Host Anthony Desiato and guest Ralph Puma dig into the legendary JLA run by Grant Morrison and Howard Porter in Part IV of “Electric ‘Til Superman,” an epic podcast event mining the late 1990s in the Triangle Era comics and beyond.
They discuss Morrison’s treatment of Electric Superman, the epic scale and relentless pace of the series — from the Hyperclan through Mageddon — and how it attempted to move the mythology of the DCU forward.
This episode covers “JLA” no.1-17, 22-26, 28-31, 34, & 36-41; “JLA: Secret Files & Origins” no.1; and “New Year’s Evil: Prometheus” no.1.
