Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Top Five Month (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with a list inspired by the recent Top Five “Great Scott” Exclamations on Challengers of the Unknown Covers. That got me thinking to all the times Superman would exclaim “Great ____!” on the covers to his comics. So here are the top five Superman exclamations that begin with the word “Great”!!
NOT NECESSARILY HONORABLE MENTIONS
These ones aren’t Superman exclamations, but how can you do a list like this and not at least pay lip service to Perry White shouting, “Great Caeser’s Ghost!”?
And so long as we have Perry White, how about Lois Lane shouting “Great Heavens!”
Now on to Superman!!
You would think there would have been a cover with Superman shouting “Great Rao!,” but if there is, I sure haven’t seen it. If someone knows of one, let me know and I’ll add it. Otherwise it just has to stay an honorable “never actually happened” mention!
This one is really a toss-up between the one at #5. I can see going with either one of them.
5. “Great Suns!”
I figure Superman’s powers DO come from the Sun, so this is appropriate!
4. “Great Moons of Krypton!”
I love how specific this one is.
3. “Great Guns!”
This one I love for the sheer nonsensical nature of it. What does that even MEAN?!?
2. “Great Scott!”
A reliable classic. Superman used this one a lot.
1. “Great Krypton!”
This one, however, is his go-to exclamation.
That’s the list! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!
