Let's Goku was also based on both the Monkey King Legend and Superman. Goku was sent as an infant to Earth and his alien planet ultimately blew up too.  Akira Toriyama is a big fan and he even created another character named Suppaman in Dr. Slump.

Mad magazine also did Captain Marbles.

How SNL's Uberman played by Dan Ackroyd? Cheesy  That skit came out to spoof Superman: The Movie.

One of the funniest lines was how he could see not only through Lois' clothes but Jimmy's too and he could see that Jimmy Olsen was a Jew.

How many remember Wally Cox voicing this famous animated cry?


"There's no need to fear -- UNDERDOG is here!"


From 1964 to 1973, the Underdog cartoon show began with a clear "wink" at Superman:


First voice:  "Look, up in the sky -- it's a bird, it's a plane, it's a frog..."

Crowd:  "A FROG?"

Underdog:  "Not bird, nor plane, nor even frog, it's just little 'ole me, UNDERDOG !"

Quote from: "Gary"
Another character who seems to be based on Fawcett's Captain Marvel is Marvel's Captain Mar-Vell. Maybe not at first, but later, the way he ended up sharing his existence with Rick Jones, having to swap in and out of the real world, seemed very much like they were trying to bring the character more in line with being a more sophisticated version of his old namesake. (Roy Thomas, who was writing Marvel's Marv at the time, is a well-known fan of those oldie comics.)


Very good point, Gary.

Mar-Vell was so much like Superman in many ways.  His name had the Kryptonian hyphenated convention.  He came from a high-gravity world like Superman did.  His later costume was the classic red-and-blue that Superman made ubiquitous for super-heroes.  He later had powers partly derived from converted solar radiation.  His race, the Kree, seems to be a derivative of Krypton/Kryptonians, and they're similarly ultra-advanced like the Kryptonians were.

I'd say Mar-Vell had more in common with Superman himself than Captain Marvel.

The Marvel Thor may be considered a derivative Superman.  His powers are similar.  He has the dual ID Superman started for super-heroes.  His costume bears a certain resemblance to the blue-and-red costume of Superman.  Stan Lee even has stated that he was creating 'super-god' when he made Thor.

He wears red and blue and Peter works for a newspaper with an overbearing boss just like Clark.
