Action 363 – Virus X

Why did the authorities in the correctional facilities of the 60’s Silver Age DC comic universe let an imprisoned Lex Luthor anywhere within 500 feet, no, YARDS, nay MILES of any kind of laboratory equipment, tools, test – tubes, Bunsen burners, medical equipment, solutions, gadgets or devices back in DC’s Silver Age ? Anyone with more than a brain – stem could tell that Luthor would just get up to no good with it, & he’d just use said equipment & other resources in a scheme against Supes & / or one of his friends or associates. People were just too trusting & naive back then. A somewhat simpler time compared to present cynicism. SIGH…..
Anyway, I am something of an old comic fan / present – day sci – fi geek. & Apparently ” Virus X ” was the only other item besides green Kryptonite ( & some forms of occult influences / magic ) that paused a clear & present danger to ” The Big Blue Boy Scout ” & let us not forget exposing him to red simulated sunlight approximating Krypton’s sun then doing something to him that would endanger his health & life.
P.S. :
I have had some trouble with my computer, aggravated by a dodgy monitor so I haven’t done much blogging lately. Hopefully I’ll be back for a longer time…..
