Default 70's TV commercials with Superman

I was just reading that Peter Lupus (Mission Impossible) and Denny Miller (Wagon Train) both played Superman in a series of TV commercials in the 70's promoting the military.

I was a teenager back then, but don't remember them. Does anyone here remember them or happen to have any pics of them as Supes?

...I will keep ever vigilant- they have to be posted somewhere! And speaking of looking good in "the suit"- Afan-is that a picture of you in your avatar in a Superman suit? Any chance that we can see a bigger pic somewhere? That would be groovy!!!

Hi Afan,

I'm French and I'm a fan of Superman and I read on the internet as the highest actor who played Superman was Christopher Reeve (6'4") that I love and I think is the best, however, since it seems that Denny Miller (6'4") and Peter Lupus (6'4") have them also played this role, this information is false, what do you think?

Best regards. Scott1964

Bill was too busy being The Human Torch.
