Jungle Jimmy gets Hitched

BoingBoing posted a link to an awesome site today. It's called Superdickery, and, among other things, it makes a compelling case that Superman is not the bastion of all that is good and pure that he is often made out to be. This is done by simply presenting a series of Superman comic covers.

And not only does Superman come off as a massive dickhead (apparently, he's left Lois to die quite often - I guess she's as resilient as the Man of Steel is), he actually seems to go to incredible lengths to be that massive dickhead. Case in point:
The Bride of Jungle Jimmy
Yes, you read that right. Apparently, in this issue, Superman became a witch doctor so he could set Jimmy Olsen up to marry a female gorilla. Which of course begs the question: why wasn't that the plot they used for the third Superman movie?
