Superman and Elvis Presley

SUPERMAN! ELVIS PRESLEY! Two of my favorite heroes (one fictional, one historical). Y’know, I observed many years ago that these two seemingly disparate characters actually have quite a few similarities. And, no, I don’t mean the fact that they were both known for wearing capes.
