Yesterday I mourned the loss of the possibility of Superman 2020.
Why is it such a loss?
The first--and most important--reason is that, in the 1980s version of 2020, we all would be speaking in wonderful future-slang:
The best part, of course, is that we required a caption from Julie Schwartz explaining the slang to us.
So we've only got 8 years to start talking like idiots, and now we have to do it without Superman II and Superman III's help!
My pulsations are steady--I fear for our slangless future...
From Superman #354 (1980)
