Continuing our exploration into the more fiendish foes faced by the legendary Superman we feature a truely dastardly adversary...
SUPERMAN VS. SMOKERS!
If you're a fan of the tenacious tobacco plant then you're no friend of Superman! During the late 70s he fought a part time battle against the Cigarette industry when not facing down regular villains, such as Lex Luthor and the like. The dangers of smoking were eventually personified into the character of Nick O'Teen - perverse purveyor of ciggies to unsuspecting youths. Nick O'Teen featured in a series of commercials starting with this one in 1980. Don't take my word for it, but the fluid animation looks to be the work of the amazing, Soho-based Richard Williams Studio.
These were highly influential to an impressionable mind like mine - I wanted to rush out and buy a pack of fags straight away. Not to smoke - but to crush to a pulp, just like good old Superman! Hooray!
