14 people and animals who are never going to be Superman

Nope. Not happening lads. Sorry.

TODAY THE NEW Superman movie Man of Steel is hitting cinemas.

The new Superman is played by Henry Cavill but he’s not the first actor to take on the part.

Alongside that, the internet is awash with people who have attempted to dress up as Superman and not got it quite right.

1. The person who left their Super-pants behind

What is Superman without his Superman underwear?

2. The Superman Clown

Superman does not have time for any clowning around both literal or pun-related

3. The Superman with excessive chest-hair

This is a distracting amount of chest hair and an unusual use of the cape.

We will not get on board with this.

4. A costume that looks impossible to move in

How would Superman get anything done wearing something as skin tight as this?

5. Skating Superman

We’re sorry, Superman has no time to be skating around the place no matter how much fun this guy seems to be having

6. Slackline Superman

Fair play to this guy for his slackline skills but Superman would never wear black runners with his outfit.

7. This insisting on being bottomless Superman

Excuse us for being prudish but shouldn’t Superman be keeping his jocks on?

8. A scarecrow that is fooling nobody

We are enjoying the fake telephone booth beside him though

9. The Sassy Supercat

If we’re going to go with the Animal Kingdom on this one then we’ll take a sassy cat please

10. Superdog

Dogs are also welcome

11. Not very convincing Super Pony

We’re not sure why My Little Pony and Superman teamed up but we don’t like the look of it at all.

12. Superman with a bum-bag

Are you having a laugh?

Superman has no need for a bum-bag (or “fannypack”) and we can understand why the woman in this picture is therefore gawking in shock.

13. These show offs

We don’t think the Flash, Batman or Superman would run around in just their underpants lads.

They’d catch their death and also it’s a bit show-off-y.

14. These amateurs

One of them can’t even get their underpants on properly.

Morto for yiz lads.
