Be careful, Superman; today is April Fool's Day!
DC Challenge #12 (1986)
Of course, that solution wouldn't work today. We don't have phone books anymore!

My hope that 2021 would be better than 2020 didn't last a whole week. Blech.
I uploaded this page from Justice League Unlimited #17 (2005) to my comic book blog, Boosterrific.com, on Monday. I liked it then. I like it more now.
Hold tight, Sam.

COVID 19 has reduced this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Parade to a shadow of its former self, and that sounds like a job for Superman!
Most of my yard paintings over the past year have included a subversive wink at the holiday/season or current events that inspired them. Not so much here. I just thought the Superman parade balloon from the 1980s was pretty damn awesome, so I painted it. Because nothing says gratitude and generosity like corporate-sponsored marketing aimed at children. (Okay, maybe a *tiny* wink.)
By the way, that cityscape I'm using to hide the bottom of the ropes was an afterthought. I had originally planned that the ropes should terminate behind the rocks there at the base, but the ropes needed better bracing than I could arrange in that little space. In the future, I need to replace the skyline hiding the tie-off brackets with a crowd of Lilliputian rope handlers.
Maybe next year.

Has 2020 pushed you to the brink? Thankfully, there's a Superman for that!
Superman #361 (1981)
Saving 21st-century balcony leapers is the least bonkers thing in this story. It turns out that Superman III has 2 secret identities: computer-traffic controller Jon Hudson and tennis professional Lewis "Lew" Parker (and he's kind of bad at both jobs).
2020 is a strange year, even in the comics.

How did Superman get strong enough to break those chains?
Superman #5, June 1940
By drinking straight from the cow, obviously.

Your annual piece of Clark Kent trivia: his glasses are indestructible.
Adventure Comics #304, January 1963
Last year we learned that Clark Kent hides his fireproof shirt and shoes in a pouch in his indestructible cape when he becomes Superman. Now we know how his glasses survive that process.
Next year: how does Superman get a haircut?
Adventure Comics #305, February 1963

A recent survey by the University of Chicago has found that Americans are the least happy we've been in nearly 50 years.
There are probably a lot of reasons for that, but I think it's because 1971 was the last time you could buy this as a 3' x 2' poster for just $1.50 (plus .25¢ postage and handling):
May Superman and peace never go out of style.
