I guess Super-Sarcasm is a power now, then.

Since when this comic was made, about the only behind the scenes knowledge anyone had about TV news was probably from the Mary Tyler Moore show; so maybe it didn't seem unusual for Clark to routinely ditch in the middle of a broadcast, whether it was interrupted or not. What am I saying? If your town had a local news anchor that routinely ditched out at the start of sports, mumbling something about a microwave pizza he left on, or hookers waiting on the clock; the networks would probably promote them to national. For all I know, Fox News has a dozen guys that do just that, all with their own conservative book deal.

Although, it does seem Clark has driven his producer/director past the point of hiding his drug habit.

Short one today, I'm tired. More fun tomorrow!

Action Comics #488, "Superman Battles Microwave Man!" Written by Cary Bates, pencils by Curt Swan, inks by Frank Chiaramonte.

That's her "term of endearment" for Clarkie back in those days.

I remember during those times Superman was the ultimate player. He was dating Lois as Superman while dating Lana as Clark at the same time! Now that's super!
