In the requests thread, [personal profile] thatnickguy asked about this oddball cover:



I thought I'd go ahead and post a few pages from the story, since (for once) things happen pretty much exactly the way they're shown on the cover. And Elliot S! Maggin's Luthor is always worth posting.

"He's a character that represents freedom. He's the guy that was the slave. He was chained and now he's free to do whatever he wants. Initially with Silver Surfer stories there was that limitation that he couldn't leave Earth because Galactus had trapped him there. So here he was a former slave, but he was now imprisoned, and the second you break through that barrier you've got the most cosmic hero of all. He's the guy who can go anywhere and everywhere. The whole universe is open to him and there's something very liberating about that. We've all had that feeling in our lives. It's like when you first get the car or when you leave home and now you're your own person and you can do your own thing." - Dan Slott

This imprint barely had any new titles at all!

...that is, until just recently...

You know who REALLY disliked "Superman as government stooge"? The creative teams on the Superman books at the time! Jerry Ordway said in the "From Crisis to Crisis" Superman podcast that he want to make it clear Superman ISN'T one to follow orders blindly.

Lies and corruption. )
