DC EXPLODES ON TV - 6 OF TWELVE
Seinfeld Meets The Man of Steel
Here's another installment of "DC Explodes on TV," counting down the top 12 covers of DC comics as seen on television. Today it's cover number seven, Man of Steel #53, which was shown on "Seinfeld" in the episode "The Invitations."

DC covers also appeared in the Seinfeld episode "The Stall," the one where George and his new man-crush, Dan Cortese, go rock climbing. George causes Dan to fall, and later brings Dan comics while he's recouperating at Elaine's apartment.

The comic books, shown VERY briefly, are Action #687 and Adventures of Superman #503, whose cover shot of the half-human/half robot Eliminator looks eerily similiar to Dan's bandaged face.
