    Another great episode. Random thoughts: I remember 2004 as being sort of leading to the peak of the DCU’s synthesis of the Modern Age with Silver Age concepts… like bringing back Kara Zor-El rather than adhering staunchly to The Last Son of Krypton idea… having really wacky high-end powers (Batman gets in a fist fight with Darkseid, Superman wields Kryptonite as a weapon and flies to the Source Wall, the Amazons fight an army of Doomsdays, etc) like the Silver Age.

    The bubble sort of burst with 2005’s Infinite Crisis, but right up to that point you had this hugely sprawling world of superheroes, teams, families, legacies, etc. that had been running nearly twenty years from 1986 and built up this rich lore of stories that couldn’t quite fit that perpetual sliding-five-year-timeline, so Superman and Batman were creeping upon their late thirties, the sidekicks and sidekicks, etc.

    So it’s in that context that Supergirl was brought back into the DCU (the soft-ban on Silver Ageness was lifted and we could have her and Krypto, etc. back) and introduced to all those teams and it was a kind of nice beginning of the end before the DCU moved onto something new in its next post-Infinite Crisis phase. It might be neat to build towards something like that again….

    Greetings from Chile!

    I love this podcast, it actually made me more exited to watch this series.
    I really like how you always end an episode with a phrase.
    In this episode I was hoping you would say something about Michael Turner, the artist of Superman/Batman Vol 2: Supergirl.

    I also thought that when they adapted this storyline to the animated movie they were going to dedicate it to his memory, like the comic was dedicated to Christopher Reeve.

    Anyway, I hope you can talk about Turner in the next episode since he was the one who designed the Supergirl of your first logo.

    Looking forward to the next episode!

    • We briefly touched on Michael Turner, but unfortunately, due to time, we weren’t able to go into his art in depth. I’m not crazy about how he draws Supergirl’s body, but everything else, I love.

      So glad you’re enjoying the podcast! (And we have a good time trying to come up with outros!)
