PopQuizzical Daily! for June 10, 2013:
The original Superman radio program went by what title?
The Daily Star.
Superman artist Joe Shuster named the Metropolis paper after the newspaper of his youth in Ontario, the Toronto Daily Star. The name was changed so as not to confuse the fictional Daily Star with newspapers that had names including ‘Star’. Over time, however, continuities have been shuffled around and The Daily Star exists once again in the DC Universe and is now a direct competitor to The Daily Planet. And they both compete for eyeballs with this blog. Suck it, newspapers.
