...I got out yesterday, I'm OK. Thank you!
...I don't recall hearing that in the film!!!!!!!!!!! What I noted was one of the Jets, in Doc's candy store, jokes about loving Captain Marvel! ~ The stage version specifically took place in summer 1057, so perhaps Doc got some old stock cheap ~ It was a poor neighborhood, after all.
The still-available novelization (which is based on the original stage version, not the movie ! ~ Could the Superman reference have been in the, presumably longer, and maybe less worried by making referenced to copyrighted characters, stage version?????) adds a subplot of a lesser character (the same Jet?) liking comic books ~ and specifically namedrops Green Arrow and Martian Manhunter!
I have eard that a rehearsal vocal version of the opening dance numer (an instrumental in the final version) had lyrics where the Jets mention liking comic books ~ Great for our image!!!!! ~ and a reference about " how longdoes it take to get to the moon? " but I haven't been able to find out details about it.

I'm sorry to hear that you're in the hospital.
I just picked up a used copy of "Superman at Fifty", a collection of essays about Big Blue published in 1987; a trivia quiz in the back notes that Superman was mentioned in several major 20th century films, including "West Side Story", but the quizmaster didn't provide quotes.
Get well soon, Emerkeith.

Does anyone here know of any newsstand accounts places in your orbit that sell standard comic nooks? Really, any? Barnes & Noble? (few here) Books-A-Million? (none)
