Super-Capitalist-Pig: 1980s Superman Peanut Butter Commercial

Apparently the Superman of the 1980s wasn’t above making a buck off of his fame and reputation, as he marketed “Superman Peanut Butter” to kids for several years. (No, really.)

Which inspired Lex Luthor to hatch his least-nefarious plan in the history of ever.

    It’s always fun to picnic in the prison yard . . .

    Superman sure was lucky those kids like to hang around prison-caves, and that they always carry their trusty rope.
