My nominee for “Most Badass Superman Cover” – Superman #412

May 19, 2010

There’s no deep story analysis to be had here.  Let’s just say that, while Superman does go all Mola Ram/Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom on Luthor in this issue, it’s all – wait for it – a hallucination.  But still, Klaus Janson proved that he could do more than ink Frank Miller’s pencils with this cover.

And, really, who could blame Supes if he finally eviscerated Lex?  I think I could even understand him mounting Lex’s severed head on a wall in the Fortress of Solitude at this point.

    I’m imagining Superman hollaring “I will kill you!” a la Sting as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen in the Dune move adaptation 🙂
