> > I've been re-reading my old post-crisis Superman comics and was wondering if the origin of Superman's electrical powers was ever explained. I always assumed it had something to do with his efforts to regain his powers following Final Night, but the robots in the Fortress of Solitude stopped recognizing his Kryptonian DNA before that (Superman #117). What was the source of the change and when was it explained.

SUPERMAN SECRET FILES AND ORIGINS #1 said it occured as a result of Superman's battle with Tolos and being drawn into Kandor. See, Kandor exists (existed?) on a different plane, and when Tolos tried to pull him in, it left Superman slightly out of phase.

>and certainly none as to why the two energy versions of him (red and blue) merged and switched back to his nomral form (and powers) when they expended all their energy in one joint blast during the "visit" by the giants from some other realm.

Why he changed back was explained in SUPERMAN FOREVER.

Well, I remembered it as being a possibility, at least. Sorry if it was said to be a certainty instead.

Don't leave us hanging! What did it say?!?!?
