Superman, the Geek Test, and the Big Bang Theory
Comic books are sometimes treated as acid tests for someone's geekiness.

The funny thing about it, is the way that comics always worm their way into pop culture.
Jerry Seinfeld had a bit of a Superman obsession, and his takes with the animated Superman in American Express commercials were hilarious.
This season, a Monday night sitcom called the Big Bang Theory has a bit about Superman and several other geek type exchanges. One was brought up on another blog (thanks for reminding me guys)! They also directed me to the YoutTube clip below.
