Mess Not With Bronze Age Superman!

Infinite Crisis gives us back the Old School Superman, if only for a while.

The "Old Superman" of the series seems to be an amalgam of old Supes-es: the Golden Age Two-Fisted New Deal Hero; the Silver Age Lois-Taunter; and a character who has been nearly ignored--the Superman of my own youth, the Bronze Age Supes.

This last version should not be forgotten or brushed aside. Oh no.

Mess not with Bronze Age Superman.

Not only would he administer the pimp slap to those who merited such disdain...

At least once, he took on the devils of hell itself. And not only did he beat them, as he did so he talked a tasty line of smack.

Beating the devil is admittedly a Mighty Feat. But Bronze Age Superman took it to another level, both theologically and whoopassedly...

He punched out angels.

And kept talking smack.

I halfway expect to someday find a comic hiding amidst the longboxes that shows him punching God in the neck.

Mess not with the Bronze Age Superman. He will end you.

I like that he was even handed, devils slap em and taunt em, angels slap em and taunt em. You are right, that is one bad mother.

I had that devil-angel comic - IIRC, the angels were the real bad guys and the devils were the I-thought-they-were-bad guys, so Superman got to smack them both around.

Around that same time, in another issue, there was one classic panel I recall: Superman hovering in front of some ocean-going bad guys (pirates?) and pointing at his emblem with his thumb, saying "See this? Do you know what this means?" Wow.

That era's Superman, drawn by Swan, is the template in my mind for the character. The Golden Age is twelve, right?

I thought Supes wrestling Asmodel in Grant Morrison's JLA run was cool, but...jeez...

One thing you can hold against Morrison; he doesn't talk shit nearly as well as he ought to. I'd like to see Bronze Age Superman and the Rock have an insult off. That would be cool. Until Bronze Age Supes karate chopped poor Rocky in the neck.
