Every media outlet has mentioned the passing of Mike Nichols. Most focused on his work as a movie director, but only mentioned his comedy LPs with Elaine May. In their time, they were extremely popular, even appearing in commercials for General Electric. Above is a cover from a Lois Lane comic book from that era. I'm wondering if there was in fact a Nichols & May comedy record featuring a Superman routine. Several comedians did Superman routines, notably Bob Newhart and Bill Cosby. I cannot find a verification of this existing. Maybe someone at DC comics thought this would be a funny idea for a story (For some of the crazy stories in Lois Lane comics, check out this post on Flashbak by Yeoman Lowbrow).
