8) SUPERMAN RED/SUPERMAN BLUE

superman-red-blue
Some people like to list ‘Superman Red/Superman Blue’ as an example of how dumb Silver Age comics used to be.

Those people are WRONG.  Seeking to finally overcome all his challenges at once, Superman accidentally splits himself into two beings, each even more intelligent than the original.  They revert Kandor to its original size, rebuild their home world, conquer disease, and even manage to fix the “Lois Vs. Lana” question.  It’s an example of a really clever “Imaginary Story” (the term for an Elseworlds before it was called Elseworlds.)

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
