Well just goddamnit, Lucy Lane.

Comic Cover Monday: Men Against Crime (Formerly Mr.Risk)
$3 can get you a mildly dissatisfying comic from DC, or it can get you hundreds of pages of blistering insight into comics, horror, pop culture and the essential horrors and victories of everyday life, courtesy of Matt Maxwell.
Also I did the introduction, but don’t let that discourage you.
I foolishly thought Benito’s Pal Calamity Jon Morris had gone as obscure as it was going to get when, for his project of illustrating 75 Superman villains, he had drawn a character who appeared only in one 8-page story from the Golden Age, but he trumped it today by posting a character who has been in the comics ZERO TIMES, and appears only in this 6-minute Superman cartoon from 1967. Clearly there are zero holds to be barred in this exercise.
But I found him, and I found the cartoon, and now I’m sharing it with the world so Jon can’t lord his superior knowledge over us all.
Two things of note about this cartoon:
1) Superman totally murders that guy in cold-ass blood
2) The way Icy Harris runs away at the end is the most hilarious animation I have ever seen
Superman? More like Super Cool Dude.
I asked this elsewhere and I’m still curious - am I reading this right? Does Superman save this boy from falling from a ledge to his death on the streets below, only to return him to the same ledge and fly off?
