It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s… Don Draper?: The Parallels Between ‘Mad Men’ & Superman

Last night on his Twitter, Eisner Award-winning author Mark Waid — who chronicled a new origin for the Man of Steel in “Superman: Birthright” — explored the ways Don Draper parallels Superman with themes of alienation following the series finale of AMC’s hit drama “Mad Men.”

Draper’s complex relationships are made very clear in the finale, as Don calls the three women he probably has the most love and respect for in his life: Peggy Olson, his ex-wife and his daughter.

This is also made very clear in the penultimate episode, last week’s “The Milk and Honey Route,” when he talks with the local con man, Andy, and explains how difficult it is to maintain the ruse.

“Mad Men” aired its final episode on Sunday, May 17. Superman will next be seen in live-action in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” scheduled for release on March 25, 2016.
