American Express "Seinfeld and Superman"

Published on .

The Man of Steel appeared in his apartment in many of the Seinfeld episodes, so teaming up with a cartoon version of the DC Comics hero wasn't much of a stretch for Jerry. But showing Superman in near Costanza-grade neuroses is an unexpected treat for those jonesing fans looking for more comedy about nothing. The two hang out in diners and walked the streets of Manhattan in two webisodes that feature the power of American Express.
