The STRANGE DEATH of SUPERBOY!

"I am a big Superman fan who detested the Crisis and its impact on the character.  It's so good to know there are others out there who share my respect for the older stories.

"My favorite part of your site is definitely the on-line comics.  I agree with your selection of stories for the most part (certainly better than any of the anthologies DC has published), but I notice that you're missing one of my favorites: Superboy #161, published in 1969.  In it, Clark has been pushed around by a school bully once too often, and finally decides to give up his powers so he can lead a normal life and not have to pretend to be a weakling.

"Naturally, he soon realizes how much Superboy is needed and has to risk his life to get his powers back.  A similar premise would be used years later in Superman II, but I like the idea that this very human dilemma occurred early on in his career.  It's a very well-written piece."
