Electric Bluegaloo, Act 3: Saviour And Scorn

Electric Bluegaloo, Act 3: Saviour and Scorn

Of all the strange transformations Superman has undergone in his 78-year history, none has been quite so derided as the year where his familiar costume and powers were replaced with a blue and white "containment suit" and a tenuous relationship with electricity. But that raises the question, was it really all that bad? Two decades later, we want to find out, so ComicsAlliance is taking a look back at the Electric Blue Era of Superman to find out not just what worked, but if anything worked. This is... Electric Bluegaloo.

This week, Superman faces off against some new challenges, including the comic book equivalent of readers who loudly declared that this electric guy wasn't their Superman at all!
