And I Fall For It, Every Time

Every single DC Silver Age cover: Batman holding a Kryptonite gun to Superman’s head while Joe Chill is cheering him on and shouting “Because Joe Chill demands it – tonight you DIE, Superman!

Every single Silver Age DC story: “It’s really quite simple! We knew that the alien assassin had to take on a human form in order to get close to Superman, assimilating their memories as well as their physical attributes! And by sheer luck – this one picked Joe Chill! But because signals thru space travel much more slowly than their teleportation, they couldn’t have known that Joe Chill was dead – and that was the critical clue we needed, so we played along in order to draw them out of hiding!”
