Fans of Mad magazine’s parodies of Superman movies over the years were disappointed when their Man of Steel parody was met with only a text mention on the cover. This was apparently their answer to that cry.
This is a copy of Mad Super Spectacular – Superman: Man of Steel number one which features a caricature of Henry Cavill as Superman with Alfred E. Newman hitching a ride on his leg. The majority of the content of this issue are reprints of old Superman parodies including Superman II, Superman III, Smallville, and Superman Returns. Man of Steel, unfortunately, is not included. Still, this is a fun magazine loaded with hilarious Superman parodies and joke comics including quite a number of them that were written and illustrated specifically for this issue.
