It is quickly option for a movie, with the hopes of a franchise. Charles keeps the “Lost in Time” concept for Brennon, though he transforms him into a young twenty-something. The warrior born Brennon awakens in 2026 and joins 18 year old Jean Bradley in her underground effort to reverse a tech takeover of the world by the Government Corporation. Its old-school steel against modern weapons in a battle for a free humanity.

SU Publications, with fewer titles than its larger competitors, struggled with the changes but never totally ceased publication like countless other minor players in the 4-color field. [img]http://www.serialexperience.com/image_gallery/Kirk_Alyn.jpg[/img] In 1949 Kirk Alyn, the ‘serial Superman’, tried to boost Colonel Frady’s morale with an autographed photo of a popular publicity shot that was originally taken in 1947 during the filming of the first Superman feature. Little did he know that this simple show of support would have such an impact on the Colonel’s future. According to ‘Dutch’ Frady, his father cried like a baby when the he opened the manila envelope that came in the mail that afternoon. He knew then that he had to stay in the fight and keep SU Publications solvent. If “Superman” had his back, then he couldn’t lose. Colonel Frady proudly displayed the photo on his modst office wall for decades. At Alyn’s 1999 funeral, ‘Dutch’ spoke briefly and related his father’s story; ending with “Kirk truly was ‘Superman’, at least in the eyes of my father”. Should you be fortunate to visit the SU World Headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee (opened in 2006) you’ll be greeted by two objects that very pivotal in the success of SU Enterprises. A display area in the main lobby showcases the well-worn oak desk used by both the Colonel and Dutch, as well as the autographed Kirk Alyn photo.<br /><br />5 comments Jerod Wed, 12 Mar 2014 18:41:14 -0500 Mayo Kaan 'Superman' http://superherouniverse.com/art/showphoto.php/photo/29530 <a href="http://superherouniverse.com/art/showphoto.php/photo/29530" target="_blank"><img title="Kaan.jpg" border="0" src="http://superherouniverse.com/art/data/500/thumbs/Kaan.jpg" alt="Kaan.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Jerod<br /><br />Description: Thought it'd be fun to share this since its superhero related.
