Since the Silver Age Superman has always had a strict code against the taking of life. This one principle is so central to his character that when he accidentally killed a villain in Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow he immediately stripped himself of his powers and hung up his cape.

It is with this in mind that I show you what is perhaps the most controversial Superman story of all time, The Supergirl Saga, which depicted the only canonical instance where Superman ever killed someone in cold blood, and also featured the first appearance of Supergirl in post-Crisis continuity.

Once upon a time Lex went down an all-consuming path, the Joker became a little serious to check him, someone died for a quick joke, and the stuff of power rings was involved.

Yes, it's.. the Joker's ongoing's seventh, whose cover featured its protagonist in peril (as opposed to imperiling or merely contending with the monthly antagonist.)

And which began, in two ways, in media res. )

Time once again for you to pester your fellow SDers with requests.

Once a month we will have a requests post where members can ask for certain scans to be posted. Other members seeking inspiration can look through the requests and fulfill someone's dream. Posting a request is no guarantee of its being filled, but request posts will be archived so that members can look through comments from previous months and answer them if they so desire.

So Scans Daily, what do you want?

As per the lazyreader's request (how do I put a person's name as a link anyway) for some 80's and 90's events I bring you all the first part of the Bloodlines event that ran in 1993.

For those completely unacquainted with the event it basically was a series that ran in every DC annual at the time and introduced one or more new characters in each story these members were called the New Bloods. After running in each annual the series concluded in a two part mini in Bloodbath.

But I'll explain a little more in depth in the issue itself so as to not give away the entire idea of the event and these new characters.

Here in Lobo's annual we meet purple haired spaceship Captain Toronga Layla.

18 pages plus the cover from an over sized 56 page story.

It came from outer space! )

In case anyone was still under the impression that Adam Beechen bothers to understand the basic properties of the characters he chooses to write, here is another example that may help to disabuse you of that notion.

Three of eight pages from the ZATANNA #9 backup. )

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. )

On a more positive note, while digging through my "things to post" folder I found these fun little pages from Liberty Comics, a 2008 special that Image put out to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (a nonprofit dedicated to protecting comics creators from censorship and legal abuse). A number of big-name creators contributed stories of varying lengths and quality; these are my favorites.

Talented polemic under the cut. )

Following on from [personal profile] thelazyreader 's post about Superman's execution of the Phantom Zone criminals here, I thought this might be a timely post, courtesy of Karl Kesel and Peter Dogerty in Issue 7 of the 1999 World's Finest Maxi-series

As per [personal profile] ravenous_raven 's request; "Death Talks About Life"

This was released as a giveaway for use in American high schools, so I don't see a problem with posting the whole thing. If Mods feel otherwise, let me know.

Banana's can be FUN! )
