In recognition of the latest Superman blockbuster, "Man of Steel", it may interest readers to know that Nessie gets a mention in at least one Superman comic of old. It is Action Comics No. 497 published in July 1979. Ever wondered how to get the definitive proof for the Loch Ness Monster?
"This is a job for Superman!"
Now if you read the speech bubbles, you may have noted that Superman mentions the Loch Ness Monster, but this is actually the Loch Trevor Monster he has bagged! What on earth is the Loch Trevor Monster and who ever thought of that ridiculous name for a Scottish loch? Indeed, does it outdo the outrageous "Hoots Mon!" Scotsmen in the comic for laughability? Well, it may have something to do with this earlier Jimmy Olsen comic drawn by the late, great Jack Kirby.
And last but not least DC Comics' resident "Nessie" also made this appearance in May 1990. Well, at least Superman informed us that Nessie is not the survivor of alien experiments. Just in case any of you guys were toying with that idea!
BTW, I enjoyed "Man of Steel" and though it was better than "Superman Returns" but that original Christopher Reeves "Superman" film still wins it for me!
