Episode #17: Was Superman A Spy? (When We Last Left Our Heroes)

Did you know that Wolverine of the X-Men was originally meant to be an ACTUAL wolverine? Did you know that a Dutch inventor was blocked from getting a patent on a process because it had been previously used in a Donald Duck comic book? Did you know that Stan Lee turned down the offer to adapt Star Wars into a comic book?

This month, on When We Last Left Our Heroes, author Brian Cronin helps Umapagan Ampikaipakan demystify some of the interesting tales, unbelievable anecdotes, wacky rumors, and persistent myths that have piled up in the eight decades of the superhero comic.
