Superman Forever Radio 30- September 2007


This week, a change back to the old format is coming, a LIVE episode of Superman Forever Radio is on it’s way Sunday May 29, 2011, and David is testing out some new waters.

But, as far as the books cover dated September 2007:

It’s Jimmy Olsen week, as Action Comics 852 features a story within a story. Jimmy explores the world of super-powers, as Superman takes out the Kryptonite Man. And, a flashback reveals the origin of Jimmy’s signal watch.

The Jimmy Olsen train makes another stop in Superman 665, where we see the secret origin of Jimmy, which will be ret-conned out by Secret origin.

And, finally, what is making Superman lose his mind with fear? It could be a certain villain who uses fear as a motif, but you would only be half right. Superman/Batman 38 Brings us the answer, and a New God falls. Literally.
