Superman’s Super-Riter

Superman at Typewriter 3

Unlike my friends, when I was a kid reading Superman comics I remember being most attracted to reporter Clark Kent tapping away at a typewriter that looked not unlike my mother’s Remington No.2 portable, on which I was learning to type. In the “Adventures of Superman” TV series, it was, in fact, the aptly-named Remington Super-Riter that actor George Reeves used.

At the time, I didn’t think about how Superman could type at “super-speed” without jamming the keys or destroying the typewriter.

Great Caesar’s Ghost, would The Daily Planet just replace all those mangled typewriters, no questions asked?
