I guess this series of old Supes covers have been making the rounds over the last couple of days or so, but I have to ask. Are these things real? Some of them are hilarious.

Without knowing too much about the comics, I'd say they fit the Julius Schwartz formula of coming up with an outlandishly implausible cover image to inspire writers to come up with creative stories. DC comics with such covers almost always depict something completely impossible and unbelievable, and Superman being a dick is definitely at the top of that list, which is it appears on so many covers.

I have to admit, it's a great marketing concept, because decades later, I see these covers and desperately want to buy the comics and find out why on earth Superman's being such a dick.

Yeah, these are for real. They've talking about this for the past few months over at DVDVR. I actually had a few of these when I was a young lad that my uncle gave me from HIS collection. Of course, Superman never really said this stuff IN the comic, but it was a great SHOCKING selling point to get the consumer to buy the issue.
As for Superman being a dick, you should check out this site:
http://rzeznikrocks.proboards7.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&num=1098570017
For the past 8-9 years, this guy has walked around my hometown in his Superman suit, usually standing on the corner of the busiest street in town (which coincidentally is 1 block from where I work AND next door to the Dairy Queen)with his boombox blaring the Superman theme, complete with huge flag stuck on the fire hydrant. Every once in a while, his pals SpiderMan, Batman and Wonder Woman join him. All he does is stand there with his hands on his hips, chest stuck out, saluting people who honk at him and flipping the bird to people who mock him. (Here's an article on him complete with pics: http://news.minnesota.publicradio.org/features/200111/19_horwichj_upandaway-m/ )
This guy has restraining orders against him by about half the establishments in town, including the local state college. It sure as hell is funny to see him standing there, but the guy ain't right. THIS Superman is a dick, for real.

Something funny about the Lois Lane series, 9 out of 10 covers made her look or sound stupid... and it was HER SERIES! The Jimmy Olsen series as well. Also, this was around the time they tried to remind everyone that Superman wasn't always the big blue cheese boy scout. Don't forget, early in his career, he shook down criminals for loot only because he could.

My favorite out of the bunch has to be this one, if only for the caption they give it...



List of more pratical uses Superboy can make of a machine that can see through time:

1) Betting on the outcomes of sporting events.
2) Forseeing natural diasters and catastrophhe.
3) Letting Bruce Wayne know that his parents are going to be gunned down in front of his very eyes in a filthy alley, you dick.

Yeah, Cerebus, that one's my favorite too. Really, though, they're all pretty funny. He really does look happy when he's killing Lois Lane.

I am all for the return of the multiverse, but hope we get some clarification soon as to who exactly is on each Earth. The Marvels appear to have their own Earth, but they have been heavily involved with 52. Are they not the same Marvels?
