    "An idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture," that is the definition of a meme. There's no rhyme or reason to a meme, but they tend to inhabit the LCD of thought, which can make them troublesome to shake. The meme for Injustice is that Regime Superman is a mass murderer, only he hasn't murdered anyone but the Joker and Green Arrow. He killed them, never stood trial, and never performed any expiation for his actions. However, that doesn't make him, as Constantine is quick to say, and, more than likely, too many readers want to believe as they submit to the throes of PIS, a mass murderer. The kills that Regime has made, aside of the Joker, have occurred in battle. Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Captain Atom, Ganthet, Mogo, and the rest, were all doing their best to kill Regime or Wonder Woman. Where did the mass murder take place? It's bad enough when meme's are created in real life, with the point of furthering some incorrect goal, but it's really bad when a reader has to suffer through it on account of the writer pushing an ill-constructed agenda.

December 4, 2014: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 176th episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

One Man. Two Worlds. And The End Of All There Is...

The boys are back...back again...FCTC is back...tell a friend.

Well this looks like a job for Mike and Jeff, so everyone just follow...them. Or something.

Anyway, the boys are back with another exciting episode. After a quick e-mail and discussion on just how much the Post Crisis Superman comics are worth they finish out the Super books that had a July 1994 cover date. In SUPERMAN #91 we follow a rich man and a homeless man as they go through a morality play in the ruins of Metropolis. Then in ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #514 Superman and other people in Metropolis start having vivid hallucinations! Plus, Professor Hamilton loses a limb! Then, in ACTION COMICS #701 it is Superman vs. a Kryptonian Battle Armor wearing Lex as the now nearly dead Luthor makes his final play against the Man of Steel. This is followed by Mike and Jeff looking at the ads, what else was going on in the DC Universe and what was going on in the real world when these comics came out in a segment they like to call Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet!

Next time: The final two episodes of the first season of LOIS AND CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN plus a special mystery interview with a cast member from the first season!

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.

December 3, 2014: Dan DiDio Discusses "Convergence"Print

Lois and Superman Dan DiDio sat down for a DC All Access video chat to discuss "Convergence", the two-month event that will take place across April-March 2015, which will revisit some of the pre-New 52 comic book characters and stories.

"Our tagline at the start was, 'Where do worlds go when they die?' But it's a lot more than that. It's examining the essence of heroism. Every chance that you would have to give up our heroes find a reason to rise up and fight that occasion," he said. "And when you get a chance to work with these characters, with these interpretations, and put them side by side, in one grand epic, I don't think you'll ever find a better expression of heroism than this book."
