Superman Forever Radio 38- The Fourth World

This week’s episode begins the first of two parts that look at the Superman comics on shelves cover dated December, 2007.

First up, Superman must contend with the Bizarro Justice League in Action Comics #857 by Geoff Johns, Richard Donner, and Eric Powell.

Then, the search for the third Kryptonian begins in Superman #668, and the answers will surprise you.

And that leads us to the second part of a look at Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Characters, from Highfather to Granny Goodness, and even the motherbox.

Which leads perfectly into Superman/Batman #41, and a showdown with Darkseid, Batman’s inner feelings, and a mind-controlled Superman in Superman/Batman #41.

And then, how did Metropolis end up under water? What is the secret to Lori Lemaris‘ power over the man of steel? Find out in Superman Confidential #7.

All of this, and a look at Lana Lang‘s return in Superman: The Animated Series.
