How to React to Reactron

This week sees the introduction of DC Comics supervillain Reactron, a notorious enemy of both Superman and Supergirl that first appeared in THE DARING NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERGIRL #8. With the ability to generate lethal radiation, Reactron played a massively integral and deadly role in the crossover event SUPERMAN: NEW KRYPTON.

Bakerline Nuclear Power Station

If Jimmy Olsen seemed to recognize the power station where Benjamin Krull and his wife Alicia worked, it wasn't just because Superman saved it from terrorists. In the comics, Jimmy Olsen hails from Bakerline, one of the six boroughs of Metropolis.

Is That a Superman Signal Watch?

Comic fans might have recognized the special watch James Olsen showed Kara that allows him to signal Superman for help whenever he finds himself in trouble. The famous watch first made its appearance in ACTION COMICS #238 and became a permanent and well-known fixture in the adventures of Superman's Pal during the Silver Age of comics.

More Than Just Lois' Sister

Lucy Lane first appeared in SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN #36 and became a major romantic interest for the Daily Planet photographer. The younger sister of Lois Lane, Lucy ended up encountering her fair share of supervillains throughout her history and featured heavily in the storyline "Supergirl: Who is Superwoman?" 

See you next week, Superfans!
