Action Comics #176 “Muscles for Money!” (part 2 of 2)

Action Comics #176, cover dated January 1953, features Superman being an unbelievable dick, even by Superman standards. He alienates all of his friends, completely trashes his own image, and deliberately turns public opinion against him for rather unimpressive reasons. I almost think the writer came up with this story just for a laugh, never thinking it would actually ever see the light of day.”

“You see it time and again in every internet bio of L. Ron Hubbard that he was just some “obscure science-fiction author” who just happened to stumble onto the biggest money making concern since sliced bread.

Video: Snakes on a Plane (The TV Edit)

“Not only did they take an idiotic R-rated B movie famous for its internet buzz-worthy title and make it safe for family viewing, but they also allowed one guy with a computer and a TV capture card to cause a minor sensation that swept across the globe, and ultimately inspired a bit on a late night talk show.”
