Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?

1 min read

Host Anthony Desiato rings in 2023 with the story that ends with a wink: the seminal 1986 Superman tale “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?” by Alan Moore and Curt Swan.

Anthony and guest Ed Gross (Voices of Krypton podcast and forthcoming book) dig into the classic coda to the Silver Age Superman, examining whether the story was a fitting farewell to that iteration of Superman and to the character generally. Anthony also shares a change of heart regarding the final fate of Tom Welling’s Clark Kent (“Smallville”) in television’s Crisis event.
