CBLR Spotlight on the Death of Superman

With the 20th Anniversary of the Death of Superman this month, I thought it would be a good idea to collect all of the various Comic Book Legends Revealed I have done over the years about the event into one place.


How did the TV series Lois and Clark indirectly lead to the Death of Superman?

Did Neil Gaiman and Matt Wagner nearly write the Death of Superman first?

Was DC really totally unprepared for how popular the Death of Superman would become?

Did the overwhelming popularity of the Death of Superman cause DC to push back Superman’s return?

Did Doomsday originally make his debut at the end of the Panic in the Sky crossover?

Did protests by mental health organizations cause DC to re-write Doomsday’s original origin of having escaped from an intergalactic asylum?

Was a doppelganger in a Superman one-shot by Walter Simonson originally going to be the explanation for how Superman returned from the dead after he died fighting Doomsday?
