Memory Monday: Superman Teams Up with Clark Kent

Every Monday — whether you need it or not — I post cool, absurd, and/or awesome panels from comic books I read as a kid. This is Memory Monday.

Through a convoluted coincidence (it involves the Miracle Machine — don’t ask), Superman and Clark Kent are temporarily split into two people. Which gives us a chance to experience this lovely, powerful moment of regret. Whenever people tell me Superman is “unrelatable” as a character or “too powerful to be interesting,” I think of this moment:

One thing: I find it odd that literally years after their deaths, Jonathan and Martha Kent’s graves still have those “freshly filled” humps on them. Weird.
