Groove's Faves: "The Man Who Murdered the Earth!" by Wein, Swan, and Anderson

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! With Superman #248 (December 1971), Len Wein, Curt Swan, and Murphy Anderson gave us an action epic featuring Superman, Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, and Lex's "latest" creation, The Galactic Golem! GG was a little bit cosmic, a little bit legend, a little bit Frankenstein's Monster--and a whole lot ugly! Prepare for..."The Man Who Murdered the Earth!"

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! The Galactic Golem's second appearance in Superman #258 is even cooler (imo) than his debut tale! Be on the lookout for it here on the Diversions...soon!


  1. This was and is. swan detain at Their Best. Half way Thru. I realized Grant Morisson used. And Updated the idea in All Star Superman. All Luthor. Who said you can't update an oldie pure Silver Age.

  2. I still own this. Bought it new when I was nine. Many a time as a child, I reread it.

  3. "Oh I just removed every living thing from the planet"

    What an ending!

  4. why didn't he send the golom into that dimension? save everyone else a trip.
