Larry Niven, famed science-fiction writer, is a big fan of comics. Being a SF writer, he started thinking about how Superman might reproduce and have children. After all, Superman does seem to have a big head start on mere humans in evolutionary terms. Larry Niven wrote, based on his speculations, "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex", one of the funniest pieces of "non-fiction" I've ever read. As he says in the article itself:"The purpose of this article is to point out some medical drawbacks to being a kryptonian among human beings, and to suggest possible solutions."You can (no, you must!) read the article at:http://www.sj-coop.net/~svw/superman.html
