20 years ago on old SNLs Franken had frizzy, 'fro like hair.  

Steve Allen was more a possibility - one that was explored in the Superman daily strip[s and reprinted in the 25th Annvsy Silver Superman annual

I did see Steve take his glasses off one day on TV and darn if he didnt look like Geo Reeves - simply uncanny!

I'll support Franken as Superman ONLY if they let Gilda Radner be Wonder Woman.  

I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned this before on this thread:

How about a young Ralph Nader? Elliot Maggin made this joke already. Somebody asks Superman who his secret identity was. "Was it Ralph Nader?" They ask.

Like many throwaway lines in Maggin's work, this was a surprisingly astute observation. Ralph had the height, the eye color, the hair, and a sort of "protect and serve" job as a consumer protection advocate.

It made me look at Ralph a little funny every time he showed up on television.

How about Lex Luthor? He played him in a SNL "Death of Superman" skit back in 1992.
