Sharp-eye fans have often spotted the flat underbelly of Superman during his flight across the skies of Metropolis, giving the look of laying on a flat glass table.
Thanks to Video-Capture methods you'll notice in the insert image an unusual portion of the flying rig seen below the cape and squaring off George's back more than the norm. Also notice in the bottom right-corner of the image there is stitching.

This idea was a long time in the making. It began on an August of 2007 evening, while dining with my family in a very lovely San Francisco restaurant. As I gazed above, I noticed a traditional boxing vintage poster ad for Joe Louis Vs. Max Schmeling, dated June 22, 1938. At that moment I wondered about the mythical fight between George and Archie Moore. Was it really true the two were going to meet in the ring for two exhibition rounds? Some newspaper reports in 1959, even go as far to state George was to fight Archie wearing his Superman costume. That's a stretch of the imagination. Hmm, maybe the inspiration for the late 70's oversize comic book Superman Vs. Muhammad Ali illustrated by Neal Adams. I thought, wouldn't it be amazing to find an ad similar to the one hanging on the restaurant wall for George and Archie. I also wondered if the highly knowledgeable fan base would be taken in by a make-shift creation. And so it was the Louis-Schmeling ad I modeled the Archie-George image from.

More important: Recently, Gene LeBell responded to an inquiry from Carl Glass and stated if anyone knew this fight was to take place it would be him, and he never heard of it. I think Gene is best qualified to once and for all dispose of this myth.
