List Rules Vote up the Superman comic book covers that you find most alarming.

Superman has been coming to the aid of civilians and pretty brunette bombshells for decades. In fact, superhero anthology Action Comics first released a comic featuring Superman in June of 1938. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the Kryptonian has undergone many weird Superman transformations since his original inception as the blue-caped crusader. These shifts in the superhero make sense considering Superman's 80-year lifespan. Luckily, tons of other Justice League characters have sprung up over the years, joining Clark Kent in pursuit of truth, justice, and the American way.

Still, no amount of transformations can explain some of the covers that have featured the big blue boy scout over the years. If you go just by these covers, Superman is a full-blown maniac. So that's exactly what we're going to do.

Missing from this is the man-in-the-cage's most likely follow up of "Wait wait wait, you didn't let me finish. Either free me, or kill me, or just keep me in here for a little while longer, or let me dance for you or something? Please?!"

Honestly? We would be absolutely fine with Zack Snyder’s gritty Super-Fatso movie if he wanted to make one.
