Shuster also pulled back on the political aspects of the series. Superman was still an activist, helping out widows and orphans, but he was also developing quite the rogues gallery. Most important of these, introduced in Action Comics #23, is Luthor. Unlike the Lex Luthor we know and love, the original Luthor, while a brilliant criminal mind, was pretty physical. He also wore a shock of red hair. Superman battled other science fiction based villains, including Zoltar, who wielded radium weapons. As the war in Europe escalated, Superman faced new foes in the form of fifth columnists and spies.
Nothing like more of the good stuff from the golden age.
Again, this is not the Superman of today. He truly was the Man of Tomorrow, with thrilling adventures of the early 1940s. Fun, simple stories from a different time.
To all Superman fans, and/or fans of early Golden Age comic book classics, get this book!!!
