Super History of Superman: Superman of Tokyo (2012)

Superman of Tokyo AKA スーパーマン @ Tokyo  was a bizarre take on the Man of Steel used to usher in DC Nation.The two shorts introduced a Baby of Steel that pulled a Shazam! by aging into an adult when wearing Superman's cape as a diaper. Very odd indeed.

Though pretty out there, there 2 shorts were fun in that they paid tribute to those early Fliescher shorts. Since there were only ever 2, we will never see how twisted the Supes / Lois love triangle could have been since in this version Lois was the baby's mom. Eww.

Check back next week for another chapter in The Super History of Superman.
