Remember that time Superman made a pornographic film? No? Well, gather 'round the campfire, comic lovers. I have a story to tell. Or, rather, John Byrne had a story to tell. He was hired to reinvent the Superman character in the 1980s.
Action Comics number 593 in October of 1987 found Superman and super heroine Big Barda being brainwashed by a villain named Sleez. While readers weren't "treated" to the on-set action to see whether the Man of Steel really was faster than a speeding bullet, they did get to see the (obviously dismayed) reaction of Big Barda's husband. Great Scott!
