Episode 58- Apocalypse Commentary


Superman Forever goes to the movies month continues- this time with the second team-up between The Man of Steel, and The Dark Knight– as well as Wonder Woman, and Supergirl.

Though the title plays down the fact, this tale features the trinity of DC Superheroes as they Shepard the young Kara Zor-El toward her destiny as Supergirl.

Featuring an all-star cast, and based on a story by Jeph Loeb, and Michael Turner art- join me in watching and discussing the film.

To celebrate- I am covering one of the greatest Superman stories ever told– Superman For All Seasons.

Superman Forever Radio 44- Superman Vs Shazam!


This time, it’s the Man of Steel taking on The World’s Mightiest Mortal in a series of classic tales, including the first appearance of Captain Marvel.

Then, it’s on to the treasury edition Superman Vs Shazam! from DC’s Bronze age which brings Superman and Captain Marvel face to face with their greatest enemies, but can the heroes stop fighting each other long enough to save their worlds?

And, another episode of Superman: The Animated Series featuring a creature from beyond, and it’s destructive force is on it’s way to Metropolis.

As a bonus, I also recorded a commentary track for the animated short SUPERMAN AND SHAZAM!: THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM, which you can download here.

Superman Forever Radio 43- Man of Plastic


album043Welcome back. The show hits on on cylinders, returning to a weekly schedule.

This time, we take a trip down memory lane to look at Kenner’s Superman: Man of Steel line of action figures.

With many variations on Superman aside, the line was the first dedicated to Superman himself, and not the DC Universe as a whole.

This is one of the most unscripted episodes ever, and features some horrible accidents with firing missiles that justify the fears felt by parents about the firing Boba Fett backpack.

Also, we pick up the second half of the second season premiere of Superman; The Animated Series, with “Blasts from the Past Part 2″.
