Electric Bluegaloo, Act Two: Civil War In Kandor
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, we look at the fan reaction in the letter columns, Booster Gold gets a new costume with a lot less fanfare, and Superman heads to the Bottle City of Kandor alongside the Atom!
