So... That leaves the question... What or who is A Inverse? My vote goes to Bizarro.

A^(-1) would be Kryptonite?

A^-1 would clearly be his glasses, as once he has those, he becomes Clark Kent. Kryptonite kills him.

Maybe the phone booth is the inverse.

Shouldn't it be A-inverse is Clark Kent, so that AxA-inverse=identity?

Well, Superman's "identity" is Clark Kent so I felt the joke worked better that way. A^{-1} will forever remain a mystery - although there are a lot of people who are cleverererer than me, and they have it all figured out already :P

A-1 = Steak sauce?

You didn't completely abuse the fact that this comic's number is 42. I don't know what to think about that, really.

Dunno Aku, but 42 has a lot of meaning to it...

AA^-1=A/A=1

Superman's real identity is superman, Clark Kent is his disguise, get your facts straight!

JackXD, Clark Kent is referred to as Superman's "secret identity"

obviously, A^(-1) must be his glasses.

Shouldn't we first ask ourselves if Superman has an inverse?

Wouldn't that be Lex Luthor, his arch-nemesis?

should be A transpose--->>

finally a clever one

What if superman was singular?
