DC Comics' copyrights are being hijacked in the name of love โ€” or maybe just lust. Following on from the controversy surrounding Playboy's Wonder Woman cover, now Superman is gaining a particularly sexual dimension that'll have DC lawyers jumping to their Bat-Phones.

According to US News and World Report:

The sexual assault prevention center and a feminist group at the University of Michigan are outraged over a dorm T-shirt, saying its references to the Soulja Boy song "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" are demeaning to women, the Michigan Daily reports. The shirt features the Superman logo on the front (helping to spell out "South Quad") and the phrase "Superman that ho" on the back, which is slang for a nonconsensual sex act.

What kind of nonconsensual sex act?

Thanks to the ever helpful Urban Dictionary, we learn that the phrase "Superman" means the following:

when you cum on a girls back and then stick the sheets to her, so when she wakes up in the morning she has a cape.

That spinning sound that you hear? That'll be Superman creators Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel in their graves.
