Put on a Superman costume and you’ll look like Superman. It’s a concept that dates way back to 1938. Even a dog looks like Superman in the right outfit!
This was proven time and time again in the comic books, as Clark Kent took off his glasses, put on the red-and-blue suit and – Shazam! – he was Superman. The scene on the cover of Action #150 proves my point.
This comic is listed on eBay now for $100,000. Bid early and often.
So it was only natural that Herbie Mann dressed up as Superman for the cover of his 1978 disco hit entitled “Superman.” After all, he was Herbie Mann already so he was halfway there. (He could have dressed as Herbie The Fat Fury, but I haven’t found a song yet for that character so it’s just as well.)
.The Japanese release even sports a drawing of Herbie as Superman.
So get up and boogie down to “Superman”! Extra points if you do it in costume.
