DEAD AGAIN continues!
Mike and Jeff close out cover date December 1994 with parts seven and eight of Dead Again. First up is Adventures of Superman #518 where Superman travels to Apokolips and there is a lot of fighting. Then in Action Comics #705 an at the end of his rope Man of Steel believes he has found the man or rather imp from the fifth dimension responsible for the supposedly real but probably fake dead body that has been causing Superman so much grief. Following this the boys look at both Steel #10 and Metropolis: SCU #2, which they have some serious mixed feelings on. After discussing what else was going on in the DCU that month Mike and Jeff dive into two more episodes of the second season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman; Church of Metropolis, which introduces Intergang to the series and Operation: Blackout, which has a friend of Lois pop back up with hilarity supposedly ensuing.
Next Time: Dead Again continues in Superman: The Man of Steel #40 and Superman #96. The boys will also briefly discuss Superboy #11 and Guardians of Metropolis #3.

Dan: Superman has two missions here.
The first is to handle the effects of natural disasters, mitigating them when possible, while also dealing with large-scale accidents like bridge collapses and airliner crashes.
But he's also using the knowledge he has of villains on his world to try to prevent them from emerging here. There are great differences between these two universes, however, and a villain on his world isn't necessarily a villain on this one.
A Superman balloon first featured in the parade in 1939. The balloon was so large it needed to be handled by 50 people.
However the same Superman balloon didn't fair too well a year later in 1985.
While Superman hasn't appeared in the parade for quite a few years, and isn't in this year's parade, it should be noted that the 1980's Superman balloon is the largest Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon ever, measuring 104 feet in length!

In the 1990s morals seemed to be less important in comic books. I saw superheroes slowly detaching from what they were founded on. I had a plan to change this "Superman's Book of Morals" a bedtime story book geared toward children's most formidable years, 3-7. This book could be read over and over to children to show them that morals are important. And, who better to tell them what being a real hero is all about than the most beloved superhero of all time?
I believed becoming Superman on screen would put me in a great position to teach children values through superheroes, and I set out to do so. When I lost the part of Superman/Clark Kent to friend Dean Cain for the TV series Lois and Clark, I felt down but not out. I visited Dean on the set of Lois and Clark, and tried to get him interested in motivating kids through superheroes, but he wasn't going for it.
Soon after, I pitched Superman's Book of Morals to DC Comics Superman editor Mike Carlin, who I had met working as a stand-in for Mr. Freeze on the film Batman and Robin. I did the art for a proposal book. It was crude, but I didn't have the resources to hire a professional artist. DC Comics had many fantastic artists, and I had a few in mind.
A short time later I received a rejection letter from DC Comics. They informed me they were working on something similar. I understood. A book did come out, but it was geared toward young teens and focused on one issue. After I saw it, I felt sick. I had failed. I felt like I let down a lot of children and parents. If only my art were better, or if only I had sold myself better.
