Superman #283 1975
I just found this issue in the $1 bin at the local comic book store. I remember when I got this book but lost it over the years. For some reason I loved the cover story. It was a simple story of a man trying to find out who Superman is so he can blackmail him in to helping him. Of course it didn't work. What really gets your attention is Supes calling himself Chris Delbart. Everyone knows he is Clark Kent. Using his superspeed he is able to trick the man's tracking instruments to get new clothes. Of course the little used power these days is his superventriloquisim to make it seem that everyone was saying hello to Mr. Delbart. Now did you get a look at that suit on him? Did we really dress like that in the 70's? At least it isn't a leisure suit.
