Special Father's Day Edition!

Today is a day to appreciate that rare pinnacle of man- Your Dad. To celebrate, here are some goofy covers depicting Fatherhood!
"But Superdad, I have the receipt!"

So, in lieu of jail time, you can just serve your sentence in a glass box? And your son can do it for you? That's an... interesting alternative to our overcrowded prisons....

"Son, come out of there. You're turning into a hippy."

Leave it to Superman to object in the most overly dramatic way possible.

If you think this is bad, you should see what happens when Reed Richards shows up at Franklin's school for Parent-Teacher day....

"That'll learn ya to touch yerself inappropriately!"

Why on Earth would you think it's a good idea to give your parents X-Ray vision? That's the WORST superpower a teenager can give his parents!!!

"Dang it, Ma, if only we had a large supply of Kryptonite to paddle the boy... Hey, waitasec!"

I really hope that off panel there's some stuffed shirt who's monocle is flying off.
I swear, EVERYONE in Superman's life just overreacts as a matter of course. Their first reaction to any simple problem is to attempt to kill themselves or loved ones. Batman never had to deal with this from his parents....

Memorable Iron Age Covers- The Deleted Scenes

Okay, so apparently 30 covers weren't enough, as I missed a few. Some I missed due to simple oversight (I still can't believe I forgot Aquaman!); others I had wanted to include, but the last post was getting large enough as it was. However, there were enough from both categories to merit an addendum of sorts, so here go- 20 more covers of Iron Age goodness!

Memorable Covers of the Iron Age!

To wrap up Iron Age Week, I thought we'd take a look at some of the covers that are either memorable, iconic, or just plain cool. So without further ado, here are thirty covers from 1986-1996, in no particular order, that I feel best characterize the Iron Age. Here we go!

So, agree? Disagree? Any particular ones I missed? Feel free to let me know!
