Did you know that Byrne's Lois believes that the Kents raised Clark Kent and Superman as brothers?

Did you know that Big Barda and Superman made a porn movie because some Fourth World refugee thought that is the best thing to do when you have two powerful heroes mind-controlled?

Did you know that the whole Byrne's run is very bad and very painful to read, especially these days?

Amazing that people defend that kind of ****. Must be childhood nostalgia or that they confuse the things that came after Byrne with the stuff Byrne created.
Did you ever notice that those are largely just your opinions of John Byrne's material, and that opinions differ? Surprise, there are people who like things that you don't.

Also, Big Barda and Superman resisted against Sleez's mind-control and didn't actually do anything other than a kiss, which is not pornographic at all, and was a display of Superman's inner strength and strong moral fibre.

And I don't have a problem with Ma and Pa Kent telling Lois that they raised both Clark and Superman, which in fact they did.

Half-man, half-bat.

You've convinced me. Well played, sir. It's great to debate with someone who has the hard facts to back up what they say
