"An anti-evil ray? But Blue, what about free will? If you take that away from people, can they truly remain human?"

"Ha ha ha! Silly Red. This is a Silver Age story. Ethics and other philosophical matters have no place here."

I'd want to see current Justice League do a Space Jam into this era. It'll be a nightmare.

It's pretty much storytelling delivered via tommy gun, intended less to entertain and more to leave you reeling and bewildered.

Oh, I for one am definitely bewildered.

I like how both Supermen don't actually see Earth as their home, despite having lived there their entire lives.
Ungrateful dick.
(His lack of... well, "humanity" for want of a better phrase is kind of one Silver Age Superman's least appealing traits. Right after the Superdickery.)

Also, rendering crime utterly impossible and having robots to police all disasters would surely put every other hero out of a job. Not Silver Age Superman's problem, though.

The most powerful antibiotic ever... that cures blindness and baldness.

Even for comic book science...

(At least this didn't end with Lois somehow humiliated.)

Yeah, as far-fetched and devoid of conflict as is this story (the latter so much so that it barely qualifies as a "story" at all), it's a refreshing change from "Lois (and sometimes Lana) as buttmonkey" stuff.

Plus Lex's intellect wasn't boosted the way the Supermen's were. Meaning he could have invented his miracle cure at any time, thus making him more popular than Superman, rich beyond all measure, and he'd even have his hair back. Damn it, Lex.

As Superman told him moments before leaving Earth in All-Star Superman: "You could have saved the world years ago if it mattered to you, Luthor."

Hey, she has to live on New Krypton and ... wear a scandalously short dress!

Thanks for posting this. I'd heard of the story, but I didn't expect this much nonsense. Did you specifically pick, "Nothing works that way," pages?

The ultimate Silver Age crack. It's too bad there's a page limit, because there's so much more good stuff in this story.

(the page with Superman's "Things to do" list is ... the crackiest)

Lucy KNOWS her sister. No WAY Lois is satisfied living on New Krypton with JustKal and the twins!
