"Can you read my mind? Do you know what it is you do to me?"

David just sent this Action Comics cover to me and y'all... what the fuck?!?

This passes Superdickery. This moves well into the realm of To Catch a Predator.

"To Catch a Kryptonian Predator?!?" Chris Hanson better go to Addis Ababa and get him a piece of green meteorite, tout de suite.

Now, on the actual cover of Action Comics #457, the little boy has a few word balloons and is saying something to Clark / Kal-el / SuperPerv.

But doesn't the image just say it all?

I probably picked up this copy of Action Comics in '76, read it and kept it under my pillow. What little six year old gay boy wouldn't want to see Clark Kent at the foot of his bed stripping down to his Superman togs with that look on his face?

Okay, maybe EVERY six year old gay boy wouldn't want that, but I certainly did!!

The only question is, are those tears of pain, or perhaps joy?

I vote the latter.

david - I'm going with joy as well. Followed years later with sporadic bouts of insanity.

Come on. Margot Kidder. One night with Superman in the silver lamè bed inside the Fortress of Solitude and she went batshit crazy for awhile.

(And by "batshit," I'm in no way connecting her with Batman. Although, that would be a hot three way)

Batman does it much better--or at least, has better taste in boys. Speaking of which--not related to Supes, but I thought you'd get a kick out of it:

tina - I'm not sure where you get all of these, but I love that you send 'em to me!!!! Nightwing calling Robin gay. That's the pot calling the kettle a Bat-Pole Smoker, isn't it?

First of all...."Can you read my mind" is the only definite in my songlist for THAT DAY when I eventually marry...

second of all, I'm not sure what's scarier: Tina suggesting that link or you knowing the two masked boys from the clavicle-up...

I love that Superman cover! My wet dream come true!

Iphthime said...

knowing the two masked boys from the clavicle-up... Ok, I bring you the talented art of Cris.

Nightwing and Robin, clavicles and all.
