In Which Adam Reveals He Knows Far Too Much About Reality Television

As you've no doubt noticed, we are pretty much knee-deep in Silver Age weirdness as far as Superman Comics are concerned.  But that's okay with me whenever it involves the Super-Pets!

I had neglected to talk about it the first time, but the creators got greedy and taunted me with a second installment focused on the story of a chunk of Green Kryptonite that is sentient for no reason:

Hey!  Random Anti-Death Ray Usage!  (tm!)  Where were you yesterday when Pete Ross needed you?  

And the rock can apparently read minds.  When I was a kid, this was the kind of comic book story you prayed no one ever caught you reading... the ones that confirmed every negative connotation mainstream society had about comics.

But then you see Superman making reality television appearances, and everything's okay again.  Check it out:

I have high hopes for this reboot of Toddlers and Tiaras.

But wait!  There's more!

Next week on Master Chef...

Is it just me, or does it seem like a super lucrative business making Superman and Supergirl costumes?

Yeah, you can't get away with that sort of thing on America's Next Top Model.  You don't even want to know what secrets are revealed when Superman's gaze goes south of her neckline.

And finally...

Yup!  Shark Tank!  Take that, Kevin O'Leary!
