Show/hide Cover Daddy Superman! (Superman) Cover, 1 page

"He handles cyclones, floods and dangerous criminals with the greatest of ease, so you'd think those two pure bundles of burbling inocence wouldn't be anything at all for mighty Superman. But just read and see for yourself what the Man of Steel goes through when a curious chain of errors and a cute pair of twins ensnare him in the exhausing role of "Daddy Superman!""
