Thursday Thirteen edition 26: Superman Trivia

Thirteen Things about Superman - trivia
I adore Superman. I absolutely love him. Actually, it's Clark Kent I love. Heart be still... 1.... Superman's full Earth name is Clark Joseph Kent. 2....... The Jonathon, Martha, and Clark Kent lived on a ten acre farm in Smallville. She inherited it from her first husband, who had passed away. 3....... Clark Kent's favorite meal is Beef Bourguignon (with ketchup) 4....... On the black and white Superman TV show, the Superman costume was actually brown! 5....... Clark Kent met mermaid Lori Lemaris while a senior at Metropolis University. It's a long story, by the fell in love and almost got married! 6....... When Superman started out in the comics, he could only leap, not fly. (about 1/8 mile) 7....... Unless stated otherwise, Superman is always 29 years old in any given story. 8....... Clark and Superman part their hair parted on opposite sides, but the big difference is the forehead lock Superman has. 9....... Gold Kryptonite would take away Superman's powers forever, if he was exposed to it. 10..... White Kryptonite kills any type of plant life. 11..... The initials L. L. feature very prominently in Superman's life. Lana Lang was his boyhood girlfriend, Lois Lane is the love of his life, Lyla Lerrol was a super-hottie Kryptonian that he almost married, and of course, Lex Luthor is his worst enemy. 12...... Lois and Clark's first apartment's address is: Hyperion avenue. They got the place because Bruce Wayne owns it, and as a wedding present, he put Lois and Clark at the top of the tenants list, ensuring they got the home of their dreams. 13.... Robert Redford was offered the part of Superman in the 1978 movie version before Christopher Reeves took it.

I had to go looking for it. I didn't know it off the top of my head. Not most of it, anyway.
