This episode was originally scheduled for the Week of March 31, 2010 for April Fool’s Day. I don’t really have a copy of the Daily Planet. It’s more lake the Weekly Planet. What I can say is that it is the METROPOLIS PLANET, the newspaper of Metropolis, Illinois, published every Wednesday.

I received this copy of the newspaper from my local comic book shop, ACME COMICS in Longwood, Florida http://acme-superstore.com. It was a commemorative edition for the opening of the Amazing World Of Superman Exhibition Center, the town’s first Superman museum. This episode features some of the pictures and stories about the beginnings of Metropolis’ adoption of Superman as its native son.

For more information about the history of the town of Metropolis, the Superman Celebration and the Superman museum, listen to Episode 26 of this podcast:

The dates for the 2010 Superman Celebration are June 10 – 13, 2010. For more information go to: http://www.supermancelebration.net. For more information about the current Superman Museum go to: http://supermanmuseum.com.

The REIGN OF THE SUPERMEN storyline would usher in the return of the real Superman. In an unusual move DC introduced these four possible replacements for the Man of Steel each in one of the four Superman titles of the time, cover dated June 1993. All four titles were published on the same day, April 27, 1993. This was during the triangle numbering era of the Superman comics. Superman’s first possible replacement appeared in ACTION COMICS 687, Triangle #12, and would come to be known as the Eradicator.

The Eradicator first appeared ina different form in ACTION COMICS ANNUAL 2, 1989. For more information about the Eradicator’s origins listen to Episode 103 of this podcast:.
