Golden Age superhero comics are amazing things. Things of bizarre, surrealistic beauty.

For instance, that "dive into a vat of molten lead" thing? I didn't make that up. The character of Steel Sterling, who appeared in Zip Comics and Jackpot Comics, was a young scientist who had created a formula to make himself bulletproof. Since animal testing is for wusses, he slathered himself with the completely untested formula and leapt into a vat of molten steel.

It was the Golden Age! Science didn't worry about the real world!
