Is Silver Age best Age?
I'm sorry, friend. I hope one day you find yourself able to enjoy batshit silver age comics.
Aww yeah, I missed these threads.
What's wrong anon? You don't like fun?
I think of reading Silver Age comics like reading the Bible or the Odyssey or some other ancient text that's mutated everywhere. You won't find artistic coherence or character motivations that make sense, but you've got all the history of modern culture encoded into the stories.
So it doesn't really matter that Superman stories from the '50s make no sense, what matters is that they're full of crazy ideas that have become the basis for every Superman story since then.
Reading some of the early Marvel stuff, like the first Spider-Man story, is almost like reading a holy religious text that everyone has interpreted and re-interpreted through the ages.
I feel that is an astute observation, my main muh fucka.
Anybody have the page of Luthor imagining if he became Superman's Dad?
And there're people that don't love namor.
i can barely enjoy how capeshit made in the 2000's look.its not the scripts its just that im not a fan of panels looking like tv shows or movies.it feels too slow in the wrong places.
Comicsalliance may be a shithole, but they put out some awesome mock-Silver Age covers
Without Silver Age GL I'd never have known that God has a giant star hand.
>...That if we ever learned the truth about our secret origins, we and our universe would be instantly destroyed
Is it just a coincidence that this concept was in Hitchhiker's? Has the idea been around longer than either work?
I'm gonna post some Hal being stupid/clumsy/unlucky. Not sure what exactly qualifies as Silver-Age, but I assume some of these do.
I know this is from a dictionary, but I'm just gonna assume Hal did something tremendously stupid here and the reader just doesn't get to see what it is.
Is this seriously John Stewart's origin story?
>Luthor kidnaps a woman
>Kills the original
>Does something to the clone so that if Superman touches her, they'll both be sent to another dimension with no way back
>Brainwashes himself into forgetting all this, becoming good, and falling in love with the cloned woman
>Cures basically all diseases, establishes world peace, is the greatest hero the world has ever known
>Marries the clone
>Makes Superman his best man
>Allows Superman to kiss his wife because apparently the best man kissing the wife is some tradition that no one's ever heard of?
>Superman does it, but flies away before he can be sent to the other dimension, without anyone seeing him
>As soon as this happens, Luthor's robots drag him back to his lair and un-brainwash him
>He becomes evil again and is miserable because the woman he loved is gone
>All just to get rid of Superman, who survived anyway
>Also, Superman was for some reason totally fine with sending the clone to another dimension and allowing Luthor to become evil again
That was the most bizarre storytime I've seen. Anyone know the name of the issue?
If this isn't exactly how Infinity War Part 2 ends, I'm gonna throw a fit.
This is for real? Holy shit.
40 aren't even enough
Superman, you could have aimed your sneeze literally anywhere. Why did you choose to destroy a solar system that used to hold life? I know aliens are common in your universe, but I'm sure anthropologists would still want to study the remains of these ones.
510 and 512 even have Superidckery covers that lie about the events of the comic.
Luthor was totally okay with the kiss in the comic itself.
He REALLY didn't think things through, did he?
It's from the Super Dictionary. You know it as the source of pic related
Uploading now, it might take a while. In the meantime, Hal has a weird duck obsession
Jeez, Aquaman, he's trying his best. Go easy on him.
Have they announced who's playing The Wall in Civil War yet?
Who is the mysterious Mighty Maid? Let's find out.
I still believe the aliens were not real. This was a ridiculously elaborate plan for Supes to trick his underage cousin into sex.
Not silver age (only just after), but there was a point in time where official catholic Archie comics were made, and they were definitely something.
How could such a pleb opinion possibly be hipster? It's like saying someone is a hipster for not liking black and white movies or only listening to music that's currently on the radio. It goes against all logic.
I knew Archie comics were always batshit insane, but what the fuck?
Come sing a song of Superman, /co/.
