The Metropolis E-Mailbag wiki last edited by wmwadeii on 04/26/13 08:06AM View full history

It's Christmas time in Metropolis, and Superman has plenty of fan mail to answer. However, in the middle of the city, there is a battle going on! New Toyman is pummeling Metallo with hundreds of tiny electronic Superman figures, claiming that the parts that built Metallo rightfully belong to him, the Toyman.

Superman dispatches them easily, and returns to the Daily Planet as Clark Kent, where he finds one more piece of mail. It turns out to be one last holiday wish, this one from Lois. She is in Egypt, and she misses him. Then, the story ends with a shocking discovery--Lex Luthor knew that Lois' father was going to die--before it happened!!

I wa...

Godzilla is attacking Metallo and Toyman 0

What I enjoyed about Jeph Loeb's run on Superman was the playful approach he tool with the character.  There are the stand "Inspiration" idea that floats around is still there and that sets up this issue as a holiday season of Inspiration. The Premise is that Superman is given E-Mails requesting something from him on Christmas.  As Superman "Inspires", both Metallo and the knew Toyman fight.  While the fight Superman goes back and forth between the fight and his chores.  This is where we will lo...
