Manic Monday Bonus--The Real Reason Luthor Went Bald!

Teen Lex Luthor's latest scientific scheme has backfired a bit, resulting in new powers for Superboy:

Dude--you're a teenager...aren't you a little old for tantrums? Shouldn't you be, oh, I don't know, locking yourself in your bedroom, listening to the Smiths or the Cure full blast, or something?

Man, think about that--a Goth young Luthor...this is why I'm not allowed to write comics.

Plus, Lex, if tear your hair out whenever you have a tantrum, then you probably would have gone bald anyway.Stop blaming Superboy!!

From The New Adventures Of Superboy #11 (1980)

The story was set in the mid-60s... what'd depressed teens listen to then? The Doors? :-)
