Where is Superman when you need him? Out passing speeding bullets or being more powerful than a locomotive? What was it he could do in a single bound? Something about tall buildings. Leap! That was a toughy, eh?
My recollection of Superman was that he was pretty thick and incompetent when incognito as Clark Kent. More prone to slay the maiden and save the dragon kind of thick. That outfit must have imputed to him some mental powers that sort of vanished when it was under his street clothes and not in the full light of the sun. Where did he hide the cape? Sort of roll it up and puff up his shoulders under his t-shirt?
One thing that always puzzled me about Superman. If he wore his outfit under his street clothes all the time, how come he couldn't fly until he took them off?
Too many subway tokens in his pockets.
