Learn about the Superman controversy among devoted fans of this long-running sitcom.
The popular 90s sitcom Seinfeld is said to contain a reference to Superman and other DC comics in every single episode, a rumor that can be somewhat credited to Seinfeld's well-publicized affection for the character.
Many debates have raged on the Internet among devoted Seinfeld fans over the truth of the rumor, however, and the general consensus is that not every episode of the show contains a superhero reference.
Superman paraphernalia is visible in Seinfeld's apartment in most episodes, but the knickknacks first showed up in episode 56, and some episodes before that don't have a documented reference.
