Then came the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', a mega-event that reset the continuity of every DC title. Thus began the modern, JohnByrne era of Superman which strove to be more "realistic." Realizing that Silver Age Superman deserved a grand finale, editor Julius Schwartz hired Creator/AlanMoore, and Superman ur-artists Curt Swan and Kurt Schaffenberger (who was also best known for defining the look of ComicBook/LoisLane, and his work on ''{{Shazam}}'' and the Captain Marvel Family tales), and made the last Silver Age tale--an "imaginary story." Published in September, 1986. For Moore, a lifelong Superman fan, specifically the Silver Age Superman, this story was the "final" Superman story. For many writers, its one of the greatest Superman stories ever written with Neil Gaiman claiming that the opening is the greatest triple entendre in comics and a goodbye to a Superman that existed in Moore's heart.

* ContinuityPorn: For the Silver Age. It's astounding how much Alan Moore manages to squeeze into one story while still keeping it gripping and tense.

For example, the source of [[https://themiddlespaces.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/cc-jm-ll-covers.jpg Jimmy and Lana's powers]] were obscure even in 1985.
