Survey of superheroics by Segar's Popeye
"...two years of examples are enough. The pickings are meager and the pattern is clear. Even if we cite Popeye's comparative indestructibility (he cannot be killed, but can be battered, crippled, and knocked loopy by sufficiently sizable or tricky opponents) and mention his more astonishing feats (such as lifting an entire house or stepping out of a stalled "airyplane" only to land on his chin after a fall of "thousings" of feet), it is evident that Segar's Popeye is only incidentally a superhero.
