Even people who aren’t into superheroes know who Superman is. He’s an icon of humanity. There’ll be those who, of course, who know, but don’t love him. But we reckon that even they have some quiet respect for the Man of Steel. For us, Superman is Christopher Reeve. Always will be. But if you’ve ever wondered what Superman/Kal-El gets up to on his day off, here’s what happens . . .
Superman’s Day Off
Check Zod’s still in the phantom zone,
get Krypto a Kryptonic bone
Pick Lois Lilies from Japan,
be back in time to make a flan
Fly past Batman, shouting out “you’re lame
and weak, tell Robin he’s the same!”
Drop off my glasses for repair
Wash my spare bright red underwear
Visit Fortress of Solitude
but do not leave in a sad mood!
Catch falling planes, fix cliffs, track Lex,
safely pull all from burning wrecks
And when I’ve done all that and more,
relax, that’s what days off are for!
