Three pages from ACTION COMICS 5 and four from issue 6...







Remember, ACTION COMICS takes place at the beginning of Superman's career, so it's a time traveling Superman from the future in all the following scenes, working alongside the Legion of Superheroes.



The octopus is Erik Drekken (What, no snazzy codename, Morrison?), a villain with a pretty neat power. He's basically like Evolvo Lad from the Heroes of Lallor or Manikin from Alpha Flight, but to the nth power.



That leads into the scene that [profile] superfangirl posted, in which Superman searches his memory to find where it's wonky, in order to pinpoint the exact spot in his mind the bad guys are hiding.



Inside a tesseract in Superman's brain, the Legion successfully defeats the Anti-Superman Army and recover the kryptonite engine from them.

I can't deny that he hasn't got a point

That's a lot of negatives, and suggests that you think he's wrong.

So yeah, I do think they've worked best when they give him advice and strength as a child rather than as an adult.

Can't agree there, IMHO they worked best when they were one of his anchors to Earth and a still present moral compass for him to talk to and discuss matters with, like real parents are to grown ups all over the world.

I think Byrne's logic for still having them around was good; What offers more varied storytelling possibilities? Having the Kents dead, or having them alive?
