I Love Ya But You’re Strange – That Time Superman Was a Deadbeat Dad

Every installment of I Love Ya But You’re Strange I spotlight strange but ultimately endearing comic stories. Here is the archive of all the installments of this feature. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have a suggestion for a future installment!

Today, we take a look at a story where Superman appears to be a deadbeat dad…

1969’s Superman #218 (by Leo Dorfman, Curt Swan and Jack Abel), opens with Superman and Lois Lane traveling to a small town that Superman had saved from a flood five years earlier. While there, they discover a young boy who seems to have stolen some diamonds from a local store…

Daaaang, Superman, why don’t you tell her how you really feel?

The woman continues…

I like how Superman is giving zero effs to her pleas. Not even like a “This woman must be mentally disturbed,” but rather, “bitch, please.” But she continues…

Okay, so now Superman seemingly believes her, but then he pops up and exposes his son to kryptonite!

Now that he’s seemingly embraced his son, they bond, but his son is a pain in the ass…

I love that. “That little idiot.”

So Superman takes his son and wife to the Fortress of Solitude…

Wow, SUPER DISTURBING! She just freaking MELTS AWAY while bemoaning her lot in “life”? You are a messed up little dude, Mxy!

Can YOU guess how Superman figured it out?

That’s it for this installment!
