Given the story focus in the end of this arc was pretty much not on Superman, at least directly, I'm not sure if this really counts as a Dude in Distress post... But hey, Ninja Fighting!

7 1/3 pages from a 22 page story. Man, cutting this one was hard. REALLY. HARD. I loved this story so much.

Here's my feeble attempt Dudes in Distress Week. I actually wracked my brains trying to think of a good story to post and having wanted to post this story for a while it stood out to me.

What happens when Superman falls into a near death state? Who can save the day? Part 1 of 3.

7 pages from a 22 page story.

Back in 1997, Marvel did Flashback Month, where all the titles (except the HEROES REBORN titles) were given #-1 issues, all set some time before the fateful rocket flight that created the Fantastic Four. (I don't know if there was an exact number of years.) Artist Gene Colan and writer Joe Kelly wrote of Matt Murdock's arrival at college and when he first met Foggy Nelson.

You can say a heck of a lot about Jonathan Kent. Here's two pages of Clark Kent doing so.

I once mentioned in the comments about Deadpool having been raped, and I had a couple of puzzled reactions in answer by people who didn't remember it. So I thought I could do a post about it:


(3 pages from Deadpool issue #12, 5 pages from Deadpool issue #13)


That was back in Joe Kelly's glorious run, and Deadpool was going through a rough time with trying to help Typhoid Mary which didn't really turn out how he wanted and then turned out a little bit ugly, fighting T-Ray who had a big grudge against him, and LL&L expecting him to be the heroic Mithra who will protect a prophesied Messiah, which he thought was pretty absurd; so he did something he was prone to do back then: going to Siryn, with whom he had a weird romantic friendship and a very big crush, for comfort. Instead of finding Siryn, he found Warpath, and a fight ensued, with the result that when Siryn actually arrived on the scene she was not really in the mood of hearing Wade talk about his issues and they had a pretty bad argument (including Wade being overbearing and aggressive) and Siryn walked away.


So Deadpool got drunk.

With the death of Elizabeth Taylor, people mention her purple eyes. And that reminds me of someone in the DCU who also has purple eyes, at least since the start of SUPERMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES. Lois Lane.

The "General Zod from Polkistan" story in ACTION COMICS was a puzzler for a while, and not just because of his name. First because, when Superman confronted him during "Our Worlds at War" he said "What are you going to do... kill me?" Second, Bizarro saw Zod without his helmet and told Superman "Him look like you!" Superman said "So... he doesn't look like me?" Superman was really concerned over a foe who seemed to know about that time he killed those Pocket Universe Kryptonians.

The blackness calls itself Zod. )

Continuing from my last post, here are some scans from the second half of JLA: Trial by Fire by Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke.



Recap: A powerful telepath has been manipulating people across the world to forcibly put an end to its problems, lobotomizing criminals and making world leaders peacefully resolve all their disputes. With the Martian Manhunter in an oddly weakened state, the Justice League is left defenceless from assault. Ultimately it becomes clear that their formidable opponent is a Martian, and in fact, none other than J'onn J'onnz himself, now turned into a monstrous being calling himself Fernus.
Get your sorry motherless Martian thorax back in the water! )

To conclude my focus on the Martian Manhunter, I present to you arguably the most pivotal J'onn-centric story in recent times: Trial by Fire. This ran from JLA #84-89 and concluded Joe Kelly's run on the title. This is collected in trades and is one of my all-time recommendations for best JLA stories.



Ever wonder why the most powerful member of the League could be defeated by something as common as fire?

I have a question about "Spider-Man lore." When was it first established that Peter Parker lived and attended high school in Forest Hills, Queens? AMAZING FANTASY #15 or later?

Twice (if not more) on interviews he gave on Friday, Mad Men's Jon Hamm talked about how the Internet rumor mill wants him to play Superman. Hamm said he's "aged out" of playing Superman, unless they want to show how Clark Kent gets great parking. (In a slightly related story, Christina Hendricks of Mad Men will voice Lois Lane in the animated adaptation of ALL-STAR SUPERMAN.)
But even if he doesn't play Kal-El, to me, Jon Hamm might have a place in the next Superman movie.
