Once upon a time, there was a multi-issue story arc which involved Superman in a wheelchair, begging for handouts.  He was wearing a disguise.  In the story, he had been missing for some time.  He had apparently lost his powers and was working on a cure.  He was also caring for some people with some sort of disease.  I only had the first installment and never read the conclusion.  Does this story ring a bell with anyone?

Yes, it's one of those stories I've got great memories of. It's
Action Comics # 396 (jan. 1971) : The Super-Panhandler of Metropolis!  
 Action Comics # 397 (feb. 1971). : Secret of the Wheel-Chair Superman!

MAN!!! I remember reading those when I was a wee little kid!  Wasn't he disguised as the President, too?  Wasn't it set in 1999 or something?  I should check the links, y'know

Superman as the President
I believe was Action issue number 371, nice little 4 part story till issue 375, (373 was a giant supergirl )
Superman was also a wrestler , and Public enemy number 1 in this story .
Great Neil Adams' cover and Curt Swan art

WHAT? Tell me more! You can't just say stuff like that and leave me hanging! Now I'm going to have to look it up on the information superhighway!
