Superman in the Bronze Age

Host Anthony Desiato and guest Bernie Gerstmayr dig into the Bronze Age of Superman (1970-1985), which marked a pivot from the Silver Age into more grounded, introspective stories and featured Clark Kent as a TV news anchor. Stories discussed include Denny O'Neil's landmark "Kryptonite Nevermore," Elliot S! Maggin's "Must There Be a Superman?", and Alan Moore's "For the Man Who Has Everything." This is the final installment in a podcast trilogy diving into the Pre-Crisis Superman.
