Infinite Crisis #4 - Bad dog!

I like the Modern Age. I like the Silver Age, the Golden Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. But I'll be the first to admit that mixing them successfully takes a delicate touch.

Infinite Crisis #4 spoilers behind cut

Having a Silver Age icon decapitate, dismember, flash-fry and punch holes in other heroes is not a light touch, nor is having said icon kick the crap out of a dog. Just for reference.

While I'm sure this will all be explained as either "Earth-1's influence on Superboy" or "Luthor's influence on Superboy" by the end of the story, it's still a bad call.  This is just kinda distasteful, and I think it could have been handled better.

That said, Superboy's a shoe-in for the gold in the '08 Olympics' Krypto Toss.
