Superman is character from the DC Comics Universe who made a Cameo in Vegeta: Kills Bugs Dead and then later in Death Battle featuring his battle with Goku.

In DBZ AbridgedEdit

Superman was first seen with the rest of the Justice League in meeting at the Hall of Justice about the coming of the Saiyans. He asked Batman about a plan until Aquaman suggested an Army of Whales, Superman later disapproves of his notion.

Superman would later be featured in Screw Attack's Death Battle series in a fight against Goku.

    • The Planet Namek as well the Namekian race were named after from the character Nam-Ek, who debuted in Superman #282 (December, 1974).
  • Since Dragon Ball's Introduction in the United States, Superman has often compared to Goku for a couple of Similarities.
    • Both were sent to Earth as Infants, while a difference is Goku's mission was to conquer the planet and Superman's mission to save lives, and the core of their character in each series as well being raised by Humans
    • Both were once believed they were the last of their kind after their home planets were destroyed (I.E. Vegeta, Nappa, Raditz in DBZ & Supergirl, Zod, Faora in Superman)

  • In DragonBall Z Abridged Special: Bardock: Father of Goku, Grandpa Gohan named the infant Goku, Clark as a reference to Clark Kent after finding him crying after his Saiyan Pod was crashed.
  • In Part 2 of The Punchline, Vegeta, in his Great Ape Form name-drops Christopher Reeve, the actor who portrayed Superman in the movies to Goku asking him what's the opposite of Christopher Walken.
