of whom I have concluded is the most under-rated bad guy in the history of comics, if not all of literature: Terra-Man.
See? Terra-Man just brings the awesome with him wherever he goes.
I suppose I should mention there was some incredibly awful subplot going where Superman could only use his super-strength for a fraction of a second, so he basically used a disabled kid like some sort of super-power safe deposit box. When he needed strength, this happened:
Yeah. And it happened more than once.
To get that out of our head, let's go back to Terra-Man:
Terra-Man was pure badass. Yeah, he had a lot of weapons, but he was right there in the fight. No sitting in a hidden stronghold while robots and the like did all the heavy lifting. He was right in there getting his hands dirty.
Anyway, Superman cheats. And then he steals Terra-Man's technology:
Yeah, feel free to use his stuff without asking, Mr. Good Guy.
Fortunately, and thanks to Terra-Man, we wouldn't see any more drawings of Superman with the head of a lynx growing out of his noggin. I'm really not sure what that was all about and I just don't care enough to read it again. It's not like this is my job or anything.
See you tomorrow!
