Actually folks even with moderate exposure will recover. And that's normal humans. The CDC will back me up on that one. Please, feel free to verify that.
So, a Kryptonian, with a healing metabolism, has been exposed for 5 minutes. He may have held his breath so it may be possible that his immune system was able to counter-act skin exposure. Even if we consider 5 minutes as severe exposure ... he's fucking Kryptonian ! :lol:


First it's "The Goddamn Batman" now it "The Fucking Kryptonian Superman".

Except he's not holding his breath. He's mumbling incoherently and answering chemistry trivia about the periodic tale. In every panel that he's inside the gas chamber, I can clearly see his teeth. He doesn't need oxygen while exposed to a lethal dose of Sarin Gas, but he needs oxygen while out in space.

Superman makes it up as he goes along, classic Silver Age.

Actually folks even with moderate exposure will recover. And that's normal humans.


Only after exposure stops. Nobody is going to recover from Sarin Gas while in the chamber during exposure. That was the point remember? You claimed Superman had a moments rest and during that time he recovered enough to escape. But I pointed out he had no respite, they were pumping the room full of gas then when he finally had enough, Superman looked around, found his rocket and microwaved their technology before walking out the front door.

There's no way the CDC is going to back the idea that someone in a gas chamber exposed to Sarin Gas is just going to get over it while the door is locked and the gas continues to flow.

Yup, just like Batman's always right, Superman is always strong.

What kid can afford that?

Sadly, there aren't enough of those. Only 9.7% of Americans make over $100K a year.

Seriously, if DC is going to charge $3.99 for 20 pages or so of main story and a backup, at least make the backup feature something other than filler. Want to do stories with Steel, fine. Just make it more than just "background" for the main story.

If that same Steel story was in the main part of the book would you have considered it filler ?
I felt it added an extra dimension to the main story and Steel came off looking good in the process 8)

Considering Morrison didn't write it, and it didn't do $#!t for me, then yes.
