Seems like DC comic book fans are universally and deliriously singing the praises of the Infinite Crisis series. It's a fun read with some cool moments, and neat thematic elements exploring the nature of "hero-ness", but just for one moment, imagine how stupid the plot would sound if you were trying to explain it to a casual fan.
"So the Superman from Earth-2, the Superboy of Earth Prime, and Alexander Luthor of Earth-3 escaped from their pocket universe to ours. Superman and Superboy are killing all the heroes and Luthor is using his dimensional tuning fork thingy to realign the multiverse! You have to see the fight between our Superman and Earth-2 Superman!" Or equally ludicrous is any sentence that begins with, "So the Psycho-Pirate..."
Anyhow, as today's strip illustrates, I always knew that the pre-Crisis goody two-shoes old-school Superman was an unhinged murdering bastard.
