Happy Friday Superfans, and welcome back for a new week of Superman themed action and adventure!
This week, the Man of Steel shares the spotlight with the badass swift and powerful monarch of the oceans aka Mr. Boffo Box Office Biz himself, Aquaman!
This week’s Beach Report:
-Superman: The Man of Steel (1991-2003) #48
-Superman (1986-2006) #'s 162 and 163
-Superman: The Animated Series S3: E9 “A Fish Story”
- During Superman #'s 162 and 163, Lex Luthor is running for the office of President of the United States. Aquaman takes Lex into custody, which then puts Superman in the unenviable position of having to rescue his greatest foe from the King of the Seven Seas.
Do you side with Superman in why he rescued Lex, or would you have left Mr. Luthor to rot down in The Abyss?
- What do you think of the DCAU Aquaman’s debut in this episode of STAS?
He’s voiced by Miguel Ferrer (son of actor Jose Ferrer), who had ample DC credits on his resume. Mr. Ferrer also played Bob Jones in 1987’s Robocop, which co-starred actor Kurtwood Smith, another DC voice acting stalwart.
- In this week’s schtuff, which look of Aquaman’s do you prefer? The classic orange and green togs from STAS or the long haired, hook hand 1990’s and into the early 2000’s ensemble (Stanley Godspeed would later inform John Mason that this look was a “grunge thing”) ?
That’s it for this week. Grab a box of fish flavored deep fried goodness from Long John Silver’s and settle in for some Kryptonian and Atlantean based fun!
