The Greatest J'onn J'onzz Story EVER Friday!

Yes, the Batman story in yesterday's Detective Comics #306 was all kinds of bitchin' but you know what? Someone was really pounding down the vitamins that month, because the back-up story (which I admit, I usually barely skim because I don't find J'onn J'onzz that interesting) was every bit as delicious. Shield your eyes and take it in slowly, lest your head explode from the awesomeness:

Yes, the "animals" were all big robots, but it doesn't matter. Why? Because giant animals are cool, even if they're robots. Some would argue especially if they're robots.

See you Monday!

They were Giant Criminal Animal Robots. (Bystander's description)
But they weren't InvisibleGiant Criminal Animal Robots!
What were they smoking back in the Silver Age?

Wait. You have to explain.

J'onn J'onzz got accidentally teleported to Earth, and the guy who did it hadn't built a device to send him back, and died of excitement before he could do such a thing. So J'onn J'onzz was stuck.

Except that he interacted with Superman, who could have taken him back in a matter of minutes. So…?

Really, I don't care about the giant robotic marmots. I want to know why J'onn J'onzz didn't go back.

Someone put Sheriff Joe on the job.

Were comic readers so slow in the silver age that they actually had to explain everything that was happening in the art?

I'm with "Especially if they're robots"

I'm shocked Scipio never did this one.

Why does every Silver Age DC hero sound exactly the same? Is that just me?
