The Superman Revenge Squad attempts to lure the Man of Steel into an other-dimensional trap with a Clark Kent android.


This time out, we’ll be getting into DC Comics Presents #33. We’ll start this episode with some Listener Feedback and then go straight to the “Russell’s Comic Brag” segment.  I will be presenting another “extra long” Spotlight for Superman’s Guest, Shazam! Our “Whatever Happened To..?” changes to “Whatever Will Happen To..?” for this one episode. There, we will delve into the character Star Hawkins where I will have a Spotlight Extra on him as well as the story itself.  SORRY..I had to create another Hostess Ad. And finally, we will take a trip to the Comic Spinner Rack.

One comment on “Episode #33: DC Comics Presents #33 (Superman & Shazam!)

  1. Superman & Captain Marvel (Not Shazam, as you pointed out. He’s the wizard!) make a great team. I really enjoyed this episode, and look forward to the next one, continuing (completing?) the story. Thanks for the two different “Shazam”s, and the Jim Nabors song in the background. I hadn’t heard that one before. It’s odd to hear Jim Nabors singing in his “Gomer Pyle” voice. Usually his singing voice was quite different from his speaking voice.
    At one point in this episode, you wondered whether the Rock of Eternity was on Earth-1 or Earth-S. I don’t know for certain, but I always got the impression that the Rock of Eternity was sort of outside of time and space, and acted as a bridge between different parts of the DC Multiverse, accessible from and to the various different Earths. That’s just my two-cents-worth, and that’s probably all it’s worth. Also, at one point, Captain Marvel thinks that Superman is being “chauvinistic”, and you wondered if that was quite the right word. Since you’re probably “of a certain age”, as I am, you likely associate that word with the phrase “male chauvinist pig”, or just “male chauvinist”, but originally, it meant excessively and prejudicially nationalistic or patriotic, or excessively and prejudicially loyal to one’s own cause or group, so I think that second meaning might apply to Captain Marvel’s reaction to Superman at that point in the story, since Superman seemed to regard Captain Marvel’s powers as less than his own.
