more evidence to superman having a personality disorder... the fact that he has conflicts between his two personalites (oh im sorry i mean Identities)

it seems like all of supes friends have issues, not at least superman, a narcissist with MPD

I like the idea that Superman's duality is a function of both sides of his brain being able to operate independently, the brain bit (not overall duality) being something Maggin proposed in the novels.

Interesting that Clark is always placed in the foreground and Superman in the background on these covers, implying that Clark's is the decisive role. Superman is supposedly the dominant, aggressive side of the personality- yet Clark is the one who could walk out of the relationship at his choosing, implying that Superman needs Clark more than vice versa. Superman is generally smaller, or even a mere "image" hovering above like a ghost. This suggests he could not exist long without Clark.

Also the first cover shown was published very shortly after John Romita's classic "Spider-Man No More!" cover for AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #50. I recall that  Carmine Infantino was designing all the DC cover sketches around this time, and trying to bring in a more dynamic, Marvel-style look to compete on the newsstands. Could the Romita cover have been an influence on the same basic design that kept being reused for Superman and Clark? (Although I'm not aware of any covers that show Superman and Clark actually walking away with backs turned to each other, as in the Spidey original.)

Here's another one.  Similar layout as Superman 209, 296 and 410 - but with Superman's costume where Clark is, and Clark where Superman is.

Are there people that would think that the art on the "Man of Steel" cover is better?  Its not good, the right forearm on Clark does not follow the anatomy of how the radius/ulna and muscles work, and the wrinkles on the suit should actually be "V"s directed upward toward the left hand  holding it at the highest point rather than downward.

Sorry to be off topic... Cool

Since when did Danzig acquire heat vision?!


Curious, how many times has Superman stopped posing as Clark Kent?
