Above, you’ll find the cover of Action Comics #286, published way, way back in 1962. As you can see, Superman stands before “The Jury of Super-Enemies,” a body composed of Saturn Queen, Cosmic King, Brainiac, Lightning Lord, Electro, and of course, Lex Luthor. We’re thinking that perhaps Supes should have simply waived his right to a jury trial if these villains were to serve as the fact finders. In fact, imagine how bad the venire panel must have been for old Supes to end up with this lot serving as the jurors.

Our favorite recent tweet must be this one:
