Quote:What are your memories of this event from 1992-3?
I purposely avoided reading it. I have an aversion to temporary gimmicks. This was true of me even as a kid. When Steve Englehart turned Steve Rogers into Nomad, I stopped buying the comic. (That was 1974. I was 13.) When David Michelinie put Jim Rhodes into the Iron Man armor, I stopped buying the comic. (That was 1983.) When Denny O'Neil put Jean-Paul Valley in the Bat suit, I stopped buying the Bat comics. (That was 1993.)
Any way, I knew there was no way in the world DC would keep Superman dead. So I skipped the whole thing. There's no suspense or drama when you know without a doubt the "shocking" twist will be undone. None for me, any way.
