For the concept, please see superman.

Superman was a fictional comic book series about a superhero written during the early 20th century on Earth.

When Malcolm Reed and Trip Tucker were waiting for rescue in their disabled shuttlepod, Reed told Tucker that he believed that "North Americans read nothing but comic books and those ridiculous science fiction novels." Tucker replied that Superman was "laced with metaphor. Subtext layered on subtext." (ENT: "Shuttlepod One")

Background information Edit

Many Star Trek actors have appeared on TV incarnations of Superman, and a few have made appearances in the movies as well. (citation needededit) Superman animated cartoons of the 1940s, the first appearances of that franchise in film, were produced by Paramount Pictures.

A Starfleet carry case was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. As an inside gag, an inventory application on this case contains lyrics from the Jim Croce song "You Don't Mess Around with Jim" stating, "Don't tug on Superman's cape. Don't spit into the wind. Don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with Jim." [1]

Apocrypha Edit

Superman appears in Star Trek - Legion of Super-Heroes #3 as a flashback during an explanation of the United Planets in comparison to the United Federation of Planets.
