I Summon Superman to Investigate All Giant Multicolored Eggs!

Checking in on Action Comics with #303:

Okay, first: I would regret ever having given Jimmy that signal watch, because he seems to think Superman is at his beck and call.  And, in fairness to Jimmy, Superman rarely reminds him that this is supposed to be an emergency device only.

Second: Ace needs a new nickname.  I don't blame the man for not wanting to put himself in dangerous situations, but you no longer get a badass nickname like "Ace" when you are afraid of landing your helicopter somewhere, earthquake or not.

It scares you, Jimmy?  It's just a big red egg!

Those are possibly the most phallic-shaped spaceships ever developed in the known universe, which has a glut of phallic-shaped spaceships.  NO one noticed this?  Not the inker, the colorist, the letterer, the editor?  NO one? 

By showing me something disturbing?  Okay, take your best shot:


That is so wrong.  First, Linda isn't his foster sister.  Linda was adopted by the couple looking on with perverse pleasure, so this is her brother and that is seriously messed up.  Just... EW!

See you tomorrow!

How interesting. Look at this gif from the Man of Steel movie and compare it to that panel that you posted of the rockets that take the eggs away from Krypton.

Also this was two years after the film Mothra.

"The eggs are being launched in containers to a warm, uninhabited planet!"

"Hey... one just landed on a warm, inhabited planet in the Sol system."

"You didn't see anything."
