Hey folks, I have memories of an issue, and I hope someone can help me track it down. Here is what I can tell you:

- It is definitely a post-Crisis issue, and I am nearly certain it is post-Doomsday.

- The story features sequences with the supporting cast imagining themselves with Superman's powers

- Perry is one of the characters, and his sequence is a type of 1950s/George Reeves pastiche. This really sticks in my head.

- I believe Cat Grant and Luthor also got sequences.

Admittedly, that is not much information, but is the story ringing any bells?

That would be Superman #120 (Volume 2, 1997).

Your welcome. ;\)

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
