What a great blog entry! Darn killjoys

Mark Engblom

Glad you liked it, Chris. Yeah...those IRS killjoys are well-represented by the intrepid Rupert Brand.

ABS

How exciting! Next month: Superman decimates the coal supply, floods the diamond market, and causes general economic chaos! Accountants and economists flee in terror!

Ron

Later, after Superman leaves, Brand's boss tears him a new one for failing to follow IRS procedure by launching his own collection process without obtaining approval from his department supervisor.

Of course, with his super-hearing, Supes can hear every word, and as he listens he breaks the fourth wall and tosses the reader one of his classic Silver Age winks.

...such as Bizarro showing up and transforming a collection of priceless ivory into Ivory Soap!

Please tell me that Superman massacred an entire herd of elephants to get all that ivory.

From ABS:

"Accountants and economists flee in terror!"

That would be a good thing, right?

From Ron:

"Of course, with his super-hearing, Supes can hear every word, and as he listens he breaks the fourth wall and tosses the reader one of his classic Silver Age winks."

LOL! "Mess with me, will you, Brand?"

(come to think of it, maybe Brand's "boss" was actually Batman in disguise. Those two bailed each other out of jams all through the Silver Age.)

From Jeffrey:

"Please tell me that Superman massacred an entire herd of elephants to get all that ivory."

Tell you what, Jeffrey....I'll give you the story behind the ivory in tomorrow's blog entry. Sort of an "epilogue", if you will.

Ron

"Those two bailed each other out of jams all through the Silver Age."

Heck, that raises a good question: why didn't he just ask Bruce Wayne to loan him the money?

Mark Engblom

Although Bruce Wayne has Bill Gates-like wealth in the current DC universe, the Batman of that day and age was a much more modest millionaire....so I don't think even Bruce Wayne could have sprung Superman from his IRS obligations.

Mike Condon

The other day I was at a comedy Improv show that featured Superman being bugged about not paying taxes.

By the way, your site is the first one that comes up when one types in Superman and IRS on google.
