If the nuisances from my past are coming back as killers… …what happens when the killers come back?
It was 1986, and the Silver Age of Comic Books were coming to an end.
It’s an odd feeling to remember that, since I am used to think about the Silver Age as something of the 70s, and always realizing that it ended just 4 years before reaching the 90s… it’s an odd feeling indeed.
Julius Schwartz, the now iconic editor who updated to the Silver Age so many characters like Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkman and The Atom, is a true synonym of that era, at least in the titles of DC Comics. Therefore, it was just right that Julius Schwartz would come out with the basic idea for this iconic story, that Alan Moore developed the bold narrative, along with the outstanding illustrations of Curt Swan, and the great inks of George Pérez & Kurt Schaffenberger.
It was the last story of Superman… the last story of the Silver Age of Comic Books.
And as any “last” story of an era, ending it… and bringing a new one… since nothing truly ends… just transforms… the tale is a bittersweet merging of both ages. In this case, the story contains a closure of the still campy adventure of the Silver Age, but integrating an overture of the yet dark violence of the Bronze Age to come.
The Silver Age ended yesterday and the Man of Tomorrow cried!
GOOD-BYE, SUPERMAN! WE’LL MISS YOU!
Nobody has the right to kill. – Not you, not Superman… Especially not Superman!
It’s 1997, ten years later of the last sighting of Superman.
Lois Lane got married, now she is Mrs. Jordan Elliot, and she had a child. A young reporter from the Daily Planet interviews her about her recollections of the last days of Superman…
The goofy enemies of Superman like Bizarro, The Prankster and Toyman gone berserk in an unbelievable outbreak of genocides, homicides and even suicides. And the close people to Superman were starting to get killed since his secret identity was exposed in the middle of all that crazy violence. So, the menace was clear, if the “absurd” villains were able of such gruesome acts…
…how far could go his greatest foes?
Lex Luthor, bald mad scientist (still Silver Age, remember?) is assimilated against his will, into an unholy fusion, with Brainiac’s brain, evolving him in the worst of both worlds, with a clear goal…
…to kill Superman and all his loved ones without mercy!
The Legion of Super-Villains made a time trip from the 30th Century, to have front seats in the fall of Superman, since it’s an already historic fact in their time period!
And the worst is still to come!
Superman is forced to take in, his still alive closest friends, and making a desperate last stand in his Fortress of Solitude, but even him won’t be able to save them all, since even his own safety is guaranteed!
…the tale is a bittersweet merging of both ages…
…the story contains an overture of the yet dark violence of the Bronze Age to come, but also a closure of the still campy adventure of the Silver Age.
