The Electric Superman Blue era began with the storyline “Power Shift,” which was published in 1997. Of all the strange transformations Superman has undergone in his entire history, none has been quite so derided as the year when his familiar costume and powers were replaced with a blue and white “containment suit” and a tenuous relationship with electricity. This week, we start with a look at the stories that led to Superman’s new look, how he turned red and why Jason loves this era so much.
