The quiz is about famous people. It doesn't say they have to be real. Superman is plenty famous enough to be here.

If there is an expansion or a part 2 - consider Leslie Lynch King, Jr., Marion Robert Morrison, Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, and Farrokh Bulsara. You'll be surprised who some of these are!

Kal-El should be Clark Kent instead of Superman - Sure, it's all fictional, so could be argued to suit any point, but Superman was the nickname given him by the Daily Planet because they didn't know his identity, like Boston Strangler or Jack the Ripper. His pseudonym was actually Clark Jerome Kent.

It says "the name they are more commonly known by." I'd bet anything that if you ask 100 people who Kal-El is (assuming they have any idea), many more will say Superman than will say Clark Kent.

Hahaha. At least he can just go by "Cal" if he wants. Jason Lee named his son "Pilot Inspektor." There's nowhere to run from a name like that.

Yeah, I saw William Jefferson Blythe and actually thought, "hmm, that's weird, Bill Clinton's name is William Jefferson," but didn't think to try it because I had no idea his last name had ever been Blythe.
